The user interface is very good. It is more intuitive in nature. It is easy to use and robust in operation. The dashboard is designed on modernized UI and the interface is also intuitive. I can easily navigate things on my own.

Taskworld

I don't know anything about pricing, but if Taskworld were an inexpensive choice I would say it works fairly well for small to mid-sized companies with complex workflows. It's great for managing tasks that move through multiple-stage pipelines that aren't necessarily linear. However, depending on the price it's not worth the spend for all the technical difficulties it brought. Our company was relatively small (60 employees) and yet we constantly faced "server issues" and bugs and even software-wide crashes that seriously impacted our ability to do business. If you choose to go with Taskworld, be sure you have a solid disaster-management plan in place just in case, because chances are you'll experience bugs on a weekly basis

  • Github support

Taskworld

  • Task Management - It's super easy to track progress on Taskworld. If your team keeps up with it, you'll never wonder where in the project someone is, because it's marked.
  • Project checklists - Having these to organize out smaller portions of the tasks makes everything so much easier and helps keep track of progress.

Cons

Backlog

  • The biggest drawback that I want Backlog to fix as soon as possible is that is does not provide any place to explain the problem or bug virtually.
  • There is a need for a tab or space to attach screenshot or video to easily explain the bug or problem in the project.

Taskworld

  • Taskworld crashed ALL THE TIME. It was so frustrating. You'd notice certain functions not working (like adding an additional location or reassigning a task) and then the whole thing would go down. We lost at least 3 individual business days due to Taskworld acting up.
  • We often requested features and bug fixes that took forever to be resolved. Taskworld staff was responsive, but issues took too long to resolve. As a small example, the GIF functionality of chat and task communication was down for weeks with no explanation.
  • Small glitches were frequent and obnoxious. We had to clear caches all the time in hopes that we'd be able to use Taskworld the way it was intended. There were many times employees didn't get notified of their "@ mentions" or weren't seeing notifications at all. It was a nightmare of death by a thousand cuts.

I would give 9 but one less because of the high price.

I can't say too much about the support we've gotten from Taskworld, because we haven't needed it. There haven't been any issues we've to have to reach out about because it works too well. Given the quality of the application, I'm sure the quality of the support follows.

Alternatives Considered

Backlog

Backlog has all of the top-notch features to increase productivity, visibility, and project tracking. Backlog is easy to use. I first just logged in to the platform and it was [ready] to go. I easily started working on it and it started giving me the bugs’ details on our project. Always available for queries. Listen to the queries very attentively and try to give a solution on the go if applicable. Otherwise, take some time and respond with the advanced workable solution in the limited time frame.

Taskworld

We used Basecamp very briefly before switching over to Taskworld. Basecamp wasn't nearly as dynamic as Taskworld and served more as a static archive than an active workflow software.

Return on Investment

Backlog

  • Software interns get easily used to this tool.
  • One who works in the SDLC gets recognized and it's easy to track rank board.

Taskworld

  • Efficient task assigning and management
  • No stories left behind! It's too easy to track what's been worked on.
