Pros and Cons

  • It provides a good basic overview of where tasks are on a timeline (particularly helpful for a pull-based approach).
  • It provides a good collaborative space to have multiple folks commenting on multiple tasks.
  • It does a good job of managing very basic visual elements of an agile development cycle.
  • There isn't a strong UI on the tool. Customizations can be difficult to make.
  • There isn't a very robust communications component on the tool to facilitate conversations—it's WYSIWYG.
  • The mobile story isn't fully developed yet. It could stand to be stronger on mobile devices.

Pros and Cons

  • Kanban board is a great visual that shows every team member's projects and all the important information on a single page.
  • Kanban integrates well with JIRA to track and manage projects and quickly retrieve specific information on a project.
  • Kanban allows easy navigation with drag and drop features and smartly notifies the user of each action.
  • Kanban does not show the task or story clearly. You have to open the project separately to view the details of the project.
  • Kanban gives a higher level project management view but it lacks customization and personal settings features.
  • I would like to see Kanban provide mobile access to their tool, data, and board. This would be very useful for all companies and provide an increase in efficiency and productivity.

Pros and Cons

  • The time tracking feature is flawless.
  • The process and progress visibility is great (the task cards are small, so that it is easy to view the process without having to scroll in or out and reading the entire headings).
  • The uptime of the service is critically good. I had tested an alternative solution previously and had been often left cut off from my workflow due to service maintenance hours.
  • Some of the boards we have could do with more than 22 card colors, although it is enough for most projects.
  • Really looking forward to the iOS application, which is said to be coming in 2015.

Pros and Cons

  • Ability to add 'cards' which track bugs, tasks, etc.
  • User can change the look of the cards (colors). Can change priority, Who the card is assigned to, Card Type, and many other customizations.
  • User is able to add attachments and links to a card.
  • User is able to add comments and track card history.
  • Search functionality needs some improvement.
  • Would be nice: ability to send a notification to selected people when a card is created/opened.
  • Unable to sort cards - change their order visually.
