Overall Satisfaction with Atlassian Jira Align (formerly AgileCraft)

Atlassian Jira Align (formerly Agile Craft) is used by all the software, firmware, and test engineering teams. Any groups that need to track work on software tasks find these useful, and teams that interface with them then pick up the tools to communicate projects, tasks, and priorities to them. It is NOT used by outside teams, even within engineering. Mechanical Engineering is a great example, where interface directly to software teams is limited, and work tracking can be done in more traditional or personalized ways, and collaboration is usually done differently. They probably COULD use Jira, but many people prefer not to or dislike adjusting to new ways of tracking themselves.
  • Great for work with several teams
  • Great for tracking diverse tasks in various groups for common goals
  • This service is sometimes hard to navigate and organize.
  • Comments and tasks can often slip between the cracks. They are always there, but sometimes hard to find if put on the backlog, or left alone.
  • Helps deliver software projects on time
  • Used to complete improvement mini-projects
Atlassian Jira Align (formerly AgileCraft) is formatted in a way that's conducive to software development and Agile methodology. These other programs have their own, different uses in tracking, and are typically clunkier than Atlassian Jira Align (formerly AgileCraft).

Atlassian Jira Align (formerly AgileCraft) is great for tracking software tasks. It can be used by managers to keep track of the work that developers are doing. It is not well suited to tracking groups outside of these teams, and not very useful for communication in issues between groups.
