Overall Satisfaction with ZenHub

We use ZenHub for the software team backlogs and sprint items. It allows us to create boards that provide intuitive Kanban/Scrum boards for the team to use during a sprint. It also allows our product owner to groom the backlog, and acts as a great information radiator throughout the organization so stakeholders can see the status at a glance.
  • Integration with GitHub.
  • Great Kanban board functionality.
  • A way to display a read-only Kanban/Scrum board for corporate use. Currently, you must have an account to view a board.
  • While the reporting features are good, it would be great to have some updated Scrum sprint tools to assist with estimating and the like.
  • Ease of use for development teams to update progress.
  • Perfect integration with GitHub.
The only other program we tried that had somewhat seamless integration with our GitHub projects is GitKraken's Globoards. Globoards has a long way to go to compete, though it does have a read-only option for boards so it can be displayed corporately as an information radiator without requiring an additional license.
Support is good, but quite honestly, I haven't needed any support since 2015. As I remember, I was required to open a ticket and had to wait a few days for resolution. I give it a rating of 8 because of the lag in getting a solid resolution, but it was resolved adequately.

If you use GitHub/GitHub Projects, then ZenHub integrates perfectly with your projects. It is fantastic for backlog grooming, sprint estimation, and planning. It does require a license to view any board, so when we wanted to make the boards available corporately, we decided to try GloBoards, which does provide the ability to display a read-only board for information radiation purposes. That lasted about a month before the team started complaining and found that the functionality of GloBoards was lacking, thus making the teams less productive. So we went back to ZenHub and have been using it ever since.
