Pros

For people who work with computer on a daily basis (not programmers) it is good tool to report work and tasks progress. It has nice integration with Slack communicator.

As an engineer I am satisfied with Assembla reporting capabilities and task tracing. It is helpful to revert/find certain activities for reference.

MS

Michal S.

The product is easy to use, the most important feature that I use everyday is the the Tickets and Wiki sections. The cardwall view is excellent.

Pros

It is an outstanding platform easy to use, with a great UI design, and wide range of customization and con configuration.

LD

Luis D.

It is so easy to get started with Jira. They have awesome integrations into other atlassian products as well (we were using Trello before) so switching to Jira was almost seamless.

AA

Ameer A.

Perfect for resource management and issue tracking, good for project managers to find out where the team is spending maximum time and helps in bandwidth allocation, understanding team velocity.

DC

Debodirno C.

Cons

I don't like that there is no emergency line as it should be in Kanban theory. I can't customise priorities.

AK

Andrzej K.

Why are these different. I only use Assembla when I have to and it's always painful.

KM

Keith M.

Right click and open in a new tab is awful because the tab takes over the window so to open multiple I need to right click, open in new tab, switch back to the previous tab, rinse and repeat.

PH

Paul H.

Cons

It has limited number of software integrations. Error notifications can be annoying sometimes.

NG

Nitesh G.

If you accidentally click on the wrong name, the submitter gets a notification when it is assigned, and then another notification when you fix this by assigning it to the correct name.

MS

Mary S.

Sometimes Jira does not work for some time and that makes it hard to track work. It has server problems often.

Project tool review only: An outdated step-down from other project tools

Reviewed 2 years ago

Assembla was a tool we used for a short amount of time while I joined my company, but I quickly dropped it and moved to Jira. (frankly after jira updates I wouldn't recommend either for small teams). Assrmbla was basic, offering no reporting as a project tool, and basic scrum options. I would not recommend this to manage your development work flows.

Pros

The ability to see who else was observing a ticket while you were.

Cons

The clumsy implementation of scrum and poor handling of sprints through milestones. The lack of decent work flows and the outdated feel.

Need more Project Management reporting & Visual appealing interface

Reviewed 10 months ago
Pros

Simplicity is good with few handy options.

Cons

Should consider Gantt chart & release management features from Jira & other portals. we are gaming company so we wish your interface to be uplifted & soon we will share you something interested based on your own Assembla.

Assembla

Great Project Management Tool Unfortunately Super-Seeded

Reviewed 4 years ago

Tracked and version controlled website releases. Easy oversight of website epics, stories and tasks.

Pros

Reliability, I've used Assembla for more than 10 years and I do not recall any significant downtime, sure there were some issues but they were typically resolved within an hour. It does work as a method by which to manage your software development, a repository (SVN or GIT) is built into the solution.

Cons

It's expensive for what it is, it isn't that versatile (for example, you can't modify the status's to customise your status or workflow) and the pricing recently once the ownership changed hands. Depending on your user count, Bitbucket and JIRA may compare more favourably. The application really hasn't continued to evolve that much since I first signed up 10 years ago.

Assembla Review

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

It has deep integration of source control system with their project management tool so you can track commits using the same view/page that you use for tracking ticket comments.

Cons

Assembla was acquired by some other company and the first thing they did is to raise the price. In short time, from one of the cheapest products, they become one of the most expensive products. And that change was very fast and ugly; I remember that we needed to add just one additional member to the team and they said to us that we are on legacy plan, and that we need to move to their standard plan, and pay something like 5-10X more for the same service. Instead of paying more, we moved to Jira :-)
