Erik Cruz

Assembla brings us closer together!

2016-12-13

The team at Yard Freaks have had a great experience with using Assembla as a project management tool.

Pros

The card wall is a nice drag and drops feature that makes it quick and easy to stay organized.

Cons

Having a desktop notification pop-up when you receive a new ticket/updated ticket would be an awesome feature to have.

Strive to be best toolset for development organization

2020-02-11

It is ok for smaller teams. It is affordable. Not much of online documentation, but most parts are intuitive.

Pros

It has embedded document management workflow.

Cons

At the least the versions that we used in the past. No management reports.

Used to be a good project management tool, not anymore.

2018-04-30

Project management and source control.

Pros

It used to be a convenient SCRUM/Kanban - style project management tool with seamless SVN integration.

Cons

This year they raised the prices more than 10 times while the system itself not only didn't get any better but actually became so glitchy and unreliable, we can hardly use it anymore. Moving on to another platform.

Great project management software

2018-09-26

Pros

Software tracks each individual users contributions, and also has a built in wiki to document the project.

Cons

Lanes could not be initially customized, and we didn't like the order of them.

I started using Assembla two years ago for 18 months daily

2018-01-16

I can get information about my task, my priority, sprint, estimated, change, acceptance criteria

Pros

Like mentioning, notification, workflow, repositories, recent activities. Especially the recent activities, that was the first to go when I opened Assembla.

Cons

This tool is great for a big team that needs everything in one package.

Great Project Management Tool Unfortunately Super-Seeded

2018-03-22

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.

A great online source control for projects

2019-04-22

A great software to use for source control on your projects.

Pros

Assembla is great at managing large digital projects, not only within an office, but also when working with people remotely.

Cons

The price is good for small teams, but once the team starts to get bigger, or you add people who won't be permanent, but you need them added for a short time, it can start to get pricey.

Gets the job done

2018-11-02

Our company has a large number of ongoing projects with even more milestones in progress at the same time split by teams.

Pros

As a developer, the main functions I interacted with are the repository and ticket management. Both are intuitive and easy to use.

Cons

In the ticket management function, the quick add module view could be slightly wider but this is a personal preference.

Organized year round

2016-11-18

I love the use of related child and parent tickets to break down tasks to make them more manageable to keep things organized.

Pros

VERY easy to use and learn.

Cons

I wish there was a desktop notification when there is an update to a ticket I follow. this would help more than email notifications for me.

Simple and Great Defect Management tool but lacks some features

2018-11-29

Pros

I have used many defect management tools in the past but this one is undoubtedly the best defect management tool.

There should be some options to manage the requirements as well. It would be very helpful.

Good product, but a little pricey

2020-01-14

It is easy to link from one area of a project to another and user management is a breeze.

Pros

The integration of wikis, git repos, and a ticketing system all in one product offering is pretty convenient; and user management is straightforward.

Cons

The pricing is a little high compared to other product offerings.

Would recommend to anyone that works on more than 1 tasks

2016-11-08

It helps me keeps track of what tasks are more important.

Pros

I like that I can see everything that is going on from the stream view without having to spend too much time.

Cons

The only cons about assembla is when you have a ticket open and if someone updates it, it constantly flashes, can get distracting.

The Workplaces edition shines

2019-01-01

One feature away from being the all-around Agile and Distributed team tool but it is still excellent.

Pros

Every features is thoughtfully designed to help my team stay on track and improve communication to ship the code faster and more efficient.

Cons

As there is no helpdesk feature, you'll still need to use outside software, but my hope is that this feature is added soon.

Prior to Assembla it was confusing to figure out where we left off on a task and sometimes it would be difficult to progress to the next step because we were taking a step back to review prior emails.

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

2020-01-14

Assrmbla was basic, offering no reporting as a project tool, and basic scrum options.

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.
