I liked the inclusion of the Wiki as well, and I like the tiered subscription model they use, making it easy to find a level of feature availability that suites your team's needs.

Pros

Great, and I always feel that they are looking forward to get my feedback and improve the product, and the product is great and friendly.

Silviu T.

I like that the software is easy to use, but has many powerful tools and features. If you just want to create a simple kanban, it is very easy to set up.

TE

Troy E.

Among other very nice features, the priorization matrixes (ICE, Eisenhower etc), and the deep integration between multi-lane Kanban with Gantt views is a total win for us.

Amazing. Perfect tool for scrum

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Quick development and customer support! Atlaz perfectly supports the needs for the team and scrum. The roadmap looks very good too.

Cons

We use backlog items point. This is not implemented (yet). We can add business value and effort, but when the backlog item is moved to the sprint, the data is not visible anymore.

Hygger for SAFe

Reviewed a year ago

Trying to support an integrated multi-team management activity using the SAFe methodology.

Pros

The product worked great for setting up team backlogs and managing through the processes. Kanban views were easily configured for effective use.

Cons

I was unable to set up a PI planning board from a backlog of EPICS and then flow features easily to team backlogs for further breakdown, stories, etc. Could be doable it was unclear on how to do so.

Thank you for the review! Feel free to contact Hygger Support Team so they can assist you with the Backlog management and PI Planning. They will be happy to help you.

A great way to combine your roadmap with your kanban sprint board.

Pros

The kanban board and filtering is outstanding. Supports backlog, kanban, roadmap, and time tracking..

Its quite overwhelming the amount of functionality, this makes it rather tricky to get started with.

Hygger presents a very clear status of where the tasks are at in the flow to completion.

Reviewed 3 years ago

Hygger is great for organizing and breaking things down for businesses. Its column organization are way easy to manage and handle.

Pros

Checklists and work boards are simple to create and manage. Multiple team members can cooperate once invited to the board. Also it's super scalable I can use for both very complicated and very simple products. Backlog board helps us to organize our product backlog and pick out the most valued features.

Cons

Since we are a small team, it's a bit expensive for us.

Faster project management

Pros

I like the simplicity of this product. Jira is overcomplicated for small projects. I like also that you're open to features requests.

Cons

Task rating scoring would be better if it's based on 'RICE' estimation framework. Moving tasks to 'done' should be synchronized between backlog and Kanban boards.

Vendor response

Now you may rate and prioritize tasks by RICE technique. At the same time, we have added the Push option that allows you to easily link and move the parent and child tasks to the Done column.

Software development cycle management...

Pros

Mostly I like the sprint boards and pushing the tasks from the backlog to a sprint boards, it was really helpful in managing the software development lifecycle with the team.

Cons

That updating a pushed/transferred task doesn't affect all the original tasks, in case the task status changed or got completed ... etc.

Vendor response

Thank you for sharing your experience with our app :) We have updated the Push option that allows you to easily link and move the parent and child tasks to the Done column. Now it's time to push tasks from Backlog to Sprint.

Great tool for manage multiple projects

I liked to have multiple Boards for the same project, and all the tools mixed together like Roadmaps and Sprint Boards

A lot of functionality still doesn't exists, there are some bugs when copying tasks from Backlog to Sprint Boards, and it would be nice to have an integration with Google Calendar

Feature rich and a perfect fit for Kanban teams and startups that need to get organized.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Lots of useful features that cannot be found on other products, like WIP limits on the Kanban board, the value chart on the backlog and the integration with third party applications. The support team can solve any problem, they are the best.

Cons

It can be difficult to organize your boards, teams and companies are first. Also deleting presets can make you loose data if you tried to use those boards.

It's a great tool for working in Agile projects.

Reviewed 4 years ago

The ease of use and navigation speed up my workflow, so it saves a ton of my time.

Pros

The ease of use and intuitiveness of the menu are great. I tried many online project managing tools, but hygger stands out here as it speeds up my workflow.

Cons

I hope that all desktop features will be available in mobile version ie. roadmap. Additionally, I'm waiting for the moment when both Kanban board and Backlog share the same data, so its duplication is not necessary. Besides that it matches my needs.

Vendor response

Thank you for the review, Matt! We have finally updated the mobile apps. You may re-install it to check. Also, prioritization is available on each board type so you may manage everything on one board :)

Best way to communicate with stakeholders

Easy to begin, fast to learn how to do complex things, I'm using it to build a backlog and a Product Roadmap to communicate with stakeholders and clients, ensuring transparency e speed in sharing informating. Using the priorization features I can decide with easy what to build first.

Cons

To me for now there's none, everytinhg that I need is there, maybe some mobile features.

Invaluable tool for remote teams

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

We use Hygger to manage our remote development team. It has all the tools we need to efficiently plan and manage sprints. We also use it to prioritise the wider business tasks, and manage our full feature backlog. Built-in timesheets allow us to estimate more accurately and plan future future sprints.

Cons

It's a small thing, but everything is the same kind of task, so if we need to create a bug, we need to create a tag or label it somehow. It would be nice to create different kinds of task and have them obviously displayed as such and be able to report on them.

Agile project management.

Reviewed 2 years ago

Hygger is one of my favourite agile project management. It is easy to understand and use. The UI is modern. They offer unlimited user for even free plans which is great for NGO's.

Pros

Every business needs project management and hyger is one of my best choices. It has everything, even a free plan offers everything without any limitation. I mostly used to manage my agile development, which is a huge problem for me as I have to single-handedly manage the workes. the backlog entry also available and a very useful feature. As I don't have all the time to update project regularly, backlog saves my day. The todo and lists are really handy and with collaboration tool, I can divide all workes through my workers. The desktop is simple and clean, reporting is very aggressive and have extensive options. Registering to the site is very easy, and needed to activation via email.

Cons

I did not explore the whole options yet, it has so many options to explore. But after using project management software I did not get any cons for hygger.

More robust than Trello and very Intuative

Atlaz has all of the features of Trello PLUS a lot more that have been very valuable such as the ability to estimate and log time, an awesome feature for evaluating the effort vs value of your backlog in a Magic Quadrant style and a lot more. It's been great for working with contractors and keeping everyone in sync, up to date and really helps with planning a product roadmap. I'd recommend for any startup or enterprise.

Very interesting Agile project management system

Reviewed 2 years ago

A very good agile kanban board and I like it using. It is very simple and easy to use for most of the parts, but need some UI improvement and feels kind of heavy on my pc and mobile.

Pros

All feature is free, a very interesting and attractive feature. 100MB of internal storage and integration with all major platforms. This is a gem in my toolbox. Well sign up is painless, just activate from my email and follow their wizard and My company is created. I have some 2-month backlog from various projects to catch up and got this template to create a project and started working. I am familiar with kanban board and this agile kanban board is very simple to master.

Cons

The UI is not accessible from my laptop screen as I use an old laptop, "Use template" option is hidden so low and not scrollable at all. I have to zoom out to see the button.

Potential is there for as a Jira and Trello replacement

Reviewed 4 years ago

Product insight and forecasting for CRO.

Pros

We are using Atlaz for our product roadmap and CRO prioritizing. The task scoring helps me understand where our effort is best spent for maximum ROI . It is very easy to setup and customise boards and build team workflows to support the steps creating greater accountability in our team.

Cons

It is frustrating that you cant link a task from backlog into a roadmap for forecast planning. At present, you have to move or push it which creates a new task. This may be because of how I am using it for CRO, but this feature would be beneficial in a lot of cases. It might also be good to allow more customisation in a task by adding custom text areas, currently there is only description and comments. I would love one for hypothesis, acceptance criteria, solution, considerations etc. This would change in different use cases, so similar to checklist, have an option for text area.

Vendor response

Thank you for the review! It helped us to see what to build next. After some consideration, we added the Link option to Roadmap. It links your tasks, and the made changes will be updated on both boards. It's time to log into the company account and try it:)
