Pros

Great project management app or just because you need a issue management, subtasking, bug tracking and burndown charts app. The user interface and user experience works best.

Cons

It is awesome for collaboration and the integrations are seamless.

Feature rich project management program

2018-04-15

It has an intuitive design and is quite easy to use.

Pros

Feature rich project management tool that does more than just manage stories and tasks at a project level.

Cons

As with any tool that has increased features and capabilities, there is a bit of a learning curve when compared to other products.

At first Backlog seems like a bit much but now our team could not function with out it.

2017-08-31

Streamlined workflow and the ability to see who's accountable for what and where projects are. It's help us stay on track and keep projects under budget and on time.

Pros

It's task oriented without feeling like a burden.

Cons

When I type (@) on a Backlog comment or description I want the list of usernames to show.

Backlog Review

Solid PM tool with flexible pricing options.

Pros

Solid Project Management tool for software development teams. Interface is intuitive and training is minimal.

Cons

Sometimes the more advanced features you are looking for are only available in the higher cost subscriptions.

Used this product in school and work

2018-04-06

Pros

What I like most about the tool is that it provides an easy to use interface that allows for team collaboration and sub-tasking.

Cons

The only thing that I would say that's negative is that it runs slow at times but I believe that's a result of our environment.

My experience for backlog is awesome.

2017-09-01

Pros

It has given a great platform to collaborate for work.

Cons

Yes, if you talk about cons I do feel there is need for internal documents creation like Excel ppt etc. If I want to make some data or have issue which requires tabular form, I don't have much options than just to create an excel and attach it's links.

A great alternative ticketing system for teams

2018-03-26

Pros

We're using the basic plan and it provides us a great deal of flexibility for our teams.

Cons

Make sure you setup on the right plan to start your trial as you cannot change while you are on trial which is somewhat challenging if you setup a stack of work prior to your change.
