A product persons product tool.

Reviewed 5 years ago

I've been able to mostly live inside of one tool when working with my team. That pays for itself.

Pros

- RAPID data entry - if you have an idea of your first stories the views used allow you to rapidly write, press enter create a new story, and create another. This is actually massively time saving. - One stop shop - you can go from ideation to planning to delivery using Craft. It's what actually drew me to the product itself. - Picture support - pictures are supported in card view, so people at a glance can see what you're actually working on. - Idea Dump - you can quickly go from random thoughts to actual user stories in seconds - Fields - you can even add story points, effort, custom fields to help plan and prioritise.

Cons

- Sometimes it's not accurate when it comes to who edited a story/item. This can cause quite the problem for paper trails. - Zappier support is flaky at best.

Craft.io - A product management tool definitely worth your attention!

Reviewed a year ago

It's been really good for the main...it's easy to label this as something of a jack of all (product) things but the master of none part of the saying doesn't do it justice! I like the way new features come readily and they are listening to their users. Even the handful of times of needed their support the answers have been always helpful. I'd used Aha! in the past and is way less of a cumbersome beast in comparison.

Pros

It feels like a product tool created by product people. The product is easy to use and no problems to integrate with Jira. Setting things up to how I want was simple enough and the broad range of features. Road mapping is pretty dynamic and easy to switch views subject to audience. It's great value for money in relation to others.

Cons

Whilst the road mapping part is very good, cosmetically it is weaker than others (like Productboard or Airfocus). OKR management is a bit limited currently. Setting them up and connecting them is totally fine but I'd like to see better visibility on how well (or not) they are being achieved.

Supports the entire product management life cycle with a rich and easy to use interface

Reviewed 6 years ago

I need a tool to track documents and workflow associated with product management. This tool does that very well.

Pros

- Allows me to capture all the documents I need from 1) feature prioritization, 2) discovery, 3) design, 4) User testing all in one place. (Also supports implementation but we still use Pivotal Tracker for that.) - Very natural feeling interface, particularly once you learn how the story attributes (theme, epic, story type, version, sprint, team, and worker) work in the interface. - Allows stories to be assigned to different teams (and sprints for each team) for different stages of development (prioritization, discovery, design, user testing, etc.) is awesome - The kanban boards are well designed and implemented

Cons

- It's still an early stage product so some of the features are incomplete and I occasionally run into bugs. That said, they are really responsive with bug fixes and feature requests. - Some features I would like, for instance, having kanban boards contain stories and tasks from multiple products, aren't yet available. (It's on the roadmap) - The roadmap diagram feature is weak. (It's slated for improvement.)

Using it for more than a year

Reviewed 5 years ago

More visibility on who is working for what. Still much better than Jira. There could be more advances solutions like AgileFant.

Pros

We have been using the tool for our software development practices for quite a while. Supports multiple products. We are doing weekly sprints and are now on sprint 65 or so. Supports all essential features, like image uploads, attachments, planning, etc.

Cons

UI is not always very intuitive. For example, deleting a ticket might not always be very clear where to find this feature. The whole UI is very different from other similar software. There is a learning curve. I suggest you try the software before paying. There are some small quirks that you would expect the software to perform. One example is selecting multiple tickets to move them to another swimlane by drag-and-dropping. This seems to only move the first ticket, even you selected multiple.

Personal review for Craft

Reviewed 10 months ago
Pros

Craft's data entry approach is extremely fast, allowing you to get from a concept to a finished story in seconds. Craft is a fantastic all-around tool, which is why I chose it in the first place. Using the card view, you can add visuals to tales so that everyone can see what's happening on in real time. It's also quite simple to turn your random ideas into user tales. You can also use story points, effort, and custom fields to help you organize and prioritize your stories.

Cons

It can be difficult to navigate, requiring more effort than necessary to discover goods that have not been correctly labeled.

Does what you need

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

It's fast to create tasks and the drag & drop system is easy to navigate.

Cons

The unique terminology--it's hard to figure out what a simple project, milestone or task is when they call it epic, story, etc.

Totally in Love with the Simplicity

Reviewed 6 years ago

Built shared understanding with a geographically fragmented team. Getting on the same page with a virtual team is not easy, this tool is greatly assisting in making that happen.

Pros

The visual user story view is a game changer. Most tools place emphasis on plan and build, but Craft excels and wrangling in the mountain of spreadsheets and docs in the discovery phase. This tool ensures shared understanding with the entire team, arguably the most critical aspect to a successful product launch. Oh, and yes, it does push and integrate with Jira with two-way sync. So there is little reason to not give this tool a go. Last thing I'll say, the tool is beautifully designed and so intuitive and easy to use. For that alone I'm a fan.

Cons

Although they're constantly working on the product, I'm eager to have a mobile companion app as part of the offering.

Thanks for your review!

Great tool for product management

Reviewed 5 years ago

Developing a product roadmap for CRM for a business spread across multiple geographies has been great due to the different levels available in the story map, and ability to tag, apply custom fields and link to initiatives.

Pros

Easy to organise stories in story map with Feature and Topic levels above Epics

Cons

Some features which seem basic are not there, like uploading stories, or exporting story details in csv.

Nice but hard to use

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Craft.io is a clean space to organize ideas and features of a new product. It comes with good tools/ideas : Story Mapping, Story ordering, PDF generation

Cons

The good ideas of Craft is not well served the app model. Some strict choices (like Theme/Epic/Story) can be blocking points when the projet organisation isn't Craft compatible. The good ideas of Craft is not well served by the app UI. It's often difficult to find the good action link, the place of a feature used yesterday.

Very good product management tool which cover the whole product management lifecycle

Reviewed 5 years ago

It is our go to tool to manage the development of our products, and to share our progress both internally and with our customers.

Pros

The product is very well aligned with the product management needs, covering the entire lifecycle from user feedbacks to work and releases planning.

Cons

The interface, although very well designed, requires a little time to get used to the workflow that the tool offers.

One of the best product management tools

Reviewed 5 years ago

As the product owner, I don’t have to manage tons of slides, spreadsheet, images, notes etc so I can focus on my job. The complete product management tools I ever use!

Pros

The insight & roadmap part, the features are useful so I don’t have to shift between slides, spreadsheet, and other files

Cons

Also the insights part, there’s some features that I need which is still not there. I hope there’ll be added soon

Craft is a powerful PM tool

Reviewed 5 years ago

Im mostly using it for product strategy and roadmapping at the moment, but hopefully we want to use it for our all full product management and development efforts.

Pros

I love that I can use it from the start of a product strategy till managing and releasing. It helps with the full cycle of managing a product.

Cons

Since we are an independent product studio, I'd love for Craft to create a way where we can add client accounts (free) so they can add their comments and only view certain aspects of the product management effort.

Pros

Craft is the most comprehensive solution available. It is the only one I have found that offers a full range of product development tracking from early ideation through production and testing. It is also a beautifully designed peice of software that is clean, modern, and a joy to use.

Cons

Craft is young and so I still run into some glitches that makes it not work the way it is intended; however it is clearly being actively improved so fixes are always on the way.

Product Planning

Pros

Has all the features that I would want in a Product Management tool: Sprint planning, Idea backlog, and charting

Cons

It is a bit too expensive and the UI is not intuitive. I got really frustrated clicking around trying to figure out how to move from screen to screen.
