Pros

The web-hosted version of Target Process is outstanding for a small company that wants sophisticated collaboration software without a dedicated IT staff.
I initially liked the program with its well-designed user interface, which developers still continue to improve. It is always easy to get help from customer support.
Overall, I really like Target Process and would recommend it. It is easier to setup than a full-blown Jira instance, and provides the most useful tools and capabilities without too much effort.

Pros

Powerful reporting - easy to see where projects are over/under spending. Fantastic UX with many control points throughout the software.
Filters on project pages to see only your tasks, or only certain tasks filtered by tags is neat. Nice integrations and full REST API is a nice addition.
It is an enjoyable experience, it made some company processes very easy and unbureaucratic, we have much more visibility of the projects and it unified some tasks that were made separately.

Cons

There is no possibility to add files and comments to tasks, and there are no ready-made templates for projects in Targetprocess. The study was very long due to the lack of detailed training manuals.
The UI is slow and unattractive and after 6 months trying to get JIRA Porfolio to work (a cool idea!) I could never get it to and the response from Atlassian was disappointing overall.
Roadmaps are woefully underdeveloped (though missing altogether from similar priced competitors), and the movement of cards and column adjustments appears to be a few years behind in its handling.

Cons

Not usable on mobile devices, and disappointed by the aggressive upselling and hidden cancellation terms.
I think the feature that is missing the most is being able to see on the scheduler that the resource was already allocated with tasks in the projects.
No approve button after filling timesheet for double checks. Impossible to release sprint & have issues removed from done column.

Targetprocess

Great board, but crappy reporting

Reviewed 4 years ago

I really like using the boards, but they can be difficult to setup. Also some of the business logic setup around the boards doesn't jive with what we want to do sometimes. The worst part for me is forecasting and reporting. It takes a lot of data for the burn down to be accurate. Which is frustrating.

Pros

The ease of the boards once they are setup.

Cons

Difficult to setup boards. The reporting is not great. Limitations to what I can add logic wise.

Targetprocess

Great customizability at the expense of complexity

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall support has been responsive, and we have been using it for several years. However this past year we had 20 users on a separate product line switch to another product. Therefore we are about half the users on this system right now than we had before.

Pros

This product seemed to fit our use case the best, where we have 1 team responsible for multiple products that all have independent release cycles. It handles that with release planning well. Also liked the Idea portal, though it was a bit tricky to setup. Having a better way to get users into the system and more granularity on the roles for the ideas portal would have made it much easier.

Cons

There are times where I just cannot get the data i need for a report. I work with support and they get me close, but then nothing. For example, there is no easy way for TP to forecast your sprint velocity based on the average velocity of the last X sprints. I've hacked it with some custom fields, but it still requires manual entry at each sprint launch. There are other issues, such as giving a velocity over time graph when your sprint durations may change (like a holiday week or something).
