Project Management Tools for the Dev Savvy

2019-03-19

Having used more robust project/task management products in the past, ZenHub feels a little lightweight, but having introduced it to multiple teams who have not, setup and adoption was quick due to ease of use and an intuitive interface.

Pros

A customizable Kanban board added planning capabilities to help organize our teams' approach to time and work management.

Cons

With multiple repositories and a complex workflow, ZenHub can be slow to load.

It's powerful to integrate directly into your GitHub project

2018-07-31

Pros

The kanban tasks are linked to the Github project directly with all the issues and detail, just one single click can see all the details and configure for sprints and milestones.

Cons

The flow of the Kanban is not able to customized and sometimes it's not easy to use for the projects not so much related to the development.

Easier way to manage GitHub Projects, Tickets and Sprints

2019-05-07

It does have a nice UI and makes it easier to look at and review projects and issues, especially with Sprints, but I am not sure if it is worth paying for.

Pros

Staying ontop of a sprint and moving around tickets in projects is much easier to do in ZenHub than GitHub.

Cons

This software does cost money and not sure if the features it brings is worth paying for each team member to have access to ZenHub.

Zenhub is a lightweight project management tool embedded to your github repo.

2018-02-07

Pros

It basically includes most of the functions for agile project management and users only have to install the addon.

Cons

This might not be a fault whereas an special feature I missed sometimes

Awesome when paired with GitHub

2018-08-30

Pros

ZenHub's kanban view is great for me to understand my project management easily with its ability to filter vastly!

Cons

When zenhub goes down, there's a vague indication that it is not derivative of the end user's side.

Power tools for GitHub issues

2018-08-07

If you like GitHub issues but want to see them in a Kanban-style board, then ZenHub is the solution.

Pros

ZenHub lets you see the state of your GitHub issues at a glance: what's new, what's in progress, what's done.

Cons

GitHub's labels and milestones, combined with its powerful search, are sufficient to organize and track issues.

Very simple but wouldn't use it

2019-07-25

nice for simple projects if you don't want to use any other software since GH already comes as a repo but overall I wouldn't use it for serious projects

Pros

- integration with Github very very closely - simple

Cons

- slow - lack of features - bugs - no command+f search

Seamless planning layer for GitHub issues

2018-08-25

We're using ZenHub to organize and manage the code development inside of GitHub. We use Chrome / FireFox plugins to add the ZenHub layer directly into GitHub.

Pros

It provides a really slick and well-thought interface and usability experience.

Cons

I wish that sub-issues of an Epic could be ordered (when planning viewing them in the proper order is important). 2.

Easier than Jira, but limited

2018-04-24

An easy to set up management tools

Pros

Is great that you can set up a Board so quickly and integrate it with Github super easily, epics are probably one of the best features

Cons

I feel it can be much better, is not intuitive enough and there is still a learning curve, it would be better if it was more like basecamp in terms of design

2019-10-14

Organizing our sprint cycles by team and tracking issues by team.

Pros

Allows for easy filtering between issues.

Cons

There is nothing that I don't like about this add on to Github - it's very helpful with organization and visualization.

Zenhub makes it easier to manage current sprint work

2019-08-09

Pros

We keep all of our issues for upcoming and current work in GutHub, previously using GitHub Projects for our scrum board.

Cons

Somewhat frequently, the ZenHub tab will not load at all. Refreshing the page typically resolves the issue, but sometimes you have to troubleshoot further.

This product helped me and my team manage our software projects better

2018-02-15

Pros

I love that it leverages a product that every serious developer is familiar with (GitHub) and augments one of its core features (Issues) to help manage projects in a much more efficient way.

Nice connection to github

2019-09-17

We use ZenHub to represent our backlog and workflow. It has epics and individual issues on the board.

Pros

It has the same product management column set up that most PM tools have.

Cons

There aren't specific boards for sprints so you could set up columns to represent your sprint but it's not as easy as something like Jira.

Response from ZenHub


Hello,

Thank you for the kind words and feedback on ZenHub. You mentioned having a hard time setting up multiple board views on the same GitHub Repo and wanted to help.

We recently launched ZenHub Workspaces which gives different teams the ability to customize their board view when working from the same set of GitHub Repositories.

Here's how to set up your first Workspace:
https://help.zenhub.com/support/solutions/articles/43000497224-creating-your-first-workspace

If you run into any trouble please feel free to reach out to support or myself at any time (support@zenhub.com).

Thank you for being a ZenHub customer!

Zenhub finally made my developers care about the administration

2018-05-04

Pros

We used JIRA for change and defect management but developers found it tedious.

Cons

The UI has some inconsistencies that annoy me: * Text fields do not store their value unless you press update, but things like dropdowns update as soon as you release the mouse.

Supercharge GitHub!

2018-11-04

Pros

I’ve been using it with a small team of web developers and it really changed for the better the way we plan our sprints and how well we communicate progress to other stakeholders.

Cons

The learning curve might seem a bit steep, you need to become familiar with how GitHub features like issues and labels map to concepts like milestones and epics, but once you get the gist of it you are going to love this software.

Better than the regular GitHub Ticketing Feature

2018-04-04

Pros

-Increases productivity when working with the ticketing features within GitHub -Organizes all tickets in modern software development views -Good reporting tools -Integrates well with GitHub

Cons

-When compared to other issues/bugs products, there are not as many features -Seems like enhancements releases are slow -Not sure if feedbacks are implemented because I see a lot of enhancement requests that I agree with but it may be closed or delayed

Very happy with using Zenhub for project management.

2017-07-12

Pros

I like that Zenhub is built right on top of Github and I don't have to go to some other site for all the info. The boards view is a great way to see all my issues or all issues in some epic, etc.

Cons

With Zenhub you don't get as many analytics or reporting features as you could with something like Jira.

Zenhub is the best

2017-04-13

We have been using Zenhub for quite some time now. I really like how I can see all my issues in one place, and can organize them into different columns to get that work flow going.
