Zoho Sprints overview

What is Zoho Sprints?

Zoho Sprints is a cloud-based collaborative project planning and tracking solution for agile teams, which offers drag-and-drop planning tools, Scrum boards, timers and timesheets, meeting scheduling, dashboards, reports, and a team activity feed. The software is designed to be used by teams of all sizes managing multiple projects, and offers native apps for iOS and Android.

Sprints includes a drag-and-drop planning center, which allows users to create sprints and backlog items, with user assignments, estimation points, and prioritization. The Scrum board visualizes all work for each sprint, giving all users insight into task progress. Work statuses can be customized, and users can drag-and-drop work items, stories, and bugs into different completion stages. Work items can also be sorted into swimlanes based on priority, story, or estimation points, and sprint activity graphs allow users to track the progress of any ongoing sprint. The dashboard gives users an overview of key project metrics, with a weekly digest of work items and overall completion. A range of reports are generated automatically by Zoho Sprints, including velocity charts, burnup and burndown charts, and cumulative flow diagrams, allowing users to track progress, identify bottlenecks, and adjust goals.

Users can track billable and non-billable hours in the Sprints timesheet, with a global timer which can be started from anywhere within the system. Time for each work item and team member can be logged, and timesheets can be approved with a single click by scrum masters and product owners. Sprints also allows users to schedule meetings, including sprint reviews, retrospectives, and daily stand-ups. Users can set meeting agendas, invite participants, and apply time limits to meetings. Reminders are automatically generated and sent to participants’ activity feeds and emails.

The Best Agile Project Management Solution ever built!

Review Source: Capterra

We have been using Zoho Projects and to our development model, this was a better choice. We switched to Sprints and We love it more than ever. This product has increased the entire team's productivity by a very large extent.

Pros
Amazingly user-friendly and fast. Very fast updates and new features. Ideal for startups who work from simplest software applications to most complex one's. Amazing customization options, beautifly laid out with neat UI. Quick support and perfect resolution to queries.

Cons
Nothing Specific but we are looking forward to get some friendly features like Cumulative timesheets across the project for a user. Its very annoying to calculate every user's individual project's timesheet to know a month's performance.

Zoho Sprints is Manageable and Customizable

Used daily for free trial

Review Source: Capterra

We decided to use Scrum methodology. Zoho Sprints was able to handle backlog and bug log the way we have been using it. It was available and it worked without a huge learning curve for a short deadline.

Pros
I like the customization of features, especially creating card templates and statuses. Custom templates comes in handy when we are importing from another platform like Trello and we want to use the same format. I also like the integration between other platforms including Zoho Projects for Gantt charts. I like that we can add a custom 'Status Type'. I used this feature to add a 'Review' status for code review. I also like the integration with Zoho Projects and Trello. I also liked how I can simply reorder users stories or work items, from sprints or backlog, into different Epics.

Cons
I found Epics to be a little confusing. I am curious as to why this is a premium feature. It appears there are many other features I would consider premium. Some of the dashboard items were hard to setup to be useful.

Transitioning off of Google Sheets

It has been much easier to see an overview of our tasks and defects, then it was on Google Sheets.

Pros
The ability to easily turn feed messages into a work item is amazing! Also the integration with Zoho Desk and many other apps is very valuable.

Cons
I loved the Zoho Learning beta version, and would have liked to use it, however it does not in any way integrate with Zoho Sprints. I feel that perhaps it should so development or marketing knowledge transfers can be pulled from within Sprints.

Worst project management software I've ever used

Used daily for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2020-02-12
Review Source: Capterra

Absolutely horrible. Doesn't integrate well with Zoho Desk, Zoho CRM, or any of the Zoho projects. Horrendous UI. Buggy and glitchy. Run - don't walk - away from this part of Zoho. There are plenty of solid project management/agile management tools out there that offer great value - this would be dead last in ratings.

Pros
Zoho One generally has good breadth and value for money. Zoho Sprints should be removed from the Zoho platform. I suppose if you were running a team of yourself, and hated your time but love clicking your mouse and being frustrated, this might be a good choice.

Cons
Absolutely unusable. The integrations into the rest of Zoho One's products is barely there. The interface is not intuitive. Buttons are completely in the wrong place. If you asked a UX designer to create a piece of software with the maximum amount of clicks and that forces a user to really slow down and search for how to use the software, they would struggle to design Zoho Sprints.

Organization problems mostly. Benefits of simplicity, what I like the most. I solved the problem to have to think about project management software at a very good price.

Pros
I am like falling in love with this. I think it is amazing that Zoho brings this amazing platform to organize projects. For me, it was a great to find out about it, and then when I start using and understanding, just so easy to apply agile methodology to my work. The best is the simplicity of it. Easy to customize your projects. I love the apps for mobile, get things faster.

Cons
So far nothing. maybe there should be more ways to create templates, it has it, but it is kind of hidden. I do not like that the platform does not have a desktop app for Mac or PC, that would be awesome.

Benefits

The Scrum board gives users a snapshot of project progress, with board updates appearing automatically on the team feed, the ability to set custom statuses, and default and detailed board views.

With the timesheet and global timer, users can log billable and non-billable hours, track the length of time required to complete work items, approve time logs with a single click, and more.

The dashboard gives users an overview of key metrics, including completion status, users with the most open or closed work items, sprint activity charts, and backlog metrics.

Agile reports are generated automatically, including velocity charts, burnup and burndown charts, and cumulative flow diagrams, which allow users to estimate and predict progress, identify bottlenecks, and track the scope of sprints.

Users can schedule meetings for sprint reviews, retrospectives, and daily stand-ups, with the ability to set meeting agendas, choose participants, and apply meeting time-limits, and Sprints automatically sends reminders to participants’ email and feed.
