Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The reporting functionality helps vendors and technical resources identify bugs and issues that need to be addressed. The simple dashboard-style home page makes training end-user testers simple and straightforward. The actual testing UI is VERY straightforward and very intuitive for the end-users that test the system since very often we pull from business and operational users to help test new systems.""The user-friendly features are the most valuable. For example, migration of requirements and migration of test cases and the creation of traceability. You have various reports that you need. The plug-ins that are available to connect with the other tools."

"The initial setup is fairly easy.""The most valuable feature from my point of view is project management, which includes user stories as well as task management.""The most valuable feature is the backlog.""The interface is easy to navigate.""Good branching and labelling features.""As far as queries are concerned, creating, grading, or customizing the queries as a primary requirement is very easy to do.""Basically, the capacity to construct various products is something I find handy.""Some of the valuable features are version control and the ability to create different collections in terms of segregating the authorization for teams who connect to small projects."

Cons
"Migrating is not very easy. It depends on the organization, how efficient and effective the decision-making process is. The plug-ins should be easier and more integrated rather than the user trying to integrate the tools which are more popular, like Jira et al.""The UI for managing test cases, test sets, test runs could be a little more integrated, currently, these feel disjointed at times and confusing. Also, the test steps page needs to display the test steps closer to the top of the UI so as to not have to scroll down to find."

"The reporting functionality is something that they should work on.""The execution of test cases could stand improvement.""There are many things that I cannot do, and I have a lot of bugs.""There should be management of the project built-in.""The program and portfolio planning facility can be improved.""The project management side should be addressed and the project and release planning should be somewhat extended.""The usability of TFS is not that great.""I would like to see the reporting features expanded so that I can see details on the users connected to all of the projects."
