"Great for tracking my development team's productivity."
"Kanban boards are most valuable"
"The most valuable features of Jira are the dashboards and user interface. The processes within Jira to monitor, maintain and release are beneficial. It is a continuous development solution."
"We can create multiple boards for the same product backlogs."
"It's flexible and it can provide a lot of different options, such as dashboards, that you can create and manage."
"It provides very good visibility and traceability. You can clearly see each and every part of a process. It is also user-friendly and robust. It is working well, and there are a lot of add-ons or plug-ins out there that you can use."
"I was able to do real-time reports myself without having to wait for data import."
"I like the test cases in Jira. The orange dash items view was great, and I like the features and layout of the data. It's quite different, and people are now getting their items so quickly."
"It's user friendly. We haven't had any issues so far. It's flexible. If we need something, we can always contact the owner in our headquarters to make a configuration."
"The most valuable feature is integration, particularly if you have a .NET application."
"The most valuable feature of TFS is integration."
"Team Foundation Server (TFS) is easy to use, and we have a complete trail and traceability. We also like the access control part."
"User alerts are very helpful for knowing when work is required."
"For what I need TFS for, I have never run into any limitation."
"The solution is very much stable."
"The most valuable feature from my point of view is project management, which includes user stories as well as task management."
"If Jira would be interested in offering a SharePoint version, it would be beneficial."
"Once a story is closed, all the records, versions, and documentation associated with it are gone. We lose the traceability of what was done."
"The next-generation software projects lack a lot, and I found quite a few bugs. There are some really basic things that you still cannot do. For instance, to put a mandatory due date for a task that you create in one of these projects is still not available. That's a bit of a block because people, especially those who are not technical, are not going to add anything if it's not mandatory. It's going to be difficult to teach them that they should do it anyway."
"Could be more stable with more integrations."
"The features are not intuitive. It would be good if there were templates."
"It should have Behavior Driven Development (BDD). There should be an option to add macros to help with that. A lot of people are using it now, and it would be nice if there was a way in there to be able to generate the BDD of commands whenever you're creating a story."
"Lacks field-level permission in the cloud version."
"Slow when integrating with other components."
"They have room for improvement in merging the source code changes for multiple developers across files. It is very good at highlighting the changes that the source code automatically does not know how to handle, but it's not very good at reporting the ones that it did automatically. There are times when we have source code that gets merged, and we lose the changes that we expected to happen. It can get a little confusing at times. They can just do a little bit better on the merging of changes for multiple developers."
"Currently, we are looking for a solution with which we can incorporate third-party development sites or third-party project teams into the system. Because it is on-premise, it is a bit problematic because we need to have a VPN or something else in the system. A cloud-based solution would be better for us, and that's what we are looking for. Our biggest problem is the external connection, which, of course, is limited by our own IT. It would be good to have some kind of publishing service for this external connection. It might be there, and it might be that our IT is making it impossible for us. Its template editor could be easier to use. Currently, customizing the project templates according to your needs requires some work."
"The dashboard and the customization of dashboards is an area they have to work on."
"The project management side should be addressed and the project and release planning should be somewhat extended."
"The reporting functionality is something that they should work on."
"The execution of test cases could stand improvement."
"There's not automatic access to test case management and execution."
"I'm looking for specific options that aren't currently available, such as active status, new status, or what's currently in progress."
