Pros
"The feature that I have found most valuable is the dashboard.""From a testing perspective, the management is awesome. I am able to do testing and then add the reporting and the evidence. It is fair in terms of the price that you're paying. You get what you're paying for."

"I was satisfied with the support given by customer service.""It is a very common and strong product. A lot of support is available for this product.""It is very easy to use. You can handle a lot of things together at once in one package, which is a good point for us.""Easy to use and easily scalable.""The most valuable features are tools like IntelliSense and ReSharper.""The ability to quickly make your own components has been valuable.""Performance-wise, it is a great tool.""The stability has always been very good."

Cons
"I do see room for lots of improvement in it. In terms of usability, duplication with test cases and constant creation of projects isn't easy. There is also too much API integration into automation tools, which is not there in ALM with UFT. Instead of setting it up as a project and using it, we set it up as a system for usability. It also lacks in the traceability aspect. For traceability, you need to use the JIRA plugin and drag traceability on JIRA, but the functionality is still quite limited. The biggest gap is mainframe testing. It would be good if I could start with mainframe testing. Manual granting of access is another issue. There is no API that I could use with another system where it is automated. There is an API for loading somebody to a project but not for adding to the application.""With TestRail, the APIs are there, but they may not be able to easily integrate with the Jenkins."

"It is not good in terms of performance. When you open Visual Studio, you have to wait for a while to process your code. It uses a lot of resources and has a lot of features. If we could disable some of the features, it would be lighter and faster to use. Nowadays, for some of the projects, we use VS Code for JavaScript or Python. VS Code is very light and easy to use, whereas, in Visual Studio, we have to wait because it takes time to compile or run a project. It has a lot of competitors in terms of performance, such as Intelligent ID. Intelligent ID is very easy to use. It has many features, and it is lighter to use than Visual Studio. In terms of error handling, sometimes, it shows an error before you finish your code, which can be improved. It would be good if it has a version for Linux. I use VS Code on Linux, but I am not sure if Visual Studio has a version for Linux.""It needs more integration with other tools for monitoring. Microsoft also needs to make it more modern to make it work with microservices and the cloud. It is a bit outdated currently.""The solution is quite expensive.""There are too many features with the product and I would like there to be less.""In Visual Studio we still don't have anything which can pinpoint memory leaks on a certain code line.""The integration with Git needs improving because it is a bit disjointed and unpredictable.""The pricing of this solution should be lowered.""One of the problems with this solution is you need to be highly technically skilled to operate it, it is not for everyone."

    Top Answer: 
    The feature that I have found most valuable is the dashboard.
    Top Answer: 
    It depends on the number of users. I think our price is something like $300 to $400 a year.
    Top Answer: 
    With TestRail, the APIs are there, but they may not be able to easily integrate with the Jenkins. I think it's not directly integrated with automation kit solutions. Maybe manual test cases have APIs… more »

    Top Answer: 
    In Visual Studio we still don't have anything which can pinpoint memory leaks on a certain code line. It gives me memory analysis, however, it's not taking me to the code lines. That's what I was… more »
