Reviews from Real Users
Jira Align stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its program-level planning options and its reporting capabilities.
A project manager at a consultancy notes, “I like how things can be sorted out, and it shows the different objectives one can do. You could also create a team view that would allow your team to see work outcomes. Jira Align also helps with the reporting, because we can export data to Excel or another format.”
