Supercharge GitHub!

Pros: I love how this software takes an existing feature (i.e. GitHub issue) and literally supercharges it, giving it new scope and meaning. It lets you organize work in a fast, reliable and effective way with teams of any sizes. I've been using it with a small team of web developers and it really changed for the better the way we plan our sprints and how well we communicate progress to other stakeholders.

Cons: The learning curve might seem a bit steep, you need to become familiar with how GitHub features like issues and labels map to concepts like milestones and epics, but once you get the gist of it you are going to love this software.

Pros: 1. It works seamlessly on of the original GitHub site (via the Chrome / FireFox plugin).

2. It provides the detailed guide not only on how to use the tools but on how to manage agile projects in general.

3. It provides a really slick and well-thought interface and usability experience.

Cons: There are some details that I wish would be improved:

1. I wish that sub-issues of an Epic could be ordered (when planning viewing them in the proper order is important).

2. I miss the ability to add automated actions, like:

2.1. Move issue to a certain pipeline when a code review is requested

2.2. Move issue to a certain pipeline when a code review is approved

2.3. Switch issue to a certain assignee when moved to a pipeline

4. ZenHub provides the "Done" pipeline, but the issues there are not actually counted as "done" in the reports.

3. Now ZenHub allows viewing issues as a pop-up in the pipelines. I wish the same experience would be available from the Epic planning board.

Overall: We're using ZenHub to organize and manage the code development inside of GitHub. We use Chrome / FireFox plugins to add the ZenHub layer directly into GitHub.

Pros: The code of my team lives in github so therefore, so do my developers. We used JIRA for change and defect management but developers found it tedious. Not so with github.

Cons: The UI has some inconsistencies that annoy me:

* Text fields do not store their value unless you press update, but things like dropdowns update as soon as you release the mouse. It makes me uncertain: did this particular change take or not.

* The close button puts the ticket in the closed state (in addition to closing the window) but does not pop up a message that it basically says we're done, nor asks to specify anything. Especially in the beginning, this made it far too easy to remove tickets from the board by mistake.

Pros: Zenhub is integrated with Github and thus enable me access this program with my Github login. It also provides me with an intuitive layout to monitor the progress of projects I manage.

I have also skipped using Jira and depended fully on Zenhub to delegate tasks to my team members at work ,and for disaster recovery management.

Cons: Zenhub's user interface is very much clumsy and takes time to get used to. It also renders my Github page unusable ,while it is active.

Pros: ZenHub's kanban view is great for me to understand my project management easily with its ability to filter vastly!

Cons: When zenhub goes down, there's a vague indication that it is not derivative of the end user's side.

Pros: ZenHub lets you see the state of your GitHub issues at a glance: what's new, what's in progress, what's done. It can pull issues from multiple GitHub repos into a single board, giving a great overview for managers. It has the clean look-and-feel of GitHub.

Cons: For most teams, ZenHub is overkill. GitHub's labels and milestones, combined with its powerful search, are sufficient to organize and track issues.

Overall: If you like GitHub issues but want to see them in a Kanban-style board, then ZenHub is the solution.

Pros: -Increases productivity when working with the ticketing features within GitHub -Organizes all tickets in modern software development views -Good reporting tools -Integrates well with GitHub

Cons: -When compared to other issues/bugs products, there are not as many features -Seems like enhancements releases are slow -Not sure if feedbacks are implemented because I see a lot of enhancement requests that I agree with but it may be closed or delayed

Zenhub is a lightweight project management tool embedded to your github repo.

Pros: It is a great complement for github. It basically includes most of the functions for agile project management and users only have to install the addon. Great documentation too.

Cons: The main problem I encounter with this tool is that I wish there was a way to create a board without a repo. This might not be a fault whereas an special feature I missed sometimes

Very happy with using Zenhub for project management.

Pros: I like that Zenhub is built right on top of Github and I don't have to go to some other site for all the info. The boards view is a great way to see all my issues or all issues in some epic, etc.

Cons: With Zenhub you don't get as many analytics or reporting features as you could with something like Jira.

Pros: It's so simple to use that I believe anyone with an experience with any todo list app can easily make use of this tool. It's integration with github makes development so easy.

Cons: I always have to refresh my my page severally before I can see update in different column of my workflow which sometimes can be time wasting and frustrating.

Pros: Is great that you can set up a Board so quickly and integrate it with Github super easily, epics are probably one of the best features

Cons: I feel it can be much better, is not intuitive enough and there is still a learning curve, it would be better if it was more like basecamp in terms of design

Overall: An easy to set up management tools

Pros: The kanban tasks are linked to the Github project directly with all the issues and detail, just one single click can see all the details and configure for sprints and milestones.

Cons: The flow of the Kanban is not able to customized and sometimes it's not easy to use for the projects not so much related to the development. And the layout is less beautiful compared to other Kanban tool.

Pros: Seamless intergration

Cons: Adds a lot of noise to GitHub

Overall: My organization used ZenHub. A lot of people in my organization really appreciated the features it brought to the table, but I didn't find those features very valuable. The killer feature seemed to be kanban for most of my colleagues, but I'm not a huge fan of kanban. We could live without it, I think.
