Pros: - It's easy to use.

- Overall user experience is much more pleasant compared to Trello or Jira, that we also have to use sometimes.

- The main view with boards and cards is informative thanks to custom card types, task type badges and tags.

- Boards are highly customizable.

- There are various card linking features.

- Customer support is really responsive. They try to make a product better. Feature requests are NOT silently ignored as it happens sometimes with other software products.

Cons: There's nothing, that I would say I dislike, but more of wish.

- They already added GitHub integration, but I'd like to see more integration possibilities, so that it can be integrated with CI/CD pipelines and Test Management tools as is the case for Jira.

- In general I would say, that it's more Scrum Master, Product Owner oriented, that Developer-oriented. I'd like to see more neat features for Developers in the future, like integrations and REST APIs.

- Improve support for touch screens.

Overall: Fast and easy organization of Agile software development process.

Pros: I like lanes, limits, blocking option.

I really fond of creating checklists that could be automatically added when you move a card and templates for card description.

Cons: Stats could be more intuitive.

It would be useful to see some data connected with users - eg distribution of card leadtime for selected "responsible" user

Pros: Simple, easy-to-start interface. Great collaboration options. Kanban boards and charts provide possibilities to make successful decisions

We used Kaiten for plan marketing activities for our clients and it was very useful.

Cons: To "grey", boring interface. It become much prettier when they add background images. Some charts are not very simple understand.

Pros: Ability to track each stage of the project in a single screen board view.

Track the project stages

Cons: I did not find so far. Maybe the design is not very fresh for those who's matter.

Overall: Kaiten amazed me how simple I could on board all my team from Jira to Kaiten.

We were looking for more Agile-friendly software which allows us to use Kanban in most friendly and effective manner and Kaiten solved all of our needs. I really happy with Kaiten, the support is fast, so we're felling now to be in a right place.
