Pros: We can break up our task into larger epics and stories. Which does help our team get organized. Which is vital when working with a couple developers and we need to know at a glance where a task's current state is.

Cons: It's a desktop software. Originally this was a web application that can be accessed from the browser. And now we need to run it as a desktop software which is not idea.

Also there are times where codegiant does get out of sync from not updating in the morning. Would like it to be more "live".

Pros: Exactly what we need, nothing less, nothing more. Easy to get started with. THIS sentence needs to be here to make 100 characters :)

Cons: The UI organizing tasks in the columns, dragging a task into an epic etc is really not working good, easy things as partial pattern match when searching for parent when creating task needed.

Pros: I particularly love the UI/UX of the tool and the fact that it has multiple super useful tools related to software development on a single platform. The documentation has been a real saviour with some rich features. Customer support is great.

Cons: Overall the software really stands beyond my expectations with support for native desktop apps. But, it would be awesome to have mobile apps (which they said is in the pipeline)

Overall: Managing team tasks and software development cycle has been very easy with Codegiant.

Pros: Desktop app is slick and the hosting services offered with Git are best in class. Pricing is super competitive for what they offer!

Cons: Codegiant's approach to PMing is slightly different than what I'm used to, and the learning curve is a little longer than I anticipated. They have good tutorials, but they're definitely still fleshing out details - so some help documentation is blank/deficient.

Pros: Kanban and scrum visual. Easy tracking. Easy team communication and management. Haven't tried the repo integration but seems nice as well. Easy to manage tasks.

Cons: Could have some other scrum oriented stuff, like points and time tracking, checklist functionality like Trello and should make filtering a looot easier (worst point imo).

Pros: Combines multiple engineering workflow products into one and has very competitive pricing (cheaper than cobbling together the same app from standalone services). You can do CI, code hosting, project management and documentation in a single application.

Cons: Pricing for documents doesn't quite make sense currently. Also this is a relatively new product with a lot of ongoing development if that's a concern for your company.

Overall: It allows me to streamline the developer workflow and use a suite of apps that are tightly integrated.

Pros: The ease of use is incredible when you come from atlassian. Everything seems straightforward and intuitive. The fact that you have everything in one place is a big plus. And the free plan is really interesting!

Cons: I find it weird that you are required to download an app. There should be a web app that holds all the part of codegiant.

Overall: Ease of use, big free plan, great support.

Pros: Everything is in one place, including CI/CD pipelines! The fact that I can iterate quickly and have my stories and tickets together with my code, is incredible.

Cons: Documents are extremely pricey for what they are way too expensive for simple docs. Also, customer support can be quicker and more detailed.
