" Powerful product management tool"

What do you like best?

Aha! This is a very full-featured road tool with a lot of multifunctional capabilities. Just to realize, what else needs to be done, and I can prioritize. In addition, I can see what my team members need to do, which simplifies the transition and support. In general, it is productive.

What do you dislike?

This service does not need absolute functionality, but the numerous functions of Aha! must be easily accessible in mobile devices, including messages, ideas and functions. In some areas, I would like the document to be done in a different way, but this is insignificant.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can not doubt the productivity of this platform. So you will have an excellent strategy in the work. And also the opportunity to use a huge space for storing information.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We apply Aha! with the goal of researching the product roadmap, presenting ideas, tracking ideas and creating custom events. In this regard, we have a much greater exponent, in connection with which the wishes will be prioritized in comparison with others.

"we and Aha!"

What do you like best?

This program is a miracle. It allowed us to organize everything in our system of product roadmaps, allows teams to quickly and visually track various projects on different platforms in the company. I want to note very competent support, which responded almost instantly after our appeals. There was a nuance of use with JIRA, but technical support was very quick and intelligibly told how to integrate correctly.

What do you dislike?

Complex functionality at first glance, but quickly figured out. It took a long time to configure the application. The time spent paid off very quickly, which can not but rejoice.

Recommendations to others considering the product

One of the best programs for marketing management. The program fully pays for the funds invested in it. Having seen it our partners also became interested in it and plan to take control. Very good product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It became much easier to manage all the requests of our customers. Optimization of the logistics of products has increased the productivity of our company. Huge saving of time, which helped to use more time for other tasks.

"Great for Product Management in Distributed Teams!"

What do you like best?

The integration throughout the product. Ideas to Features to Reports. Its really easy to use. The Ideas portal is great for managing requests and giving visibility of those requests. The Gantt chart is great for roadmap planning and its easy to edit. The report Notebooks are super helpful, especially the live URL. Management can easily bookmark and view the current status. I like being able to use the "Parking Lot/Backlog" to manage features that we know we want to develop but are unsure of what release they should go into at the time.

What do you dislike?

There's no integration with YouTrack, only JIRA. We would have to use an API in order to send the tasks to YouTrack.

An interactive report would be helpful as the static images can cause issues when trying to share with management.

The "View" options can be confusing as it takes you directly to the Reports tab, it's not a change in the view of that current you're on.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's great for remote teams as it allows easy sharing of information. Works best if you use JIRA for task management.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Transparency of the product roadmap and what's being worked on when. Its helped reduce manual communication work with notifications. We've also used it to group our features into releases so we have a clearer plan of what the team is working towards. Creating the product strategy also helped us focus on the product plan.

"Aha a must to have tool for Product Managers."

What do you like best?

Aha! is one of the best tools for Product Manager to manage end to end the requirements aligned with product strategy and business goals. It also provides seamless integration with various project management & collaboration tools like Salesforce, Jira, Slack & others.

What do you dislike?

Nothing specific which I can mention but I would suggest for an enhancement to have some option track activity on milestone/release with dependency.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend using Aha! for Product Management as they have all the required feature and also filling the gaps as the industry & technology is advancing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Aha! for our product requirements and Product Roadmap with Release tracking. And also as a collaboration tool for our Sales Leader/Customer/Product Management to gather requirements & Feature Ideas and build product roadmap.

"One of the most fully featured roadmapping tools on the market"

What do you like best?

Aha! is a very fully featured roadmapping tool with tons of functionality. We liked the Salesforce integration the most, which allows our salespeople to enter Aha! feature requests via Salesforce opportunities. This enabled us to rank feature requests by associated revenue so we could track business relevance.

Another outstanding aspect of Aha! is its customer support. All of its customer success folks are former product managers and they provide excellent support. They are quick to respond and they are very informed.

What do you dislike?

We had two main issues with our Aha! implementation:

1) We sorted our feature requests on a milestone granularity. Our prioritization process required us to stack rank milestones so we could move them around as needed. Aha! has no ability to track the stack rank so we wound up doing it in Excel, which defeats the purpose of using Aha! to track prioritization in the first place.

2. Therefore, our primary use of using Aha! was tracking feature requests via Salesforce. The main drawback here was that while Aha! enabled us to sort feature requests by associated revenue, we needed more business context. In other words, we wanted to know whether a customer requesting a feature considered it a "must-have" or a "nice-to-have". Aha! therefore needed more fields for the mapping between a customer and a feature request.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're planning to integrate with Jira, make sure you figure out the mapping between Jira objects and Aha! objects before moving forward. Had we known before purchase that Jira integration wouldn't have been possible, this may have affected our decision.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest problem we are solving is to track feature requests and rank them by associated revenue. We therefore have much greater visibility into which requests should be prioritized over others.

"Brought our roadmaps into the 21st century! "

What do you like best?

Aha! brought our organization's product management function into the 21st century. We have used it for 12 months and I barely remember the days of PowerPoints and spreadsheets and legal pad scribbles. Now we are on a SaaS solution that integrates with the company's SSO. I love the accessibility and usability of Aha!

The support team is top-notch, highly responsive to my questions. Aha's crowd sourced "big ideas" site shows their own product in action, and enhancements are regularly delivered to the solution.

What do you dislike?

Reports is highly customizable and can really Tell The Story of your releases, but it requires a working knowledge of pivot table formatting and has not been highly adopted across the team. Also, the report templates provided are heavily focused on tying back to strategy. For products where work is happening but strategy is not fully defined, those templates are not very worthwhile.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Organizational transparency to product intake and product roadmaps, a common language for feature development status, and a one-stop-shop for keeping track of the million details that go into release planning.

"Powerful Product Management Tool"

What do you like best?

Aha does a lot. I think its integration with Jira is probably one of the strongest things and makes product management a lot easier by not having to worry about duplicate entry of user stories or initiatives.

What do you dislike?

Aha has a bit of a learning curve. I had downloaded the free trial but didn't really understand what all it could do until I used it at a company who had already implemented it. It was definitely overwhelming at first!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it time. It certainly takes a bit to get everything set up with integrations and workflows so that you can use it exactly how you want to. It's kind of like Jira in that it can do so much that the only downside to that is the time investment required to configure it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Aha for product roadmapping, idea submission, idea tracking, and user story creation. It really helps us from start to finish when deciding what the product and engineering team is going to build.

"Organize and Prioritize Upcoming Releases"

What do you like best?

I like the visual layout, being able to see what my upcoming releases look like and prioritize things by dragging them around.

What do you dislike?

There are a lot of little usability issues, for example, you cannot multi-select and perform bulk actions on features within a release. Doesn't seem like a big deal, but when you have to manually alter each feature in a release with a ton of featrue cards it's a drag. There are many other small nuisances like that I come across daily, but that's the one that's on the top of my mind.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's the best Product Management software out there, but the space still hasn't found it's Salesforce. Aha could be to PM what salesforce is to CRM, but it's a long way off, currently.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Organizing, prioritizing, and keeping track of releases in progress and then reporting on finished releases.

"Just Barely Scratched the Surface"

What do you like best?

The Aha! task requirements are a godsend, because they mimic the way I make lists: they allow for cross-offs/check completed. The tagging feature is great, as well.

What do you dislike?

I feel like I've barely scratched surface at what Aha! can do and the way Aha! labels its tabs are a bit confusing. I do wish that was more intuitive; I'm having to bookmark specific pages because I can't remember how to get from place to place. I also don't like that there are different tiers of access, so that I have to sign in and out to be able to assign team members tasks, etc. There have been a few miscommunications and tasks or follow-ups that have fallen through, simply because it's difficult to keep track of tasks that aren't directly tagged to you.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it. It won't hurt. It's useful and although a bit clunky, it's not completely difficult to grasp. Give yourself between 2 to 4 weeks to get used to the product and get some training to get the most out of Aha! There are places you can make and collect notes, there are different filters to explore, etc.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Task management and project management. The benefits are that everyone in the company - not just on my team, but everyone in the company - can track the progress of a task. The tagging feature, which I mentioned above, is neat, even though it only allows me to tag the people who are part of the content channel, as opposed to the separate development channel. The search function is comprehensive, though, so that's helpful.

"Great tool, lots of integrations with other products, very intuitive and very fast personal support"

What do you like best?

I like how this tool is a great PM tool for visualizing the roadmap, understanding all the pieces that go into achieving the roadmap goals, how ideas/features/releases/initiatives/goals are all tied together. The Aha! Score is extremely valuable and helps teams plan upcoming releases easily. No more meetings with opinions driving the results!

What do you dislike?

There's not a native mobile experience yet. It doesn't need full functionality but many features of Aha! should be available on mobile including reports, ideas, features and releases.

I also don't like that To Dos are not a part of a template. This would reduce a PM's workload and help companies use Aha! to standardize their processes immensely.

The Aha! score needs to be tied into the 2x2 matrix for Initiatives and Goals along with the user being able to customize how the scores are reflected in the matrix.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This tool is only as good as the user using it and they training to understand the Aha! methodology. It's a strong one that I support and see how it can work for many different organizations. It's very important to get this tool for non Product stakeholders to use as it's meant to create a cohesive cross functional operation between Product and everyone else.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm working with my client to integrate Aha! with JIRA, standardize their Product departments processes while using Aha! to remove roadmapping Excel files and reduce/end some cross functional meetings. It appears this will work easily as the PM's have easily bought into Aha! and leadership see the value clear as day.

"Aha! adds transparency to Product Management decisions"

What do you like best?

Aha is great for showing the decisions made in the Product Management cycle in a way that is easy to understand for those (internal and external) that are not directly involved in Product Management. It also provides tools that allow other stakeholders in the Product Management process (that are not Product Managers) to be involved in the process with very little additional training while adding additional layers of discipline around the Product Management process.

What do you dislike?

Depending on the complexity of your product and your client base it can take some significant effort to get everything set up.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Making the Product Management process more transparent and facilitating greater participation from clients and other stakeholders in the process while adding discipline around the submissions.

"Good but not great. "

What do you like best?

It’s nice to have a tool focused on PMs. The majority of my career I’ve managed requirements in an excel sheet. I like how easy and flexible it is to create and manage requirements as welll as collect ideas from customers.

What do you dislike?

It’s very difficult (at least with how we have it implemented) to manage epics across multiple quarters. We need to place the epic in the delivery column for the quarter it will GA but then you lose the view of the ongoing work in the current quarter. Would be nice to let these features span across.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Typical product management challenges. Managing requirements and feature requests. It’s helped us to have a central location for planning and prioritizing.

"Great tool for product marketers and managers alike "

What do you like best?

Aha! is great in that it provides Gantt charts and Kanban boards for all of our product releases. With the ability to filter by project team, release, or feature/function, there multiple ways to stay on top of to-dos.

What do you dislike?

There's really not much to dislike with Aha! It's intuitive and straightforward, and let's you filter by the views/dashboards that work best for you. In some areas, I'd like to see reporting done differently, but that's minor.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely worth evaluating if you're a product marketer or product manager.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently using Aha! to manage product releases on a quarterly basis. The benefits are better project management and alignment across teams. Everyone is able to see what's being worked on, and the email reminders help keep everyone on-task.

"good system for managing a lot of people"

What do you like best?

It is easy to see what still needs to be done and I can prioritize. I can also see what my team members still need to do which makes it easier to jump in and help out.

What do you dislike?

There are a lot of features because I think originally it was made for developers. We want to use it because it is a good tool, but maybe offer an option that is more simplified or be able to hide the tabs you don't want to see.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Understand that it was originally made for developers and so is a little difficult to get to use if you are not tech-savvy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Benefits are that I can easily prioritize my work and see exactly what I still need to do.

"Scratching the Surface"

What do you like best?

Aha has the power and flexibility we need to run a sophisticated product management practice and package up visibility to that practice for internal and external stakeholders.

What do you dislike?

Because it's so powerful and flexible there's a lot to learn and not every screen is simple or easy to use. There's certainly a learning curve to make the most of Aha!.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We need to manage a roadmap of product enhancements and initiatives, track each initiative through its lifecycle and provide visibility to internal and external stakeholders regarding the progress of each one. So far we've made some progress recording our product initiatives in the system, but we've not yet transitioned to managing our daily work there yet. Once we do, we'll work to create notebooks from those screens and begin using it as a communication mechanism.

"Aha! generally usable, but lacks a streamlined interface"

What do you like best?

Aha! is extremely functional. It works. It gets the job done. And it is really useful for Product Management teams to help streamline initiatives, features, and ideas. The 2x2 grid is helpful for aligning on tshirt sizes and prioritization needs. Overall, it's efficient.

What do you dislike?

Aha!'s interface can be tedious to navigate and is often disappointing, especially when developers and PM's are working in it- we're used to things working more seamlessly. While the interface itself is tired and nothing exciting, again, it's fully functional for a PM team's needs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great tool for navigating the muddy waters of product management. It allows you to share an idea portal with our entire company as well, offering transparency company-wide.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it to prioritize and categorize Product initiatives and features to later be deployed to engineering.

"A good tool for building your product roadmap"

What do you like best?

I like the roadmap view you can share with others - it's nice that you are able to select which product features to include in this view and which to leave out.

I also like the auto-push feature to JIRA, this comes in handy and engineering can choose to just look at the JIRA for the spec instead of two different places.

What do you dislike?

I find it confusing the way it's organized, with different sections and sub-sections. There is a steep learning curve but with frequent use it becomes easier to navigate.

I also don't like how you cannot link a product feature to multiple initiatives, I believe it currently just allows you to assign it to a single initiative.

I would love if Aha! included an integration with Balsamiq, as this is the tool we are currently using for creating wireframes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

- Steep learning curve, but great as a visual roadmap tool

- Very easy to move features between different releases (drag and drop)

- JIRA auto-push is a very helpful feature

- Does not have an integration with Balsamiq

- Cannot link features to multiple initiatives

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trying to improve the way we organize and plan our product roadmap. We were previously using Confluence for this, but it was a very manual process and there was no easy clean way to view the entire roadmap in one view. This is a lot easier with Aha! where you can see the roadmap, divided by each product and the features within each product.

"With CA Agile integration, Release and Feature Management truly single platform"

What do you like best?

I love the integration to CA Agile so every story i write ransitions seemlessly

What do you dislike?

I wish the parking lot interface was cleaner for how it showed the list of full items. You have to scroll down to find everything, with lots of wasted real estate.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use this to be the basis of the agile process with which we attempt to solve via the means of software development. It has centralized our product and release planning and sped our delivery of key concepts to development and user teams.

"Terrible Customer Support and Integration model"

What do you like best?

We like how the tool visualizes releases and features. When it worked it significantly improved cross-team communication and feature prioritization.

What do you dislike?

Aha's customer support is terrible I'm afraid. Every e-mail is with a different person, they are slow to respond, often do not have details shared previously with other people, and are unwilling to get on the phone long enough to actually solve a problem.

The integration between Aha! and JIRA is particularly terrible. It worked for us for a while but then we were encouraged to move to their newest version of the integration and it has since been non-functional for the past 3 months. No one at Aha! has been able to help resolve it and it appears that even if it worked, a key feature (displaying story points in Aha!) has been removed from the integration.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not integrate it with JIRA unless you absolutely have to and be prepared for customer support to be slow and uninterested in really helping you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When it worked, our product owner was able to lay out several releases of features for our business sponsors to see in a format friendly to non-technical people.

"Love Aha - has helped us bring the eng-buisness team gap"

What do you like best?

Fully features, high level management. We use this for company strat, all the way down to feature planning.

My favorite feature is the ideas portal, where users submit bugs or feature requests. It gives them great visibility into my work as a PM, and allows me a clear line of communication as to where we stand on a new feature

What do you dislike?

Not much - honestly it is a great product. There is a learning cure like Jira because they are both feature rich products, but overall I love Aha.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it you will probably like it

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Biz - Eng communication. High level planning. Sprint Planning.

Ties together your high level goals to your initiatives, which flows down into your sprints and then into your features. Love how everything is connected through the software.

"Software for the Savvy Product Marketer"

What do you like best?

I really like the way Aha simplifies and consolidates our strategic planning process for product management and product marketing. I can track and share information on dozens of competitors and have great visibility into our roadmap without getting buried in the details.

What do you dislike?

I'd like a little more flexibility to customize the competitor research section, but overall the app is great.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our Product team wanted to improve communication within our group and across the company. Aha allows us to get a consolidated view of product strategy across the company and dive deep into specific details when needed.

"Aha! is great for engineers/product managers/analysts and good/okay for other teams as well."

What do you like best?

As a customer service agent, Aha! has been vital in submitting customer insights and suggestions for product improvements to the proper channels. We also use Aha! for any internal or external dev requests, ranging from account issues to site problems. What's best about Aha! is its versatility and the fact we can use it for many different operations all on the same platform. Notifications on updates happen in real time and I can unsubscribe from any updates that are no longer relevant to me or my team.

What do you dislike?

I have not found Aha! to be the most user-friendly platform as a non-engineer. The layout does not always feel intuitive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you run your business primarily online and want a single platform for a variety of uses, Aha! is probably the way to go. I personally do not use it as in-depth as our engineering teams, but this is my opinion thus far.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are constantly working to improve customers satisfaction while maintaining customer acquisition, retention, cost savings and ARPU. Being able to prioritize ideas and plans based on these four areas is immensely helpful cross-teams.

"Aha is hands down the best Product Management tool out there"

What do you like best?

The comprehensiveness of its feature set. You can use Aha to document product strategy and business goals, feature and initiative roadmaps, capture and assess ideas, and produce reports and presentations. The integration with JIRA is superb. You can send your features to JIRA, they go through the development workflow, and when they are shipped they update in Aha.

Aha is clearly a product designed and built from a complete understanding of what product managers want to do and should be doing, and it helps propel a product manager towards the latter. It actually makes you better at your job.

What do you dislike?

The ability of the admin (me) to specify the views that reviewers and viewers have access to is good but could be better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the time to set it up properly and understand it. You will be well rewarded.

The holy grail of any product design is effortless onboarding, almost sleepwalking through core loops of the product, and reaching a useful and active state without any discernible effort. This is hard to achieve, and impossible with something as complex as Aha. So be alert, be mindful, dedicate 4 uninterrupted hours to learning and setting up Aha. It will be worth it, trust me.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Aha is all of our Product Management processes, tools and documentation in a box. It seems robust and comprehensive enough, without being inflexible, so we can use it to run our desired processes, rather than shoe-horning our processes into the tool. Maybe we are just lucky that our structure maps to Aha's structure, but I doubt it. This seems like a really well thought out piece of software.

"Only useful if you have highest permission level"

What do you like best?

Aha is customizable, but that is also its greatest weakness. If you have simple and regular workflows that can be easily broken down into structured deliverables, then this product might work for you.

What do you dislike?

We moved to this product from Trello, and it has been a difficult transition. Only one or two individuals in our company have the highest permission levels which are necessary to manage our team's unique workflows, which include projects with a series of steps that need to be transitioned to "Done" upon their completion. As such, I can only actually transition roughly 80% of steps within each project to "Done", then I need to ask an individual to transition the other steps for me (which is ridiculously annoying and time-consuming). Additionally, we now use the system to manage quite of bit of communication between the various teams in our company, but it is difficult to tag other users within the system when commenting, and some messaging requires logging into a separate portal. Altogether the system is trying to do way too much, and ends up being unable to do anything well. The team at Aha needs to seriously refocus its efforts on doing one thing well, like Trello does with its card-based project management system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I mean, if you like to make more work for yourself, then by all means go right ahead. If you want to reduce the amount of work you have to do on a daily basis, try a different product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I haven't really realized any benefits. What work used to take an hour by using a combination of google docs and Trello now takes a minimum of two hours in this system.

"Aha! is hands-down the most versatile roadmap and idea management platform I've used"

What do you like best?

Customization

Aha lets you customize everything in their application, from changing in-app terminology to adding a slew of custom fields. It's versatility has been the best thing about it. I'm literally able to create any view I need to create.

Views

Aha recognizes that a product manager's primary duty is communication. I love that I'm able to create an unlimited number of views that I can custom tailor to my audience. It has significantly reduced the number of questions I get. I can't understate this enough. Any tool that gives you time is worth your investment. Aha gives me time. It helps me do more with less.

Integration

Aha's JIRA integration is elegant and effortless. It syncs both ways, supports custom fields, everything I could want.

Notebooks

I love that I'm able to embed notebooks. That allows us to iframe our roadmaps and other info into our intranet. This is really huge for us.

What do you dislike?

Notebooks

Some of the reports you can generate are really cool, but there's this weird title page that appears on every one. You can't disable it, and that can be kind of annoying. The nav (backward/forward) is also really subtle (at the bottom of the screen). It still throws me off, and I'm used to it. The combination of a subtle nav and big white title page that might make people think the report failed to load.

Project Planning

The milestones and dates are great, but they end up being inaccurate because they don't seem to skip weekends. It throws everything off. I'd love to be able to sync this with Smartsheet, or even replace Smartsheet, but I'm not able to at this time.

Adding Columns

As I mentioned earlier, you can create any view you like. Aha used to have a really simple way of adding columns. They recently enhanced it to support more complex views, but the new column sorter is bulky and tedious. It's not the end of the world, but it has made modifying grids much more difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go to every page and look around. There's a lot you can do. If you don't use everything, that's okay. We don't use every feature, and we're still really happy with the product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At first, we purchased Aha as a means of organizing all of our feature requests we were getting. It exceeded our expectations in that category. As we became more and more comfortable with the product, we've used it for other things. We recently began working on a massive project with hundreds of moving parts (literally). I needed a way to track them individually, and generate views that I could easily share across all internal teams. I was so successful in doing this, that Aha has become the go-to tool for all pre-dev planning. We do all of our planning and estimating in Aha, and when work is ready to start we push it to Jira.

"Product Roadmap Marketing"

What do you like best?

It his been great for outlining how and where we should be focusing from a product perspective. The Competitive Section tools has been very helpful as we track several key competitors in the space

What do you dislike?

I would like to be able to customize the design of the reports within the notebooks

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use the trial and make sure it fits your needs. The solution does not work well for all departments within our company as we had originally hoped, however it is a good fit for marketing and upper management.

The strategy section has been very helpful in keeping the team aware of different competitors in the space along with any changes in focus to our go to market strategy.

"Aha! allows us to plan, track and communicate our corporate strategy through our product roadmap."

What do you like best?

Aha! allows us to easily track features and releases against our top-level corporate objectives. Additionally, we can easily communicate our plans for both internal and external audiences with both objective-based and timeline-based perspectives. The integration with Jira means there's less manual work for me to do to keep things updated and communicate the plan.

What do you dislike?

The per-seat cost is pretty high, so we don't have as many people using Aha! as I would like. The read-only role is nice, but most people end up just going to Jira instead.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you manage multiple product or product lines that are technical in nature (hosted software, etc) and you follow agile development and planning principles you should definitely consider Aha!.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Internal and external communication of our roadmap is very flexible. Many times I've been asked "We need to present our X month product roadmap for ABC to customer XYZ with details on features 1, 2 and 3." This could have taken days previously, but with the content already in Aha! and the flexible reporting options I can now do it in less than an hour.

I get to focus in Aha! planning releases, writing user stories and expanding on requirements without having to get into the weeds of scheduling and assignment. All of that stuff flows seamlessly to Jira for our agile development planning and then updates come right back to Aha!.

"Visual Project Collaboration to Reflect Planning and Scoping"

What do you like best?

I'm a big fan of the easy drag-and-drop functionality, enabling me to move cards around easily and seamlessly.

What do you dislike?

I wish I could get an overview of some of the advanced functionality and customization without needing an admin account.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Integrate an entire project or client's worth of work to maximize potential and see its capabilities. I would also suggest checking out their roadmap flow and reporting.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Aha! helps us plan for new projects, scope them out, and send to JIRA once we're ready to prioritize them in the next sprint.

"Haven't found something better"

What do you like best?

It is highly customizable so you can remove things that don't make sense, set up links and special fields.

What do you dislike?

Looks really ugly, unintuitive (reminds me of visual basic!). Unclear what are hit targets - I've clicked on what I swear are the same things and nothing happens sometimes and other times a screen slides out. I have ended up on screens I did not expect to end up on, even after making that mistake multiple times previously. I tried the Jira link on an existing issue and it kept overwriting my changes (switching out epics).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Worth a try when there are a lot of business owners that like to know what's happening.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're hoping this allows business owners from outside the product/dev teams to get a sense of all the things we're working on. I feel like this could be accomplished using other tools as well though. Our team is currently on a trial but will be going to paid.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the numerous categories can become confusing, but it may just be a reflection of the company-specific designations we have internally.

"Use aha to manage projects and project tasks"

What do you like best?

I like how it has a full project flow from idea suggestion, acceptance to completion with the ability have comments and file uploads.

What do you dislike?

Big projects broken down into smaller features is not as seamless as it could be. Having a project that is made up of smaller features with a roadmap available for each project would seem to make more sense. Use of aha was not as intuitive as I would have hoped. Adjusting points, logging time and reminders for unshipped projects and deadlines was not as smooth and automated as I would have hoped. We duplicate use of tags for people to do assignments so the feature board can be visually viewed by who it is assigned to.

"Product Management"

What do you like best?

I like the purpose of the tool, for managing projects for a product. I like the ability to look at other products within my company.

What do you dislike?

The user interface is not always intuitive. It sometimes takes me several minutes to add something new for the first time. It should be easier. I really wish I could link an Aha task with a FogBugz case that is logged in FogBugz. This is a MAJOR shortcoming.

"Frustrating beyond belief to navigate"

What do you like best?

There is nothing I like. Perhaps the ability to organize projects and have a roadmap for when tasks will be completed, but honestly a google doc would be better.

What do you dislike?

It is impossible to navigate and to communicate with other members of your team on Aha! I can't tag members of various teams in posts (perhaps I don't have sufficient privileges?). We have been using Aha! for about 3 months now and I still can't figure out where the information I need to access is.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't get it. You may need a couple different softwares but it is better than one big mess.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I haven't realized any benefits, only more issues. Aha! was supposed to be one place where all the various teams of our company could post problems that needed to be fixed, upcoming releases we would be having, and a general roadmap for the year. I can't easily see all this stuff and the layout is terrible.

"We use Aha! to organize ideas and stories before we put them into Jira for our Dev teams to work on"

What do you like best?

Aha! allows multiple projects and collaborators to act on and organize ideas to get them ready to be put into Jira. It also has Jira integrations which make it really easy to transfer stories to our dev teams.

What do you dislike?

It is not always 100% intuitive. There's a learning curve. It does a lot, but you have to spend some time figuring it out before you can use it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take your time learning what all Aha! does. Implement slowly so you don't have to redo any setup once you learn how you're going to use it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Aha! allows us to keep track of all the ideas that come in from customers, sales, support, etc. We can then organize and prioritize those into a manageable format and get them in front of developers without overwhelming them.

"Makes project planning so easy"

What do you like best?

I like how Aha! integrates well with our existing Jira and since we moved to Agile, its a perfect match for Aha.

I love the ability to set milestones and epics and see in Aha how long to market release and how we can move features out or in to the milestone and automatically see the release date updated.

Lots of reports and graphs to visualize the project and makes project status presentations so easy.

What do you dislike?

There a learning curve to get over and we made a few setup mistakes which in hindsight could have been easily avoided had we not jumped in and tried Aha! out immediately without reading all the documentation.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend Aha! if you already are using Agile and Jira. Makes planning so easy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were looking for a way to easily do project planning and managing which features need to go to the product and at what stage should they go in. Aha! makes planning so much easier as everything is now automatically calculated for you and saves alot of time in making reports. The team is also now able to see how the feature they are working on impacts the deadline.

What do you like best?

The feature and release flow works pretty well, flexible workflows.

What do you dislike?

The UI is a big clunky. Notifications are Off or On, so my not many features for engineering managers like velocity or burn down charts.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Aha has lots of reporting features and is a great fit for Product Managers, although they don't have great tools for developers that over PM tools have.

Our team could leverage this tool better with taking the ideas and putting them to use.

"Aha! The map of our future release"

What do you like best?

As a developper, I like to get a quick views of what the other teams are working on and what are my planned tasks for the future. With other products, I didn't have this insight on the future release of our product. Also, I like to see, without reloading, the changes that other people make to the features & tasks.

What do you dislike?

It's sometimes hard to get a shareable link that shows exactly what I want to another team member. Also I think that the new feature "popup" are intrusive and breaks the layout when I close them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We uses some other product internally to track our developers tasks, but we wanted to have an overview of the future releases for our clients that was more high level. As time move forward, we add more details to those features. It's easier to get an overview of the upcoming features

not enough capacity planning for when too much work is assigned to one individual. Not easy to create project plans when you need to show Mgmt the effort involved in a given task.

What do you like best?

Slick interface, ability to vote on ideas, the different views are useful depending on which piece of the business we are looking at (i.e. browse vs workflow)

What do you dislike?

No mobile app; the complexity makes onboarding new users difficult -- we only use a small portion of the overall functionality

Aha gives users the ability to made roadmaps and views to layout an entire project or team goals. It also provides steps that can be checked off and completed as they're finished. Users can also assign their self or teammates on steps or projects.

What do you dislike?

The whole product is super unintuitive. It looks like it was designed in 1999. I know most users of the product will probably be dev or product teams, but for non developers or product managers, the tool is pretty awful.

Take a day or two to familiarize yourself with the navigation of Aha. Figure out what you want and need to get out of the product before implementing it. If not, it can feel like a hassle and a black hole.

"A project management tool that tries to do everything, but succeeds at very little"

What do you like best?

Aha offers a ton of tools for creating, assigning, managing, and getting an overview of projects & their tasks. If you don't like one way it presents that information, you're sure to find a couple of different views that might give you what you want.

I was not using the high-level project timeline and overview pages, but they seemed like they could be helpful for someone who's overviewing multiple teams.

Their support team was very responsive, but did tend to ignore some problems even when presented with a solution and offers to work with them.

What do you dislike?

All of the tools it does offer are cluttered, over-complicated, and half-baked. There's not a good way to keep your focus to a single project (Referred to as a "release" in Aha!). You're either in the board that shows all of the features (What Aha! calls the top-level tasks in a release) for all of your releases, in the detailed view for 1 release which removes functionality like reordering priority, or you're on their attempt at a Kanban board which shows everything for all members, even ones who have no part in the current release you're looking at. With a team of ~30 members, having a board that shows 30 people for a project of 3 is just untenable.

Aha also doesn't seem to take a stance on how its features should be used. A "release" is comprised of "features", which can have attached the them "requirements" and "to-dos". Requirements MUST live on features, but to-dos can live outside of features. Todos and requirements have different fields which I always find myself wanting a combination of the two. And given all this, Aha offers no suggestion of how you should be structuring your projects. This caused every project in my organization to be managed in a different way, often leading to ignoring either todos, requirements, or both.

They also charge per user based on that user's permissions. We work in a very flat organization where everyone tends to have complete control, but because Aha gets costly when everyone's an admin, we had to bottleneck our flow to a few people who had full control.

For the usability issues, I resorted to writing a chrome extension to try and help people out on my team. You can find it here, though I've ceased development since we have stopped using Aha https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/hgohigknlcabobkokchfabjikhjhklgm/publish-accepted

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try using it and see if it makes sense to you. But don't try to force yourself to work in its ecosystem, if it's not working, it probably won't get better.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're a product team that splits of developers and designers in to small teams to complete features for our product. These teams usually consist of 2-4 people in a team of ~30. Aha was good for keeping us all in the same system, but it was a complete mess within each team's organization of the individual projects.

"Overall Solid Tool"

What do you like best?

I like that you can segment boards so that each user can see their own projects. This makes it easy to share only information that is relevant to each user.

The reports allow you to filter the tables (much like a pivot table in Excel). This makes it easy to report on the status of each project and see exactly what stage each project is in.

What do you dislike?

It would be great to be able to segment the data further and quickly change ownership of certain projects.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have the ability to schedule and track multiple projects at the same time. Additionally, we can create separate views for the end users to allow them to stay focused on their projects. Management can then see an overall view to get a sense of where each project stands.

"A sturdy project management tool"

What do you like best?

Aha is a great tool for roadmapping. It allows you to define your features at a low level, as well as map them onto a high level view. This is very useful, and having both those views in the same place is valuable because it means that we don't have to manage multiple tool sets.

What do you dislike?

Even though they have a nice design, sometimes the interface seems clunky or unresponsive. They do not have a mobile app or mobile friendly site either.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Aha is build by product managers, for product managers, and it shows. I would recommend using their free trial to get started.

Aha helps with project visualization and flow. It allows for easy tracking of issues as well as planning for the project.
