Worth mentioning

What do you like best?

The chart feature. Being able to convey a period of work in a plethora of charts is useful in various scenarios. (ie. Justifying capacity increase, displaying time spent)

Also, being able to hit ctrl+z is best feature.

What do you dislike?

The lack of dynamic options. I am unable to create an ideal capacity VS scope burndown as the needed column will not work inside a formula.

I don't like the tab system and would prefer side menus.

Adding new windows to the To Do List is a strain as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check out other programs such as Jira first, make sure that whichever program you choose has the flexibility you might want further into your project.

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

Hours management, task allocation, and priority planning.

I've realized that setting up a dynamic priority system is next to impossible with Hansoft, thus we have regular meetings to discuss changing priorities.

Hansoft Review

What do you like best?

- Tracking Hour Actuals

- Dashboards are clean and concise

- Multi Project System

- Task Tracking is simple and easy

What do you dislike?

- We have yet to work together in finding a solution for using Hansoft's Bug Tracking System

- There are some issues in regards to Actuals vs Work Remaining that have been address in upcoming patches, hopefully the patch will solve most of the issues.

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

Hansoft has allowed us to view cross team projects on tasks and priority allocation, giving us more capacity to distribute users across other teams for other projects. This helped our team communicate and allowed us to plan for future tasks that we did not think of before. There is still overhead for training up a new user in Hansoft and it can look daunting at first but once you get used to it, the UI is actually quite simple.

What Project Management solution do you use?

Best in class tool for project and product management

What do you like best?

Hansoft's powerful support for planning and visualisation simplifies desicion making and creates a transparency for all parts of the organisation where the tool is used. Hansoft is flexible and easy to adapt to the needs of the organisation or project. It's the only tool I've come across my 20+ years in SW development that is revered by developers, project managers and line management.

What do you dislike?

Support to export the timeline view is missing. Screenshots is a workaround but support to make PDF's would be nice.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it using the free version. The online manual is a very good companion when getting to know Hansoft.

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

Hansoft makes it easier to see the current status of projects. Less time is spent on meetings. Hansoft also enables efficient multi-site development (i.e. less travel).

Had a lot of potential but failed to double down on some of the smaller details

What do you like best?

* Collaborative project management

* Collaborative task ownership

* Supports creative and technical workflows

* Git and P4 integrations

* Reports

* Supports wide range of working disciplines

What do you dislike?

* Accuracy of reports e.g. Really need to be able to assign tasks to a per minute level.

* In Gantt mode, if 2 or more tasks takes less than a day to complete Hansoft, in gantt mode will simply make a less than 1 day task finish in one day and line up the next less than 1 day task to continue the next day.

* Responsiveness and transparency of new features/fixes or addressing user concerns and imrpovement requests

* Ease of Integration to other third party tools software e.g. Git, P4, etc

* Price point for making custom/own integrations

* Lack of in-depth and continuous video/webinars just have a look at www.allegorthimic.com youtube channel and can see the complete difference, they are actively always engaging the community of users and really really helping them to master the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

* Fully evaluate other options on the market.

* Fully understand your teams workflow before considering hansoft. Knowing detailly how your team works is crucial as it is not a magic bullet to solve problems. More technical industries that dont have multiple disciplines and dependencies could get away with not using it, but teams or studios that have 2 or more very different disciplines could consider this as a possible option.

* If your going to use hansoft, really take advantage of its reporting, automation, pipelines and workflows features, and newly added custom columns.

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

* Distributed task and project management and tracking

* Project workflow and methodology for multidisciplinary team

* Increase project management efficiency and workflows

Work with Hansoft, not around it!

What do you like best?

The dashboard 's my absolute favourite, it beats the mundane excel graphs sheets with a dynamic dashboard, that gets updated when the data is updated.

Bug Report/QA has been a great tool for the QA to keep a track on, it records enough details to inform the team what exactly the issue is.

What do you dislike?

Customised Column hidden in Planning is visible after the report is made from the product backlog and I cannot block product backlog visibility from users

Gannt:

Cannot record hours under "duration", instead, it record as days which makes it difficult to track the exact time. Yes, initially you can log in as hours, but when you move the Gannt bar, the hours automatically changes to days and you cannot switch to hours.

* I understand Hansoft is for agile and yes its a hybrid, but it does cause of us a lot of difficulties when we have to make an accurate report on the actual man days.

Agile:

"work remaining" gets wiped off from the record as soon as the task is completed, can not track what was inputted. The only way to retrieve is to deep dive into the task history, which is a nightmare if you have lots of tasks to decipher.

Kanban Pipeline:

Is good if you know how to use it, but be cautious if you switch workflow from kanban piple to default, you will lose all your data record in the kanban pipeline, which makes it very inconvenient.

To Do List

I wish the task could be displayed the same way as it is under planning and not individually, as this can be intimidating at times for some users to see the unclustered tasks, it doesn't look organised and can be confusing when users are assigned lots of multiple task.

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

R&D, Projects that require Agile. I like how easy it is to use the backlog, I can instantly commit to a sprint and uncommit at the same time.

Multiple team silos in one project

What do you like best?

I like how user friendly it can be. There is a bit of a learning curve but everything feels intuitive. Like for the most part when i want to do something there is a natural path to follow that makes sense.

How easy it is to track large scale projects is also very nice, having multiple team silos in each project is quite easy to do.

What do you dislike?

I don't think the graphs are as customization as they could be. For example, stacked graphs could have a more in-depth functionality for showing different pieces of data that follow themes. For example, I have 2 different columns in a bar graph, and 3 pieces of data. I want the first column to be DataSet1, and I want the second column to be DataSet2 & DataSet3. At the moment, the only way to do that is to create a new tag for them and separate it that way. It would be nice to have that functionality built in.

The Board mode is rough all around. The controls feel strange too, like how using the scroll wheel will zoom in. I'd also like the ability to filter tasks through a keyword or other filters, instead of only a Sprint. If there is a large task with many subtasks fitting into the Sprint, I cannot plan each of the tasks in board view and check the progress that way.

There should be more ways to customize the built-in Capacity tracker. I think that it's fantastic at what it does, but it railroads users into that method. Allowing us to do things like add Actuals/Time Spent to the capacity planner would help with agile resource allocation as things come up.

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

Task tracking, capacity planning and hours allocation.

With this we're able to figure out how everybody on the team is spending their day, and we can look for inefficiencies more accurately.
