Excelent software to manage Github issues

What do you like best?

I like how you can see the status of a Github project in a single screen. Also, it's easy to manage issue and move them between columns to change issue's status.

There's no additional configuration to do, just give permissions and the application work. Also, I can create or manage issues from a pretty interface instead the one from Github.

What do you dislike?

That only works with Github, it would be great if it could work with any control version system and any repository hosting service.

On old computers the interface could be "heavy".

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's really easy to use, you don't need to install any aditional software.

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

I'm solving the problem of don't knowing the current status of a project inside a Github repository. Also, github issues are limited and this apps let me add more stuff and attach them to tags/status to know what's the internal workflow status of the project.

A better Trello

What do you like best?

I liked the visualization of the work needing to be done, but at the time it was a basic Trello board with an integration to GitHub. Nothing crazy in the way of changing the way the team was doing work.

What do you dislike?

The lack of flexibility in views. It is just a Kanban board with GitHub, nothing too advanced. There wasn't too many options in terms of reporting at the time I used waffle.io

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is worth the free trial to see what it is about, but there are a lot of applications out there that do the same today.

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

We were trying to give transparency to our QA group on what was ready to test and have a tool that helped facilitate discussions with Dev and QA on strategy and next steps.

Cool Interface and Integration

What do you like best?

The best thing about Waffle is that it connects labels and issues easily with Github. That integration makes it really easy to track issues and the code that goes into resolving those issues.

What do you dislike?

No issue tracking software is perfect for everyone, and I suppose having data in more than one place (Github AND the Waffle board) can make things a bit messy. But the information CAN be found, and that's helpful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

No product is perfect, but this one does just fine and integrates with Github. People seem to like it better than Jira, but again, no one seems to like these tools. :-)

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

It helps us keep track of what we're working on, who's working on it, and how long we expect it to take. It's helpful that it moves issues along the tracking system when various labels are removed and/or applied.

Easy to visualize development

What do you like best?

The integration with Github is a big thing for us to use Waffle. We have completely tie our Github workflow with waffle, so when engineers open a PR, the issue will automatically remove from one stage to another.

It provides the free version!

What do you dislike?

It's lack of visual cue to differentiate issues, like whether an epic, feature, bug etc.

Also, it's kind of a steep price step to unlock the only two metrics. It doesn't worth it for small startup

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

We use waffle to visualize and manage issues in github. Waffle has given us a better picture of the development worflow, also makes life lots easier with the github integration

Great for bringing Kanban to Github

What do you like best?

Coming up with a workflow that fits our engineering style and prioritizing issues quickly based on the labels/time decay of the issue.

What do you dislike?

No intuitive way to create issues from the Kanban. The 'note' feature can be a little confusing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's not a substitute for a dedicated project management suite. It's pretty lightweight, so it's good for smaller teams, but as you grow, it might not be the best choice.

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

Prioritization and keeping track of engineering issues.

Easily track issues while linking to Github

What do you like best?

I like that it's immediately integrated with Jira. So I can keep track of everything like Trello does, but can easily access Github issues and PR's from the waffleboard

What do you dislike?

I wish that there was a way to integrate PR's created into one of the waffleboard lanes

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you plan on keeping the majority of your issue and bug tracking in waffle, you'll need to be very familiar with using github.

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

We're getting away from Jira and all the mess that that can cause with tracking issues and current features. Waffle makes it easy to access issues and we simply just link the PR in the issue so that we can access the very PR that's intended to resolve the issue
