"A good tool to plan a release and keeping it aligned with sprints"

What do you like best?

I like simplicity and clarity, with Yodiz boards. Especially Epic and Release board. For my team, it is really helpful to break down and assign work items on any board. We plan releases where a release work is divided into multiple sprints. Teams use Sprint Board to plan and work according to their sprint backlog but as a release manager, I can visualize the most important release items on the top without harming items product backlog priority.

I also like Calendar feature to plan and look at interdependent user stories and due date.We had a little learning curve to start working with Yodiz, but we asked for the demo for easy on-boarding and that worked well in our case.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, we deliver one complete epic in a release. In this case, it would be nice to create epic on release board. As a workaround, we create epic from epics board and then use “Epic User Story” swimlane to track epic user stories using this grouping. User stories that are not associated with any epic comes under No Epic category.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We have been using Yodiz for last 2 years now, and learnt agile practices along with this tool. It has all those features that an agile team needs for running sprint and tracking. You may have a little learning curve to start working with Yodiz, but you can ask for the demo for easy on-boarding.

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

We have been using Yodiz for last 2 years now, and learnt agile practices along with this tool. For me, a good tool should support your team and not restrict its users. With Yodiz customised workflows, we are using Yodiz for multiple projects and each project team is using it their way. It helped us in being more productive and deliver releases within defined timeline.

"Nearly Perfect Bug, User Story, and Project Tracking With One Killer Flaw"

What do you like best?

It's obvious a lot of thought has gone into Yodiz. The program offers everything you might expect from a bug-tracker, and features several niceties like the ability to quickly stub in an issue, even without all the details. For an Agile environment, the clear distinction between User Stories, Epics, Sprints, and Issues is very helpful. As a Product Manager, I'm able to create a User Story, then nest in Issues to help us achieve the goal.

What do you dislike?

There is one major problem with Yodiz, and it's what keeps me from recommending the product to a broader audience: There is no reductive search capability. Yodiz does not use standard search operators, opting to treat every search term as "OR" so your search results get larger the more terms you add. There is no way to get "AND" and "NOT" functionality. This means you have to be very careful with your search terms or spend a lot of time picking through search results trying to find your issue. If you don't have many issues, this might not be a big deal. I'm searching through 4000+ issues, which makes this a massive problem for me. I reported this to Yodiz many months ago, and they assure me the feature is coming in Q1 2018.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're on a product that is very new or not very complex, Yodiz will work for you. I would not recommend Yodiz to established development shops with complex projects until they fix the search. Once that happens, I'll give Yodiz a far more positive review.

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

Yodiz does a wonderful job organizing our Epics, User Stories, and Issues so we are able to streamline our releases without losing any required functionality. Our old product had us missing issues every now and then. That's nearly impossible with Yodiz.

"Great team performance"

Yodiz gives me a more clear way to control my working team. Now I have an ability to create much better products. It really helps me to track progress and now I have detailed statistics and schedule.

Better to say that great solution to have at your work. It is very easy to use and to work with it. With this online service I have more concentration on work duties and that better for all team, in mine opinion.

Recommendations to others considering the product

"The best app for the management for my small team"

What do you like best?

How easily you can start using, that is very similar to other tools for management that the team used before so the integration was really fast, and the graphics and reports that let show to the Engineering Manager only the important information.

What do you dislike?

The logo hehehe everyone thinks that is an app for kids (Sorry but it´s that all my team mention)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Is a cheap tool and have everything you will need to manage your small team (in my situation) and of course the incredible and easy velocity that you can start using with your team (We need 1 week to set everything and start using with the entire team)

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

Definitely the migration from excel files and trello was the best amazing thing that can happen to my team, they usually work with that and they do not have a real view of the progress that they are doing and it was very difficult track the effort of each one, and the biggest benefit was that now we can plan, track, take decisions faster and of course have a control on how the team are using the time and in that way no set more work than they can really do.

"Excellent Service, suits our agile team to a T"

What do you like best?

Everything, they keep innovating, listening to their customers feedback. I keep finding little gems that meet exactly what I was looking for.

It has grown with us, from just managing our single developer, to now more teams, offices, testers and devs located in different locations.

It is simple to use, any new starter picks it up without any lead time.

Well done Yodiz, best in class.

What do you dislike?

nothing much.

Their mobile apps is probably be the next area to focus on, but with so many features even available to the free users, keeping the app simple probably needs some thought. However, their app is pretty awesome too!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give the free version a go, test it out with just 3 users. Ideally thats PM, Dev, Test. Simples.. and if it works add more users. For us it has been great, and we recommend it to other companies and people looking at a good Agile tool. +1 yodiz

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

Agile development, issue tracking, multiple users and teams. Creating custom fields that support Light agile and BDD.

"Team Tracking"

What do you like best?

I love how Yodiz handles real life situations, for instance, I currently work with vendors to develop my product and although I see story estimates for each sprint I want to know how much time is actually spent on a story. The time tracker in Yodiz allows me to do this easily. It is great for management!

What do you dislike?

Time sheets are reasonable but could be improved upon.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have questions, schedule a demo and then you will problem be able to determine if it is right for you.

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

I am now able to track the effort my vendor is using to deliver my projects scope

"Overall good"

What do you like best?

I like the amount of features it brings. It can be very detailed or quite general and simple. Among the functionalities I like best are the chart regarding completion and the planning boards. In the Backlog the completion and way the epics are showed is also really nice.

What do you dislike?

The main thing I dislike is the minimum amount of detail that is required. I you choose between an Scrum Board or a Kanban board you always have to enter tasks as the finer level of detail even if it is counter intuitive in the Kanban Board,on the other hand and interestingly, you can't add tasks to the bugs and issues that are reported during the development process. Being so overwhelming it can lead to teams using it incorrectly or no trying to use it as it should be.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take your time and explore, I am certain you will find the solution you need in it, but it is a good idea to test it for a few sprints and push it to the edge in order to make the right choice.

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

We are trying to develop a software development methodology that can respond accurately to business changes and Yodiz has brought new insights to out own way of working. Among the benefits I have seen is certainty and visibility it gives to management roles when the team members follow the rules, it helps them solving their doubts in implementing solutions and the other roles doubt regarding the value of their requirements and capacity of the team

"Day two with Yodiz"

What do you like best?

I am only on day 2 of using this, but I have to say this is the shift in thinking I needed to be more productive and make sure that all the balls I have up in the air are being dealt with. For me the biggest thing is the layout of the issue tracker board. I am actually using this in a more of a task tracker, but also some bugs too.

What do you dislike?

Nothing so far. Had a little trouble getting back to the app after going to administration, but figured that out.

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

keeping everything going smoothly and setting priorities.

"This product is amazing. I wish i discovered it sooner"

What do you like best?

Full circle ALMS that keeps everything in one place that adopts the best of breed agile process. If i had to single out one specific feature i wouldn't be able to. The whole system works together in a way that is extremely fluid. The workflow out of the box is exactly what we were looking for coming from bloated solutions.

What do you dislike?

No code diff between git pushes to allow for code reviews. If i could have the ability to see a side by side comparison of my git pushes it would be very helpful in our development cycle. I would also like a feature that would include stand ups. The only other thing I can really say I do not like about the system would be the lack of live support. But then again a lot of ALMS and PM Systems do not provide that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

To me this product is a breath of fresh air. If your tired of over complicated or systems that don't give you enough. Give this one a go, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

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

Reducing complex solutions that eat time with a steep learning curve. Most products in this arena are either overly complex, don't provide enough, or feel detached with the solutions trying to be complete by bolting on other products that don't integrate quite right. Yodiz solved this for me by having everything in one place and doing it smoothly.

"good idea, limited potential"

What do you like best?

I think Yodiz have a sound idea, where you can have team discussions away from the office and keep track of collaborations.

Its free for upto 5 users, so ideal for small scale projects or moreso, educational purposes.

Cloud based for easy access.

What do you dislike?

The only true purpose is to provide project collaboration, lacks add-on capabilities.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For budget conscious small-businesses you mind this of use. If you are looking for a free project management then for 5 users definately give this a go. Otherwise for a more defined solution try MSProject.
