Agilefant offers project/product management solutions for teams of all sizes and types, from small business to large enterprises. Agilefant enables users to do higher planning whilst keeping track of details and daily updates. Agilefant has both open source and cloud-based versions that offer the basic features that are associated with Scrum and Kanban methods. The tool has features such as project boards, story tree, burn-up and burn-down charts, timeline views, and more. Agilefant also provides a number of advanced features for iteration management, project management, product management and portfolio management.
We started using it for just backlog management and over time evolved into full sprint planning. It was great that the tool allowed us to start small and grow into the full Agile life cycle. Support was great. On numerous occasions we had screen sharing sessions where I should how we were doing thing and our challenges. The support person showed us better ways to accomplish what we wanted to do in Agilefant. AI also liked that we could see in real time as others made changes. That made our remote planning sessions go very smoothly.
I struggled with when to use stories vs tasks. Tasks gave me the flexibility I wanted for tracking progress (planned, spend, remaining), but when several people had tasks for a story you lost visibility to who was working on what on the board. In daily stand ups we had to click on every story to see who had the next task.
Project planning and overiew imporved.
Now we know the status of the project and the forecast can be planned.
Tree view provides good overivew.
My work shows what is on the to do list.
Board shows work for each team member.
The agilefant app has sometimes quite long loading time, not sure what the reason is but this is annoying.
I was able to control and carry out a project with the client until its completion. I could integrate it with a man hours calculation system to give me the inverted times and insert them directly into the system.
Good tool for the planning and control of software development and maintenance projects. Using a list you can easily give priority to the issues, you can clearly see the tail of the pending to do, in process. You can easily establish and see the dependency between issues. You can see in a single table the workload of the developers and it can be moved in the same table, without having to go directly to the issues.
The application is not available to access from iphone or Android. There is no follow-up to the completion of a issues, it needs a Burndown-type graph to see the time remaining to complete the work, it is a bit more complex for a functional user to record the stories and sort them by sprint. It does not have version control, nor does it show traceability.
Streamlined Project Management.
A clean, organized place to put my thoughts and ideas.
Collaboration with other staff
I'm a big fan of Kanban view and this has it. And *so* much more.
I love being able to drag a story (task) into an interation (Sprint). The story stays in the project so the project manager can keep track of it, but it shows up in the iteration as well. When marked complete in the iteration, it's marked complete in the Project.
I also love the integration with Trello. Genius.
Currently doesn't allow selecting sub-stories when click main stories. Stories have to be selected one by one for bulk changes, which can be tedious. Support team says that functionality is coming in a later release. Fingers Crossed!
Thank you Mark, much appreciated. This certainly will make the day for our team.
