Taiga

Project management platform for agile developers & designers

4.3/5 (59 reviews)

Taiga Overview

Taiga is an open source project management platform built for startups, agile developers, designers and project managers. The platform is fully customizable and handles both simple and complex projects using agile methodologies and features such as scrum, kanban and epics. Multiplatform importers allow users to bring in projects from Trello, Jira, Github, and Asana into Taiga.

Users are able to manage agile product development using scrum methodology; as the project advances, the backlog decreases. Product backlogs are ordered into the project’s specific delivery sequence, and are broken down into manageable, executable tasks called sprints. When a team initiates a sprint, they commit to delivering a certain amount of stories from the backlog. Kanban methodology allows users to divide project development into multiple stages using cards, which provide details for each task. Users can move the cards from one stage of completion to the next, in order to track progress.

Epic user stories within Taiga offer a host of planning opportunities for individuals managing multiple projects. Users are able to establish and track hierarchical or related relationships between user stories on different projects. Taiga allows users to keep a list of the project’s issues and enhancements, and classify them and assign them to the relevant team member for fixing or monitoring. Users can also add wiki pages and edit them directly via a browser, as well as upload important content and documentation. Additional features include social management, public timelines, integrations, and a Taiga API.

Team productivity and management has been simplified. Progress tracking and reporting has become easier when we break down tasks to the bare bones. The Slack and GitLab integrations have been nice for modifying tickets from commits and merges.

Pros

The Kanban board is my favorite feature for tracking feature development status. The progress bar of what has been completed on the Kanban page is very nice as a progress indicator when informing clients of progress on certain features. The custom fields have been convenient for billing purposes and the ease of use when moving tickets around is nice and fun to do.

Cons

The issues board often ends up with a lot of smaller features that can be categorized as "Enhancements" but it's still confusing that their under the Issues umbrella and even their URL's say issue. A way to have enhancements that don't qualify for a full story, but are not an actual issue/bug should be categorized in a different why, or at least represented differently.

Helped manage our sprints

Pros

Very easy to use with drag and drop functionality.
Very nice api to plug into the data.
Like the organization of the tasks, stories, etc. Very well laid out.
Makes it easy to manage our stuff.

Cons

Would like the ability to drag multiple items on the backlog, not just the Kanban.
Be nice to be able to add a story when looking at a sprint, rather than add to the backlog and then have to drag it into the sprint.
Be nice to have a filter on the taskboard for a particular user... so I could say just show me my stuff and it would only show stories and tasks assigned to me
Not a fan of the new pricing model... not sure I will be able to get my manager to continue

The best agile project management tool is Taiga

Pros

When JIRA didn't meet our needs, we analyzed every tool on the market and decided on Taiga due to it having the lowest number of clicks per action in our workflow. Its easy to get started with, the search features are fantastic, and it scales well from tiny projects to monsters.

Cons

We use almost exclusively the issue tracker because of it is the most flexible and has the best searching/ordering of the Taiga views. However, issues can't be owned by user stories or epics, which limits our ability to organize large projects. I wish issues could be used as children of larger scope items like epics.

Pros

- Workflow configuration, many options around status

- Pay to get multiple project on the Mobile App
- Some feature "hard to find"
- Some important nice feature missing in my process
(ex 1 when you promote an issue to a US, you need to keep attachment and such things)
(ex 2 hard to use Kanban & Scrum for the same project)
- lack of tutorials for new features (never manage to drag&drop multiple cards)
- Need to improve backlog priorization
- Link between projects, import, export need

Taiga is the tool to organize the tasks of all my projects

This tool has allowed me to organize, control and follow each of the assigned tasks for the execution of all my projects.

Pros

What I like most about software taiga is that it allows me to organize the tasks of my projects well and have control of them, since the programmer must indicate when a task is in progress or when the task is finished, besides allowing us to know the Development time of each one. It is also super useful because you can add the client and the same can see how the development of your project is and follow up.

Cons

Although I really like Taiga and I use it in all my projects, it would be interesting to have a mobile application, in which to have a summary of each project and be able to have the status without a computer necessarily.
