Zoho Sprints est une solution collaborative de planification et de suivi de projet basée sur le cloud pour les équipes agiles, qui propose des outils de planification par glisser-déposer, des planches Scrum, des minuteurs et des feuilles de temps, des plannings de réunion, des tableaux de bord, des rapports et un flux d'activités. Le logiciel est conçu pour être utilisé par des équipes de toutes tailles gérant plusieurs projets et propose des applications natives pour iOS et Android.
Sprints comprend un centre de planification par glisser-déposer, qui permet aux utilisateurs de créer des sprints et des éléments de backlog, avec des affectations d'utilisateurs, des points d'estimation et une hiérarchisation. Le tableau Scrum visualise tout le travail pour chaque sprint, donnant à tous les utilisateurs un aperçu de la progression de la tâche. Les statuts de travail peuvent être personnalisés et les utilisateurs peuvent glisser-déposer des éléments de travail, des histoires et des bogues dans différentes étapes de réalisation. Les éléments de travail peuvent également être triés par couloirs en fonction de la priorité, de l'histoire ou des points d'estimation, et les graphiques d'activité de sprint permettent aux utilisateurs de suivre la progression de tout sprint en cours. Le tableau de bord donne aux utilisateurs une vue d'ensemble des métriques clés du projet, avec un résumé hebdomadaire des éléments de travail et l'achèvement global. Zoho Sprints génère automatiquement une série de rapports, notamment des graphiques de vélocité, des graphiques de burnup et de burndown, et des diagrammes de flux cumulatifs, permettant aux utilisateurs de suivre les progrès, d'identifier les goulets d'étranglement et d'ajuster les objectifs.
Les utilisateurs peuvent suivre les heures facturables et non facturables dans la feuille de temps Sprints, avec un minuteur global qui peut être démarré depuis n'importe quel endroit du système. Le temps pour chaque élément de travail et membre de l'équipe peut être enregistré, et les feuilles de temps peuvent être approuvées en un seul clic par les Scrum Masters et les propriétaires de produits. Sprints permet également aux utilisateurs de planifier des réunions, y compris des critiques de sprint, des rétrospectives et des stand-up quotidiens. Les utilisateurs peuvent définir des agendas de réunion, inviter des participants et appliquer des limites de temps aux réunions. Les rappels sont automatiquement générés et envoyés aux flux d'activité et aux courriels des participants.
TWO THUMBS DOWN!! Who is such an idiot that came up with a concept of a "Global View" concept - an Icon that you have to click simply to access your completed sprints/workitems - that too ungrouped dumped in front of you??? Honestly, Zoho - being such a large corporation, I put so much value into your brand when I picked your Sprints. Your CEO should read and try creating and managing one project himself/herself - NOT WATCH A DEMO as a passive audience member - I would be curious to see how many in the senior leadership of this product called Zoho Sprints remain in their job at end of that experience of creating and managing a single project with multiple sprints! How hard can be creation of a user interface that guides user through...
- Creation and management of EPICs, associate work items and sprints, and print meaningful reports for a given EPIC?
- Listing all sprints together - and marking completed/canceled/upcoming/active sprints as such? And allow user to click through and access all of the details of that selected sprint? And allow user to generate a meaningful summary and detailed reports for that sprint?
- Allowing you to generate a project-level report that includes all Epics, Sprints, Work Items reflected in there at summary or detailed level based on who the user is.
Also, I don't think permissions work correctly: I have someone in my team as "Manager" but he can't see any of the completed items in the "Global View", but I can as an Admin??????
Positive First impression is the only positive note I can make on this software. During my free trial, I got carried away with pretty look of this application and charts/dashboards etc., and signed up for a year long Professional contract. BIG MISTAKE!
These developers are like a fresh kids out of some d-School, who have no clue that people need to be able to access their data efficiently at a later point after data was entered into this thing that leads it to ABYSS of no-where land! There are plenty of pretty looking charts that DO NOT ALLOW click-throughs for further details. AND Literally, there are no printable reports in the system - a chart is not a report! And exported Excel spreadsheet with hodge-podge of my data slapped together is not a report either, my friend!
There is literally NO CONSISTENT WAY of creating/accessing your Sprints.
We’re really sorry to see that our product did not meet your expectations. This is certainly not a situation we want to see our customers in. Thank you for sharing what you went through in great detail. We read your feedback carefully and feel we can address them. Let us take them one by one.
1. Purpose of Global View
All the info we show in the beginning is just a starting point. You can filter, search, and sort within this to drill down to the information you want. The enterprise plan also has a custom-view-tab where you can customise based on one or more criteria. You can then save these custom views you created for quick access later.
2. User interface that guides through Epics module
There is indeed such an interface. Through six different steps, it takes you through all you can do with epics. And it fires up just after you create your first epic. If this is disabled, you can view it any time by clicking the ‘help tour’ icon at the bottom right bar. The same option is available not just in this module but across the product.
3. List all sprints
We are working on making the sprint counters in the dashboard clickable, which would let you view this. An update we are planning for the custom view should show you the same info here also.
4. Detailed reports
Please check if you’ve seen all these reports. In the reports module, burn up and burn down are shown by default for sprints. However, this can be changed to show the same info for epics. Additionally, we also have an epic progress report. You can view a sprint level dashboard, by clicking the ‘view details’ button next to the sprint name on the board module. Custom sprint-wise reports and dashboards are ‘work in progress’ and we can let you know as soon as they are ready. All our existing reports are, and future reports will be, printable.
5. Project level report of all sub-items
As mentioned in point 1, you can drill down to this by filtering from the global view. And you need not do this everytime - you can save this view to get to it quickly.
6. Manager not able to see all info in global view
The manager is probably looking under the ‘My View' tab in the default view. The purpose of this view is to see just his or her own items. The manager can see all items in all the sprints he or she is part of by choosing the appropriate criteria in the custom view.
7. Click through reports
We do provide click throughs wherever applicable. However, some reports aggregate info from several views, so we cannot provide a click through here. In reports that show past activity, again, we cannot provide click throughs as the underlying data may have changed over time. If you feel we have missed a clickthrough where it is possible, do let us know the specific case and we will add it ASAP.
I would like to share that the team that built this product also built Zoho Projects, a project management platform that has been around for over 10 years. They have spent these years developing domain expertise, honing the product and improving everything that adds to the customer experience.
So it follows that the experience you had is something we are determined to change. We would like to speak with you on a call to learn more from you, walk you through these features and do our best to meet your needs. Please get in touch with us by mailing to email@example.com.
We decided to use Scrum methodology. Zoho Sprints was able to handle backlog and bug log the way we have been using it. It was available and it worked without a huge learning curve for a short deadline.
I like the customization of features, especially creating card templates and statuses. Custom templates comes in handy when we are importing from another platform like Trello and we want to use the same format. I also like the integration between other platforms including Zoho Projects for Gantt charts. I like that we can add a custom 'Status Type'. I used this feature to add a 'Review' status for code review. I also like the integration with Zoho Projects and Trello. I also liked how I can simply reorder users stories or work items, from sprints or backlog, into different Epics.
I found Epics to be a little confusing. I am curious as to why this is a premium feature. It appears there are many other features I would consider premium. Some of the dashboard items were hard to setup to be useful.
I was looking for a tool that could replace the simplicity of Trello but providing the robustness of Jira.
Trello is so simple and flexible but lacks a lot of project management features. Jira is very complete but past experiences made me not like it that much.
Zoho Sprints does that and even more. It is such a well done product that only Jira would compare but, IMHO, Zoho Sprints is way better.
I like how one can have a lot of info in one tool without feeling overwhelmed by it. You can hide and show lists, panels, columns, and more, to have the needed context.
I didn't use the timesheet but it also very helpful to have an in-app timetracker to keep everything in one place.
Nicely done, Zoho team.
- Sprint planning
- Epics boards
- Sprint meetings
- Image attachment by pasting them
- Velocity charts
- Some image attachments wouldn't produce a thumbnail
- For some reason tasks and bugs cannot be move to a sprint from the backlog if they do not belong to a story
- Cannot order stories by priority :(
My team was charged with developing a new version of the software that we use on a day to day basis and so we not only needed to coordinate with our own internal team members but also external contractors and software developers. Zoho Sprints is fast and great for use on mobile phones (at least, on iPhone). Clean and manageable as well, which is we we kept using it for 2 years.
It would be nice if the file sharing feature were more robust as it is rather limited. It also take a while to upload/download files from different projects.
This is the 3rd Zoho product I'm working with and i loving them.
The best was how easy it was to use. Didn't need any training or videos to start using it.
It has what you need to run the projects. Simple and complete
The bad and good thing is that you have the basics and more that you will require to run many projects. I guess that there are some things that you will have in any other solution that this one doesn't have. to be honest I didn't miss any. It's a great solution
