Zoho Sprints is Manageable and Customizable

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: 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.

Pros:

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.

Cons:

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.

Alternatives Considered: Zoho Projects, Trello and Microsoft Teams

Reasons for Choosing Zoho Sprints: Most of the features were free and the rest was included with the trial. We used Zoho for other business processes and decided to give it a try.

Switched From: Trello

Reasons for Switching to Zoho Sprints: Price and availability. Messages and alerts were in Zoho.

The Best Agile Project Management Solution ever built!

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: We have been using Zoho Projects and to our development model, this was a better choice. We switched to Sprints and We love it more than ever. This product has increased the entire team's productivity by a very large extent.

Pros:

Amazingly user-friendly and fast. Very fast updates and new features. Ideal for startups who work from simplest software applications to most complex one's. Amazing customization options, beautifly laid out with neat UI. Quick support and perfect resolution to queries.

Cons:

Nothing Specific but we are looking forward to get some friendly features like Cumulative timesheets across the project for a user. Its very annoying to calculate every user's individual project's timesheet to know a month's performance.

Alternatives Considered: Jira and Trello

Reasons for Choosing Zoho Sprints: Zoho Projects is meant for Waterfall model of software development. We are now into agile model hence we made the switch.

Switched From: Zoho Projects

Reasons for Switching to Zoho Sprints: This was value for money, easy to configure and get it running and was offering lot more features in a bundle ideal for our requirement.

Best way to Replace Jira and Reduce the cost without even missing Jira.

5.0 4 weeks ago New

Comments: It's a final and total replacement of Jira and that's more than enough for us.

Pros:

It has everything an agile software development team needs. It coherently works with the onboarding and attendance of employees along with project management, which is a plus. And its less complex and less expensive than Jira, which we previously used.

Cons:

If they can develop resource management or something of that sort that can provide us at a glance view of who is free in our team even for an hour then that would increase our productivity multifold, not to mention reduce idle time.

Alternatives Considered: monday.com, ClickUp and Asana

Reasons for Choosing Zoho Sprints: It was difficult to handle multiple systems and the interface of Jira was difficult to use.

Switched From: Jira and Google Workspace

Reasons for Switching to Zoho Sprints: Prices compared to features.

Worst project management software I've ever used

1.0 2 years ago

Comments: Absolutely horrible. Doesn't integrate well with Zoho Desk, Zoho CRM, or any of the Zoho projects. Horrendous UI. Buggy and glitchy. Run - don't walk - away from this part of Zoho. There are plenty of solid project management/agile management tools out there that offer great value - this would be dead last in ratings.

Pros:

Zoho One generally has good breadth and value for money. Zoho Sprints should be removed from the Zoho platform. I suppose if you were running a team of yourself, and hated your time but love clicking your mouse and being frustrated, this might be a good choice.

Cons:

Absolutely unusable. The integrations into the rest of Zoho One's products is barely there. The interface is not intuitive. Buttons are completely in the wrong place. If you asked a UX designer to create a piece of software with the maximum amount of clicks and that forces a user to really slow down and search for how to use the software, they would struggle to design Zoho Sprints.

Alternatives Considered: Jira and ClickUp

Reasons for Choosing Zoho Sprints: Made a bad choice, went back as soon as we could undo the carnage Zoho Sprints caused us.

Switched From: ClickUp

Reasons for Switching to Zoho Sprints: Bundled as part of Zoho One. Good value on the surface, but that was dead wrong.

How we changed from a cascade methodology to a scrum one with Zoho Sprints

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: We are still growing around it, learning how to implement it in a proper way, but we are feeling very satisfied with the starting results.

Pros:

How easy it is to move your team from another solution to this one, after a proper scrum training and with the online training available.

Cons:

We are currently using Zoho Projects coming from a cascade methodology, we wrote to Zoho's customer service to check if there was a way to migrate our projects data to Zoho Sprints but we have not received any answer yet.

Alternatives Considered: Jira, monday.com and Asana

Reasons for Choosing Zoho Sprints: Going from a cascade method to a scrum/agile one

Switched From: Zoho Projects

Reasons for Switching to Zoho Sprints: We have already used Zoho products before, it felt easier and closer to use than other options.
