The only solution for teams that depend on GitHub
Kommentare: We started using it in our dev teams (most of the company), but it worked so well, that we extended its use to Marketing, Finance and HR. We even created empty repos in GitHub, so that those teams can have their own boards. The cost is reasonable and we ended up with a powerful collaboration tool on shared artifacts (GitHub) and a basic, but sufficient task/project management tool (ZenHub). We even cancelled our Aha! Subscription, because we had simple product needs and the Roadmap feature, in combination with epics was enough for us.
Vorteile: Ingenious way to bypass the issue of GitHub's poor API and data model, that makes it practically impossible for any integration to offer true value, with minimal overhead. It has just enough features to make our life easy, with minimal overhead.
Sometimes (rarely) updates may get lost, when done via ZenHub.
You do need to open the GitHub project occasionally, as you don't have exactly the same ability to modify issues and milestones from within ZenHub.

Nice connection to github
Kommentare: We use ZenHub to represent our backlog and workflow. It has epics and individual issues on the board.
Vorteile: It has the same product management column set up that most PM tools have. One advantage I've seen over other PM softwares is that you can put epics in other epics. This allows you to put multiple epics into one epic to represent a bigger piece of work.
Nachteile: I don't like that it's limited to kanban. You can't have different boards for teams within your repo (or I haven't figured out how) so you're all working off the same board. There aren't specific boards for sprints so you could set up columns to represent your sprint but it's not as easy as something like Jira.

Thank you for the kind words and feedback on ZenHub. You mentioned having a hard time setting up multiple board views on the same GitHub Repo and wanted to help.
We recently launched ZenHub Workspaces which gives different teams the ability to customize their board view when working from the same set of GitHub Repositories.
Here's how to set up your first Workspace:
If you run into any trouble please feel free to reach out to support or myself at any time (email@example.com).
Thank you for being a ZenHub customer!

Vorteile: I love how this software takes an existing feature (i.e. GitHub issue) and literally supercharges it, giving it new scope and meaning. It lets you organize work in a fast, reliable and effective way with teams of any sizes. I’ve been using it with a small team of web developers and it really changed for the better the way we plan our sprints and how well we communicate progress to other stakeholders.
Nachteile: The learning curve might seem a bit steep, you need to become familiar with how GitHub features like issues and labels map to concepts like milestones and epics, but once you get the gist of it you are going to love this software.

Very simple but wouldn't use it
nice for simple projects if you don't want to use any other software since GH already comes as a repo
but overall I wouldn't use it for serious projects
- integration with Github very very closely
- lack of features
- no command+f search

Seamless planning layer for GitHub issues
Kommentare: We're using ZenHub to organize and manage the code development inside of GitHub. We use Chrome / FireFox plugins to add the ZenHub layer directly into GitHub.
1. It works seamlessly on of the original GitHub site (via the Chrome / FireFox plugin).
2. It provides the detailed guide not only on how to use the tools but on how to manage agile projects in general.
3. It provides a really slick and well-thought interface and usability experience.
There are some details that I wish would be improved:
1. I wish that sub-issues of an Epic could be ordered (when planning viewing them in the proper order is important).
2. I miss the ability to add automated actions, like:
2.1. Move issue to a certain pipeline when a code review is requested
2.2. Move issue to a certain pipeline when a code review is approved
2.3. Switch issue to a certain assignee when moved to a pipeline
4. ZenHub provides the "Done" pipeline, but the issues there are not actually counted as "done" in the reports.
3. Now ZenHub allows viewing issues as a pop-up in the pipelines. I wish the same experience would be available from the Epic planning board.

Zenhub finally made my developers care about the administration
Vorteile: The code of my team lives in github so therefore, so do my developers. We used JIRA for change and defect management but developers found it tedious. Not so with github.
The UI has some inconsistencies that annoy me:
* Text fields do not store their value unless you press update, but things like dropdowns update as soon as you release the mouse. It makes me uncertain: did this particular change take or not.
* The close button puts the ticket in the closed state (in addition to closing the window) but does not pop up a message that it basically says we're done, nor asks to specify anything. Especially in the beginning, this made it far too easy to remove tickets from the board by mistake.

Integrates well with Github.
Zenhub is integrated with Github and thus enable me access this program with my Github login. It also provides me with an intuitive layout to monitor the progress of projects I manage.
I have also skipped using Jira and depended fully on Zenhub to delegate tasks to my team members at work ,and for disaster recovery management.
Nachteile: Zenhub's user interface is very much clumsy and takes time to get used to. It also renders my Github page unusable ,while it is active.

Awesome when paired with GitHub
Vorteile: ZenHub's kanban view is great for me to understand my project management easily with its ability to filter vastly!
Nachteile: When zenhub goes down, there's a vague indication that it is not derivative of the end user's side.

Awesome organizing tool that adds to the feeling of accomplishment
Kommentare: Organizing our sprint cycles by team and tracking issues by team.
Vorteile: Allows clear visualization of issues created by subject matter. Allows for easy filtering between issues. Our team also uses it to organize issues per person for each sprint cycle.
Nachteile: There is nothing that I don't like about this add on to Github - it's very helpful with organization and visualization.

Zenhub makes it easier to manage current sprint work
Vorteile: We keep all of our issues for upcoming and current work in GutHub, previously using GitHub Projects for our scrum board. The ZenHub extension provides workspaces and make managing agile work much easier!
Nachteile: Somewhat frequently, the ZenHub tab will not load at all. Refreshing the page typically resolves the issue, but sometimes you have to troubleshoot further.

Project Management Tools for the Dev Savvy
Kommentare: Having used more robust project/task management products in the past, ZenHub feels a little lightweight, but having introduced it to multiple teams who have not, setup and adoption was quick due to ease of use and an intuitive interface.
Vorteile: ZenHub allowed for our QA and Product Management teams to quickly and effectively work with Development on issues, workflows, and processes. A customizable Kanban board added planning capabilities to help organize our teams' approach to time and work management. Collapsible pipelines and filters allow different teams to easily focus only on what's important and relevant to each team.
Nachteile: With multiple repositories and a complex workflow, ZenHub can be slow to load. Some additional automation options would be an excellent improvement (things like automated issue assignment based on pipeline changes), or if they exist, make these options easier to find and implement.

Power tools for GitHub issues
Kommentare: If you like GitHub issues but want to see them in a Kanban-style board, then ZenHub is the solution.
Vorteile: ZenHub lets you see the state of your GitHub issues at a glance: what's new, what's in progress, what's done. It can pull issues from multiple GitHub repos into a single board, giving a great overview for managers. It has the clean look-and-feel of GitHub.
Nachteile: For most teams, ZenHub is overkill. GitHub's labels and milestones, combined with its powerful search, are sufficient to organize and track issues.

Better than the regular GitHub Ticketing Feature
-Increases productivity when working with the ticketing features within GitHub
-Organizes all tickets in modern software development views
-Good reporting tools
-Integrates well with GitHub
-When compared to other issues/bugs products, there are not as many features
-Seems like enhancements releases are slow
-Not sure if feedbacks are implemented because I see a lot of enhancement requests that I agree with but it may be closed or delayed

Zenhub is a lightweight project management tool embedded to your github repo.
Vorteile: It is a great complement for github. It basically includes most of the functions for agile project management and users only have to install the addon. Great documentation too.
Nachteile: The main problem I encounter with this tool is that I wish there was a way to create a board without a repo. This might not be a fault whereas an special feature I missed sometimes

Very happy with using Zenhub for project management.
Vorteile: I like that Zenhub is built right on top of Github and I don't have to go to some other site for all the info. The boards view is a great way to see all my issues or all issues in some epic, etc.
Nachteile: With Zenhub you don't get as many analytics or reporting features as you could with something like Jira.

This product helped me and my team manage our software projects better
Vorteile: I love that it leverages a product that every serious developer is familiar with (GitHub) and augments one of its core features (Issues) to help manage projects in a much more efficient way.

Simple work flow tool
Vorteile: It's so simple to use that I believe anyone with an experience with any todo list app can easily make use of this tool. It's integration with github makes development so easy.
Nachteile: I always have to refresh my my page severally before I can see update in different column of my workflow which sometimes can be time wasting and frustrating.

Easier than Jira, but limited
Kommentare: An easy to set up management tools
Vorteile: Is great that you can set up a Board so quickly and integrate it with Github super easily, epics are probably one of the best features
Nachteile: I feel it can be much better, is not intuitive enough and there is still a learning curve, it would be better if it was more like basecamp in terms of design

Easier way to manage GitHub Projects, Tickets and Sprints
Kommentare: We used to use waffle.io but it is going away so we have tried out ZenHub. It does have a nice UI and makes it easier to look at and review projects and issues, especially with Sprints, but I am not sure if it is worth paying for. We might go back to just using free GitHub's default baked in project/issue tracking and make custom fields to use with sprints.
Vorteile: Staying ontop of a sprint and moving around tickets in projects is much easier to do in ZenHub than GitHub.
Nachteile: This software does cost money and not sure if the features it brings is worth paying for each team member to have access to ZenHub.

It's powerful to integrate directly into your GitHub project
Vorteile: The kanban tasks are linked to the Github project directly with all the issues and detail, just one single click can see all the details and configure for sprints and milestones.
Nachteile: The flow of the Kanban is not able to customized and sometimes it's not easy to use for the projects not so much related to the development. And the layout is less beautiful compared to other Kanban tool.

Zenhub is the best

It's great if you really need it
Kommentare: My organization used ZenHub. A lot of people in my organization really appreciated the features it brought to the table, but I didn't find those features very valuable. The killer feature seemed to be kanban for most of my colleagues, but I'm not a huge fan of kanban. We could live without it, I think.
Vorteile: Seamless intergration
Nachteile: Adds a lot of noise to GitHub
