    The only solution for teams that depend on GitHub

    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Alternatives Considered

    Asana, ProductPlan, Trello, monday.com, Productboard, Zendesk, Aha! and Jira

    Reasons for Switching to ZenHub

    None of them solved much at all, for a company that relies so much on GitHub. With ZenHub we don't have to worry about issue duplication, manual overhead, issues with bidirectional synchronization, integrations only with PRs, looking for the source of truth and many more issues I identified during the evaluation/selection process.

    We use ZenHub to represent our backlog and workflow. It has epics and individual issues on the board.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Response from ZenHub

    Hello,

    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 protected]).

    Thank you for being a ZenHub customer!

    Easiest to use for scrum/kanban

    Reviewed on 2021-09-22

    Pros

    This has been a tank in my project management arsenal. The simplicity and integrations available with Zenhub are amazing. It's easy to catch on and integrate with the team. U can have multiple boards and have tickets sync across multiple boards based on how you have programmed it.
    I use this as the first option for any new project I take on. U can set up feature tickets or bug tickets from the support board to automatically go into dev boards and sync with the product road map board.
    The programmability is amazing and it generates the perfect reports as needed as well as the simplicity and ease of use makes it my first choice.

    Cons

    I have nothing to say but good words about zenhub.

    Powerful project management and status tracking for development and product teams

    Overall, I'd highly recommend Zenhub to any development or product team as a powerful project management system that will add just what Github lacks in that regard on its own.

    Pros

    The kanban board is an invaluable view into what our development team is doing. Tracking the status in this way is really helpful as it helps me know when to chime into the process (i.e. during the estimation phase or QA phase).

    As a product designer, I can keep track of where Github issues are at, easily chime in with feedback during the quality assurance process and provide answers to design-related questions for the development team.

    My favorite feature is the integration with Github. This adds a layer on top of Github that is extremely helpful for project management and estimation

    Cons

    I really have nothing bad to say about it. It meets our project management needs.
