More Hiptest Pros »

"Good branching and labelling features.""The most valuable feature is the backlog.""The work item feature is most valuable. It allows us to store all product requirements. We can also link the test cases to those requirements so that we know which feature has already been tested, and which one is waiting for testing. We can also couple the code reviews, unit tests, and automated tests into these requirements. It is reliable. It has all the features and good performance. It also has reporting tools or analysis tools.""As far as queries are concerned, creating, grading, or customizing the queries as a primary requirement is very easy to do.""The most valuable features are the dashboard and task-selection capability.""The most valuable feature is simplicity.""I feel that the test plan and test tools are more manageable in TFS.""It's is a very stable solution."

"The reporting needs to be improved."

More Hiptest Cons »

"I'm looking for specific options that aren't currently available, such as active status, new status, or what's currently in progress.""The execution of test cases could stand improvement.""It has been really dated. When you start to work more in an agile environment, it is not really that flexible. They tried to replicate the look and feel of Jira, but it is not quite there. It was nice to use in the past, but it is not as flexible now with the changing development environments and methodologies.""There are many things that I cannot do, and I have a lot of bugs.""This solution is quite old and it is already being bundled as Azure DevOps Server.""Integration from Visual Studio could be improved.""The interface can be improved and made more user-friendly.""The program and portfolio planning facility can be improved."
