Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The ability to reuse test cases already used across projects is the most valuable feature of this solution. We don't need to create new ones.""The user-friendly features are the most valuable. For example, migration of requirements and migration of test cases and the creation of traceability. You have various reports that you need. The plug-ins that are available to connect with the other tools.""The reporting functionality helps vendors and technical resources identify bugs and issues that need to be addressed. The simple dashboard-style home page makes training end-user testers simple and straightforward. The actual testing UI is VERY straightforward and very intuitive for the end-users that test the system since very often we pull from business and operational users to help test new systems."

"I like the Kanban board. It is very useful in terms of seeing who is working on what and what the current status of work is.""I like the build management features and the integration with Jenkins and many other tools.""This solution enables us to link all items usefully, in the way we use Agile.""The most valuable features are the dashboard and task-selection capability.""The interface is easy to navigate.""The most valuable feature is the backlog.""Good branching and labelling features.""The most valuable feature is simplicity."

Cons
"It should develop integration with JIRA. We have some complexities which caused us not to decide to integrate it with our JIRA, like synchronous data.""Migrating is not very easy. It depends on the organization, how efficient and effective the decision-making process is. The plug-ins should be easier and more integrated rather than the user trying to integrate the tools which are more popular, like Jira et al.""The UI for managing test cases, test sets, test runs could be a little more integrated, currently, these feel disjointed at times and confusing. Also, the test steps page needs to display the test steps closer to the top of the UI so as to not have to scroll down to find."

"In the next release, I would like them to include integration for various projects, similar to what JIRA has, and they could create this feature on the dashboard.""One of the areas that could be improved is to have an effective full lifecycle management.""The test management interface is not very handy.""The interface can be improved and made more user-friendly.""I would like to see the reporting features expanded so that I can see details on the users connected to all of the projects.""The program and portfolio planning facility can be improved.""Integration from Visual Studio could be improved.""They should have design patterns in TFS for the development team, and design patterns for the QA."
