Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable features are the reporting in the dashboard and the general way in which we can create test runs is helpful.""The solution is very stable. We've never had any issues with it.""The most valuable features are the flexibility, ease of use for writing new test cases, the test plans, and the composition.""From a testing perspective, the management is awesome. I am able to do testing and then add the reporting and the evidence. It is fair in terms of the price that you're paying. You get what you're paying for."

Cons
"It would be useful if it had its own issue management system. At the moment, it's purely a test management tool and you have to link to a defect management tool, like JIRA. It would be useful if there was an option to use its own defect management tool so that it's integrated and not two separate tools.""I've encountered at some point, some difficulties on the administration side, but I don't remember exactly what they were.""It's not easy to create a custom report. It's not straightforward. A good improvement would be if there was a way to report and create a custom report without using a plugin or scripting language.""I do see room for lots of improvement in it. In terms of usability, duplication with test cases and constant creation of projects isn't easy. There is also too much API integration into automation tools, which is not there in ALM with UFT. Instead of setting it up as a project and using it, we set it up as a system for usability. It also lacks in the traceability aspect. For traceability, you need to use the JIRA plugin and drag traceability on JIRA, but the functionality is still quite limited. The biggest gap is mainframe testing. It would be good if I could start with mainframe testing. Manual granting of access is another issue. There is no API that I could use with another system where it is automated. There is an API for loading somebody to a project but not for adding to the application."

"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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Its price is definitely not more. If they introduce automation, they can charge more."

More TestRail by Gurock Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The pricing is reasonable at this time.""TFS is more competitively priced than some other solutions.""We pay subscription fees on a yearly basis and the price is reasonable.""I wouldn't say that this tool is cheap or expensive but in the middle.""We are using the open-source version."
