Actual question: Tell me which project management software you use and what you hate about it. What do you like about it, if anything?

    I've been working on and off on something similar myself. Would live to see which direction you take it to.

    I love the collaborative aspect of www.notion.so and for serious projects https://clickup.com/

    for medium sized personal projects i use https://zenkit.com

    And code related project management have a look at GitKraken Boards. https://www.gitkraken.com/boards Which integrates the git progress into the planing tool. And with GitKraken Timeline you can hold meetings to show off the progress.

    I second what @heyheni says about ClickUp. It even generates branch name for each task. Visual editor may be a jerk around <code>, but overall experience is sleek so far.

    If project is open source, then for self-hosted solution I can recommend only Phabricator.

    I use MS project sparringly, though this applies to office in general; I like how easy it is to modify things via code. But I really hate working with visual basic.

    We're on Jira. Good for reading through the exact history of old issues when maintaining code, too many mouse clicks to get around the interface and not intuitive sometimes as to finding things. It's pretty slow to load and render ticket information as well, which is annoying

    Jira, the gitlab one, trello.

    Jira was shit, but had a few good burndown charts and whatnot. And well, multiple levels of subtask. Gitlab has this shortcut for timing things, where you can write down hours you've spent. The charts are pretty useless tho. Trello, back when I used it, it didn't connect to jackshit including git.

    I can suggest you do check git commits. Being able to close a ticket or show progress on a ticket or subtask or subsubtask via a commit is really handy. As well, have appropriate charts. Managers in reality use fairly few charts for most of their work.
