I haven’t had the "chance" to use Jira (yet). We use Azure Devops (Boards) and I find it very intuitive
I've worked on projects within different organisations using Jira and have had completely different experiences each time.
If used correctly (ie exactly as intended and by *everyone* involved in the project) it's a great tool but it's a complete pain to try to figure out on your own (like with a project manager not knowing what they're doing).
JIRA is fucking great and i’ll have a go at anyone who says otherwise!
Crismon2471yJira is a clunky overengineered piece of unperformant crap. It makes sense to have all this relations and functionalities in big mega corp but for the medium sized companies its just a buzzkill. I mean in addition to being fucking slow all the time with a billion buttons, inputs, labels and forms if a software dev struggles to get familiar with your software you are doing it wrong. The only ones who really know their way around it is management and product because they use it the whole fucking day.
I use it for 9 months now and I still want poke my head through the monitor every second day because of it.
mundo0352321yYou are wrong about trello, specially if you consider there needs to be a board per epic when the project is big enough.
Bottom line is: it is not the tool that is wrong, it is the process and implementation of the tool that is messed up.
Ever tried to screw a screw with a hammer? That is what your jira implementation looks like.
Also, trello is an Atlasian product, if you are using jira cloud you can just send your shit to a trello board now.
mundo0352321y@fullstackchris jira is not great, it lacks basic Project Management functionality, a lot of projects use it as a kanban board and that is it, trello would be a better fit, hell even notion or Airtable.
Lookup leantime.io that is a fucking great tool, open source too.
Jira is a money machine with ok functionality and over engineered everything, like Salesforce.
All real and good functionality comes with plugins that cost extra.
But, it is not a piece of shit. Generally when people complain about tools is because they don't know how to use them.
I am using JIRA for quite some time now .. only things that bothers me most is .. y **jira** ? Can't they find a better name for such an overengineered piece ?
