More Adaptavist Test Management for Jira Pros →

"The most valuable feature is the backlog.""The most valuable feature from my point of view is project management, which includes user stories as well as task management.""The traceability is valuable. While managing the workflows, it was always nice to have that traceability from requirements and all the way through design. It integrates with Microsoft Test Manager, and you can have everything that is related to a requirement attached to it.""Some of the valuable features are version control and the ability to create different collections in terms of segregating the authorization for teams who connect to small projects.""Good branching and labelling features.""It's is a very stable solution.""The most valuable features are test case writing and bug tracking.""As far as queries are concerned, creating, grading, or customizing the queries as a primary requirement is very easy to do."

Cons
"Lacking visual gadgets that go on a dashboard, pie charts, bar charts and histograms."

More Adaptavist Test Management for Jira Cons →

"The reporting functionality is something that they should work on.""They should have design patterns in TFS for the development team, and design patterns for the QA.""There should be management of the project built-in.""The program and portfolio planning facility can be improved.""Currently, we are looking for a solution with which we can incorporate third-party development sites or third-party project teams into the system. Because it is on-premise, it is a bit problematic because we need to have a VPN or something else in the system. A cloud-based solution would be better for us, and that's what we are looking for. Our biggest problem is the external connection, which, of course, is limited by our own IT. It would be good to have some kind of publishing service for this external connection. It might be there, and it might be that our IT is making it impossible for us. Its template editor could be easier to use. Currently, customizing the project templates according to your needs requires some work.""The user interface could be improved to make it simpler and increase usability.""I would like to see the reporting features expanded so that I can see details on the users connected to all of the projects.""Integration from Visual Studio could be improved."
