User Experience 

 

 

 

 

 

Easy

Pretty intuitive except I dont get the whole folders concept -is a folder==project?

 

 

 

 

Supports Multiple Projects 

Yes

 

 

 

 

 

Yes, I think that's a project folder

I think there are email alerts but its not obvious how to turn them on

Yes. Does estimations which seem confusing

Online Help

 

 

 

 

 

 

User Guide and Forums. I would prefer a search field

 

 

 

 
Assign one task to multiple people             No. We have sprint planning meetings, tasking, etc. and having to assign this task to each dev sucks        
Filters             Lots and lots.  But don't see custom filters        
Comments, files, etc. Yes           Yes        
Customizable Views Yes. Can choose which column headings, etc.           No
