About Zoho Sprints

Zoho Sprints is a cloud-based collaborative project planning and tracking solution for agile teams, which offers drag-and-drop planning tools, Scrum boards, timers and timesheets, meeting scheduling, dashboards, reports, and a team activity feed. The software is designed to be used by teams of all sizes managing multiple projects, and offers native apps for iOS and Android.

Sprints includes a drag-and-drop planning center, which allows users to create sprints and backlog items, with user assignments, estimation points, and prioritization. The Scrum board visualizes all work for each sprint, giving all users insight into task progress. Work statuses can be customized, and users can drag-and-drop work items, stories, and bugs into different completion stages. Work items can also be sorted into swimlanes based on priority, story, or estimation points, and sprint activity graphs allow users to track the progress of any ongoing sprint. The dashboard gives users an overview of key project metrics, with a weekly digest of work items and overall completion. A range of reports are generated automatically by Zoho Sprints, including velocity charts, burnup and burndown charts, and cumulative flow diagrams, allowing users to track progress, identify bottlenecks, and adjust goals.

Users can track billable and non-billable hours in the Sprints timesheet, with a global timer which can be started from anywhere within the system. Time for each work item and team member can be logged, and timesheets can be approved with a single click by scrum masters and product owners. Sprints also allows users to schedule meetings, including sprint reviews, retrospectives, and daily stand-ups. Users can set meeting agendas, invite participants, and apply time limits to meetings. Reminders are automatically generated and sent to participants’ activity feeds and emails.

    We decided to use Scrum methodology. Zoho Sprints was able to handle backlog and bug log the way we have been using it. It was available and it worked without a huge learning curve for a short deadline.

    Pros

    I like the customization of features, especially creating card templates and statuses. Custom templates comes in handy when we are importing from another platform like Trello and we want to use the same format. I also like the integration between other platforms including Zoho Projects for Gantt charts. I like that we can add a custom 'Status Type'. I used this feature to add a 'Review' status for code review. I also like the integration with Zoho Projects and Trello. I also liked how I can simply reorder users stories or work items, from sprints or backlog, into different Epics.

    Cons

    I found Epics to be a little confusing. I am curious as to why this is a premium feature. It appears there are many other features I would consider premium. Some of the dashboard items were hard to setup to be useful.

    We have been using Zoho Projects and to our development model, this was a better choice. We switched to Sprints and We love it more than ever. This product has increased the entire team's productivity by a very large extent.

    Pros

    Amazingly user-friendly and fast. Very fast updates and new features. Ideal for startups who work from simplest software applications to most complex one's. Amazing customization options, beautifly laid out with neat UI. Quick support and perfect resolution to queries.

    Cons

    Nothing Specific but we are looking forward to get some friendly features like Cumulative timesheets across the project for a user. Its very annoying to calculate every user's individual project's timesheet to know a month's performance.

    Alternatives Considered

    Jira and Trello

    Reasons for Choosing Zoho Sprints

    Zoho Projects is meant for Waterfall model of software development. We are now into agile model hence we made the switch.

    Best way to Replace Jira and Reduce the cost without even missing Jira.

    Reviewed on 18/7/2022

    It's a final and total replacement of Jira and that's more than enough for us.

    It's a final and total replacement of Jira and that's more than enough for us.

    Pros

    It has everything an agile software development team needs. It coherently works with the onboarding and attendance of employees along with project management, which is a plus. And its less complex and less expensive than Jira, which we previously used.

    Cons

    If they can develop resource management or something of that sort that can provide us at a glance view of who is free in our team even for an hour then that would increase our productivity multifold, not to mention reduce idle time.

    Absolutely horrible. Doesn't integrate well with Zoho Desk, Zoho CRM, or any of the Zoho projects. Horrendous UI. Buggy and glitchy. Run - don't walk - away from this part of Zoho. There are plenty of solid project management/agile management tools out there that offer great value - this would be dead last in ratings.

    Pros

    Zoho One generally has good breadth and value for money. Zoho Sprints should be removed from the Zoho platform. I suppose if you were running a team of yourself, and hated your time but love clicking your mouse and being frustrated, this might be a good choice.

    Cons

    Absolutely unusable. The integrations into the rest of Zoho One's products is barely there. The interface is not intuitive. Buttons are completely in the wrong place. If you asked a UX designer to create a piece of software with the maximum amount of clicks and that forces a user to really slow down and search for how to use the software, they would struggle to design Zoho Sprints.

    We are still growing around it, learning how to implement it in a proper way, but we are feeling very satisfied with the starting results.

    Pros

    How easy it is to move your team from another solution to this one, after a proper scrum training and with the online training available.

    Cons

    We are currently using Zoho Projects coming from a cascade methodology, we wrote to Zoho's customer service to check if there was a way to migrate our projects data to Zoho Sprints but we have not received any answer yet.
