Must be how it was implemented. We use it with minimal issues.


Some of it is the user experience, for example, how the styling toolbar scrolls up, up, and away when writing a comment on a ticket.

Other things are how unintuitive (though some may disagree) it is to do things. I spent 30 minutes googling and looking for how to create an epic. You can't just create an epic in the "assign epic" dialog. Oh look, it's really stupidly simple -- go to the Roadmap and just add it there. Wow, that's intuitive.

I often work on things outside of the sprint -- I want to see all the things on my board, not just the damn sprint.

I'd like to review tickets I've completed so I can revisit my notes for similar issues. Seems like an impossible task. I keep separate notes. Sigh | :sigh:

And why can't I assign a ticket to two or more people? I get the idea that the issue should be specific enough for the person, but seriously, don't force me into the JIRA way of thinking -- there are times I want a general issue to start with, assigned to the people that are going to be involved, and maybe if they need further guidance, I'll break it out into specific issues for each person.

The list goes on...

[edit] I want a status that is more flexible, like "waiting for customer to reply". Possibly configurable, but I can't find it in the settings. They could make it easier with a right-click or gear icon[/edit]
