@eiskis pretty neat Jerry. Defibrillator taking it for a spin.
Nice, is there a Kanban board also for sprints?

@haroon Hi! Right now ProductBeat works best for continuous flow, but if you do sprints I'd recommend planning your next sprint under "Ready for development", and using milestones to mark each sprint in the backlog. We see so many issues with the traditional column layout in the wild that we're probably not introducing it, even though of course it's something many users are used to right now. For releasing, we recommend rolling releases, and using subtasks to plan release activities per story. Once you release a story, your release timeline will reflect the releases as your users experienced them (we're adding proper versioning for mobile apps later). We also intro docs to using milestones and making development plans here: - let us know how it works, schedule a demo or jump over to our support chat and we're happy to show you the ropes :)
I'm in the market for a alternative to Jira and Portfolio, but I think we really enjoy the "rhythm" of sprints, and would like that our tools support our process. We also have a separation between done and released for our ios+Android team. We also estimate the complexity of features, which is really handy for planning out the next weeks and months.

@hauthorn That's good feedback, thanks! When it comes to estimates, we're still working on both manual and automated solution for estimation and planning. For sprints, we don't have explicit support yet, but especially if you release continuously then our milestones might work well for you. Totally understand it might not be quite there yet for you guys, but would appreciate the feedback over our support chat if you decide to try it out.
@hauthorn We use and love ZenHub. They have a slick way of managing milestones, epics, releases. Simple and powerful reporting. It's also great because everything lives in GitHub and you can connect stories to PRs. So far my favorite alternative.
This looks 🔥 planning on giving this a spin!
