  • It can help anyone develop a detailed solution for sharing information, that's way it's an excellent tool for Sharing Inofrmation with the Team.

  • If you want to  start with task management with planning to move to other things like Git, SVN and the like, then Assembla is a good choice.

    It is a complete online team management software – although I couldn’t find the time tracking tool. Perhaps I need to navigate a little more. If you’re looking for just task management, Assembla may be overkill. If, however, you wanted to just start with task management with planning to move to other things like Git, SVN and the like, then Assembla is a good choice.

  • Great for large projects, harder to manage for smaller teams.

    What do you like best?

    Assembla is a very, very robust project management software, replete with a number of features that reward those with a diligent work ethic. This is especially true for SCRUM-based projects or organizations.

    If you are working on a large-scale or long term project, it would be hard to go wrong with Assembla given its vast feature set.

    What do you dislike?

    Assembla's UI can be a bit clunky and it is over-reliant on email notifications. There is a happy medium between Asana, Assembla, and Trello, but I feel like Assembla could benefit the most from an updated UI and UX.

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    If you are working with a smaller team, stick to Trello, Todoist, and Drive. If on a larger project, use Assembla to bolster the resources you have available and keep your project on track.

    I have not used Assembla in about six months, but my time with the project was enjoyable.

    What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

    Assembla has helped myself and multiple teams go from conception to completion on a couple of game projects. The built-in task management, easy-to-understand timelines, and integration with major web services allowed us to effectively communicate our workflow.

    Assembla, interesting but could use some work

    What do you like best?

    The cardwall and milestones are easier to immediately set up than other tools. I like being able to invite clients into our team groups for reviewing tickets. And having it SAAS, I can be anywhere to login and work.

    What do you dislike?

    The lack of cross project tools is painful. I am having to work with a friend to develop our own tools interacting with your APIs to determine hour allocation for projects, developers, qa, across all projects with a usage of hours determined as tickets complete. The generated reports are also not configurable which is also painful. We are having to run filtered CSV exports from the ticket views then run a report and use excel to mash them together for any breadth of insight, per week, per 15 projects. Let me tell you, that is painful.

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    While this is not the powerhouse of Jira or Target Process, it takes far less ramp up time to get started and work. The integration with Git repos is fantastic. Associating tickets to work, cardwalls for milestones, and management of teams with a wiki for further info are all great out of the box features. While I am still digging into the features, expanding our usage of the tools, I am confident this software can help any dev team striving for ease of process and adoption for their engineering teams.

    What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

    Hour allocation per dev per client project. Milestone releases for agile process. Better process and automation.

    Assembla

    What do you like best?

    I like the visual flexibility of Assembla. Whether you have teams that are strictly following Scrum/Agile processes or just want a better, more visual way to track their progress, Assembla makes it easy. The email alerts about ticket updates are so super helpful for me, personally, but I know co-workers here who like the fact that you can also turn those off ;)

    What do you dislike?

    Even though I said I like the visual flexibility of Assembla, I do wish there was a little bit more flexibility or ability to customize some of the drop downs when creating the set up for a ticket

    What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

    We have lots of internal tools that need maintenance due to the nature of the data we use, and Assembla makes it easy for people to submit maintenance requests, feature requests, and bugs, and also makes it easy for our Product Owners and Developers to see what's priority and what everyone is working on.

  • The Assembla.com site is recommended to anyone who needs the tools required to manage a software project from start to finish. The site provides all the tools necessary to carry a project from initial development through to completion. For those users who just need a software repository, the service is free. For those who need a complete project management solution, the cost is very reasonable.
