LeanKit Use Cases and Deployment ScopeLeanKit is being used by a single department of specialists. It is presented to the entire organization to show progress on existing, upcoming and past projects. LeanKit is being used to provide visibility into the progress of projects being handled by specialists that are managed by project managers. It provides a view of resources available and helps to forecast project deadlines for client managers.
Pros : LeanKit is easily updated by imports from our timekeeping tool. This provides an easy translation of content between the two platforms.LeanKit allows tasks to be assigned to different users and uses color coordination to easily show project types and user who is responsible.LeanKit has great filter options so each user is able to easily manage their tasks without being distracted by items that are not important to them.LeanKit is very flexible, allowing the team to create boards that fit their e
Cons : LeanKit could offer better integrations with other softwares we use in our business to reduce manual duplication.

We have been using LeanKit for more than three years at LateRooms. What started as a tool that was used by our product teams to track development work and releases has also been adopted by other teams within the business, for example I use the software to track procurement projects and the HR team use it to track the recruitment process.
Pros : Ease of use Integration with 3rd party apps (ZenDesk, Atlassian)
I can't say enough good things about Leankit. Only issue was that it took me an hour to grasp the UI with splitting horizontal & vertical swimlanes. However, once I had that down, I saw the power of being able to visually represent what I wanted to with the tool. Granted, I'm not using it for kanban per say, I'm using it for customer/prospect management primarily. In a single pane of glass, I was able to represented 30 different customers/prospects, where these customers stood relative to our core values & categories for developing the market. I know this is not software development... pivoting a bit here... Big proponent of this tool. Glad my company forced it upon me because it's a huge improvement over the rather simple, but go to tool, Trello. Trello still has its place but it seems arcane all of a sudden.
Pros : + Intuitive interface once you get used to it. + Very flexible + Flood your favorite problem children with email tasks until they scream (or create a spam filter) + Multiple swimlanes & sublanes are mind blowing. Seriously.... Experiment!
Cons : - Learning curve (but this is not that big of a deal.. trust me..) - tags are not selectable
This application allows you to move from a chaotic approach to customer service to an organised one. Links to JIRA as well so it actually compliments rather than replaces it.

What do you like best?
What do you like best?
Most of the tools I've used to run a kanban or scrum board are just visual diagramming tools. But LeanKit is optimized for Kanban and provides a solid user experience.
What do you dislike?
The pricing is too high for this type of tool.
