Breakdown of core features
ZenHub Workflow Automation instantly syncs the project whenever GitHub issues are updated and completed. It eliminates bottlenecks, tedious tasks, and superfluous status check-ins. In addition, it lets users automate the repetitive tasks from the team’s workflow to save time and focus. Organizations can remove meetings to boost efficiency and make the most of the employees’ time.
The Reporting feature tracks work in GitHub to provide the entire team with real-time reports. Users can make estimates based on historical data, manage scope changes across long-term projects, and identify bottlenecks in the pipeline before they become a problem.
ZenHub Roadmaps gives every company stakeholder an accurate view of the progress of projects. From developers to the executive team, everyone can understand how their efforts contribute to a project’s success. The software fixes the disconnect between the work in GitHub and the roadmap reflecting the team’s progress.
Teams can manage work in ZenHub through Boards. Using the project’s GitHub issues, users can define a workspace, move issues between pipelines, and prioritize the work that matters most. Teams can also group multiple issues into a single epic for better planning and tracking.
With ZenHub Boards, users can combine multiple GitHub repositories into one workspace and workflow. Different teams can use the same repositories across multiple Boards.
