Track the information your Scrum team needs
Axosoft's core tracking features help you record and manage key details.
Collect the right details
Fully customizable and flexible field templates make it easy to gather important information about your backlog items, such as estimates, repro steps, associated customers, and much, much more. You can develop different templates for each project, or by workflow step, and lock down individual data fields by user role.
Populate your backlog quickly
Axosoft's keyboard shortcuts and fast, intuitive interface make adding new items, projects, releases, users, teams, and more incredibly easy and quick. It's just one part of our mission to get you back to coding as soon as possible.
Create unlimited projects
You can create as many projects in Axosoft as you need to organize your development, as well as subprojects and epics to break things down. Keep things more straightforward for your development team by enforcing access privileges to projects by user role.
Easily plan releases and sprints
Break down your backlog and organize user stories into short iterations.
Iterate with ease
We make it easy to take your product backlog and divide it into actionable versions, releases, and sprints. Axosoft's drag and drop interface enables you to quickly add user stories to those releases and sprints.
Try giving Axosoft Scrum's stack ranking mode a spin before you begin filling up releases. This special workspace view allows key users to rank backlog items as needed, and revisit this ranking order later even after you've set releases up.
Know your development limits
By defining the estimated amount of time it will take to finish items, you can start seeing how long a given sprint will take as you build it out. Our capacity indicators can help set limits so you're not assigning too much work to the sprint.
Group users into teams
You can't get anything done in those releases without team members! Add users to Axosoft and organize them into teams. Backlog items can be associated with either individual users or entire teams. You can create detailed team hierarchies and add specific users to multiple teams.
Define and visualize your process
Built with Kanban and automation goodness to ensure development is on the right track.
Master the art of Kanban
Our Card View mode takes your backlog, release, or sprint and converts that list into a fully interactive card board. Move individual user stories through workflow steps with drag and drop, enforce work-in-process (WIP) limits, and highlight the key details you need to see on your backlog items.
Powerful automation tools
Axosoft's flexible workflow options help you adapt your current development process to the tool. Create workflow steps and drag and drop them in the order you need. You can have different workflows for both user stories and defects, and unique workflows for each project.
Advanced triggers and actions
You can fully customize each workflow step as needed: change fields or field templates, enforce WIP limits, send notifications, control workflow step changes by user role, and much more.
Collaborate and ship software on time
Turn your team's work logs into valuable progress analysis.
The Daily Scrum
As the #1 Scrum software, we're committed to making all aspects of Scrum development easier and more fruitful. To that end, we've even improved your team's daily standups. Our signature Daily Scrum mode organizes all the work information you need everyday, to help team members discuss their progress, solve any issues, and see how they'll meet their goals.
Intelligent burndown charts
The burndown chart found in the Daily Scrum mode, dashboards, and above your backlog workspace helps illustrate your team's progress in a given release, measuring velocity and projecting an approximate ship date. It's essential stuff.
Track estimates and work logs
Axosoft offers a number of ways to help collect the work log data needed for all of its analysis tools. Users can manually log work or be prompted to do so on workflow step change. You can also log work with source control commits, or with stopwatch addons.
Our beautiful, full configurable management dashboards offer a bird's eye view of development. With widgets for burndown charts, ship dates, team velocities, and other key metrics, Axosoft's dashboards leave no stone unturned in project visibility and analysis.
