Herogami is the Agile project management tool of choice for teams around the world collaborating on a shared, prioritized backlog.
It scales to handle both small and very large portfolios of projects and delivers a foundation of the best Agile practices.
Herogami supports the process but does not force the process. Teams tailor Agile tactics to their own habits and attitude. Herogami avoids stringent workflows and facilitates clear and democratic access to project information.
The heart and soul of Herogami is to keep things simple and visually relaxing to create a sense of place and help you focus at your best when managing complex scenarios and interdependent features.
Herogami is not about micro-management and control. No Gantts here or waterfall crap like that. Herogami is about people growing projects and products in subsequent iterations and enjoying the beautiful journey of building software together.

Quickly capture user stories with Herogami unique quick forms and then use extended forms to expand their specifications and details. Quick forms ensure that hundreds of stories are entered in a few hours, even from your tablet, and made available to everyone.
Stories can be enriched with in-depth descriptions, pictures, attachments and comments to make sure your development team has all the information required to implement them as expected.
A special section in each story reports the test cases needed for validation. Estimates are facilitated by story points, pomodoros and other estimation techniques. When stories are particularly complex, it becomes practical to subdivide them into sub-tasks.
The workflow of each project can be customized to the slightest deta and of course you can control the workload along your workflow by applying WIP Limits at every phase in order to avoid over-allocating the sprint.
Issues are the unwanted byproduct of any software development process, Herogami grants you the tools and flexibility to track them effectively.
Analyze issues with engaging visual metaphors such as interactive kanban boards as well as traditional list-based views.
Recording issues in Herogami is fast thanks to the quick input form or can get super-detailed with its extended forms.
Each issue can be documented with attachments such as screenshots or other documents. Priority marks, color tags and assignee are always visible.
Herogami provides a wide choice of data views to let you scale your perspective on tasks and activities depending on the amount of information you are managing.
Kanban boards provide an immediate overview of the work status and are very effective in tracking activities within a sprint because the number of cards is generally limited.
The swimlanes option in Kanbans highlights tasks at work based on different attributes such as assignees, colors, system components and more. Grooming your backlog is a breeze when your stories and issues are arranged on a Lighbox view.
All views are instantly exportable in CSV format to share information outside of Herogami, for spreadsheet processing and sending status reports to customers or third parties.
The ability to upload pictures, diagrams and other documents or media is perfect for sharing consolidated information with all team members quickly.
Projects, though, accumulated in a myriad of notes, documents, and other clutter. Well, smile: there's an integrated Wiki in every project.

stories over one or more days as well as issues resolution windows.

On the right, the collapsible sidebar allows you to filter events by color and type, highlighting your team's current activities, meetings or other significant events.
There's even an Agenda view if you prefer to view the project calendar as a list of events that can be vertically scrolled.
