Seamless Jira Integration
Our team recently transitioned from a free tool to Planning Poker by Lizard Brain – and we love it! The app integrates seamlessly with Jira. It's simple to use out of the box, but also comes with plenty of options to customize. The customer service team is amazing. Very fast response times and they even pushed out a fast fix for a small bug we found.
The app is great, but the most outstanding is the support. I had an issue, got a quick answer and then was told that a change had to be implemented to fix the issue and that it would be raised with the developers. Within 2 days, I was informed that the issue was fixed. I will be sharing my experience in our team as an example of great service.
This tool has greatly improved our grooming sessions. We have both on-site and off-site team members, and this tool enables us to seamlessly work together in planning. It integrates very well with the stories and allows useful customization. I definitely recommend it.
