Steve Bargelt Oooooo biker!

Yes I’ve been evaluating agile project tracking apps / solutions. Kind of painful to tell the truth. One major problem I have is that my team is not truly XP or Scrum – we are pretty agile but we do (for various regulatory purposes) insert non-agile principles into our processes. I often joke that we are more nimble than agile. I think&

Hi Steve! Of course we're listening to what our users have to say - we want to make our free product better at every opportunity. I'll pass along your comments to our engineers and see what we can do about that in the next release. Stay tuned for updates and let me know if you have any more questions about tools or Scrum/Agile in general.

In the meantime, best of luck with your projects. Keep us in the loop with how things are going and what we can do better with ScrumWorks.

I don't understand why you feel ScrumWorks is difficult to use. As someone who recently started using it, I find it quite simple, at least for someone who knows the Scrum principles.

I'm glad it is working well for you. In my opinion though Scrumworks certainly isn't the "simplest thing that could possibly work" - I'm currently using Clay VerValen's Excel spreadsheet (that I found at the URL above). Simple. More importantly it is extremely portable -- I use FolderShare to stay in sync between home, work, laptop, desktop, dev workstation.

I just stumbled upon this old thread and wanted to add that I'm pretty sure installing into directories with spaces (like "Program Files" for MS-Windows fans) is supported now. This was an issue with the Unix-oriented JBoss application server we bundle.

We've also added a much simpler UI, emulating a physical taskboard.

As a multi-user, client/server application, ScrumWorks may seem more complicated than an Excel spreadsheet ... at first.
