What is Backlog?

Backlog is a project management software exclusively designed for all the teams involved in software development: Development, Marketing, Design, IT and Production. It is a cloud-hosted platform with an on-premise option.

As an all-in-one project management solution, Backlog aims to improve collaboration, coordination, and communication between developers and non-technical team members by taking care of the essential aspects—tracking of projects, issue monitoring, and task management.  It enables users to organize tasks in one place and assign them to other teams.

Tracking the overall progress of a project across teams and sending of feedback are also made easier. Gantt, Burndown charts, and Git not only offer greater visibility of the projects but also improve productivity with Gantt and Burndown automatically generating progress reports that have all the details necessary to keep project managers on top of ongoing projects. With Git also included, development team members can create their own repositories on the Backlog system.

Overview of Backlog benefits

While tracking the progress of a project is one of the primary features of Backlog, it also hosts other features and functions that you can utilize to your full advantage:

Task Management

Keep an organized project workflow by creating task hierarchy. The project tracking software not only has the capability of splitting up projects into main tasks but also creating subtasks within a project. Subtasks can be divided among team members and create checklists to keep track of start and due dates, progress status and other updates, project milestones, categories, and other custom fields.

As an example, if the teams are working on a task about creating an updated budget planner feature for a website, this task can be split into subtasks. Thus, a member of the design team will be in charge of creating the new User Interface design (UI) for the budget planner feature. A development team member will implement and test the UI design, and the subtask for a marketing team member can be the writing of release blog and email for such a feature.

As subtasks are assigned to team members, users can easily track the progress of their entire project. They can set deadlines and notify the team members for any updates on their tasks. Through the aid of  Gantt Charts, users will be able to see the statuses of the tasks and task owners, all in one place.
