ZenHub Workspaces Empowers Software Development Teams to Create Different Workflows Using the Same GitHub Repository

Evolves “One View Fits All” Software Project Management into Separate, Customized Team Environments

​ZenHub, the most popular project management tool among teams using GitHub, announced ZenHub Workspaces, a new feature that allows every team in large, complex organizations to work in the way that fits their specific needs, tasks and styles. Workspaces evolves the current “one view fits all” approach to development teams and stakeholders by creating separate, customized team environments focused on their specific requirements and jobs to be done.

ZenHub Workspaces enables a GitHub repository (repo) to live in multiple workspaces at the same time. Now, developers and stakeholders can see and work with only what is relevant and helpful to them without the confusion and complexity of non-applicable pipelines and superfluous information. Each team can maintain its own work style, such as Scrum or Kanban, without being forced into the preferred style of another team. Workspaces allow teams with the same codebase or repo (but different workflows) to work concurrently by creating separate pipeline structures for the same set of GitHub Issues.

“Large, complex projects often involve multiple teams that contribute to the same repos in GitHub. Previously, ZenHub forced teams to have to agree on a unified way of working, which isn’t always practical,” said Aaron Upright, ZenHub executive and co-founder. “ZenHub Workspaces gives these same teams the ability to accommodate the many cooks in the software development ‘kitchen’ with separate, customized team environments.”

ZenHub Workspaces gives software teams the flexibility to optimize their individual workflows without impacting the experience of other development teams or collaborators across the business. By personalizing an individual workspace, a particular functional team defines and only sees what workflow steps are meaningful to them. ZenHub Workspaces puts an end to large, monolithic software development workflows and breaks processes down into detailed contextual pipelines for each stakeholder.

The streamlined context and simplicity eases review of software project progress for stakeholders outside of the development team. It also enables better collaboration with distributed teams, third parties, contractors and off-shore teams.

ZenHub transforms GitHub into a fully featured project management platform for agile development, enabling comprehensive planning, management, collaboration, tracking, prioritization and reporting. Rather than forcing teams to leave GitHub and jump into another tool—resulting in double work, informational silos, and missed updates—ZenHub integrates directly into GitHub’s UI. ZenHub eliminates wasted time from context switching while ensuring greater levels of accuracy with information that is always up-to-date. Since task boards, task tracking and reports are fueled by GitHub Issues and Pull Requests and based on actual code, developers and stakeholders are always working from the most up-to-date data possible rather than manually recreated or estimated details.
