    The integration with Jira really sucks. I wasted half a day trying to get this to work and got absolutely nowhere. Save yourself a lot of frustration and try another solution.

    We are currently implementing JIRA as new project management and task tracking tool. I have implemented BigGantt as we needed a consolidated view on tasks and timing. It turned out to be a very versatile and powerful add on to JIRA. Until now this is exactly what we needed as we were coming from other Gantt-Tools without a clean integration to JIRA. Super happy. By the way I had an issue with permission schemes and contacted their (BigGantt) support. Very positive surprise: responsive, to the point, committed. Thanks again!

    Hello Roland,

    You have our deepest appreciation for sharing such positive review! We are happy that our app becomes more and more functional from version to version. We hope that our PPM solutions with BigGantt as one of our core plugins, will only provide the best possible experience to our customers.

    Once again, thank you very much for sharing the feedback.

    Kind Regards,

    SoftwarePlant Support Team

    This app has prooved to be a must have for our existing Jira Projects. We managed to get all the projects we needed on a Gantt perspective as we wanted. Even though the solution is still not perfect (but in the other hand, what software solution is), we highly value the Support Team inn always being able to solve what we sometimes misunderstand for bugs and help us find for the solutions and correct way to setup all this different features. Keep up the good work. All the best, Gianluca

    Hello Gianluca,

    Thank you so much for your feedback and for this review! It is truly important to us to know that BigGantt for Jira Cloud can be as useful to our customers as the Server version is, despite the fact it might still be missing a couple of features of its predecessor. Though, as you mentioned nothing in this world is perfect (especially software solutions), we can assure you that we do everything that's in our might to satisfy our clients' needs and this year will bring more functionalities and modules and at some point one will be unable to tell a difference between BigGantt Cloud and Server.

    Whenever in need of assistance, remember that you are always more than welcome to drop us an e-mail or create a ticket via ServiceDesk.

    Once again many thanks!

    Best Regards,

    With every new version we have a new problem that pops up. The app is really not stable: - A lots of errors - Projects nog loading - Bugs - And the performance is really worse. It takes sometimes up to one minute before a project is shown. Support is also not very good. After more than one month still no answer/solution on our performance problems.

    Greetings Dimitri,

    Thank you for the review and your feedback.

    We do understand that the Cloud version of BigGantt might have not been fully functional and caused issues to some of our clients during part of February and March. You and other customers have our sincerest apologies for this.

    These days, our add-on introduces some additional functionalities, is much more stable and our Support Team's response time has also improved drastically since then. We understand this may not be any excuse, yet the delay was indeed caused by the ongoing issues with our Cloud service.

    If you still require an assistance, would like to learn more about the BigGantt, please contact us via our ServiceDesk. Our Support Team will be more than happy to assist you.

    Kind Regards,

    SoftwarePlant Team

    I have been using for about 4 months now and it is very frustrating. The layout is not the greatest, horizontal and vertical scrolling is difficult and it is not very intuitive at all. It is overly complicated with poor documentation that does not match what you see. It does not seemed to have matured over time from when it was initially created and they do not seem to listen to customer feedback. I hate not being able to pick up the phone to call customer service but as it is they do respond. That is the best thing I can say about it. If I had more time to have researched possibly I may have gone with something different. 1.5/4

    I thank Chris for his comments regarding his experience of BigGantt. Such feedback is both useful for feature development and improvements to user experience. BigGantt, as are all the apps comprising the SoftwarePlant suite of PPM solutions, is constantly being developed and enhanced, driven exclusively by feature requests and user demands for greater functionality. BigGantt has been the focus of a raft of enhancements soon to be released including:

    • real-time aggregation of values (now calculated on-the-fly),
    • significantly improved re-sync time
    • UI improvements

    We will continue to develop BigGantt in line with user demands and expectations, so please expect greater performance in further releases. I am pleased to see that Chris did receive responses from our Support team. We promise to respond to inquiries within 48 hours, although most are dealt with far sooner. Such is the necessity to effectively log and track support requests, we are unable to provide telephone support, as is standard industry practice of many software solution vendors.SoftwarePlant is an active and engaged member of the Atlassian Community. We positively encourage and seek out feedback on the functionality of all our plugins from our users, particularly via our Atlassian Partners and global network of PPM solution providers. It is this feedback that provides the feedstock for our development planning activities. We would love to hear from anyone who has ideas about new features or on how they would like to see BigGantt improved in future releases.

    Very responsive support team. We had to renew our trial period and they were kind enough to accomodate us with this. I was amazed that everything was set after 5 minutes of my initial request!

    I started using the trial version of this plugin this week. The UI is sleek and easy to understand. Also the documentation is massive, and there is even a youtube video to give you a good idea of how the tool is used. However, I started having problems when exporting the Gantt chart to a PDF format. I submitted a support ticket and got a response with clear instructions within an hour! I am impressed by the quick response and the capabilities of the tool. I recommend this tool to anyone who likes Gantt Charts.

    Hello, we just started a major ROLLOUT for our IT ROADMAP PROJECTS (Serveur/2000 Users) and would like to thank SoftwarePlant support team. It wasn't easy for us due to the big change for our project leaders; of course we had issues but with the help of the support we could manage the resolution without end-users impact. Thank you:)

    It is quite unstable and even doing basic stuff is often a problem. If you report a bug answer can be something like this: "It happens sometimes just do it manually" - well yeah do it manually - hundreds of issues... Also asking to provide full administration rights to their email is not something what you will be wiling to do...

    Greetings Dusan,

    Thank you for the review. We do realize that some issues with the Cloud version of the plugin might have caused a user to encounter few problems, especially in its first months after the official release. And yes, in some cases a manual troubleshooting was required, though we are trying to implement hot-fixes to all of our plugins as often as possible.

    We do not request administrative rights to anyone's e-mail. In most cases we offer a WebEx troubleshooting session with screen sharing, where user reproduces the issue and one or two of SoftwarePlant team members guides them through the plugin set-up in order to resolve that specific issue. In some cases, when the above is not possible, customers offer a creation of a JIRA account with administrative rights to their environment in order to test, reproduce and fix some issues, though this usually takes legal forms like NDA.

    Please let us know if the issue you've struggled with still persists or maybe if it was fixed with the later releases of the BigGantt.

    Kind Regards,

    SoftwarePlant

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does cloud app pricing work?

    Cloud pricing is subscription based. You are eligible for support and automatic version updates as long as your subscription is active.

    When your subscription renews each month, you are automatically billed for host products and apps based on the number of users in your instance.

    If app pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my cloud pricing?

    Apps are billed based on the number of users in your host product. Jira Cloud apps are priced based on the maximum users of the Jira products on your instance. For example, if you have Jira Software (50 users) and Jira Service Desk (10 agents) on the same instance, you pay the 50-user price for apps.Note: While this app has features specific to Jira Service Desk, the app is technically available across the whole Jira instance. Therefore the above guidelines for licensing across maximum users still apply.

    The pricing structure for cloud products and apps is as follows:

    • Monthly subscriptions with up to 10 host product users are billed at a flat rate price.
    • Monthly subscriptions with more than 10 users are billed per user, starting at the first user.
    • Monthly subscriptions with more than 100 users are billed per user. The table above provides example pricing at various user levels.
    • If per-user pricing is not yet available for this app, please contact the vendor for further information.

    If you've opted for annual billing for your host product, apps are also billed annually at a discount (12 months for the price of 10).

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses?

    Academic, community and open source licenses are not available for cloud apps.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For cloud apps, you cannot extend your free evaluation period. All cloud apps are immediately subscribed by a user, and we provide a free evaluation period. This is a minimum of 30 days and ends on the second billing cycle after you first subscribe to the app.

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does server app pricing work?

    Server products and apps are hosted on your servers. Licenses are perpetual and the purchase price include 12 months of maintenance (support and version updates).

    You can renew maintenance after 12 months at 50% of the current purchase price. You can upgrade the tier of your host product and app licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    If app pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my server pricing?

    Apps are billed based on the number of users in your host product. For Jira Server 7.0 or later, the app tier should match the maximum tier of the licensed Jira products on your instance. For example, if you're running Jira Software (50 users) and Jira Service Desk (10 agents) on the same instance, you should purchase the 50-user tier for apps. For versions of Jira Server prior to 7.0, the app tier should match the licensed user tier for Jira. Even if fewer users want to use the app than your Jira license, the two licenses should match exactly.Note: While this app has features specific to Jira Service Desk, the app is technically available across the whole Jira instance. Therefore the above guidelines for the license tier still apply.

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses?

    For server apps, purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host product. Server apps are always free for community and open-source licenses.

    For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For server apps, you can extend your app trial up to 5 times - in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Try it free and you'll be directed to generate a new license. Paste this license key into the app listing in UPM from your Atlassian host product, and you're all set.

    How can I buy apps for my legacy Jira Server or Confluence Server license?

    If you own a legacy Jira Server Unlimited (100+ users) or Confluence Server Unlimited (2000+ users) license purchased in 2012 or earlier, legacy app pricing is no longer available. You have two options for app purchasing:

    • Purchase the app at the non-legacy Unlimited (10000+ users) tier.
    • Renew your Jira or Confluence license at a non-legacy tier, then purchase the app at the same tier.
