How can I migrate from Jira?

With Freshrelease 1-click custom import you can move all your data from Jira in a jiffy.

Can I use freshrelease for free?

Yes. Freshrelease comes with a free plan called Starter. What do you get in the free plan?

1. You can add up to 10 users to the account.

2. Run up to 10 projects.

3. Maintain up to 5000 test cases.

4. You get all the features. Yes, you read that right :)

If you don't like what Freshrelease has to offer, you can choose to part ways with us but we'd be sad to see you go. If you think we've missed out on a critical feature, let us know and we'll see what we can do.

What happens when the trial ends?

Once your trial expires, you need to buy a paid plan if you have more than 10 users or 10 projects. You can also choose the free plan if you don't plan to run more than 10 projects or add more than 10 users to your account. The free plan gives you all the features but has a cap on the number of users, projects and test cases.

Can freshrelease be used for issue tracking?

Yes, freshrelease has full-blown issue tracking capabilities. There is a default item type called "Bug" which you can use for this. You can also customize the statuses, workflow and fields for issues. Freshrelease also allows you to filter issues by various properties and create kanban boards from the saved filters.

Does freshrelease support webhooks?

Yes, freshrelease support webhooks via workflow configurations. You can trigger a webhook to an external system whenever users update the status of an item. We are also working a generic webhook capability that works based on various other events and not just item status updates.
