Overview

Pivotal Tracker is an easy to use, agile project management tool that brings focused collaboration to software development teams. Built by Pivotal Labs, it embodies proven agile methods, based on experience from hundreds of successful large scale projects.

Every team member shares the same, real-time view of what's going on with each project, and what needs to be done next. It lets product owners know in intimate detail what is going on, without having to ask, and lets developers spend time on work, instead of reporting the work.

The agile, iterative workflow and story management in Pivotal Tracker embodies years of experience by Pivotal Labs on real world client projects, including many name brand companies that have used Tracker to excel.

Get even more agile by taking advantage of the free Tracker application on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, regardless of where you are.

Every story is within reach with Tracker's easy to use full text search, with support for more powerful structured queries when you need them.

Keep an eye on your project with Tracker's built-in charts, including release burn-down, iteration burn-up, story type breakdown, and historical velocity.

Imagine if everyone on the team knew what the highest priority thing to do was, what one thing they could do next that would move the company forward? Tracker facilitates that communication, by letting developers focus on what's next, without losing sight of the big picture, which is what is important.

Tracker drives conversation from it's workflow transparency to help your team work better and faster. Story comments allow each story to evolve based on feedback and discussion.

Some have said that Tracker turns work and project management into a game. Keep working to improve your velocity by honing your the way you work, identifying problems through the transparency provided by Tracker. As your team collaborates and takes stories through their life cycle, watch Tracker’s colors come to life as your vision for your product crystallizes.

Tracker also has an open API, which already is integrated with many popular third party tools.

Pivotal Tracker is the agile project management tool of choice for over 240,000 users across thousands of companies, from large public companies to fast growing startups, and open source development teams.

Brilliant for managing Kanban style projects

Rahul Singh, Java Software Engineer at MetaPack6th of June, 2014 03:41

We have used Pivotal Tracker to track the progress of each user story, bug, feature, and epic and we have found that it has focused the team into delivering high quality software.

Easy-to-use Tracking Tool

Diane15th of November, 2012 11:28

Pivotal Tracker is great for helping organize my tasks and projects. I can see what projects I have started on, what projects I could start, and sub-tasks for each of them.

Great Tool, easy to use

Paul9th of November, 2012 11:01

We use Pivotal Tracker for our managers to organize and check the work done by their team. In our way of doing each task or project has to be in Pivotal Tracker to keep a trace of it. Employees can decompose their project in several tasks and our managers can check at every moment what has been done and what is still to be done. It is a great tool to make sure everyone is going forward and delivering on what they commited. I recommend it even to manage small teams of 2-3 people

Just makes tracking easy.

Thiru3rd of October, 2012 01:47

We use it in our daily work. Managing and monitoring task within different teams is just at ease.

Getting more Agile every day

Louis30th of January, 2012 09:38

I was not particularly impressed when I first discovered Pivotal Tracker... yet another Agile Project Management tool. After couple of days, Pivotal unveiled many powerful features behind it's appearance of simplicity. After 2 months of use I have to say it's far more efficient than any bug tracking and costly Projects Management tools I ever got to use. We needed an Agile PM tool fully integrated to Google Apps and that wouldn't overwhelm the team. The Drag&drop interface allows us to manage priorities effortless and keep focus on our daily tasks. The User Interface is eye-candy, very responsive and provides good lisibility. Pivotal tracker was quickly integrated to the daiy workflow by all team members and boosted the productivity. As a closing comment, Pivotal tracker is straight-to-the point, light, effective and perfectly serves the purpose of building good software faster.

Fantastic project management app!

viktors27th of January, 2012 09:14

I've been using various tools (BugZilla, Trac, Todoist) for keeping lists of bugs/new features for web development projects, and Pivotal Tracker is the most impressive one, by far. The coolest feature is that you can update stories during the meeting, and everybody will see updates in real time. Ability to attach a Google Doc is a life-saver - it keeps stories clean, and allows to plan things in a truly collaborative way. There are also third-party plugins for git and github integration, although I haven't tried them yet.

Efficient Agile Management tool
