Agile project management tool for developers

4.38/5 (73 reviews)

Pivotal Tracker 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.

Smooth Agile Tool for Startups

Review Source: Software Advice

I liked that the contents of the dashboard is customizable for every member of the team who all had different roles. For instance, as a web developer I constantly kept my eyes on "My Work", "Current", and "BackLog" as I liked to track my tasks as well as what others in the team had in progress. On the other hand, the Project Manager had "Charts" and "Epics" opened as he wanted to track the velocity of the team. Aside from the customizable element, the dashboard was easy to edit as changes to an existing story as well as creating new ones could be accomplished in one tab/window without moving onto a new page. Because everything could be tracked with a one page view, it provided a good summary of what everyone was up to as well as nice way to track individual tasks.

Tracker is great value for the cost! Having visibility into which task is next in the queue and easily adjusting task priority when demands change is really helpful. The description and comment sections are great to keep topics and discussions related to specific tasks all in one place. Being able to use markdown to format text is also really helpful and provides a lot of flexibility. I've been using Tracker for over 2 years now, and it has been great to see the product evolve. There are always new and thoughtful updates to the software which are both helpful and don't require you to relearn features or re-acclimate yourself to the tool. Outside of the tool itself, the Tracker community and blog are great resources for best practices as well as learning about how other organizations are leveraging this tool.

Easy to Use for Small and Large Scale Projects!

Pivotal Tracker is very easy to use, but you are able to get granular with projects if you need to. Basically, it works for small scale and large scale projects. The software is very organized which contributes to its ease of use. If you manage or create multiple projects with the same structure, team members, or stories, you are easily able to create a template that can be uploaded each time you create a new project. This greatly reduces the time it takes to setup projects within the software if your company manages a high volume of similar projects. The best aspect of the software is you are able to give point values to stories so you can track project velocity and estimate time until completion.

Incredibly slow and laggy to the point of hurting team productivity

Project organization, prioritization and triaging.I think the user interface is really nicely done and it's intuitive to use and quick to learn. I also like that it's easy to drag and drop stories in priority order which is more efficient than Jira.
