Who is Pivotal Tracker For?

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.

Pivotal Helps Keep your Team Organized

16/11/2016

We have been using Pivotal Tracker for several years now and it has quite a few features that keep our development team organized. We don't use the layers that predict how long feature will take those elements tend to require some programming knowledge and since I manage the system it's hard for me to assign point values to those. But I expect that adds a few more layers of functionality. Just the basic of being able to create a development ticket, assign it to a developer, tag the designer in comments so he gets inquiries, and use the approval process is a game changer in terms of staying organized. Everyone can tap into Pivotal Tracker and know exactly what their game plan is for the day.

Pivotal gives the entire team visibility into our roadmap

15/10/2016

We've happily used Pivotal as a team for a couple of years now. Anyone on the team can contribute to creating stories that are then prioritized accordingly and brought into our product. The feature set is robust while the UI is intuitive. Our team has built some great product features by using Pivotal as our mode for keeping the team focused and aligned.

It has been good so far.

17/02/2016

Pros

Easy to assign stories to developer and have a bird's eye view of a project.

Cons

It is hard to view all the tasks that I am assigned. Let's say I am included in 15+ different projects and I have stories assigned to me in different ones, I would need to go to each individual project to view my tasks. I know that I can group all my projects, but that is too much of a hassle. It would be nice if there is a way to view all my tasks in one panel, like a todo list.

Pivotal Tracker for Bug Tracking and Project Management

16/02/2016

Pros

For my line of work, the product is pretty straight forward and easy to use. I don't manage projects but am always entering, reviewing and updating stories within the project and have never had any trouble. It doesn't take too long at all to get acclimated with it and once you have it down, it's smooth sailing. I really like the that they keep the product up-to-date and add new features.

Cons

I haven't had any issues with the product so far and anything that was a small minor annoyance has been fixed with their newer updates. Small things make big differences.

Are you looking for a bug tracking system? Maybe a project management system? Then look no further! I really have enjoyed using the product and would venture out in saying that it's probably the best bug tracking system I've used thus far.

Quick, efficient and a pleasure to use.

16/02/2016

Pros

The search engine is highly optimized and makes sifting through our QA Database easy. Additionally, there relatively zero downtime. The few times we've experienced a drop, they keep their social media updated every couple of minutes so you can refresh and follow along as the issues are fixed.

Cons

Right now there's very little info on the history of a project. Individual story histories are available, but you can only bring up one product's history at a time. They "are" working on it in a tab called "Analytics BETA", however, it's a bit of a blatant feature that should have been included for launch.

Intuitive Software with Great Features

16/02/2016

Pros

I like how easy it is to filter through the stories lists so I can see exactly what information I'm hunting for. This is especially useful on projects with lots of bugs or feature requests, so I can limit the list to only the stories relevant to my work. I also like how frequently Pivotal is updated with new features and upgrades... it feels reassuring as a user to know the product we're using is maintained well!

Cons

It's difficult to see all information across all projects at a glance, in my experience. I'm involved in dozens of projects simultaneously, all with incoming bugs and feature requests, so it would be really useful to be able to see everything at once easily. I know it's possible to create a workspace to do this, but I'd prefer to have it work out of the box.

16/02/2016

Pivotal Tracker is a great tool for easy accountability and time management when working with multiple projects at one time.

It is a very reliable program with great backing (customer service support) and detailed processes that are easy to follow.

This product is efficient and effective!

16/02/2016

Pros

I like that once you learn how to use this product then it is very quick and easy. It is efficient and effective! Many different teams at my company use this product and it seems to keep everyone on the same page and on track. It is a great way to communicate with the developer and the implementation teams and make sure that the changes to the website are made.

Cons

In the beginning, it takes time to get used the product. It isn't completely intuitive in the beginning but once you do learn it then it becomes second nature. It just takes a bit of time to learn it and feel comfortable with it.

Effective Project Management Tool

16/02/2016

Pros

I like that you can "start" a bug task, and easily tag people. Also the notifications are very helpful so I can instantly see when my attention is needed on a particular story. I also enjoy being able to look at my projects one by one, so I can focus on completing one project at a time.

Cons

I would like it if I could re-check the notifications so that I could go in to the whole task, read it and then make the notification highlighted again. Sort of like making your inbox emails look "unread" so I can go back in there when I'm ready to do the task and still have that reminder.

The more you use this program the easier it becomes. It was intimidating to me at first, but after using it for a week I felt confident using it without any issues.
