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.

Build better software, faster.

Great project planning tool

Verified Reviewer  22nd of December, 2015

Nazanine Pineda, Co-Founder at Methodologee.com
When building out our web application (Methodologee), we needed a story-based project planning tool/agile software that allowed our team to collaborate and execute all the features instantly. We were referred to PT by our Senior Developer and loved using it.

Pros: Great agile software, easy story writing tool, API to the feedback and knowledge based tools we were using.

Cons: The mobile app was not that great but it might have improved by now.

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.

Pros: Easy to use. App available on iPad which is a massive plus.

Easy-to-use Tracking Tool

15th of November, 2012

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

9th of November, 2012

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.

3rd of October, 2012

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

Getting more Agile every day

30th of January, 2012

Louis Raveton
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.

Pros: I particularly like PT fine integration to third party tools such as Google Docs (particularly useful for attaching specifications to stories), Google Mail (allow you answer to comments directly from your inbox) and Story Mapper by Carbon Five

Cons: Limited reporting possibilities

Fantastic project management app!

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.

Cons: Realtime updates could be more instantaneous for European users - right now they take about half a second. It would be nice if there would be a way to paste a screenshot without first saving it as a file.

Efficient Agile Management tool
