  • There is no better tool at what it does.

    Pivotal Tracker Use Cases and Deployment ScopeWhen I worked with it, it was being used across the whole organization. It addressed the problem of keeping track of projects involving agile development.

    Pros : The UI is very good. You can have it across multiple platforms too.You can track side by side backlogs.See cross project collaboration and apply agile methodologies to your projects.

    Cons : I thought at some point that if the project got too big, everything would have become clogged. You need to have a very strict convention on how to manage it with multiple people so that this doesn't happen.

    "Pivotal Tracker Review"

    Pivotal Tracker Use Cases and Deployment ScopeWe use Pivotal Tracker as a tool when building websites, applications, and mobile games for outside clients. It's used by our project managers to keep projects organized, and keep tabs on bugs and features. It's essential for QA since it allows for one streamlined process of registering, discussing, and ultimately, fixing the problem.

    Pros : Clearly displays the status of a story, and clears up lines of communication on that front.Allows for prioritization of features and bugs.Allows for developers to estimate the difficulty and time needed for a story, so that project managers can adequately plan out sprints.

    Cons : Used to have a newsfeed-type feature with all the updates from the previous day. They removed it. I liked getting a snapchat of what changed from before.When signing up for email alerts, can be inundated with emails for every change to the status of a story.Communication on stories through the comment section can be a little difficult, and not very organized.

    Pivotal Tracker works for all development projects!

    Pivotal Tracker Use Cases and Deployment ScopePivotal Tracker is being used by our web development department, QA department, product department, and software engineering team. Our account managers and data entry experts are also in the system so that they can assign stories and/or complete stories that involve CMS updates vs. development work. Pivotal Tracker helps our QA and web development teams keep track of bugs when working on new website projects. Our engineering team uses the system to prioritize feature requests for our products. The company is able to stay very organized and prioritize bugs and feature requests with Pivotal Tracker.

    Pros : Pivotal Tracker makes it very easy to prioritize feature requests. It uses a drag and drop interface so you can easily reorder stories.You can easily give each story a number of points. By doing this, Pivotal Tracker automatically calculates your project's velocity and determines how many stories you can complete each week.One thing that I really love about Pivotal Tracker is that it integrates with several other softwares. We have an integration built out to Zendesk, which is used by clients to

    Cons : There isn't a simple way to view all of your assigned stories across all projects. You can set up a multi-project dashboard, but you have to add each project to the dashboard. If you have a lot of projects, it can take some time and you have to remember to add new projects when they are created.There should be an easy way to move stories from one project to another.There are some instances where it would be nice to have more than one story owner. It would be great to have that feature.

  • Great project planning tool

    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.

    Brilliant for managing Kanban style projects

    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

    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.

  • I have mixed feelings about Pivotal Tracker. It really is quite easy to use and I believe that most software designers would find it helpful. I don’t, however, see that it has much real-world application for industries. In short, I do not recommend using it unless you are an agile software developer. I just don’t see the point. There are dozens of better, more standard applications out there for basic project management requirements. Pivotal Tracker is essentially a niche software, and it does not work well outside of that niche.

    That said, in my opinion this program manages software development very well. Pivotal Labs has created an intelligent, unique application in Pivotal Tracker, imminently practical for certain purposes and certainly more well-suited for the software development industry than other management programs. The scheduling apparatus is flawed, and I wish that Tracker wasn’t hampered by such confusing and obscure terminology, but pointless vocabulary aside, the actual functionality of the software is pretty ingenious.

  • Pivotal Tracker comes with a very intuitive user interface which enables you to spend very less time for capturing information in tool. This usually is the main concern for most of the teams I have worked with. Pivotal Tracker has a very friendly UI and some really cool features.

  • Although Pivotal Tracker is a tool that can be used by professionals in many industries, it offers a number of features that developers will find especially useful.

  • Pivotal Tracker will, of course, feel most at home in businesses. It will save you time and money and the fact it is web-based and accessible from everywhere (there is even an iOS version for the iPhone and iPad) will appeal to any business, no matter how big or small. It’s a unique tool for managing your workflow, and if you’ve never found a project tool that worked great for your team, be sure to give it a try.
