Overall Satisfaction with Pivotal Tracker

Pivotal Tracker is the backbone of our software development workflow. We use it to capture new ideas, organize tasks ahead of milestones, and focus on what needs to be done to reach our goals.
  • Simple, focused workflow that has all the features we need, and nothing more.
  • The ability to group tasks by epics allows us to have multiple focuses at once, not just a single "backlog."
  • Setting weekly markers has drastically increased our focus, as it helps us visualize the affect of adding new work to our existing plans.
  • It would be nice to have the ability to add custom steps to the workflow like JIRA.
  • It's sometimes hard to fit our workflows into the steps that PT requires.
  • Better Slack integration would be nice!
  • We never find our developers working on something that isn't important. How's that for focus?
  • The simple, clear approach to prioritization has allow non-technical product owners to easily visualize our goals.
For teams less than a dozen or so, JIRA is total overkill. PT is just the right amount of complexity for our company.
It's the PERFECT solution for development teams no larger than ten or so members. I've used a lot of different issue trackers/project management tools, and nothing comes close to PT.
