Overall Satisfaction with Pivotal Tracker

Engineering and Product teams use this tool. We use it to track releases, new features, builds, and bugs. Product writes stories in tracker, stories are attached to epics and designs are attached to epics, stories are pointed with the engineering team, assigned and delivered. It helps us track our product lifecycle.
  • Easy interface that aligns with writing stories and assigning them to epics and team members
  • Tag feature allows for easy filtering of stories
  • Tracking feature allows PMs to know when stories are being worked on and delivered
  • Icebox and backlog functionality allow you to move stories around when they are ready to be worked on
  • Would like to be able to move stories around in a filter view and not just in backlog
  • Autosync and refresh of updates would be nice
  • Easier to track projects and keep the team organized
  • Holds engineers accountable to their assigned tasks
JIRA is very complex, while tracker is more straightforward to use. Tracker requires less micromanagement and upkeep.
Asana is pretty but not useful for product and engineering build. It is more geared towards design projects.
Good for tracking product builds and releases. Good at tracking bugs and fixes. Less useful for tracking design or the product lifecycle of tasks from ideation to spec to design to build. Only good at the build portion. Not helpful with timelining.
