Overall Satisfaction with Pivotal Tracker

We have been using Pivotal Tracker (PT) to track and manage our sprints. It allows us to simply place all of our work and assign it to specific engineers. One of the key things it helps us do is track the stage and age of tasks to help get a good understanding of where things are.

Pros

  • The stages a task can go through i.e. Deliver and Accept are great at helping you keep track of what is going on
  • The integration with Slack is useful so that our team is notified when specific aspects of a task changes

Cons

  • The burn down charts are not something we use, I think this feature isn't 'culturally' useful for our team since we do not work in this way
  • I would like to be able to bundle the tasks under specific releases within a sprint and not have them move around based on their status
  • It has kept us more organised and gives us a central place to reference sprints
I wasn't part of the selection process.
I think PT would be great if your team religiously stuck to sprints however we are more fluid than that and so I think some of the features do not make a difference to us.

Out of all the tools I have seen I do think it is the best for managing sprints however it is not a good external facing roadmap. However, I do not think it is trying to be that.
