Structure project management/ticketing system

Pros

With a deep integration with Github, Pivotal Tracker is a to go project management system. Learning curve is close to 0 thanks to the limited features, the tracker is meant to be used in a very specific way reducing the amount of time team members have to align on the use of the tool

Cons

Can be too limiting, some time the ice box gets huge and things get lost, SCRUM master have to do their due diligence to keep things clean.

Easy to Use for Small and Large Scale Projects!

Pros

Pivotal Tracker is very easy to use, but you are able to get granular with projects if you need to. Basically, it works for small scale and large scale projects. The software is very organized which contributes to its ease of use. If you manage or create multiple projects with the same structure, team members, or stories, you are easily able to create a template that can be uploaded each time you create a new project. This greatly reduces the time it takes to setup projects within the software if your company manages a high volume of similar projects. The best aspect of the software is you are able to give point values to stories so you can track project velocity and estimate time until completion.

Cons

If you work on multiple projects at once, it can be difficult to view all stories you own across all projects. You will have to manual setup a multi-project workspace in order to see all stories that you own. If a new project gets created, you must manually add it to the workspace. This is the products biggest downfall in my opinion.

Systematic way to manage projects

With multiple projects and a large team size, Pivotal is a very useful tool to keep a track of your projects. Also, there is no room for a communication gap between product and team teams by having a binary system to track the tasks.

Pros

Pivotal is a multi-functional SAAS platform with features like: 1. Managing projects along with real-time collaboration 2. Easily accept or reject a story 3. View stories based on their status - pending/completed

Cons

The UX looks very old more like a decade-old design. The learning curve is steep. You need someone's help to understand the functionalities or watch a demo video.

Reasons for switching to Pivotal Tracker

Pivotal has a way more functionality than other tools
