Pivotal Tracker Software


 

Pivotal Tracker from Pivotal is a cloud-based agile project management solution designed to facilitate collaboration between teams and monitor progress throughout the entire project lifecycle. The solution allows team members involved in a project to list down actionable items, assign activities, prioritize tasks, and set deadlines.

Pivotal Tracker automatically calculates the estimated time required to complete a single task or the entire project based on the past efficiency of the team. This allows managers to have fine delivery estimates for all projects that can be configured based on real-time circumstances and workforce availability. The solution offers a guided iteration-planning tool that helps users to prioritize project activities and break down tasks into a number of manageable chunks.

Pivotal Tracker offers a shared calendar that displays daily assignment, project status and future availability of resources. Designed primarily for software developers, Pivotal Tracker can also be used across other industries irrespective of size and vertical for managing project life cycle.

Pros

I especially like the fact that the dashboard is editable to suit my particular preferences and that my remote staff can do same time.
Being the team lead, I love that with one page view I can also track the tasks and progress of my team members

Cons

I don't think this is good for a team larger than 10 because then the dashboard will be terribly cluttered with be too many windows to open. But in all its a smart co-working tool for small businesses like mine

I used to be a Pivot.

Pros

Tons of tracking and story organization tools to create "epics" (batches of stories), "labels" (grouped stories) and analyze projects.

Cons

There are such a multitude of different options and tools that it can be overwhelming at first glance. You really need a "Pivot" to teach it to you to fully understand how to use it.

Easy to assign stories to developer and have a bird's eye view of a project.

Likes Least

It is hard to view all the tasks that I am assigned. Let's say I am included in 15+ different projects and I have stories assigned to me in different ones, I would need to go to each individual project to view my tasks. I know that I can group all my projects, but that is too much of a hassle. It would be nice if there is a way to view all my tasks in one panel, like a todo list.

Recommendations

Create workspaces so you can clump multiple projects together. This makes it easier to see what is in your icebox and see what tasks is assigned to you.

For my line of work, the product is pretty straight forward and easy to use. I don't manage projects but am always entering, reviewing and updating stories within the project and have never had any trouble. It doesn't take too long at all to get acclimated with it and once you have it down, it's smooth sailing.

I really like the that they keep the product up-to-date and add new features.

I haven't had any issues with the product so far and anything that was a small minor annoyance has been fixed with their newer updates. Small things make big differences.

Are you looking for a bug tracking system? Maybe a project management system? Then look no further! I really have enjoyed using the product and would venture out in saying that it's probably the best bug tracking system I've used thus far.

The search engine is highly optimized and makes sifting through our QA Database easy. Additionally, there relatively zero downtime. The few times we've experienced a drop, they keep their social media updated every couple of minutes so you can refresh and follow along as the issues are fixed.

Likes Least

Right now there's very little info on the history of a project. Individual story histories are available, but you can only bring up one product's history at a time. They "are" working on it in a tab called "Analytics BETA", however, it's a bit of a blatant feature that should have been included for launch.

Recommendations

Make sure your team can work without an in-depth project history.

I like how easy it is to filter through the stories lists so I can see exactly what information I'm hunting for. This is especially useful on projects with lots of bugs or feature requests, so I can limit the list to only the stories relevant to my work. I also like how frequently Pivotal is updated with new features and upgrades... it feels reassuring as a user to know the product we're using is maintained well!

Likes Least

It's difficult to see all information across all projects at a glance, in my experience. I'm involved in dozens of projects simultaneously, all with incoming bugs and feature requests, so it would be really useful to be able to see everything at once easily. I know it's possible to create a workspace to do this, but I'd prefer to have it work out of the box.

Recommendations

Make liberal use of labels and tasks, it will greatly improve the effectiveness of new stories and issues being tracked.

It is a great way to communicate with the developer and the implementation teams and make sure that the changes to the website are made.

In the beginning, it takes time to get used the product. It isn't completely intuitive in the beginning but once you do learn it then it becomes second nature. It just takes a bit of time to learn it and feel comfortable with it.

I like that you can "start" a bug task, and easily tag people. Also the notifications are very helpful so I can instantly see when my attention is needed on a particular story. I also enjoy being able to look at my projects one by one, so I can focus on completing one project at a time.

Likes Least

I would like it if I could re-check the notifications so that I could go in to the whole task, read it and then make the notification highlighted again. Sort of like making your inbox emails look "unread" so I can go back in there when I'm ready to do the task and still have that reminder.

Recommendations

The more you use this program the easier it becomes. It was intimidating to me at first, but after using it for a week I felt confident using it without any issues.

Smooth Agile Tool for Startups

I liked that the contents of the dashboard is customizable for every member of the team who all had different roles. For instance, as a web developer I constantly kept my eyes on "My Work", "Current", and "BackLog" as I liked to track my tasks as well as what others in the team had in progress. On the other hand, the Project Manager had "Charts" and "Epics" opened as he wanted to track the velocity of the team. Aside from the customizable element, the dashboard was easy to edit as changes to an existing story as well as creating new ones could be accomplished in one tab/window without moving onto a new page. Because everything could be tracked with a one page view, it provided a good summary of what everyone was up to as well as nice way to track individual tasks.

Likes Least

For a larger team I feel that it would be difficult to keep the dashboard maintain the nice clean look. As a developer that used Pivotal Tracker in a startup accelerator, every project I worked on was for a different company and each team had about 4 to 7 people (which was a good size for collective Pivotal Tracker usage). In a larger company, there could be larger sized teams which could potentially make the dashboard more cluttered and thus require a careful categorization of their projects for later review. Although I personally did not have to face this scenario often I could see it being a bit of an issue if my team and company was that of larger scale.

Recommendations

If you are a visual person like myself, I recommend looking for softwares that has an elaborate dashboard. In an agile team, having a dashboard that is easy to see is crucial and even more so if all the functionalities are there. I like not having to open multiple windows to view and edit details of the stories because then I could see everything with the bigger picture in mind. At the same time it has to look uncluttered as much as possible. Otherwise the use of Agile softwares depends on the size of the team and how important it is to track historical records of different projects down the line.

Easy to Use for Small and Large Scale Projects!

Ease-of-use

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.

Likes Least

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.

Recommendations

Pivotal Tracker is definitely one of the best Agile project management tools on the market, but it will also work if your company doesn't follow the Agile methodology. It is an online software, so you don't need to worry about making sure all team members are using computers with the same operating system. I would definitely recommend it to companies looking to organize their development or software engineering projects.

The product is opinionated enough to have a clear purpose but reasonably flexible. Plus it comes from Pivotal, so I trust that it will be reliable and performant.

Likes Least

The product's great, but it doesn't solve problems associated with incorporating research and design into an agile workflow, so it's not the be-all-end-all of software development trackers.

Recommendations

It's not for everyone, but if you want a system that supports an active agile or XP team, it's one of the best built.

Innovative interface with a lot of control over what you see, what is filtered, what you're interacting with, etc. Help videos and knowledge base are well developed and informative. Lots of integration options with external systems.

Likes Least

Compared to something like FogBugz which is much simpler and more intuitive, the degree of complexity within Pivotal can be a little jarring, and some setup and accommodation time is usually required for newcomers.

Recommendations

Since Pivotal is more complex and somewhat more expensive, make sure that *what you need* isn't really something simpler such as e.g. FogBugz. If you do go with Pivotal make sure time is set aside for the learning curve for yourself, your processes, and/or your internal users.

We use it to plan our iterations and see what can fit in and what can't.

Pros

Once you get the hang of it it's pretty easy to use; tasks just go in according to stack and it all makes sense. It has a good drag and drop ability which I find very useful.

Cons

I don't like the fact that I need to hack my way around it to fit my needs. Also the colors are quite depressing to be honest. Graphics are kinda old fashioned if I'm fully honest.

Our team is able to stay on track with work in a sprint and spend less time chatting on Slack about story progress, and do all the communication within PivotalTracker. Overall, this has kept our team organized and accountable.

Pros

It has a really easy-to-use, friendly design that makes it simple to track progress of stories, keep things organized in projects and move items around when priorities shift. Stories provide a level of detail that helps keep teams aware of progress. They recently introduced customizable story templates, which have been great for making sure our bug tickets have the level of detail we expect on our team. I would highly recommend Pivotal Tracker for agile teams looking to keep organized.

Cons

I wish there was more customization in the app. Some of the stages of a story don't particularly fit within our team's workflow, and the agile approach of velocity and estimates don't currently apply to us, but seem to still determine where our stories fit in a sprint. It would also be nice if the app brought more of a product management approach into it's design - currently, our list just ends up looking like a large parking lot of features, and we end up doing a lot of dragging and dropping to put things in order. It would be great to show that these things are tied to particular product goals.

Project organization, prioritization and triaging.

Pros

I think the user interface is really nicely done and it's intuitive to use and quick to learn. I also like that it's easy to drag and drop stories in priority order which is more efficient than Jira.

Cons

The software is EXTREMELY slow and laggy. It sometimes takes 2 minutes just to load the web page from scratch (and this is true on all browsers and in incognito mode). Clicking to open a story can take several seconds, and clicking on a thumbnail to see an attached screenshot can take 10-15 seconds. It feels like pulling your hair out and really slows down productivity. Their mobile apps are also slow and very buggy - it oftentimes shows ??? as the owner unless you clear the cache. I've tried to report these issues to their customer service team but they blame it on "network issues on my end". That's funny since it happens on every device and from every network I've accessed Pivotal Tracker from.

For the most part, internally, this has replaced email. We also use this to manage all company goals and initiatives, bug fixes, new features on the website, etc.

It also allows us all to see the pipeline of new initiatives and allow someone who might be the best person to work on a specific project take ownership of it

Pros

Having multiple projects going in multiple different areas of the company ( sales, marketing, development, etc) is very easy to track and to properly manage all the different projects going on in the company

Cons

While there are some organization with tagging user stories and creating epics, it would be nice if there was a way to order all stories in a filtered way. The issue we are running into is that we have many different projects, some of which are related to each other, but are randomly organized by the tag; rather than the date created or the priority.

Solid task management and project management features, with good 3rd-party integrations.

Pros

It's quite easy to use, and has good 3rd-party integrations (such as with Slack and with Github). It allows a good level of detail within each task item, and the app updates nicely on they fly when several people are editing the tasks at the same time.

I don't think I've noticed many; perhaps it could allow more customization of task attributes, or Sprint/Project details -- but I don't think we've been limited by that at all.

I like how clear Pivotal Tracker is with it's integration of workflow and mythology. Using Pivotal Tracker I found it really easy to follow an Agile Development methodology. I especially liked the workflow for checking out tasks, and submitting them for approval.

Cons

It doesn't feel as "friendly" as other more consumer facing management tech. However, it is designed for serious work by serious teams. It fulfills this purpose very well. No unnecessary gradients, color splashes, or neon.

Pros

Organization - I feel like it does a great job keeping us organized on a few levels - (1) from week to week on sprints, and (2) organizing based on tags. It's generally easy to project out the next few weeks of tasks and search through the backlog.

Cons

It was a big challenging to navigate at first. After a month or so I was used to how my team was using it.

Pros

I really like the fact that it has a well-established processes which is built upon agile methodology in software development. This helps in giving a sense of direction to anyone who is new to agile processes. You don't have to worry about what are the stages and how to group your tasks. With PT your agile development is as seamless as it can ever get.

Cons

What I will least like is the algorithm used in calculating team strength because if non developer such as project owners are involved in pivotal possible to overview the progress and see what task has been performed and what is left, a false team strength is added which doesn't give an accurate assessment of the team.
