Why developers like Pivotal Tracker?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Pivotal Tracker in their tech stack.
Over time, as our teams became bigger and projects became more complex, we started to take agile processes more seriously and wanted more advanced (by our standards) project management abilities, like burndown charts, velocity tracking, etc. We also wanted to handle a lot of content management tasks that were primarily done by non-technical teams but often touched engineering.
After using Pivotal Tracker and Wrike, JIRA ended up being the right choice for us. Its design was flexible enough to do engineering project management, content management and other tasks like product roadmapping effectively. It had all the bells and whistles we wanted (plus many more we never got around to using). Given that it is a flexible service that tries to do everything, it is ideal for a team that can 1) dedicate significant bandwidth to upfront setup and organization and 2) empower admins to establish and enforce best practices among team members.

Pivotal Tracker's features
- Tracker Story- simple story editing and drag-and-drop prioritization
- Velocity and Emergent Iterations- Tracker calculates future iterations automatically, based on historical performance.
- Release and Scope Management- Completion dates are calculated automatically, based on velocity - your live measure of historical performance. See impact on scope as new stories are added immediately, and move stories around easily via drag and drop as priorities change.
- Simple, Effective Workflow- Jump right into your project with a simple workflow that emphasizes rapid delivery and lots of feedback.
- Feedback Loop- A Tracker story is only considered done when accepted by the project's customer. This creates a constant feedback loop, starting in the very first iteration
- Focus on MVP- Focus on delivering stories and shipping working software often are tightly woven into the fabric of Tracker.
- Visualize Progress- Keep an eye on your project with Tracker's built-in charts, including release burn-down, iteration burn-up, story type breakdown, and historical velocity.
- Real-time Collaboration- virtual team room, story comments, attach mockups, organize stories by labels
- iOS App- Your backlog, icebox, and other panels are all exactly where you'd expect from using the Pivotal Tracker website.
