Pivotal Tracker vs Trajectory: What are the differences?

What is Pivotal Tracker? Build better software, faster. Collaborative, lightweight agile project management tool, brought to you by the experts in agile software development.

What is Trajectory? Trajectory is an agile planning tool for teams of designers and developers. We wanted a tool that was good for writing user stories, bugs, and to-dos but also as good for managing the discussions happening around them. Trajectory helps you stay focused on what matters. Ideas are where you discuss the goals for your project. Based on that discussion, you create stories for the implementation. Trajectory makes it easy to see all the stories for an Idea and track progress toward your goal.

Pivotal Tracker and Trajectory can be primarily classified as "Agile Project Management" tools.

Some of the features offered by Pivotal Tracker are:

  • 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.

On the other hand, Trajectory provides the following key features:

  • Stories can be estimated on an 8 point scale, or turned into todos, bugs, or milestones.
  • See your progress for the current iteration based on your expected velocity.
  • It’s easy to select, add, and insert stories at any point in your queue.

        Review ofPivotal TrackerPivotal Tracker

        Pivotal is nice if you’re a contractor or have a small team with simple process. In fact, in those circumstances it may be one of the best tools out there aside from Trello.

        However, if you have a larger team, it’s difficult for Pivotal Tracker to fit your process. It’s also difficult to plan with Pivotal Tracker - it often ends up being more of a triage tool than a good planning tool.

        The biggest limitations are the limited states for stories and limited views - everything is in a column and you can’t preset a view the whole team can see, so team members have a very hard time visually seeing the same set of stories.
