Welcome to Metro Tracker. This is a FREE, third party, Windows Phone 8 app for Pivotal Tracker – now available in the Windows Phone Marketplace.
This version of the app allows you to list, view, edit, view attachments, reorder, move and change a stories state. Get it here: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/metrotracker/2dbb42e3-9794-48cb-9d13-fc97d273f924.
We’re always curious to know what you think so please either write a comment here or be sure to provide stars and feedback at the store.
“I’ve been looking for a couple months for the right third-party tools, and
couldn’t find them, so I decided to make my own.” said Brian Noah from eGood. We love and admire that initiative in our users, especially when they build something this cool. The app he had to build is called Member Tracker!
Member Tracker ties Pivotal Tracker stories and members together allowing you to view what different members are working on and what they have worked on in past weeks and iterations.
There are multiple ways to access this app:
• go to the website: membertracker.herokuapp.com
• install the web app onto your iPad home screen from the website in Safari.
• install the chrome shortcut via the Chrome store for quick access.
Check it out – it just may be that other perspective on Tracker you’ve been looking for.
Tracker Tracker is an open source web app that allows you to see and work with stories from across multiple projects in one Kanban style view, with search and filtering. That’s huge. We have nothing else to say on the matter really. For anyone juggling multiple projects in Pivotal Tracker this is a must consider app.
On a side note, rumor has it Tracker Tracker was built to prevent a team’s possible migration to another tool. We’re literally speechless when our community does stuff like this, but not so tongue tied we can’t say thank you!
Here are just a few of the cool features and benefits we’ve lifted directly from the Tracker Tracker github page:
- Simultaneously view and manage stories across multiple projects
- Scrum-like UI displays one column per story state
- Search across all projects simultaneously
- All labels for all projects are visible and have epic-like mini progress charts
- Columns can be rearranged
- Labels, searches, column order, selected projects all survive browser restart
- It’s pretty easy to write custom columns and filters
- Forecasting charts
With all these APIs floating around don’t you sometimes wish that apps would just talk to each other and keep us humans out of it. We’re not there yet, but we’re getting close with CloudWork.
It’s so straightforward I feel it’s something the Hulk might say – “Cloud Work!, Hulk no Smash puny keyboard”. If I were to use more than a noun and a verb to describe it, CloudWork connects apps via their APIs to help automate business processes. Yeah, I prefer the Hulk version. Also it doesn’t require any programming knowledge to use it (yes, there are people that read this blog that can’t code).
RIght now they connect Pivotal Tracker with Toggl, Google Calendar, Evernote, Zendesk and desk.com. I’m sure if you ask them to link to something else they’ll get to it pretty fast. They’re a cool team that is pretty on the ball. Please give it a try and tell us what you think.
