  • 13. Tip #1Dont collect just email in your beta signuppage. What is your pain points? Pivotal Tracker (increasingly popular among small to medium teams) ● Epics and story hierarchy are almost non-existent. ● x-project visibility ● Notifications and searching ● Distributed team, would like better estimate tool and projections based trends... ● summary view point. ● Pivotal Tracker is great for developers and product managers, but pretty much kills my ability to manage the design department. GreenHopper (the most popular one from Eidos beta registrants) ● It doesnt yet have What If analysis or Evidence Based Scheduling. ● Difficult to implement flows. My team members cant get it to a user friendly flow ● Feels like the tool hinders more than it helps; ● Hour burndown doesnt update the initial value if tasks are added after the sprint has started. ● Poor hierarchy in the planning: after the sprint components are created, the hierarchy cannot be edited; ● No possibility to filter out time tracking if the subtasks are part of several "sprint" placeholders;
