Track Pivotal Tracker with Yoke

Yoke.io uses Pivotal Tracker APIs to report on key metrics such as the number of incomplete stories in the current iteration, or stories in the upcoming iteration.

About the integration

Yoke uses basic authentication to get an API token, which is used in the secure REST API calls to Pivotal Tracker. Your password is not stored in Yoke.

Card Types

You can track the following measures for any project in your Pivotal Tracker project:

  • stories in the upcoming iteration
  • incomplete stories in the current iteration
  • finished stories in the current iteration

Alerting logic

A machine learning figures out the typical time taken to update a story, and warns you if a story has been left untouched for longer than usual. Yoke alerts typically indicate a lack of agility in releasing features.

Slack integration

You can query your Pivotal Tracker cards from Slack using slash commands.

Automatic bookmarks in Chrome

The Yoke Auto-Bookmarks Extension turns the stories picked up by your Pivotal Tracker cards into bookmarks in Chrome.

Tips for Yoke users

Pivotal Tracker is a great project management tool built specifically for Agile projects. Projects are executed in iterations, and each iteration implements one or more stories. Stories can capture bugs, features, chores and releases.

Yoke automatically identifies the current and upcoming iterations. In a typical Yoke setup,

  • Product owners should track stories in the upcoming iteration to make sure that they are well defined.
  • Product owners should also track finished stories in the current iteration to make sure that they are Approved/Rejected after review.
  • Scrum masters should track incomplete stories in the current iteration.
  • Other agile team members can track incomplete stories in the current iteration assigned to them.

The Yoke Auto-Bookmarks Extension helps you quickly access stories picked up by Yoke cards.
