Reply to Comments with @ Mentions

Last month, we made it so that clicking on a story comment notification (either in the app or in email) took you directly to the comment in which you’d been mentioned. “That’s great and all,” we hear you saying, “but replying to that comment can be a bit painful when you’re trying to keep everyone already @ mentioned in the conversation.” Fair point! Hold onto your horses, because now you can quickly reply to everyone who’s part of a comment thread with one click. Read more...

Comment Links

Tracker’s notifications let you stay on top of story conversations as they evolve, whether you're in the app or in your email inbox. Now when you click a comment or mention notification, Tracker highlights and takes you directly to that comment. We’ve also added the ability to grab links right from the comments. You can paste them into your favorite app like Slack so others can go directly to that comment. Read more...

Help is Here!

We’ve always focused the bulk of our attention on making Tracker a straightforward—yet powerful—tool to help you deliver fine software. It’s grown into quite the precocious 10-year-old as a result though, and we felt it was about time to tackle Tracker’s 180 FAQ collection. We’ve revamped all of our help material and put it into one glorious, easily searchable spot. Here it is—the new Tracker Help Center. Read more...

Replace Owners and Requesters on Multiple Stories

There’s a brand-new addition to the Bulk Actions menu when you select multiple stories: people! From here, you can easily replace the requester or owners on a bunch of stories. Rather than opening every story to make the changes individually, you can now do it in one spot. Read more...

Collapsed Commits

Commit activity on a story can sometimes take over the conversation and make the activity stream unwieldy.  No one likes to sift through seemingly endless commits to find what they need. Read more...

Saved Search Improvements and Search Sharing

The new year is a good time to take stock of where you are, identify any issues holding you back, and make the necessary changes. To that end, we’ve made dotted lines with a Sharpie around minor problem areas in our interface and tightened them up to make them glow brighter than ever. Read more...

Tracker Analytics—Now in Public Beta!

Tracker has always focused on facilitating collaboration and transparency at the story level, but it hasn’t always been easy to see the big picture or interesting/worrying trends in your projects. In other words, there are plentiful trees, but no forest. With our new Analytics beta, we’re ready to introduce the forest to the trees. This effort has largely been driven by your feedback, and our continuous desire to improve the Tracker experience for our customers, and it’s now ready for a test drive. You can opt in here to give it a spin. Read more...

Performance Improvements, New Features, and a Peek at the Road Ahead

If you’re among the folks who have been wondering whether we’ve been trapped under a rock or lost the source code to Tracker, fear not! We are alive and well, and our coding fingers are in fine shape. Many of our efforts over the last few months have been focused on making Tracker rock-solid stable and secure, as well as iterating on brand-new features to improve the overall experience. But it’s one thing for us to say “We’ve been busy!” and hope you take our word for it; we thought it would be more useful to outline what we’ve been working on. Read more...
