Happy Friday! We’ve just rolled out some changes to Pivotal Tracker, which we’re hoping will have a very noticeable impact on usability, especially for those of you who manage large projects. You can now select multiple stories with a few clicks, using shift-click, and drag them together to a new location.

This helps keep track of all the little things you have to do, and lets everyone else on the project know exactly what’s left. Read more...
