YouTrack has gained widespread popularity thanks to its
keyboard-oriented approach, powerful search queries and command syntax,
and fully customizable workflows and issue attributes.
YouTrack 4.0 introduces a completely new, independent Agile project
management module. Now Scrum teams can plan and manage their work
during a series of consecutive sprints, while teams that follow Kanban
process can manage and measure their work flow on the board. Agile
project management in YouTrack is flexible enough to adapt to mature
Scrum or Kanban workflows, as well as to introduce new teams to these
Agile processes. In fact, all teams can get the best of both worlds, by
blending their favorite practices from either process.
"YouTrack doesn't impose any specific Agile process on you, but helps
you follow the core methodology guidelines and adapt them to your
workflow," said Vadim Gurov, YouTrack Team Lead. "If you're new to
Agile, you can organize and visualize your process and get introduced
to the main principles of each process. If you're an expert, you can
easily adapt YouTrack to your workflow and mix-and-match the best
practices of each process."
Key Agile features of new YouTrack 4.0 include:
Burndown and Cumulative Flow charts
Multiple projects on one board
Other great features in YouTrack 4.0 include:
Custom notification templates
Custom reordering of issues
SSL keys management
Global and Personal Context
