YouTrack 6: A Bird's Eye View of Your Team Tasks and Projects

The intelligent issue and project tracking tool from JetBrains drastically extends its project management capabilities, adding a live Dashboard and 17 new reports to address data visualization and analysis needs of development teams and their managers

Prague, Czech Republic, October 28, 2014 — JetBrains, the creators of IntelliJ IDEA, ReSharper, TeamCity and other intelligent, productivity-enhancing tools for software developers and teams, today announced the availability of YouTrack 6, the new major release of their comprehensive issue tracking and project management tool.

YouTrack has gained widespread popularity among development teams and companies thanks to its no-nonsense, IDE-style approach to issue tracking. With powerful customization possibilities, effective time management, agile project management capabilities that support Scrum and Kanban workflows, and support for multiple languages, YouTrack is ready to support any business process.

Following a period of organic growth from issue tracking to project management, YouTrack 6 can satisfy the tracking, reporting and analysis needs of the whole development team, from developers, QA and support engineers to team leaders and managers. With 17 new reports and a live Dashboard, YouTrack reinforces itself as a single tool to track and manage everything, from bug reports and customer requests to team tasks and projects.

"The new project management capabilities complete YouTrack. It is now much more than the sum of its parts," said Vadim Gurov, YouTrack Team Lead. "All the data you need to manage your projects already exist — inside the issue tracker. So, we're exposing these data in a way that lets your team visualize its project activities, analyze performance and monitor progress. The new reports do just that, and the live Dashboard is the 'cherry on top' so you can keep a handle on everything in one place."

Key new features in YouTrack 6 include:

  • 17 new reports broken down into four types:
    • Issues distribution
    • Timeline
    • Time management
    • State transition
  • Personalized live Dashboard
  • Reworked user management
  • Multiple drafts per user
  • New image editor
  • Customizable shortcuts
  • AND logical operator in search queries

To support expanded enterprise-level requirements, JetBrains adds new, bigger YouTrack 6 Stand-Alone packs for 2,000 or 10,000 users. Alternatively, YouTrack 6 InCloud is available as a dedicated server with hosting and maintenance included.
