Agile Boards

Agile boards in YouTrack are designed to help teams follow a wide range of agile project management processes. You can create Scrum, Kanban, or Scrumban boards.

If you don’t follow any methodology, you can still create and configure a board that gives you an alternative view of the issues your team is responsible for, or even a personal board to track your personal responsibilities.

Knowledge Base

Knowledge Base

Keep your team’s collective knowledge right next to your projects and issues! Organize everything in one place – from actionable meeting notes to project plans and general HR policies. Build your team workspace – start from standard texts and enrich your content with tables, checklists, and various media such as images, videos, and documents. Add articles globally and per project, organize them in a tree structure, and use powerful full-text search to find your answers in a second. Link articles with your issues, discuss content in comments, and mention your teammates. Project collaboration has never been so effective!

Time Management

The Time Tracking features let you and your team report the amount of time spent working on issues in your project. Estimate how much time you expect to spend to resolve each issue, add work items to the issues along with the spent time, and create summary reports to see the total amount of time spent on the different types of work.

Use the pre-configured workflows to automatically track time when you start working on issues, or create your own if you prefer a specific method of tracking.

Planning

Use a Gantt Chart for an overview of the flow of your project plan. Follow the progress of your projects, estimate time, and track the results. Configure the chart to show issues from multiple projects, limit the amount of work in progress, and control how many levels of subtasks are included in the report.

YouTrack is very customizable! Whether it’s issue fields, workflows, notifications or a language – you can configure it all to your needs.
