Pivotal Tracker (PT) now supports several integrations like Jira, GitLab and even GitHub integration. The native PT GitHub integration automatically allows attachment of GitHub branches, pull requests, and commits to stories and epics to see your code as it moves through the development process. This allows for seamless development using the Git branch workflow: creation of pull requests and visualization of progress plus auto pulling of activities from github to PT story activities.
