JetBrains has updated YouTrack, its project management and knowledge base tool, with updates including interactive Gantt charts.
YouTrack began life as a bug tracker, and has been widened to offer more general project management. YouTrack can be used to track projects and tasks, to use agile boards, plan sprints and releases, keep a knowledge base, work with reports and dashboards, and create workflows. It can be used for issue tracking systems, and focuses on query-based issue search with auto-completion.
Developers can use it to fix bugs from GitHub, GitLab, or Bitbucket commits, as well as working with tasks from their IDE. You can also link issues with code reviews in Upsource. It can also be connected to external systems including third-party VCS, code repositories, test management platforms, and task tracking applications. In addition, an open REST API can be used to add further integrations with other products and services. More customization can be achieved using custom widgets in YouTrack's dashboards to display data from external sources.
The headline improvement to this release is the interactive Gantt chart, which can be used to plan entire projects by simply dragging and dropping tasks on a timeline to schedule them, and stretching them to set estimates. Once the task dependencies are in place, users can fine tune estimates and scheduling and then update the start dates of tasks that are affected further along the timeline.
The Workflow Constructor now lets you create workflows with state-machine rules without writing any code. State-machine rules let you define flowchart-style processes that limit the transitions that can be made between issue states, and the order they can be made in. Additionally, the search bar now lets users find issues based on attributes of issues that are linked to them.
With YouTrack 2022.1 users are able to view VCS changes in YouTrack Lite, get Knowledge Base updates in Notification Center, write formulas and equations in LaTeX notation, and even import Space projects, issues, and users.
