New in Pivotal Tracker: Full Page Stories!

One of the goals of Pivotal Tracker is to give everyone on your team the same view of your project, and allow people to work with individual stories but without losing sight of the big picture.

Some stories, though, and especially epics, can accumulate quite a bit content, including comments, source commits, and mockups. It can be hard to read all this, sometimes, so to make it easier, we’ve added the ability to zoom in, and expand stories to full page mode.

This feature also lets you get to individual stories much faster, when clicking on a link to a story, for example in an email.

To toggle between a normal size story to full page mode, click on the arrow button to the right of the story title. To shrink a full page story, and see it the context of the project, click the arrow button in the top right corner, next to the ‘x’, which closes the story.

Any changes you might be in the middle of making on the story get preserved as you zoom in or out.

We’d love to know what you think! Share your feedback in comments here, or by by email to

  1. Is there a way to “deep link” (i.e. anchor down) to a specific comment?

    Overall, this is a great little new feature. We’re looking forward to the new notification, and team view features that you shared last night.


  2. Great feature, thanks. It would be nice if the Description field would be taller in the full-screen view, even when empty. I often add stories to the icebox just as a title, then come back in later and add details. I’d love to be able to maximize the story and have a nice, big text field to start typing in, but right now, it still feels squished. (In fact, it would be nice to have a quick way to start a story in maximized mode.)

  3. @Nathan Arthur: I agree that the fields could be larger by default. (It’s already become second nature to manually make them larger.) Perhaps Pivotal can add a keyboard shortcut to toggle in/out of Full Page mode.

    This is great! much easier to use. Really great improvements. I’ve been doing a lot of scrolling within stories.

    I was thinking if fullscreen should be default, but not sure about that.

    double click to open the story feels clumsy, could be single click with a threshold for drag.
