Agents can create stories in Pivotal Tracker based on incoming tickets from Freshservice. Say, your new product is out on beta, every feedback the beta users give needs to be considered by the product managers and engineers. With this integration, when your beta users raise a bug or feature request in Freshservice, you can add it as a Pivotal Tracker story in the corresponding project.


Installation Procedure:

  • Login to your support portal as an administrator.

  • Go to Admin > Helpdesk Productivity > Apps > Get More Apps

  • Search for Pivotal Tracker. Select it and click on Install. You will be taken to the app configuration page. 

  • In the app configuration page, enter your Pivotal Tracker API (You can generate your API Token from your Pivotal Tracker under Profiles > API Token).




  • You can choose to get updates from Pivotal Tracker. So when there is an update on the story created in Pivotal Tracker, a private note gets added to the ticket (please note that is available only for incidents). 

  • Click on the Enable button.

  • Now, when you open a ticket, the Pivotal Tracker widget will be available on the bottom right of the screen.
