Track your progress

From Velocity and Burndown Charts to Cumulative Flow Diagrams, a rich set of views will help you visualize and track progress from every angle.

I have never met a team that loves their task tracker, period. I hear a lot of unsolicited positive comments about the joy of using Shortcut and very, very few complaints. Shortcut is a perfect balance between structure and usability. It gives us what we need, and there's enough flexibility that we've been able to change our processes a lot and still use Shortcut.Matt Spitz, Head of Engineering
