Integrate Aha! with Pivotal Tracker
This integration allows you to push your features, activities and requirements in Aha! Roadmaps into Pivotal Tracker and get status changes back. Because this is a two-way integration, your strategy can flow from Aha! Roadmaps to your development team in Pivotal Tracker, and receive status updates back as they complete the work. You can also create multiple integrations per workspace to accommodate how the engineering team is split up.
Make sure you give each integration a unique name to keep the teams straight.

Features of the integration
When Aha! Roadmaps sends a feature or activity to Pivotal Tracker, it sends the following fields: name, description, requirements, attachments, and story point estimates.
From Aha! Roadmaps to Pivotal Tracker
One Aha! Roadmaps workspace is associated with one or more Pivotal Tracker projects.
Individual features can be sent to Pivotal Tracker using the Integrations dropdown on the features details or drawer view.
All features in a release (that have not already been implemented or sent to Pivotal Tracker previously) can be sent to Pivotal Tracker using the Integrations dropdown on the release page.
Features can be mapped to epics or stories in Pivotal Tracker.
Requirements, which live in features, can be mapped to stories or tasks in Pivotal Tracker.
Only the description and attachments of a feature or requirement are sent. No Aha! Roadmaps to-dos or comments are included.
When a feature is sent to Pivotal Tracker, its status in Aha! Roadmaps is automatically changed to Ready to develop.
After a feature is first sent to Pivotal Tracker, changes to the name, description, and requirements can also be sent to Pivotal Tracker using the Update pivotal tracker option within the Integrations dropdown on the features page or by sending all features in a release to Pivotal Tracker again.
New requirements will also be created in Pivotal Tracker, however, stories that were created for an existing requirement are not deleted from Pivotal Tracker if the requirement is deleted from Aha! Roadmaps. If an attachment is deleted in Aha! Roadmaps, the corresponding attachment in Pivotal Tracker is not deleted.
From Pivotal Tracker to Aha! Roadmaps
Changes in Pivotal Tracker will be reflected in Aha! Roadmaps in real time. This enables you to track what stories have been completed automatically. The following fields will flow into Aha! Roadmaps from Pivotal Tracker:
