Manage Your Software Project with GitHub and Forecast

Managing a software project is a lot of work. Doing the scoping, planning sprints, completing tasks, testing & deploying, and not to forget maintaining and bug fixing. How do you manage this whole flow in a manageable way?

One great option is to connect your GitHub repositories to your project & resource management solution. This gives you one single place to manage your workflow, while integrating your repository and making the information you need easily accessible to everybody on the team.

Linking pull requests and issues directly with tasks and scheduling makes for a much more integrated flow throughout the project's life cycle. From initial planning, to running, to the eventual closure of the project. Every step of the way is connected and follows a natural progression from one phase to the next.

You simply link each project to a repository in Settings. Then you'll be able to link issues and pull requests with individual tasks in Forecast. The status will always be visible and the GitHub page is just a click away.

In a similar manner, the task in Forecast is also just a click away from GitHub. Thus, you can manage the task within Forecast, plan into milestones and sprints, assign people, attach files, comment, and engage with the rest of the team through a shared environment. An environment that's comfortable for any type of team, whether technical or creative.

Planning what's coming up is easy with Scoping and Sprints in Forecast. Move your GitHub-linked tasks between milestones and sprints, and make sure everybody knows what needs to get done next.

During your project, you can always keep an eye on the progress through a project insights report. You can customize the report to your needs, simply by selecting the insight components you want, and dig in.

If you want to take a broader perspective, or if you're an agency managing several projects, you can even take a step back and view real-time insights on people, the entire portfolio, or the business in general.
