  1. YouTrack is a nice approach to deliver a uncluttered issue tracker. That’s really fine. What’s not so fine is the list of still unaddressed annoyances YouTrack has for developers NOT using JetBrains IDE’s (maybe because they simply do not exists for the language/environment used) and the unflexibility in branding/customizing the look and feel to meet CI of customers / using company.

    For example: I’m a traveller between the worlds of PHP, JS, Objective C and C#. While i use PhpStorm for all PHP/JS related stuff and i may be able (but i do not see the benefit yet) AppCode for Objective C stuff, i cannot use any of those gazillion wonderful JetBrain IDE’s for .NET development because there still none exist for that.

    Unfortunately there’s also no usable integration between YouTrack and VisualStudio to link issues with code / comments and get a tigther workflow.

    For my clients: They don’t understand what’s that YouTrack thing… Is it a tracker in ad-speaking? A thing to stalk clients? And why can’t they see their corporate colors and their corporate logo and/or product logo? Why isn’t it possible to customize at least the colors of YouTrack?

    I really want that YouTrack thing because it is lean and uncluttered. I like the simplicity of the permission system compared to the totally sick thin in Jira. Anyway… Integration of Jira with the “outside world” is better and customizing is possible. And the thing you should never underestimate: The naming “Jira” does not irritate clients.

    I know… From a developer’s standpoint “YouTrack” makes some sense (coming from “Issue Tracking”) but most of my clients – and i think that’s for most users of YouTrack the same – are NOT developers. That’s why they pay me ;-)

    I am sad that even in Version 5 YouTrack cannot have a customized look and feel and that’s still not possible to integrate it with VisualStudio – that’s really some pain for those who develop in the Microsoft universe. That’s also the reason why i’ currently stay with Jira and hope that YouTrack soon becomes an option for me…

      Thanks for such detailed feedback, we really appreciate it!
      1. Customizing UI requesr is pretty popular among our existing and potential customers, so it’s definitely planned and will be implemented, (hopefully) in the next major version. By the way, custom logo is available in all the commercial YouTrack versions via admisitration->projects->settings.
      2. Integration withVisualStudio and TFS are very popular requests as well. What level of integration will cover your needs? Will linking the issues with code/comments cover your needs or you’re thinking about more complicated integration?
      3. Obviously it’s a bit late to change the name of the product, but thanks for your points, we appreciate your feedback.
