Description from store Converts stories with tasks into epics with stories. - If “Feature Creeps” keep loading up your stories with tasks you can fight back by converting the stories with tasks into epics with individual stories. Any tasks already checked off will be treated as finished stories when converted. - If you are brainstorming around crucial dates or events you can make them the name of a story and load up the stories with tasks before converting them to epics with stories. - If stories are too vague or nonfunctional but you don’t want to lose them, simply add in the specific tasks and make the original an epic with the tasks as stories. Clones stories. - Keep a list of your favorite best practices and feature sets to clone whenever you like, saving time in your brainstorming sessions. - You will keep the full description along with the name, type, labels, tasks, and even task status. Even clone Epics. - Full clusters of activity can be saved as stories with tasks, then duplicated and converted to Epics. That’s as good as it gets since Pivotal won’t let users select epics. Plays nice. - We’ve tested. Does not slow down your web experience or store personal information. Update 1.0: Now much less confusing. no token copy-pasting required. Requires that the "Create New Token" button in your Pivotal Tracker Profile be clicked. Updates: 1.1: fixed a bug involving leftover token if the token is refreshed. 1.2: minor bugfixes. 1.3: more minor bugfixes 1.4: Handled a bug likely caused by Pivotal Tracker's new API in beta. 1.5: Name changed from "Pivotal Tracker+" and icon changed so that the app meets the standard of Pivotal Tracker's Third Party Application page. 1.6: Fixed bug that made the "Make Stories into Epics" function not work if there was no tasks under the story. The error was a remnant of the code that existed before development of epics was possible to prevent the accidental deletion of a story, but that "feature" is a bug now, so it was removed 1.7: Install much easier now. Tutorial not needed. Does not support attachments. Duplicate now runs on API v5 and is much faster. 1.8: Added support for other less used tabs for all functions. You can duplicate and make epics out of stories from the "done", "backlog", or "my work" sections in Pivotal. Additionally, fixes a bug that prevented duplication introduced by a recent change made to the backend interface of Pivotal. 1.9 Added support for PT's new UI. Unfortunately, dashboard internal support has been made very difficult, requiring a button next to the search bar. Also resolved a loading issue that slowed down use of Pivotal Tracker when large amounts of items were copied. Plans for future development: I intend to establish full hierarchies with epics; adding a story to an internal epic will include it as part of the epics containing it. It may even be possible to rearrange the hierarchies and shift around all the stories within those epics. However, I'm not sure if I'm going to make that within this application or a separate one, as it's beginning to stretch outside the scope of this ancient project.

  • (2013-10-24) Craig C: Duplicate works great. But it appears that the "make stories into Epics" doesn't work at all. Shame, I would have liked that feature.

  • (2019-01-22, v:1.9) Is Your Application Still Working?
    I don't see any options to split my stories into epics? Thanks, Dan
  • (2017-10-02, v:1.9) Richard Hooper: Split stories
    I ended up here because I was looking for a quick and easy way of splitting exiting stories up without copy and pasting, and while I don't think the extension, although a great idea, does what I want. The "split stories into epics" feature seems promising, in that I bet a bit of tweaking would deliver the goods. Any chance of that coming along in the future? E.g. "split this one task into its own story", something like that. Unless I'm missing something and PT does this on its own already?
  • (2015-03-27, v:1.8) Greg C: Not working
    After installing it, I'm not seeing any change to the UI. I've tried clearing cookies, refreshing and disabling AdBlock.
  • (2015-02-03, v:1.8) Jeff Wright: New PT UI?
    Does this work on the new PT UI?
  • (2014-01-21, v:1.7) Moriya Harpster: Duplicate feature
    The "duplicate" feature stopped working some time toward the end of last week. Is there a fix for this? Thank you!
  • (2014-01-08, v:1.6) Jonathan Ryder: Installation instructions?
    Hi, How do I install this app? Have installed into Chrome and menu items are appearing in PT, but stories aren't being duplicated. Jonathan
  • (2013-11-12, v:1.5) Nima Gardideh: Compatibility w/ new Pivotal Tracker
    Hey, Not sure if you know – but PT is launching a new version that's different in structure and UI. Your plugin no longer works with unfortunately. I'd love it if you built support for the new PT. Let me know if I can help!
