Tasktop's CollabNet integration provides seamlessly integrated access to CollabNet artifacts from any Eclipse-based IDE or the Tasktop Pro rich desktop client. Tasktop leverages the capabilities of CollabNet Desktop and Eclipse Mylyn, and provides additional integration for web browsing, calendars and email. Tasktop Pro also provides automated time tracking features for generating reports of time spent on each CollabNet task. Supported CollabNet products include CollabNet TeamForge, ScrumWorks Pro, Project Tracker, and IssueZilla.
Tasktop Pro provides the missing link between project management in CollabNet TeamForge and development activities performed in the Eclipse Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Tasktop seamlessly plugs into any Eclipse-based IDE and provides integrated access to CollabNet, making it effortless for developers to keep CollabNet up-to-date and providing unprecedented project status visibility for team leads. Tasktop is the enterprise version of the popular Eclipse Mylyn productivity framework and is also available as a standalone application for non-technical users.
Tasktop brings relevant CollabNet issues or tasks into the Eclipse IDE, eliminating the need to constantly switch between the IDE, web browser, and change notifications in an email client. Tasktop’s task-focused interface technology automatically tracks and shows only the source code, web pages and documents are most relevant for a given task. This dramatically reduces time spent repeatedly searching and scrolling to find the information needed to complete a task. When returning to a task after an interruption, a single click instantly restores the workspace and editors to their previous state. This enables developers to multitask and recover from interruptions with a single click, resulting in measurable productivity gains.
