    Default Issue trackers and project schedulers (gantt charts)

    I'm doing some technical leading on a small team project and am leaning into the PM stuff as well in terms of assigning tasks and monitoring time spent, etc.

    The project owner previously acted in this role but is on-technical, we're discussing on tools to use as they basically would like a single gantt-style tool but developers would like an issue-tracker with git integration, automatic release notes, etc.

    I don't think there is a single tool which does issue management, time tracking and project scheduling/gantt, which is less work than doing it manually... Jira is a behemoth for instance.
    I'd welcome any general advice about the wisdom of trying to link all our tools Vs having a simple gantt manually updated against a simple issue-tracker.

    (we're talking 4-5 developers, currently using BitBucket and SmartSheet, all quite low-budget and small-scale)

    ServiceNow, SharePoint, Excel etc all do the job and will need a level of setting up as you would with Jira. To keep it really simple, use Excel.

    Have a look at Trello, has a number of plug-ins for time tracking. I've never done it but believe you can integrate with github.
