Before you get too deep into that champagne, take some time to reflect, honor, and celebrate all the big and small wins you’ve made throughout the past year!

Imagine how much more you could get done if your project management software didn't make you sigh. Shortcut is the ideal solution for task management, bug tracking, iteration planning, and reporting. Whether you're a startup that iterates quickly by providing every engineer with a free pallet of Red Bull, or a large org that has strict ship dates to hit, delight the scrum gods and give us a try.
Thanks again to all of you — the makers, early adopters, and product lovers in the community — for so many amazing highlights in what has been another wild year. We can’t wait to see what you’ve got for us in 2022. We’ve got plenty coming for you too.
