The best bug tracking software allows for your entire team to collaborate and work together. It is essentially an agile project management tool built for a development team, allowing for all aspects of a software development project to be logged and tracked. From user stories and new features to bugs and issues, the best issue tracking tools should provide a holistic view of the entire project.
FogBugz for bug tracking
In addition to scrum and Kanban boards, the entire project backlog is maintained within FogBugz so teams collaborate better to plan and deliver across new features and open issues. Bugs are easily logged without having to go through extensive workflows and unnecessary processes.
The founder of Trello and Stackoverflow, Joel Spolsky built FogBugz so development teams could maximize the time spent on creative code writing and minimize the effort in management overhead
Log and track bugs and open issues
Bugs and issues are referred to as cases within FogBugz. You can easily create cases to capture bugs and issues and enter details relevant to the issue such as description, screenshot, version and priority. Unlike other bug tracking software Fogbugz does not use severity and instead uses a global priority scheme across all projects, bugs, and features, so that all team members can always work down their list of cases in order of priority.
Having bug submitters enter severity and priority of a bug would increase the amount of thought and work it takes to enter and manage that bug. We have minimized the number of fields end users have to deal with when entering data across FogBugz. Reducing data entry, combined with process and workflows makes FogBugz perfect for high-performing teams looking to optimize their development process by increasing team velocity and output.
Adding sub cases to bugs and issues
You can add subcases to existing bugs you’re tracking to create a logical flow of open issues.
Stay organized by adding tags to cases
FogBugz lets you keep your bug tracking organized by adding tags to cases and wiki articles. Easily create filter views to get a listing of all tagged cases.
Notifications and Alerts
With FogBugz you will always be on top of cases and bugs assigned to you. You will see notifications for assignments and modifications. If a new case is opened or bug is captured, you will be notified of it, in addition to any changes made to wiki articles that you’ve subscribed to.
