Bug Tracking

Use bug tracker template for bug reports to have all the information well-structured in one place. Identify who is responsible for fixing the bug, and when, assign the bug to the person responsible, set a deadline or schedule the task to have all the bugs resolved.

This template is great for its purpose because we have already picked the views and fields that really matter. For example, two fields unique to this template are Customer Impact and Source which will allow to prioritize bug fixes in the queue as well as know the source that has identified each bug. The template includes only the views you really need – Task List (read: Bug List!), Table, Summary, and the Board. The Kanban board in this project template is one of our users’ favorites, because it visualizes the bug queue and allows to quickly update statuses by simply dragging and dropping items into a different column

Who uses Bug Tracking Software?

When you are launching a new software or testing the software to get ready for launch, it is natural that the software will get bombarded with a lot of bugs and issues.  Typically, bug tracking tools are integrated into other project management tools, such as GoodDay.

A bug tracking tool is usually an important aspect of a software development infrastructure.  The consistent use of bug tracking software can be considered as one of the characteristics of a good software development team. 

Bug and issue tracking tools make it easy for teams, management teams, project teams, and digital companies to get a great view of where every bug is in the development stage workflow. 

The Benefits of using Bug Tracking Software

Bugs and software issues are responsible for massive costs, both in lost revenue and hours wasted digging through logs. With the right bug tracking tool, it is not necessary to dig through bug logs for hours. 

Bugs are part of any software development process, this will never change. As software projects grow in features, they will also grow in complexity which leads to more bugs in the system. Bug tracking software will allow you to capture, log, and prioritize the bugs that need to be fixed. This will make your life easier and will save a lot of time and money. 

Another great benefit of bug tracking software is the smooth communication between developers and testers. Not only is the communication much smoother on a system like this, but bug tracking software allows software companies to prioritize their tasks. It can be vital that the more critical software errors need to be fixed first and then the minor bugs later.
