Bug Tracking for Project Management Software

There is no development effort which doesn’t deal with bugs and mistakes during the project lifecycle. In fact, in some projects, the time spent on bug tracking and fixing bugs is as long as the time to develop the product for initial testing.

That is why in the Agile software development so important the testing and finding mistakes at the earliest stage of development.

In the project management software, tasks are assigned and tracked and most people are familiar with the process. But what happens when a task is not working properly? During testing always bugs are found. How to find, document, fix and keep track of these bugs effectively? Most online project management software vendors rely on comments on tasks to record bugs associated with a task. Or create new tasks for entering bugs. The problem with this is that it alters the project timeline. This process is very inefficient and unproductive and prone to mistakes in product development. Bug tracking Companies like Atlassian which markets Jira bug tracking software,

Most online project management software vendors rely on comments on tasks to record bugs associated with a task. Or create new tasks for entering bugs. The problem with this is that it alters the project timeline. This process is very inefficient and unproductive and prone to mistakes in product development. Bug tracking Companies like Atlassian which markets Jira bug tracking software, Bugzilla and Mantis, only provide half the solution needed by product development teams. They don’t connect project’s tasks to bugs found during testing related to those tasks.

 

There is an urgent need to tie tasks management and bug tracking in one unified application. Today, Binfire is introducing the most robust bug tracking application in the market. The new bug tracking tool ties tasks in the task management system to bugs in the bug tracking tool. In fact in the task dashboard, you can see all bugs attached to this task. In the bug tracking dashboard, you can see which task a bug is attached to. This is a powerful combination which helps product teams to keep track of bugs and them faster. It also brings up to the attention of the project manager and the developers which tasks have an excessive number of bugs. Having this knowledge, the management can fix the underlying problem in the product development much faster than otherwise.

Why Binfire’s bug tracking software is superior to other solutions out there you might ask? First and foremost, it is integrated into the task management application and as such it has access to all data in Binfire’s database related to that project. Unlike other bug reporting applications which don’t have any knowledge of the project’s data and status, our bug tracking is integrated closely with the task management software. Each bug has its own dashboard to capture, track and display all information relevant to it. The bug tracking dashboard has all features needed for product development during testing and product release. The features supported for each bug in the dashboard are listed below.

Bug Tracking Tool

  • A bug could be assigned a task or to multiple tasks
  • Could have documents attached to it
  • Multiple tags could be attached to a task
  • Commenting with reply and document attachment
  • Multi user assignments
  • Follow, to get notification on a task status
