Bug Tracking

Track bugs, features & defect iterations & priority. A major component of a bug tracking system is a database that records facts about known bugs. Thus Ganib has introduced a Bug Tracking form where you can make a record of the bugs and sort them according to the priority. These Bug Tracking forms can be also copied from the Project to your Business space.

 

Bug tracking is a process used by quality assurance personnel and programmers to keep track of software problems and resolutions.
 

A bug tracking system is normally put in place to store information about reported bugs. This type of issue-tracking system provides a clear, centralized overview of development requests and their corresponding states.Bug tracking systems include a database, which keeps track of facts pertaining to each bug.
 
These facts might include the time a bug was reported, its severity, incorrect program behavior, details on how to recreate the bug,who reported the bug and what the programmers did to fix it. Bug tracking systems are associated with a bug’s life cycle, which is tracked through the status assigned to each bug. This allows administrators to set permissions based on a bug’s status, move bugs to other statuses or delete them.
 

The main benefit of a bug-tracking system is to provide a clear centralized overview of development requests (including both bugs and improvements, the boundary is often fuzzy), and their state. The prioritized list of pending items (often called backlog) provides valuable input when defining the product road map, or maybe just “the next release”.

In a corporate environment, a bug-tracking system may be used to generate reports on the productivity of programmers at fixing bugs.
 

However, this may sometimes yield inaccurate results because different bugs may have different levels of severity and complexity. The severity of a bug may not be directly related to the complexity of fixing the bug. There may be different opinions among the managers and architects.
 

Ganib helps you in maintaining a record for your found bugs by creating a list with the help of Lists.
By using Ganib’s chat and other features, you can easily convey them to your developers and have an immediate fix on the catastrophic or serious high priority bugs.
