Some Thoughts on Bug Tracking from our Blog…

We've put in the time researching bug tracking to help create the simplest possible workflow for you to get work done. From time-to-time we even blog about some of our ideas around this optimal bug tracking process…

  • Tagging is Dangerously Messy

    Tagging can work well for personal sites like bookmarking or photos, but when you introduce it into a group setting for software that tracks issues, things can get ugly.

  • Tips for Effectively Reporting Bugs and Issues

    Reporting bugs and issues is all about clear communication. It's difficult to know exactly what help, but there are some basic guidelines to keep in mind.

  • Tracking More than Bugs

    Software projects need to track more than bugs, and Sifter was explicitly designed to be flexible enough for tracking bugs, issues, questions, and just about anything you need.

  • Issues & Resolution Tracking

    It's easy to close issues, but by ensuring you and your team always enter detailed resolutions, you can make it easier on yourselves down the road.

  • Why "On Hold" is Evil

    It might be tempting to want to put issues "On Hold", but in reality, this is the digital equivalent of sweeping things under the rug. It will invariably come back to haunt you.

  • Bug & Issue Tracking

    For some large teams or huge software projects, complexity is a necessary evil, but for the vast majority of software projects simplicity is the key to productivity and participation.
