Manage all the problems that you may have and solve them

2018-05-06

Pros

This software FogBugz is some kind of well-realized symbiosis of bug-tracking and task management systems.

Cons

Sometimes it is very important to find the previous bug and look deeply in it in order to faster understand what is going on in the present on, but in this software, it is not so easy to do.

Fogbugz is a strong bug tracking tool

2018-06-11

I used the application to communicate feature changes and bugs to the developers.

Pros

I found Fogbugz to be very flexible and easy to use once I was able to understand its interface. It offers a lot of customization and additional features such as a wiki and user forums.

Cons

Its interface is not as well polished as many other bug tracking or project managing applications.

Software for tracking errors

2018-03-31

Pros

It's great to work on this topic and create an interesting interface. For small teams, this is an excellent platform with which to track errors more effectively than with e-mail.

Cons

I would like there to have functions to track each of our customers and their information.

Excellent for tracking projects and bugs

2018-05-20

Saves time and is simple - great web based bug/project tracking software for a midsized team.

Pros

I like the case, task, and subtasking abilities and how Fogbugz displays these in list form.

Cons

Fogbugz has looked the same for years, which is good for people who have used it for a long time, but it is hard to get new users/employees excited about using Fogbugz or to really believe in its modern capabilities.

Easy to use bug tracking system that allows users to log bugs and features with priority levels

2017-11-28

Main benefits were the ability to log and track bugs through a development cycle.

Pros

Ease of use, no real training required Allows you to add your own custom fields Easily tag bugs that will be fixed for a certain version set suitable priority levels for each bug Can filter using any field Can log features, bugs and tasks

Cons

The search is difficult to use once you have large amounts of data, especially if bugs dont have suitable titles No real project management options Not suitable for estimating/planning of bug fixing in agile cant write as complicated queries as you can in other software

Trace project and errors

2018-05-24

Pros

Another important advantage is that all participants of the workflow will immediately get known about any changes and updates made to the project. Talking about custom support, they are very responsive to any questions regarding FOGBUGZ.

Cons

Although the product is worth attention, the price is somewhat high.In general, the interface can be complicated, especially if you work on mobile devices, so I would like to have some application for the program.

Tracking bugs made easy

2017-11-06

For relatively small teams it is easy to track bugs, it's much more effective than email.

Pros

Logging bugs and feature requests is pretty easy with Fogbugz.

Cons

If people do not log bugs correctly there can be various duplicates. This may be user error but it could be improved when logging a case to show potential duplicates.

Great software for our IT department

2018-04-09

The ability to track and report bugs within our web portal is very important.

Pros

Very simple way to target a bug and track it's solution.

Cons

It's a expensive product but is worth every penny if you're in IT and operate web-pages and or user interfaces.

Wouldn't want to live without it.

2016-12-27

Anyone can add notes, thoughts, suggestions at any stage and there is time-tracking, which, combined with the excellent searching and viewing features, allow us to report hours spent per task or project area, numbers of opened, resolved, closed issues per person, etc.

Unorthodox Use Proved to be a Challenge

2018-08-20

Pros

As a previous company we used this software as a suto-CRM type of system for project management / customer service.

Cons

Granted we used it in a method not what it is designed for, but it still had a cumbersome navigation system.

Really great issue tracking software

Pros

Simple to use and great for tracking bugs and issues.

Cons

Really not much of a con but it does have some features that are nice for larger teams but not needed for smaller. Not really a problem though.

Really easy to use and efficient bug tracking system.

Cons

There isn't a lot of depth to the program so I wonder why it isn't simply part of another solution out there.

Tracking, logging and updating development issues with ease

2017-12-21

Pros

You can make parent and child cases so if you can feature that can be broken into lots of sub tasks or features this is then easy to see.

Cons

Searches can be save but your 'default' preference cannot be. e..g if you usually only want to find bugs not search through features this has to be selected everytime. Recent updates have made the screen a bit cluttered compared to the previews views, although this could be due to not being used to the layout compared to previous versions.

Gorgeous bug inspection

2018-05-13

Pros

The importance to be able to see if bugs are already raised or not was taken into account. This tool saves your time and takes care of all the errors and problems that can appear.

Cons

The user interface wasn't the most attractive by modern design standards.

Fairly useful tool to track issues

2017-06-07

Keeps current issues organized better than e-mail. If everyone got on board to use it, I think it would be very beneficial.

Pros

Able to filter the cases and save any way that works for you. Web interface is rather easy to navigate.

Cons

I think it gets a little confusing when a single issue spans across multiple groups. Sometimes permissions to groups cause issues. To be effective, everyone must use it otherwise things can be forgotten.

Excellent for small businesses

2015-11-29

We've used FogBugz for years and were extremely happy with it. Unfortunately we switched away when we grew and personally I'm very unhappy with the switch (to JIRA). FogBugz is great for day-to-day users. Entering cases is very straightforward, as is organizing and searching for them. It has a very user friendly simple search and a great advanced search (really thanks to Lucene).

Pros

Quick to enter cases, quick to manage, easy to search.

Cons

Price. It's great for small teams but once you grow past a few dozen users, it gets very expensive.
