Customisable so you can add you own fields and track in a way suited to your processes. Searching is very flexible, each field can be searched against. Fix dates and versions allow you see easily when an issue was resolved. (assuming the Devs correctly filled it in). You can link cases together so if there is connection you can see the related cases in a panel at the side. 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. You can set yourself to be email updated on case changes and updates. Hosted service , so no updates to apply, servers to upgrade and maintain.

Saves time and is simple - great web based bug/project tracking software for a midsized team. I don't have to worry about Fogbugz moving features around. Customer support is good. I like the case, task, and subtasking abilities and how Fogbugz displays these in list form. Fogbugz has always been more list-based than panel-based(like Jira) which I think works when you have a huge amount of tasks or a very large team. When running a team of about 5 people I can see each person's name and a list of which tasks/bugs each person is working on. It's also easy to add custom fields and set up workflows with the custom fields.

Main benefits were the ability to log and track bugs through a development cycle. We also used it for features. The ability to add sub cases to each issue was usefulEase 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

We've been using FogBugz for issue tracking through 8 releases of our engineering software with a team spread over 3 continents. Anyone can open an issue, including virtual users per email. From there we have a modified Kanban setup that tracks the issue from backlog to current release MustDo, WIP, InQA, Done, assigning it along the way to the various players. 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. A couple of times we have needed technical support and FogCreek was there immediately. We have evaluated other options once or twice but have not found anything tempting. Costs a bit but worth the money.

For relatively small teams it is easy to track bugs, it's much more effective than email. Logging bugs and feature requests is pretty easy with Fogbugz. It's then easy to track and search for existing cases. Assigning bugs to staff is easy and helps keep track of progress.

As a previous company we used this software as a suto-CRM type of system for project management / customer service. We would create unique support email addresses for each of our clients and they would email that address to create new cases within their own project. It was handy that things were able to consolidated to each project. It was nice to be able to make notes and send emails directly from cases.

Fogbugz helped us organize a strong web development process. I used the application to communicate feature changes and bugs to the developers.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.

Really great issue tracking softwareSimple to use and great for tracking bugs and issues. Most systems seem to be over complicated and do way to much. This focuses on the core of what is needed and doesn't get in the way.

Keeps current issues organized better than e-mail. If everyone got on board to use it, I think it would be very beneficial. Able to filter the cases and save any way that works for you. Web interface is rather easy to navigate.

There are an excellent project management, issue tracking and great support. With this service, you will always keep everything under control. Know how much time is left for the whole project or how long it takes to develop a new function. Also, do not worry about security. You can log in using access is SSH or HTTPS.

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). Everything about day-to-day usage is wonderful. Quick to enter cases, quick to manage, easy to search. Especially love the keyboard shortcuts.
