Detect to Correct: 9 Bug Tracking Tools for Smooth Workflow

What is Bug Tracking?

Where to Start?

  • External reporting. After you have created the application, you can find out from the user focus group what exactly is working incorrectly and where to start repairing.
  • Internal reporting. Before you release a complete application or a piece of software, you have to run internal testing. During this process, QAs and developers will examine each piece of code and find existing bugs and inaccuracies.

How Should a Bug Report Be Written?

  • What makes a bug. Here you can use the screenshot and workflow. When the recording is made, try to make date markers so that you don’t correct something that someone on your team has already fixed.
  • Set priorities. If a particular bug may lead to something severe like a fire in the office or destruction of all the data, you should deal with it first. Here comes the prioritization of bugs.
