About a year ago we added bug tracking functionality to Zoho Projects
to help software teams easily submit, track and fix bugs.
Fast forward to now, and we’re pretty happy with the uptake it has gotten among customers. Many people have tried it, used it and purchased it. Many people also shared with us their feedback and how we could better tailor it to meet their needs. We were frequently asked to have bug tracking as a separate, stand-alone product, decoupled from the rest of Zoho Projects – and to make it even more affordable.
So we took those requests to heart and today we’re launching Zoho BugTracker, a standalone product that helps teams fix bugs fast.
has all of the now-familiar features. For example, it makes submitting a bug report dead-simple. You can even attach screenshots or documents of the offending behavior for the team to analyze. BugTracker also allows teams to easily organize bugs and automatically change severity, priority or other data based on certain rules. And all of that is customizable to fit what you want to track.
Teams can keep tabs on the bugs and their progress. Reports and dashboards make it easy for team members to focus on what’s important for them. And just like in Zoho Projects, Zoho BugTracker displays the stream of the most recent activities and progress in the team.
But that’s not all. With this latest update, we’re also adding one very cool thing: GitHub integration. With it, you can link a GitHub repository to your Zoho BugTracker space. Code checked-in in Github, will be displayed as a changeset in BugTracker. If, while commiting the changes in Github you specified a bug ID, it will also be linked to that particular bug in your database. The GitHub integration should be up in about a week.
Express edition for Bug Tracker starts at $40 per month for an unlimited number of users. Includes submitting bugs through email, customer workflows, notifications, custom views and much more. You can upgrade to other plans to get business rules, custom fields and other very nice features.
