What is an
issue tracking system?

An issue tracker is a tool in which product defects that come up during product development and testing or product bugs in the form of customer tickets are logged and monitored until they are resolved.

Importance of
issue tracking software
to handle bugs


Excel sheets can be great, but they have their limits. Manually keeping track of who is taking care of what, which bugs are critical, and when severe bugs are due can simply be too much when you’re logging hundreds of bugs each day. Have you been reporting your bugs over email? Information can easily get lost in the chaos of our inboxes, and lost data is worse than no data. You’ll often end up wading through a mountain of emails to find some crucial information.

With an exclusive issue tracker tool, all your questions can be answered in minutes, allowing your team to focus on what really needs your attention—fixing high-priority bugs.

Key features of issue tracking tool

Prioritize bugs

When there are multiple issues that crop up in product development, you may have to prioritize issues so that the bugs that need immediate attention are taken up and fixed first. With an issue tracker, you can create custom views for bugs or work on them according to their level of severity.

Bug status tracking

Depending on your team or industry, issues can go through various stages. An issue track software allows you to build customized issue statuses to convey specific project requirements and track software issues and status timelines with ease.

Bug reports

Project issue tracking tools are incomplete without detailed reports on the bugs and their progress. Such analytics help teams understand which bugs take the longest, which are the most common issues, how to address a specific issue better, or how to eliminate bottlenecks.

Time tracking

Time tracking is crucial to issue management as issues are expected to be fixed within a specified time frame according to their intensity. Issue track applications help users record work hours through timesheets or timers to bill customers or for payroll.
