When it comes to building and distributing software, both development and testing go hand in hand. To put that in project management terms, both tasks and bugs go hand in hand. A developer has a set of tasks to be ticked off before a feature can be released. And during the development stages, code issues are discovered either by the developer or by the tester and are logged as bugs. But the problem is that there’s no way to relate tasks and bugs, making it difficult to keep track of which bugs affect the completion of which tasks. Here is where we come in and give you our new Task and Bug Linking feature that couples your task management with bug tracking.
If you are a business owner, you more than likely have an app or are planning to launch one in the future. You create a project to bring your team together and brainstorm ideas. Your developers don their coding caps and get to work. Your designers create designs to see what works best. Your testers subject the app to several rounds of testing. Your app goes through stages of refinement before finally taking shape and being ready to use. Time to pack and go on a vacation! Until your app crashes.

Bring your team closer together
Here is a trend we see more and more when it comes to projects that are creative in nature: the best work gets done not through individual efforts, but by a group of people, collaboratively refining, reimagining and reinventing ideas. All the apps in the Docs suite come with several features that let such collaboration happen naturally. First and foremost, all these documents can be co-created; i.e. more than one person can work on them at the same time. You can chat with all the collaborators as you go, right within the document window. Getting feedback is easy; each letter in your text documents and each cell in your spreadsheets can be commented on. An inbuilt versioning system lets you view the changes a document has gone through, and if needed revert to an older version. Read more
You can now search users, projects and their contents in one place. The results come neatly organized in separate sections.
In the tasks view, we’ve added a column that just shows an arrow next to each task. A green arrow pointing downwards here indicates that the logged work hours so far, is less than the planned work hours. However, a red up arrow indicates that the logged hours have overshot the planned hours. Scanning through this column gives you a quick overview of how well your team is able to stick to plan.
