How to use Workast to track bugs

“Don’t worry if it doesn’t work right.  If everything did, you’d be out of a job.” (Mosher’s Law of Software Engineering)

Bugs happen.  Having a clear system in place to report, track and correct helps streamline the fix process, reducing user impact and allowing your team to focus on the fix, not the process.

Organizing your Bug Tracking space

  • Create a space for bug tracking.  Make sure you invite all needed team members!
  • Add lists in your space to coordinate your tasks more effectively.

Adding your bug tasks

  • If you are tracking your tasks in an external spreadsheet, you can easily import them from a CSV file.
  • Create tags help label you task clearly.  We use tags to identify the severity of bugs (low, medium, high) as well as to identify the portion of the app affected by the bug.  

 

Making bug squashing simple

  • Add descriptions in your tasks to clarify what the issue is, or what you are fixing.
  • Use our Bitbucket and Github integrations for your pull requests.  
  • Subtasks are perfect to break down your bug task into the smaller steps for each member of your dev team.
