About FogBugz

FogBugz is an integrated web-based project management system featuring bug/issue tracking, discussion forums, wikis, customer relationship management, and evidence based scheduling developed by Fog Creek Software.

The feature tracker allows users to manage, filter, sort and navigate a tree-structure of tasks, that contain information, tags and attached files related to a particular issue. Discussion forums and wikis may be created around any topic and posts/pages may be added into the same. Users may integrate their email accounts into the system to send/receive email and create issues regarding the same.

Prediction of future tasks and completion estimation of future milestones are based upon past records of user performance. Users must manually input an estimated duration for every task, and state the task they are currently working on which builds a daily work log (timesheet) that may be reviewed later.

  • We've used FogBugz for years and were extremely happy with it. Unfortunately we switched away when we grew and personally I'm very unhappy with the switch (to JIRA). FogBugz is great for day-to-day users. Entering cases is very straightforward, as is organizing and searching for them. It has a very user friendly simple search and a great advanced search (really thanks to Lucene).

    Pros : Everything about day-to-day usage is wonderful. Quick to enter cases, quick to manage, easy to search. Especially love the keyboard shortcuts.

    Cons : Price. It's great for small teams but once you grow past a few dozen users, it gets very expensive.

  • What do you like best?

    Plugin system is good. Support is quick to answer emails.

    What do you dislike?

    Overly simplistic, buggy (not overly so but enough to be annoying), inability to save drafts, and I absolutely disagree with their philosophy of combining severity and priority.

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    If you find it limiting, attempt to code plugins to work around the limitations so that it fits your needs. Would be a good opportunity to offer a developer a pet-project to flex his/her skills, or perhaps a capable intern.

    What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

    At a previous company we used FogBugz to track bugs and partially to handle support requests. For how my team used it, we were able to work efficiently enough, though we were hindered by its overly simplistic nature and bugs at times.

  • FogBugz Use Cases and Deployment ScopeWe are currently using FogBugz for our internal Production, Development, and Project Management teams. It is serves as a light weight task management system to move/track jobs between departments. it is effectively a virtual job jacket for our creative agency. We introduced the tool to support our teams with tracking fast moving jobs and keeping individuals accountable for responsibilities for a given job. It also helps team member transitions and coverage by showing a quick summary of the job history. We selected the tool for it's simplicity, flexibility and ease of management because it would be used company wide accommodating varying experience levels of task management literacy.

    Pros : Simplicity: Compared to other tools like JIRA and even Bugzilla, FogBugz minimizes the number of fields. The general workflow and status' of a given task works well for us. (Assigned, Resolved, and Closed).Flexibility: The List views are highly customizable. This allows for many ways to display information and create custom lists for teams and departments. It has prebuilt queries, and basic boolean syntax that you can Stitch together to build a list.Easy to maintain: There are just two types of

    Cons : The simplicity of a single admin type user is not great because anyone who can create a job or client in the system, can also add and delete users. Content and User administrative rights should be separated.There are ways to change the terminology/lexicon within the tool, but we are not able to get it to work even after reaching out to tech support. So we are forced to use the system terminology that doesn't match up to our company making training a bit difficult.There is a subscribe function th
