No software leaves beta in perfect, bug-free condition. No matter how diligently you've combed through your application, somewhere, at some point, a user is going to uncover a bug or run into an issue that goes beyond the usual "user-error" error. Then another report will come in, followed by another, then another. The only way to save your product and company's reputation is to track those issues and resolve them as quickly as you can. Step One: Start using YouTrack!
YouTrack is a web-based, keyboard-centric application designed to help you track bugs and other technical issues. Instead of wasting time wrestling with the software, YouTrack gives you the easiest way to enter issues, search for issues, and navigate between issues! Handy hotkey combos let you gracefully move through the list of priorities, and an even handier search box lets you zip right to what you're seeking -- just type queries and YouTrack delivers!
As any developer knows, sometimes a whole host of issues and bugs crop up due to a single corrupt file or line of code. Instead of staying late and marking a bunch of issues as resolved one at a time, just use YouTrack to modify multiple issues at once! And because it's web-based, you can even use a bookmarklet to post new bugs, tasks, and features without even opening YouTrack!
YouTrack also allows you to define attributes according to what you need to see in bug reporting -- complexity, operating system, and so on, and make it so that certain attributes are visible to everyone, or just to the people who need to know that level of detail! Same thing goes for tags -- create tags to define and clarify things precisely to how your organization functions! YouTrack may not fix your software's bugs for you, but it makes it a whole lot easier!
Please note: YouTrack is available in 3 editions, all of which are discounted today. Functionality is the same, but each edition allows for differing amounts of users and concurrent projects. Also, the Enterprise Edition includes LDAP support. Click over to the YouTrack website for more details.
