Good bug tracking with Sharepoint? [closed]

Good bug tracking with Sharepoint? [closed]

At my place of work, it has been decided to move many processes to Sharepoint. I'm now looking into how Sharepoint can be used for bug tracking (à la Mantis, FogBugz etc. but within Sharepoint). Specifically, we're using a collaboration room and the solution must work inside that.

"Not sure if the template you mentioned was from here.. ""SharePoint Templates""

SharePoint can be a challenge but does offer some great tools once you understand it. I belive it is one of the most challenging MS products I have seen but it is also very powerful. Have you checked Codeplex for SharePoint? Codeplex"

"Our team has used the MS SP bug tracking template on two projects. I would not consider the solution 'best of breed,' but it does work. You are able to add and remove fields as required, have a conversation with date stamps (using comments), and apply security (view/read/write). You can import and export the bug list to/from Excel.

Workflow can be added but it requires a developer (or a SP super user). The default configuration includes history tracking amd files attachments. As with any SP object, you can setup RSS feeds and e-mail notifications.

Given the choice, I would use a dedicated bug tracking package rather than the free solution offered by Microsoft. I haven't looked, but I'm sure that there are more complete bug tracking solutions that use SP as the back end."
