Check out this short video to have a short and quick visual introduction about the main features of FogBugz.


Add cases, fast

FogBugz gets out of your way so you can get what’s in your brain - be it bugs or features - into FogBugz, as fast as possible. There is an Add Case option right in the grid view, which allows you to quickly outline projects and even to add subcases.

The case is the basic unit in FogBugz.
The full case view lets you fill in all of the details about the case.

Group cases into projects, view them with filters

FogBugz admins can add as many projects as you need to organize cases. Use filters to drill down into the cases within a project. The great thing about filters is that you can set them up any way you want, pivoting on cases in a way that makes sense for a particular project (or across all projects).


Pro tip: you can even use filters to set up reports based on FogBugz data.

Code commits directly in cases

What’s the big deal about being able to see commit messages directly within cases? Context. When a changeset from Kiln shows up directly within a FogBugz case, you are much closer to knowing when that fix will be visible to customers.

Use Kiln for managing Distributed Version Control Systems (DVC). We support Mercurial and Git.

And integrate them with your FogBugz cases as we stated above.
