Creating FogBugz Trial Account



You can try out FogBugz On-Demand (cloud) version by registering for a 14-days trial (demo) version (no credit card required). At the end of the trial, you can make your account permanent (non-trial) by purchasing one of the available subscriptions.

The FogBugz Trial version has all features activated, with the following limitations:

  • Maximum 500 users per account.
  • Maximum 5 email notifications per day.

This article provides step-by-step instructions to create and activate such a trial account.



There are two ways to register:


Creating Trial Account from the Web Site 

  1. A new user can subscribe to a free 14-day trial. This is hosted by FogBugz and there is no need for installation. Click on the Start a Free Trial button in the top right corner of the site. FogBugz_LandingPage.jpg

  7. Once the account is created, it will load the Kanban board of your account with a few default cases already added by our initialization engine. These cases you can use to play around with FogBugz, or you can just remove them.Fogbugz_Trial_Kanban_board.png


Creating Trial Account from the FogShop Website
