    Default Bug Tracking / Wish List System

    Greetings,

    This might be a bit more aimed at those that are commercial developers, but... has anybody attempted to create a Bug Tracking System or some sort of Wish List/New Feature Request Tracking System in Alpha Five?

    Regards,
    Keith

    I have heard that Alpha is working on such a beast, but I have no details. There is a lengthly wish list at the bottom of this forum, and wishes do get added to the software on occassion.

    Steve,

    Thanx for the post. I guess I could have been a bit more specific. I'm looking for something that I could implement for myself to help keep track of my efforts and requests from clients for changes to my program. While I've seen many programs available commercially and some are very expensive, I would like to have something written in Alpha5 if one exists.

    I bet every developer has been thinking about building this, me included. I would use it to replace the Report a Bug on the control panel menu in my applications. I could then distinguish between an Alpha bug, and one caused by my application, before sending it on to Alpha if necessary. You could at least provide menu items in your app that started an email with the subject "Wish list" or "Bug".

    Default Re: Bug Tracking / Wish List System

    I know this is an old thread but I’m wondering if there is a bug tracking/wish list application that someone has already designed that will work with Alpha Anywhere. I think that this is something that every developer could use and it would be a good idea to come bundled as a sample application. Has one been created?

    Features that I'm looking for:
    - Logins
    - Support for rich text would be a plus
    - Support for images. Best is to support in-line with copy-paste or drag-n-drop, but attachments would suffice.
    - Email notifications
    - Mobile support not required
