Leading Provider of Collaboration, Development, and Issue Tracking Software : Atlassian
Issue tracking is a generic term that can mean all things to everyone. In a business context, from complaint management to IT help desk to scheduled building maintenance, what we define as an issue can refer to any task or activity occurring in an ordinary day’s work. When an issue has consequences or time sensitivity or relevance to business success, tracking how it is resolved takes on a more considerable significance. An issue tracking system allows you to rapidly access answers and information and maintain a dashboard monitoring the history of issues and solutions, creating reports, monitoring, and sharing far more effectively. You can monitor any action that has been taken on the subject. Once an issue has been submitted, you need to know who is responsible for solving the query. If it needs to be escalated or dealt with by another department, the issue tracking software will show the query’s status, the project ‘ownership,’ and prevent a complex issue from getting lost.
