After spending some time reviewing various defect management tools such as Jira, ALM, Mantis, Bugzilla, etc. I decided I wanted something simple that would allow: -
- Free (always useful)
- Online Collaboration
- Card count
- Card numbers
- Easily Adaptable
Being a big fan of Trello I spent a bit of time investigating its potential. There seemed to be a call for something similar to this in various blogs/forums so I managed to create the below template:
It does have it’s pitfalls:
- No reporting
- although the point of the board is that it’s a live dashboard
- Security - if you need to share defect information that may contain secure data you will need to check the Trello (free tier) security policy
- Uploading data is limited to 10mb
- this in my opinion is still a lot but maybe a Google Drive folder can facilitate doc sharing etc.
Please copy the board and adapt to support your needs. I hope it will be of use to the wider community and please feedback using the feedback board found here.
