FEATURE REQUEST: FREQUENCY FIELD
I have been using Fogbugz for about 3 months now and I really like it. I especially like that the fields consist of only what is really needed (we don't even use the Estimate one), instead of the confusing mess that some other bug systems use. However, there is one glaring hole in the information available to programmers, and that is "How often does this bug occur? Is it Always, Occasional, Rare, etc.?". I really think an occurence frequency field should be added as this greatly influences the priority and is valuable information for the person fixing the bug. I'd boot the Estimate field and add Frequency. :) Of course, the tester could just indicate the frequency in the description, but we all know how tough that can be to achieve. A field makes it happen.
Also, about how often do new Fogbugz updates come out?
I hear ya. We'll consider adding that.
If frequency is a factor determining priority, is there a way you could merge the two? You can change the text for the priorities, so maybe you can just have them indicate the frequency somehow.
I guess I should have been a bit more clear. What I really am looking for I guess is "Repeatability". I.e. does the bug happen Always, Sometimes, or Rarely. That helps determine the seriousness of a bug. Obviously a bug that crashes the app Always, is worse than one that Rarely crashes it.
