Customizing FixFor


We have quite a few in-house projects that change version number very frequently.  Developers decide when a fix will be applied, not those reporting the bug.

For us, the FixFor field would be a million times more useful if we could enter data into it without having to first create a new Release entry.  So that we could enter "v1.2.3.4".

This would also allow us to instantly do "what was broken in v1.2.3.4" reports.

Is there a way of customising the fixfor field so that we don't have to select from release entries?

Not currently in 3.0.  Sorry!  We'll consider it for a future version.

You could also use the Version field for this use.

Hi Michael,

we're currently using the version field for reporting the verson that first contained the bug.  I was just wanting to be able to have a searchable field that contained the version it was fixed in.

No matter.  If you do have a wishlist, please consider it a wish, meantime, FogBugz has already made my life so much easier, I can cope with this, thanks.
