Anyone who has been involved in defect tracking knows that it can be a challenging process. Clear communication, collaboration, and top-notch organization are required in order to resolve defects in a timely manner. During the lifecycle of a defect, teams may find it challenging to keep track of its status, or even know when it is deployed.

Defect tracking with OneDesk

OneDesk’s new issue tracking and management application makes the defect tracking process easier. Here’s a look at how to create issues in OneDesk and stay on top of all defects assigned to you.

How to create an issue in the issues/tasks application:

defect tracking 1

  • Click the issues/tasks button at the top of the interface (1). If you do not see this button, add it by clicking the show/hide tabs button (2) and selecting the issues/task application.
  • Once in the issues/tasks view, click create issue/task (3).
  • Name the issue (4).
  • Click on the drop-down arrow next to the name, and select issue (5).
  • Assign it to a sharespace by clicking the drop-down arrow in the sharespace field (6).
  • Save it (7).

This can also be done from the issues/tasks view within a sharespace.

You can also create an issue from a feedback. This allows the issue to be traced back to its original request.
