Frequently Asked Questions
By creating an issue template in Backlog, the same information is documented for each bug. Teams can even automate this process, creating bug tracking issues automatically from support emails. Backlog’s project management tools then enable software team leaders to manage developers’ workloads, track the progress of bug fixes, and report on outcomes.
But where Backlog really shines is in the platform's ability to facilitate code and task management in one central platform. Teams can review code together in Backlog, viewing differences and exchanging inline comments to debate and verify the effectiveness of proposed remedies. Once everyone is happy with the new code, developers can merge new code directly from Backlog, completing an efficient process that allows teams to capture, work on, and complete all bug tracking from one platform.

When developers finish their code, they can tag their teammates for review. Team members can exchange inline comments, use Backlog’s difference viewer to understand what’s changed, and share proposed changes or feedback with each other. This dramatically streamlines the code review process while creating a centralized record of all discussions. Once everyone is happy with the resolution, the new code can be merged into the existing codebase directly from Backlog.
Not all bugs are created equal: some should be resolved as soon as possible, while others are less pressing. Teams can tag their most important issues as high-priority tasks in Backlog, flagging to developers that these should be tackled first. Leaders can use Backlog to assess their team’s current workloads and assign new issues to those best equipped to resolve them.
