The default workflow in FogBugz is pretty simple:
- Assign a case to someone.
- When they resolve the case, it gets assigned back to you.
- Verify & Close the case or Reactivate it.
- Rinse and repeat.
You can customize the default workflow using the Workflow Plugin, which will let you change the person who gets assigned a case for a particular status. However, sometimes you want to be able to move a case between various steps, e.g.
Dev → QA → Production
We wanted to make it easier for FogBugz users to visualize this kind of linear workflow, so we wrote a simple BugMonkey script that shows you the workflow at the top of the case and gives you a button to click to go directly to the next step. Here’s a quick video walkthrough:
This is a really simple way to add workflow to your cases and shows how powerful BugMonkey can be to customize FogBugz. Get the script and add it to FogBugz via My Settings > Customizations.
