"We explored the problem and developed a solution."
Or something like that.
Seriously ... "troubleshot" seems awkward, so I would just find a more elegant way to word whatever I was trying to say.

:D

Oh, and I just checked a couple of credible on-line dictionaries; they all say "troubleshot" is the past tense.

OK gang. It's not even Friday, but here's something to rattle your cages early.
What's the past tense of "troubleshoot"?
Normally, the past tense of "shoot" is "shot" as in "I shot the gun".
But while I'm reasonably certain that "troubleshooted" is wrong, "troubleshot" just doesn't seem correct either.
I think I'll have another drink, bartender.
