Good afternoon,

We use the very effective and customizable Pivotal Relationships
( This allows any documentation defects or requests to
reflect the process that software bugs undergo. It's got an extremely
flexible database management system, and I can always find what I'm looking
for via search fields or customized queries with ease. Once we got everyone
on board, it has definitely sped up the information gathering and
redistributing process. For example, it's much easier to generate release
notes for releases of our products--we just query the database for the
recently fixed issues and voila.

It definitely requires somebody with some database savvy, though, to
administrate. Hope that helps. Thanks. DB.

Do TWs use the bug tracking system as a source for troubleshooting or other
background knowledge? What kinds of software/databases do you use? Do you
think it saves the company time and money to use it as an information
repository? What is the simplest method and architecture to use a database
for this? Have you needed the services of a DBAdmin before?
