Census is a highly scalable Web-based tool for bug tracking and defect tracking that makes it easy to manage project-related issues such as bugs, defects, feature requests, development tasks, support calls, and much more.
Role-based Workflow - Census provides powerful workflow technology that can be customized to your specific business requirements. Automate the tracking and management of bugs through the stages of your process. Define the different states (such as New, Assigned, Fixed). Create rules for transitions between states. Define dependent fields to simplify data entry and automate process rules. Ensure that changes in bug status and ownership follow your business processes.
E-mail notifications - keep team members, users and management in the loop with automatic e-mail notifications. Define custom "when rules" to trigger e-mail notifications when an issue is logged or updated, when a field changes, or when a field is set to a specific value.
Reports and Metrics - pre-defined and ad-hoc reports let you measure project status, progress, and goals. Census includes more than 45 pre-built reports that provide summary, detailed, and trend information. Point-and-click report editors make report building fast and easy. Build custom reports and charts and publish them on the Web using today's leading report writer, Crystal Reports.
Customization - easily adapt Census to your organization's process and terminology. Use point-and-click editors to customize fields. Brand Census with your company logo and colors. Generate custom Web views for different users. For example, different Web views for customers, developers, and QA.
Version Control Integration - enjoy the advantages of team coordination and version tracking directly from your bug tracking tool. Access centralized Visual SourceSafe databases through a Web browser. Check source files in and out, get the latest/previous versions, undo changes, and view change histories, all through a Web browser.
