Project features and settings

Use of projects in BugDigger is optional but has many benefits:

  • You can associate web sites with a project. This applies globally so users reporting bugs found on your web sites do not need to know where the bug report should go.

  • Any user can report a bug without need to have an account on your issue tracker or to sign-in to BugDigger.

  • Bug reports can be automatically emailed to any email address or submitted to an external issue tracker.

  • You can collect bug reports via RSS/Atom feed.

Note: Use of projects in BugDigger is optional. Associating an external issue tracker with your BugDigger subscription you've automatically enabled all users on your external projects.
