Step away from your spreadsheet, get a visual bug tracker
A favorite of every project manager, one list to track everything ...
with extra tabs to track other stuff. Spreadsheets are great for many
things but they are not ideal for tracking website bugs and change
requests. They become an unruly mess of lists and tabs, hidden columns
and half complete rows. Keeping all the information up to date becomes a
full time job and eventually something falls through the cracks.
Relying on spreadsheets to manage all that information is an open
invitation to a communication breakdown. At some point information will
not be updated, data will get out of sync and people will stop using the
spreadsheet because it becomes too difficult to keep track of
everything, exactly what it was supposed to fix.

Three tips for better bug tracking
I recently stumbled across an old blog post by Joel Spolsky titled "Painless Bug Tracking". Even though the article was written in 2000 (eons ago in the internet age) it has a lot of valuable content for today's web developers with regards to bug tracking. For those who don't know Joel (of Trello fame) he has been in the software business for a long time. Joel's team at Fog Creek developed Fogbuz, one of the earliest bug tracking systems I can remember.
What can web developers (and entire web teams: designers, QA, content) learn from a blog post written in 2000 ... a lot.
PageProofer is happy to announce an upgrade to our email notification system. In addition to sending email digests to users as notes and comments are added you can now specify a unique email address that will receive a notification each time a note is added. This is a great way to setup quick integrations through systems like IFTTT and Zapier.
