- Bug Name: A bug name consists of the name of the feature where an issue was found. For example, when you are unable to save your profile while creating your account, the ideal bug name would be “ACCOUNT CREATION – Unable to save my profile”.
- Reporter Name: Whether it’s your team member or client who reports a bug, its important to keep track of reporter name. When it’s a client who finds a bug, you would want to follow him/her up when the bug is fixed.
- Reporter Email: To follow up on the status of a bug to a client, especially when it is fixed, you, therefore, need his/her email address.
- Submit Date: Submit date is always necessary to know when the bug is found, and therefore to know how long it takes to fix that bug.

- URL: URL of the page where the bug is found. That way, it is easier for developers to spot the problem.
- Screenshot: Visual proof that will help developers to understand the problem better and faster.
- Environment: Knowing in what environment the bug is found is indeed essential for developers as websites may behave differently from one environment to another.
- Assignee: An assignee is a developer who is assigned to fix a bug. Each bug has a specific assignee.
- Bug Details: Bug details consist of repro steps that detail the steps taken before the bug is encountered.
- Priority: The “Priority” column indicates which bug is critical and needs immediate treatment.
- Status: The “Status” column allows to track the progress of each bug and to see how many items are done and how many of them are still requiring work.
- Comments: Managers can give their feedback in the “Comments” column. Other than that, it helps facilitate communications between managers and developers.
