About this template

Most software bugs are as unpredictable as they are unique, use this bug reporting template to visually explain how your team should respond consistently to each and every bug.

Some simple bugs can be fixed in a few hours, while other complex software bugs can throw your entire product roadmap or development timeline into disarray.

Even though most of these software bugs are distinct, the software bug reporting flow that your team uses to respond to the problem shouldn't be.

Taking the time to visually map out how your team should respond to a bug with a bug reporting template can help drive alignment and avoid minor bugs becoming massive problems.

On a large or distributed team, a single, consistent process for taking in bug reports, prioritizing them, and communicating their status is very beneficial.

We are a highly distributed team at Whimsical, so a bug reporting flow template like this is essential. In fact, this bug reporting flow template is inspired by the process that we use internally to tackle bugs once we hear from customers.

Using our bug reporting flow template, you can quickly visualize the process your team should follow once they discover a bug, no matter how small.

With just a few clicks, you can use flowchart shapes, arrows, and connectors to plot out the primary and secondary processes for reporting a new software bug.

For each step or act of the process, you can feature a different flowchart shape, add comments, tag coworkers, or highlight essential steps with an eye-catching color.

Not sure which flowchart shapes or connectors to use in your bug reporting flow? In this template, we have also explained what each shape represents in a flowchart and when to use the various connectors to help your team squash bugs effectively.
