We always here in the US during election season the saying “Every vote counts”. While many folks are quite skeptical about this on the scope of an election with millions of voters, rest assured there is one place your vote does count… the SugarCRM Bug Portal!
Earlier this spring we rolled out the first major updates to the Bug Portal, bringing it a fresh new look and improved useability thanks to AJAX goodness. One new feature we added was the ability to vote for bugs, so if you are experiencing the same pain as the original bug poster, you could effectively say “Hey! I want this fixed too!”. We track all the bug votes and then use this as a way to prioritize bugs to be addressed in upcoming releases. This takes the place of the “Patch Request” forum, and providing us an easier way to aggregate the fix requests and improving the bug nomination experience for you.
So next time you see a bug that’s bugging you, vote for it. Remember, every vote counts here :-).
