Vacances Product Features

Continue with the feature tour to find how Vacances can help your technical team!

Vacances Feature Tour - Defect Tracking

When more than one person in a technical organization has responsibility for technical support, software development, testing and documentation, communication is a challenge. How do developers know when a software problem is found? How do support representatives know when a problem has been resolved? How does a documentation specialist know when a software change requires an update to the user manual or help?

Vacances provides a medium of communication between all members of a product's technical staff and keeps the work moving. Every issue has one responsible individual at all times. Problems and suggestions can't be ignored or delayed without the team leader's knowledge.

Enter the details of the defect and document the steps necessary to recreate the error.
Additional tabs in this window are used by quality assurance testers to document verification
of the defect, by developers to document the software changes necessary to correct the defect,
and to record information that will be printed in a Version History report.

Vacances Feature Tour - Enhancement Suggestion Tracking

Users are the best source of suggestions for software improvements. Technical support or help desk staff interact directly with users, collect product enhancement suggestions, and report them using Vacances. When the time comes to choose enhancements for inclusion in a new version, the information is readily available in Vacances.

Record software enhancement suggestions in the same way defects are recorded.
Accumulate suggestions to be reviewed for addition to the next software release.

Vacances Feature Tour - Workflow Management

From the initial discovery of a problem by the support or help desk agent to the final release of a correction, each item in Vacances has one responsible individual.

Every item is tracked and documented at every stage in the correction cycle.

Report - A software issue is reported by a customer, technical support representative, or quality assurance tester. Responsibility for the issue is assigned to testing for verification.

Verification - The issue is duplicated and verified. Responsibility for the issue is assigned to a developer for correction.

Correction - A developer corrects the problem and returns responsibility to a quality assurance tester.

Testing - The correction is tested to verify a successful correction. Testing assigns responsibility to a documentation specialist to update help files or user manual.

Documentation - Documentation updates are completed and the issue is placed on the release list by the team lead.

Release - A new version of the software is released with the correction. Version history information generated by Vacances documents the issue and its correction.

Project Prioritization
Every issue entered in Vacances is assigned a priority code. A team lead can modify individual item priorities as team priorities change.

Audit History
With each item in Vacances is stored a complete history of changes, corrections and responsibility updates. The development team leader sees every change to every item.

Every member of the technical team uses Vacances to control their work.
Filtered lists display and prioritize each team member's task list.

Vacances Feature Tour - Communication

As technical teams grow so does the challenge of effective communication. Developers aren't told of necessary product updates, support representatives don't know the status of software corrections, and managers are unable to effectively direct their teams. Vacances gives every member of a technical group the information they need to organize their work, be more productive, and serve their customers.

Filtered lists communicate information to technical team members.
When software changes are completed, Version History reports communicate this
information to end-users or support staff.

Vacances Feature Tour - Data Table Definition

Vacances can be used to document and create program source code for data table structures on two levels: At the lowest level, to define data tables and their structure. For more functionality if you use Borland Delphi with or without the Advantage Database from Extended Systems, you can create Delphi source code that is immediately usable for creating new data tables.

Use Vacances to document data table formats. All team members have access
to information on the structure and contents of an application's data files.
