If you want to control bugs, MantisBT is the best solution.
Vorteile: Suitable software to track errors, inform the team through fault reports. It is important to highlight that MantisBT has a free license that allows multiple options to carry the day to day of the software that is already in the test stage. For the user, it has a nice interface and the team can be notified of each stage of the test cycle.
Nachteile: Your options are limited when it comes to customizing and creating new reports and more accurate tracking of manual test cases. Does not allow direct interaction between users.

MantisBT, basic control for basic dev teams
Jose miguel S.
We needed a basic bug tracker system, based on that and we actually work using the predefined workflow: if your needs fits with ours, MantisBT is a very solid, stable and easy to use BTS.
Vorteile: Version 2.x came with a bunch of much needed UI changes. Now MantisBT has a modern look and feel. Also, it maintains its core functionality, so create and manage tickets for your projects is a breathe as always.
Nachteile: Even in version 2.x, you still have to setup your development workflow using text files, which is not optimal and a very dated way of doing this and makes you take the setup a little longer.

MantisBT for Support Ticket Tracking
Kommentare: We use MantisBT for our Support Staff to report, track and research problems our customers have encountered with our software product. At the same time, it is also used by our software development team to report and track issues and enhancements with our software. Being able to correlate the two is something that other support tracking software cannot do.
Vorteile: It is easy to use, customizable and works well for integrating issues between support and development teams.
Nachteile: Not that it is truly a bad thing, but there are just so many fields as options, it can be overwhelming.

Syed Mantis Review
Kommentare: I have been using Mantis for my current company for almost 4 years. This software is being used for tracking and assigning issues/tickets to the team for different projects and you can follow up with your team members by manually going into the specific ticket what is due for that day etc. I gave Mantis 3 stars because there are limitations and have some boundaries.
Vorteile: Easy to use. User friendly
Nachteile: You don't have a way to track stuff automated way. Where you should receive notification if a person did not touch the ticket and the deadline is near. You have to go in and track all those things manually. Where a person who assigned the case and the person to whom the case is assigned both should receive automatic reminders and warnings.

My first issue tracking and bug development tool
Mantis was the first issue tracking software that I used several years ago . It was easy to install, setup and deploy through all departments involved from development to QA release of product.
As all open-source tools is widely maintained by the community
Nachteile: I love free version of MantisBT, but professional version is really expensive comparing to other options on the market

great tool to truck bugs
Vorteile: I like how it's easy to install and use since the interface is very simple but not modern. Also you can customize it to your needs. I highly recommend it.
Nachteile: there are some customisations aren't possible so you will have to change the core by yourself..

Very flexible great software, exactly what I needed for my software development for Magento modules
Kommentare: Without bug tracking system you are lost, this software goes way further than just being a tracker, its clear, clean and anybody can use it!
Once you have the software configured, you can make accounts and assign issues to persons or groups, really easy and useful, if an external developer has to look into an issue its informed by email and can tag, mark it being busy with it.
Their bootstrap design is amazing, before version 2 it wasn't so tidy but nowadays it is! Thanks for making my bug tracking and managing easier! I also used it in a big big company, thanks to multi language it was doable also for the Dutch and German people, cause they had the interface in their own language. Stop looking for other software, this is what you need!
Nachteile: Before you can work with the software you need to setup a lot, users, groups, software, versions and more, but once you're done, its really great and you forgot that you needed some time to set it up.

Good Issue Tracker
Kommentare: Collecting data on all of our firm's development issues is of high importance to us. Mantis is a good tool for that.
Mantis offers a good interface to gather comments, files... for all team members involved. A lot is predefined (like choice lists), so you can quickly dive in.
Lots of possibilities to filter your views and searches.
Personally, I find it hard to set up - let alone customize - the system. Therefor, we're using it straight from the box. There are features that I'd rather remove from the interface, but I wouldn't know how.
I contacted Support several times in the past (not recently though), no response.
Most of the settings are awkward to apply, takes a little getting used to.

Task Management/Project Management Tool
Kommentare: Improved communication and a permanent record of tasks/projects progress from start to end.
. It is Free
. It allows me to manage a team of 5 IT programmers and remote designers by tracking all tasks and projects assigned to them.
. It allows all of us to update status, request information and update multiple team members on what is happening with a project.
. It keeps a permanent record of my staff's performance both on Time spent and on communication skills.
Nachteile: This is more of a task manager rather than project manager so we've had to adjust the use of the tool. But, it works.

Feature Rich bug tracker
Kommentare: Proper tracking of daily tasks.
Can track multiple projects and multiple users working on it.
The filters given are really awesome, it helps a lot to track the project and user workflow.
Many functionalities are given with simplicity like forms, user tracker, project-wise tracking, road maps, user account, project details, etc.
Various User levels are given to work with, so it's easy to assign, resolve and close the issue for higher / lower level user too.
The detailing about any task gives in-depth info of any project,
in which child task, parent task functionality plays the major role.
Nachteile: The UI is not at all user-friendly, the non-technical person could not understand it easily. The concept of child class/ parent class is tedious to understand in the first view. The links for "Bug Update" page (Pencil icon) and "bug view" page (hyperlinked Bug ID) are located really very close, so while updating the task, it creates confusion.

Great product with lots of funtionality
I used this for my old place of work! and must say at the time it was easy to use, With tons of features!
I like the drop down list for different departments (sites) and how easy it is to track faults open or closed with different colors for different states! I now use a program called Team support, which I have found easier to use, With the Sam functionality! unsure on prices of either product as I'm just a user! but mantis is definitely a handy little program that I would say is focused more on the technical user!
Vorteile: Ease of use and functionality
Nachteile: Looks a bit more technical for the nontechnician minded

Simple but good bug tracking tool, serves its purpose
Maria agnes C.
Kommentare: It let me tracking my daily tasks plus I learned all the basics of bug tracking process from this tool
Vorteile: It's a good platform to track issues for multiple projects and users. It offer a good, user friendly interface not pretty but functional with all the features you would expect for a bug tracking platform. Overall, this is a small program, very straigthforward making it very handy and probably the best option for new users or startup operations.
Nachteile: Though its UI is clear and concise, need to improve on some graphical look and feel. It's also not as customizable as other bug tracking tool/project management like JIRA

Vorteile: It provides easy bug tracking covering all basic things required fo ra Bug tracking software. It can be integrated with all the build and task management tools. We have it integrated with TFS & SVN
Nachteile: Reporting & Filters should be improved a lot. if both these things are improved people will find it an ideal solution for bug tracking

Ugly but free and works
Kommentare: I've been using Mantis in both companies I cofounded. Everyone was horrified at the UI, but I never had a single issue with managing it.
Has everything for bug tracking and project management
Simple enough to never break
The UI is, as they'd put it in the action movies, "one ugly m.er" - aesthetics of a service elevator
Configuration must be done by editing PHP files, not cool

Was not hard software to learn and work through
Warren james B.
Vorteile: You can tack jobs logged relatively easily. Works well in a software dev environment where you are tracking bug related jobs and creating release notes for techs.
Nachteile: Every now and then the job submitted would not log properly and you would have to start the whole log again.

Extremely handy tool for the team
Vorteile: It helps monitor each and every bug easily and know who is attending to it at a given time.
Nachteile: The end-user (who is usually the bug reporter) gets a little taken aback when it comes to the UI but I don't think this is a big deal once they get familiar with it.

If you are looking to kickstart with a FREE bug tracker, go with Mantis
Mike lester R.
Kommentare: What i really liked about MantisBT is the simple and straightforward approach to tracking and squashing those pesky bugs! It is a real monitoring tool to keep track and address issues in the development or post-go-live of the project. Not much after that.
Vorteile: What I liked about MantisBT is the simple workflow it requires of the user to report, track, and update "bugs" in your projects (software). Instead of keeping track on the old and clunky offline Microsoft Excel, we deemed it best to implement a simple bug tracking system to quickly address issues in our software development project.
Nachteile: What I liked least about the software is that it is very limited in terms of its features and being an Open source solution, lacks the commercial support of similar paid software.

Nachteile: I have no issue to use this product but design view is not good. Need to improve some graphical look and feel.
