Comparing “valid” bugs

If you compare the rate of resolutions for just valid bugs (meaning reproducable, not by design, and not duplicate) submitted by customers versus the internally submitted ones, the fix rate is almost the same and we're "Won't Fix"ing fewer customer issues.

    Thanks Marie,

    Is it possible to see timings chart for submission / first response / closed statuses ?

    On one side are reports count, on another side are time for a status change.


  2. Marie Hagman says:

    We are currently tracking average time to first response (currently at about 7 days overall with some teams averaging much less). I look into pulling values for time time to resolution and close as well. Thanks for the suggestion!
