Aha! integrated with FogBugz for visual product roadmaps

FogBugz integration with Aha!

 

This two-way integration allows you to push your completed features and requirements in Aha! into FogBugz and automatically get status updates back as engineering does their work. When you have completed your product roadmap and feature planning you can move features into FogBugz for the engineering team to work on. You can send them individually or in bulk for a sprint or release.

This two-way integration makes it easy for product management to set brilliant product strategy and share visual roadmaps while engineering can continue to work in FogBugz to build what matters. And the bi-directional nature of the integration makes sure that everyone stays in the loop.

In this screenshot you can see a feature with an attachment that was sent from Aha! to FogBugz.
