The Macrotone Consulting Issue Tracker component is an example of what is often described as a trouble ticket system; a support ticket or incident ticket system; or a Helpdesk system. Issue tracking systems are commonly used in an organization's Customer Support / Call Centre to create, update, and resolve reported customer issues, or even issues reported by that organization's other employees.
An issue tracking system is similar to a "bug tracker", and often, a software company will sell both, and some bug trackers are capable of being used as an issue tracking system, and vice versa. Consistent use of an issue or Bug Tracking System is considered one of the "hallmarks of a good software team".
As release Joomla only provides some rudimentary control of user's passwords. The basic Joomla authentication of the user's password is whether the two entries match. If they match the user can continue. Password Control adds some additional controls to improve site security.
There are also a few additional Joomla extensions that we developedand use ourselves which are also available for others to use. These include the following:
- The EU Cookie plugin was built to comply with the European Directive for the display of Cookie information upon a web site and teh obtaining of user consent.
- The sh404sef installable plugin for Codingfish Discussions component 1.5 was built for our own usage and has been made available to the wider Joomla community. This is no longer used internally since we changed to using Kunena, hence we can no longer support it, but having been downloaded several hundred times and never having received any support requests for the plugin, we continue to make it available, despite our decision to remove it from the JED.
- Clean Lines Template This template developed for our own usage is build specifically for Joomla 2.5. Build on the Beez 5 template it is available with five colour options and a fixed or fluid width. It is available in the download area.
