When we first launched the platform for FogBugz, you just couldn’t get enough of it, could you?
Because we love being loved, we got the guys and girls at our R&D centre to continuously upgrade the plugin with more and more features. After busting a few neurons and spending many arduous nights (no sleep, plenty of caffeine, get the picture?), we’re ready to throw down the red carpet and pop some Dom Pérignon and invite you to try, (taaaa daaaa) – Creately for FogBugz Plugin Version 1.2.
You see folks, this ain’t just another oh-by-the-way-we-need-an-update-chums type of an update. It’s way grander than that. First things first, we dragged out the fly swatter and killed the bugs. And if you come across any, you let us know, you hear?
The basic premise of Creately for FogBugz is that a project team can create and attach Flowcharts, Use Cases, Wireframes and any other diagrams to their project cases and wikis.
But you knew that. So, here’s what you didn’t know.
So, what’s new?
We’ll tell you. The new version is enriched with brand new customizable Text-driven Smart Objects, which means they can be configured by just editing the Text from the Properties panel. So you can make it as funky as you want it. So, can Smart Objects be used in Wireframes, UML and Database Designs? Oh, yes. Geez, what will we think of next? :0)
Image Search? Oh, it’s just a cinch.
Images there and images here. What’s an enterprising project manager to search for, when time really is in short supply. Now, scrolling up and down in search of images is redundant. Now, just type what you want, and hey presto, there you have it.

Creately brings diagramming to the FogBugz platform
Melbourne, Australia June 14th 2010
Today, Cinergix announces the launch of the Creately for FogBugz plugin, making it easy for FogBugz customers to add Use Case diagrams, mockups, flowcharts, UML designs or any other diagrams to their bug reports, cases and wiki pages. Creately will provide software developers a better way to communicate with their teams and document software projects visually on the popular Fogbugz platform developed by FogCreek Software.
“Capturing requirements clearly and accurately saves project teams a lot of time. With Creately for Fogbugz, software and support teams can now quickly add wireframes, use cases, UML designs and flowcharts into Fogbugz feature requests, bug reports and project wiki so everyone’s on the same page,” said Chandika Jayasundara, CEO, Cinergix Pty Ltd. “Traditionally Fogbugz has been a text-based collaboration platform, but with the Creately plugin, software teams can communicate visually, directly impacting the team’s productivity. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.” added Mr Jayasundara.
Creately for Fogbugz is integrated into the core workflow of the Fogbugz platform and offers the same easy to use Creately interface. “We want to ensure this powerful new visual collaboration paradigm is adopted by the Fogbugz community, so we’ve designed it to fit seamlessly into the Fogbugz interface and developers’ daily work routines.” concluded Mr Jayasundara. Fogbugz users can directly edit their software diagrams in the browser, making it easy to keep project document up-to date and removing the need for expensive desktop-based diagramming software.
Creately for FogBugz plugin is available for installation on your own Fogbugz server starting from $85/user with bulk discounts available for larger teams. A hosted version for FogBugz OnDemand will be announced shortly.
Creately for Fogbugz is now available at the FogBugz Plugins website and includes a free 14-day trial – http://bit.ly/createlyforFB More details on this announcement can be found on the Creately Blog – http://creately.com/blog/announcements/diagrams-in-fogbugz/About Cinergix
