The issues module is where you add, view, and modify your issues (an issue can be a bug, a task, an enhancement or feature request). Issues that were reported directly from Test Runs, will also appear in the issues grid.
The filters tree
The filters tree allows you to organize your issues by creating different filters using different parameters. You can read more about custom filters here.
The fast filters option allow you to further narrow down the Issues view using a parameter from fields that appears in your grid. For example, if I only want to see Issues that has 1-Showstopper priority, you can select the 'Showstopper' value as a filter for the 'Priority' field, and narrow down the results to show only issues that meet this criteria.
To access the fast filters, click the 'Filters' button above the grid.
Allows you to create a report for several selected issues. These are different from the reports generated in the Report Center, since you do not have to choose an entire view to print. Simply select issues using the checkboxes on the left side of the grid, and click on the “Print” icon to save or print a report for these issues.
Allows you to edit multiple issues simultaneously. Select the issues you would like to edit using the checkboxes on the left side of the grid, and click on 'Batch Edit' button at the top of the grid. The changes you make will apply to all the issues you have selected.
Note: Only Account Owners can enable issue deletion
In order to enable issues deletion, go to the Account Settings – Projects Management – click ‘Edit’ icon near the project, check ‘Enable Issues Deletion’ and click Update.
Bug by Mail
With PractiTest you can report Issues directly from your email client. This is great if you have customers or field engineers (sales, support, etc) who don’t have access to PractiTest, or if you want to forward someone’s bug directly from your inbox to the system:
in order to access your targeted email address that will enable you to report bugs by mail:

In the personal tab , on the upper right corner you can find this box with your project’s individual email address.
