Collecting data on all of our firm's development issues is of high importance to us. Mantis is a good tool for that.

Pros

Mantis offers a good interface to gather comments, files... for all team members involved. A lot is predefined (like choice lists), so you can quickly dive in.
Lots of possibilities to filter your views and searches.

Cons

Personally, I find it hard to set up - let alone customize - the system. Therefor, we're using it straight from the box. There are features that I'd rather remove from the interface, but I wouldn't know how.
I contacted Support several times in the past (not recently though), no response.
Most of the settings are awkward to apply, takes a little getting used to.

Mantis is one of the simplest bug tracker tool. It goes well with if somebody with no background of any tool starts working with any tool. Although lacks some features that takes it behind the other tracking tools, can be improved a lot by adapting of more collaborative approach.

Pros

simplest tool

Cons

Lack of collaboration

We've used this tool for bug tracking in one of our project. The prime need for this was that while working in an Agile environment it became quite necessary to be able to manage and assign bugs within the team. Project QA status and be able to manage bug workflow.

Pros

Ability to project bug status

Advice to Others

Integration with Project management tool

I have been using Mantis for my current company for almost 4 years. This software is being used for tracking and assigning issues/tickets to the team for different projects and you can follow up with your team members by manually going into the specific ticket what is due for that day etc. I gave Mantis 3 stars because there are limitations and have some boundaries.

Pros

Easy to use. User friendly

Cons

You don't have a way to track stuff automated way. Where you should receive notification if a person did not touch the ticket and the deadline is near. You have to go in and track all those things manually. Where a person who assigned the case and the person to whom the case is assigned both should receive automatic reminders and warnings.

Advice to Others

Automate the software by putting automated tracking and reminders.

I used this for my old place of work! and must say at the time it was easy to use, With tons of features!
I like the drop down list for different departments (sites) and how easy it is to track faults open or closed with different colors for different states!

I now use a program called Team support, which I have found easier to use, With the Sam functionality! unsure on prices of either product as I'm just a user!

but mantis is definitely a handy little program that I would say is focused more on the technical user!

Pros

Ease of use and functionality

Cons

Looks a bit more technical for the nontechnician minded

Advice to Others

Everything seems square rather than rounded with this product, work with it and you'll pick it up quickly

We use Mantis to track all of our customer's request for software configuration changes. It gives us a great historical record of the work being done, and provides constant reminders to drive action.

Pros

Reminder system drives better accountability. Filtering is useful to find only issues of a certain type.

Cons

User interface isn't pretty, although it is functional.

Advice to Others

More user customization of the interface would be great, at first there is a lot of unused fields for what we do.

I only have experience with Mantis, TFS and Jira. And this one I like the most. Most orderly bug tracker and easy to use.

Pros

The overview page with the different colours and simple forms.

Cons

Not adapted for agile programming.

Advice to Others

One can easely adapt the status flows an issue can follows in the processes, e.g. New -> Confirmed -> Assigned -> etc.
