This documentation is transcluded from Template:Tracked/doc.

This template is intended to be used on feedback pages and talk pages for software deployments. It floats right-aligned next to whichever content it precedes. Imagine we see a comment like the following:

Your software is broken. It doesn't even work on Windows ME. When I try to load it, Bill Gates appears on my screen and laughs manically. --Dogmaster3000 01:17, 14 December 2011 (PST)

Now let's say we want to note that there's a task on Phabricator for this. We'll add the following code: {{tracked|T123}} (where T123 is the identifier of the task).

Sample output:

Your software is broken. It doesn't even work on Windows ME. When I try to load it, Bill Gates appears on my screen and laughs manically. --Dogmaster3000 01:17, 14 December 2011 (PST)

We can leave it at that. If we'd like to note the fact that the task's been resolved, we can note its status, via {{tracked|T123|resolved}}. In addition to resolved, we support invalid, duplicate, declined, stalled and open. Example with the resolved keyword:

Sample output:

Your software is broken. It doesn't even work on Windows ME. When I try to load it, Bill Gates appears on my screen and laughs manically. --Dogmaster3000 01:17, 14 December 2011 (PST)

Of course, feel free to avoid using this template if tracking a comment is not useful.

You appear to be running the new IE toolbar. This is expected behavior. However, if you upgrade, it will show the angry dancing Ballmer instead. --GNUnicorn 01:38, 14 December 2011 (PST)

Bugzilla tickets

For backwards compatibility, this template also accepts the number of a Bugzilla ticket as first parameter, and the following resolutions: fixed, wontfix, later, invalid. Last but not least, we can mark a bug as critical. We deliberately aren't using this keyword for bugs which are resolved one way or another -- the point of adding this to the template is to note to all readers of the page that the seriousness of a bug has been critical. This keyword should only be used if the bug has also been marked as critical in Bugzilla. Example usage: {{Tracked|300|critical}}

Sample output:

Your software is broken. It doesn't even work on Windows ME. When I try to load it, Bill Gates appears on my screen and laughs manically. --Dogmaster3000 01:17, 14 December 2011 (PST)

If you need the Phabricator task for a migrated Bugzilla ticket, add 2000 to the BZ bug number and prefix with T, e.g., T2300 replaced bugzilla:300.
