About Ed-Fi Tracker

Tracker is the system that Ed-Fi uses to track issues and work items across its software development projects and programs. Tracker has many different projects. Support tickets in the EDFI project will often result in new tickets in other projects, linked back to the EDFI ticket.

You can follow those other links/tickets to see how the issue is being addressed in an Ed-Fi software project or in an Ed-Fi program. You can also make comments in those other tickets..

Note that while all community members are able to view and comment on tickets in many of the software development projects, the EDFI project is the only point of entry for community requests.
