How do you use Lighthouse to create specs?

I have a fairly big project worked on by a far-flung team. The project is made of a number of modules that have a number of requirements. The modules need to be developed in a specific order. For example, Simple Source Control has the following requirements: 1) Source is stored in three states, development, production. archive. 2) When a development module is flagged for production, the current production module is archived. 3) Customers may select ro maintain 3 - 99 revs to the current development module, and be able to easily access and retrieve any module.
How would you structure this to do the spec and set priorities? Is this a good product for this kind of thing?

    We usually strongly suggest users go through the 30-day trial to see if it works for their workflow. Can Lighthouse do what you're describing? Absolutely. Can it do it in a way that you feel is optimized for your business requirements? There is no way for us to know that.

    We have priority states of High, Medium and Low for tickets (priority state is available on Bronze plans and higher). These would not be customizable. We have ticket states that are customizable, so that would seem to work for your three different sources. There isn't ticket dependency so the flagging of modules you talk about would need to be maintained by someone.

    Your third issue doesn't sound like something Lighthouse would be able to do at all. We have pages you could use for your downloads, but again, it would need to be maintained by someone and wouldn't be something automatically updated by the system on ticket changes.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.
