Collaboration software for tracking questions/issues

I'm sure this comes up in places that are more dev focused, but it's lamentably uncommon in the circles I frequent. I'm looking for a way of tracking questions and concerns that come up over the course of a complex problem, and being able to associate those questions with the data and other questions (or future answers) on which they depend.

Anyone know of anything designed for this, or does it come down to keeping a separate file for documentation? Seems like that's a little crude.

Sounds like a bug tracker to me. Bugzilla is an example of one.

Good catch. As I rephrased it to post here and hit on "issue tracking" as a thought, some corner of my brain was saying "Yeah, that's a thing."

The question came up as part of looking at complex economics questions, but I would like to probably apply it to things like my MA thesis work as well.

Any CRM software should be able to do this. Bugzilla is one, Saleforce is another, and Zen Desk is a good one too. Just depends on the purpose/product/project. Each have their own focus.

Check out Trello too for more general project 'stuff'.
