How to handle one story that needs to be verified on multiple platforms

I want to maintain only one story/bug but be able to distinquish the platforms that QA is verifying it on. For example, we need the same story to be run on the desktop, ipad 2,3,4, mini, etc. At any point, we want to be able to see if QA verified the story on a given platform. Is there a solution for this problem? We currently are using labels but want to see if there is a better way.

Using tags is a fine way to achieve what you are after. A few other ideas worth considering:

  • Creating boolean custom fields for each platform. You could check them off individually.
  • Setting up a custom workflow, which might be handy if you normally check the platforms in a particular order
  • Creating sub-tasks for each platform that you test. This would be especially good if you wanted to record comments, assign work, track time, etc against the testing task for each platform.
