BugHerd Review: Features and Strengths

Ease of Use

BugHerd provides an intuitive point-and-click interface for easy website feedback. Users can pin feedback directly to page elements of the web page. They can install the software with either a Java snippet or through a browser extension. Clients can quickly provide feedback to their website without having to learn coding or any technical knowledge.

Currently, in beta, guests can also give feedback by recording a video of the screen. Video feedback is useful for showing multi-step interactions and other complex actions or situations.

Comprehensive Feedback

BugHerd collects comprehensive technical information so users can send issues and errors with the right context and allow designers and developers to resolve them with precision. Users can capture a screen recording or screenshot and annotate it. The software automatically includes technical information such as browser name and operating system.

Testers, reviewers, or clients can pin their feedback to the specific website element, not just in a screen location. The software also supports real-time commenting for seamless collaboration.

Task Management, Version Control, Personalized Dashboard, and More

BugHerd simplifies bug tracking and issue resolution with a Kanban-like Task Board for effective management and completion of tasks. It is a robust tool that allows users to create as many projects as needed and invite unlimited guests for comprehensive feedback. A personalized Dashboard gives individual team members a quick way to see their tasks and related comments.

The visual feedback software has a built-in version control feature that lets developers update bug information from commit log messages. Its version control syncs with GitHub, GitLab, or BitBucket. It also integrates with Slack, Zapier, Integromat, and WordPress.

Case Studies

Ross Dougall was the National Manager of Customer Experience at the Australian office of a global car brand. At that time, the website requires regular and timely content, but the team was communicating with emails, Jira tickets, documents, MS Paint images, and phone calls, resulting in a slow, outdated, and cumbersome process. BugHerd, with its screenshot feature, became the main communication mode between Ross’s team and the authoring agency. Time taken to report and fix issues went down from days to minutes.

Jonathan Bradford is the Managing Director of a web design agency with a head office in London. The innovative company has been using BugHerd to manage internal reviews for website projects. However, customer feedback and reviewing through back-and-forth emails have become challenging. By upgrading their BugHerd plan, Jonathan’s team was able to use screenshots, visual annotations, and mobile feedback with their clients. This saves communication time and removes the need for long email trails and frustrating document revisions.
