Feedback Widget: making bug tracking easy for users and developers alike
The first thing developers love about Userback is how easy it is to install the ‘feedback widget’ on a web application or website. The feedback widget is the feedback collection tool for feature requests, comments and bug reports.
It’s as simple as adding a line of code to the header on pages where you want to collect feedback. It literally takes a few minutes to get set up and start collecting bug reports.

Centralized & Automated: no more manually managing bug tracking with spreadsheets
Once the Userback Feedback Widget is installed on a web application or website managing bug tracking gets a whole lot easier. All bug reports are collected in a consistent way and stored in a centralized place, making it easier for developers to access and interpret the information that comes with every bug report.
Integrations: add bug tracking into your existing workflows with ease
Userback understands the complex ecosystems of tools and platforms that developers use (we are developers ourselves after all!). That’s why Userback has seamless integrations with popular workflow platforms like Jira, Asana, Basecamp, and GitLab, among others. These integrations enable software teams to incorporate bug tracking, issue reports reports and other forms of user feedback directly into their existing workflows, enhancing productivity and collaboration.

Visual Feedback: the perspective you need to accelerate bug tracking and resolution
Userback understands that sometimes words alone are not enough to convey the intricacies of a bug. Visual feedback is a powerful tool that allows users to provide annotated screen grabs, videos, and even audio recordings along with their bug reports. This feature ensures that developers have a crystal-clear understanding of the problem, enhancing communication and speeding up bug resolution.

Session Replays: Review every mouse move and screen interaction
One of the features developers love most about Userback for bug tracking is the automatic capture of session replays. With session replay, developers can rewind and review every mouse movement and screen interaction leading up to a bug. This feature offers invaluable insights into the context and sequence of events that led to the issue, enabling developers to understand and replicate bugs quickly.

User Identification: replicating bug tracking issues with ease
When it comes to bug tracking, having comprehensive user and system information is crucial for developers so that they can understand and replicate the environment in which an issue occured. Userback’s user identification feature captures all relevant details like browser type, operating system, and more in the background. This information helps developers instantly replicate issues without having to request additional data from users, saving time and effort.

Merge Feedback: consolidate bug tracking reports
Developers often face a flood of bug reports, many of which may highlight similar issues. Userback’s merge feedback feature allows developers and software teams to consolidate repeated or similar feedback into a single piece. By reducing the volume of bug reports to review and resolve, this feature streamlines the bug tracking process and allows developers to focus their efforts on critical issues.

REST API: Automate repetitive bug tracking tasks
Repetitive tasks can be a drain on developers’ time and energy. Userback’s REST API provides developers with the ability to automate various bug tracking tasks. From creating bug reports to retrieving data, the REST API empowers developers to streamline their workflow and focus on what matters most—developing high-quality software.
