Fix bugs faster with Session Replays
We kicked off the new year with the launch of Session Replays because we saw so many software teams struggling with two key challenges:
- Understanding what user’s mean by their feedback;
- Quickly finding and fixing bugs in your web apps.
Session Replays allow developers to see bugs and other issues through the eyes of users, dramatically reducing the time it takes to understand and replicate an issue. It’s a real game-changer for so many teams — no more back-and-forth with customers trying to understand their feedback.
Every piece of feedback submitted automatically has a session replay attached to it containing all the detailed user data, system information, plus a replay ‘video’ that shows exactly what was happening in the build up to the bug and when it actually occurred. Unlike a video recording, which literally records a user’s screen, a Session Replay is a reproduction of a user’s interactions on your site exactly how they experienced it. It takes all the logged user events, like mouse movements, clicks, scrolling, page visits etc, and puts them together into a reproduction of what the user actually did on the site.
No more contacting the user to try to understand what was going on, you get all the information you need right there, it’s the closest you can get to actually being the user!
You can turn on Session Replay today in your widget settings.
Know your user
User Identification seamlessly identifies your users and allows you to automatically tie feedback, feature requests, and bug reports back to individual users and to group them based on who they are and what they’ve done in your application.
Give your users a voice with the Feedback Portal
In April we launched the Feedback Portal which allows you to collect and organize feedback like feature requests and invite users to vote and comment on them to show you what really matters to them. The Feedback Portal:
- Makes it easier for you to prioritize features and fixes;
- Saves time by managing user feedback in a central place;
- Collects more feedback and ideas from your users via an elegant interface;
- Ensures better product decisions by allowing the best ideas to rise to the top;
- Can be branded with your own logo and URL.
It’s not all about automation!
As much as we love automating the user feedback process, in June 2022 we introduced a manual feature! We were asked “What if I’m given feedback over the phone, by email, or in person?”, so we made it easy to add feedback, including pasted images, manually.
Simply Open Feedback in Userback, Click the + button on the top right corner and Fill in the Add Feedback form; expand the session info section to add your reporter’s details.
#1 for Bug Tracking
In August we were really excited to be named as The #1 Platform for Bug Tracking by G2. Here’s the most recent feedback: “It is really easy to set the Userback widget on your product, customize how it looks, and link it with whatever other tool you like. It is also extremely straightforward from the end user’s perspective – even non tech-savvy users take advantage of it to report issues or make suggestions for our platform.”
Userback gets a facelift
In September we updated our logo and the look and feel of our brand.
Streamline user feedback management through integrations with Notion and Linear
You can now automatically push feedback and product ideas to Notion and Linear automatically by feedback type, or use the “Send to” button inside the Feedback viewer in Userback. You can also sync your issue status in Userback from Linear.
