Oh yeah, it’s that time of the year again. The Christmas decorations are up and the annual “What are your plans for the festive season” conversations are in full swing. We’re desperately trying to make Santa’s nice list and our play list is full of “All I want for Christmas… is a complete wrap up of everything from BugHerd product”.
Well, wish no longer little sugar plums! Here’s everything you might have missed this year in BugHerd.
New look and feel for the Sidebar
During the year, the BugHerd sidebar had an update to better support cookie (put it down, Santa, it’s not that sort of cookie) changes for Safari, Firefox and Chrome browsers.
While we were at it, the design and experience of the sidebar had an update too, to look more modern and make it easier to leave feedback.
It’s now clearer to choose whether you want to leave feedback on a part of the page, the page as a whole, or create a short video.
Easier filtering and sorting of tasks from the sidebar
Who thought filtering and sorting feedback could be fun? Us, that’s who. (Yes, we’re aware that we should get out more in 2023.)
If you were finding it difficult to see the related pin for a specific task in a sea of pins, we’ve got your back. Clicking on a task and the corresponding pin increases in size to show the exact location.
Task list a little too long? Click This page to see tasks just on one page, or click All to view all tasks across the entire website.
Tap the person icon and view only the tasks you’ve created or have been assigned.
Or sort the tasks you’re looking at by severity, creation date, who they’re assigned to or by status.
View just the information you want, when you want it.
Sharing the love for mobile devices
You were definitely not alone wanting a little love for BugHerd on mobile devices. The shorter sidebar makes it easier to leave feedback without needing to stretch your thumbs out of joint and the sorting and filtering fit more neatly onto a mobile or cell phone screen.

Let guests see feedback left by members
We didn’t need an army of elves to tell us you’d like to assign a task to a guest for review. You told us loud and clear.
Guest users can now view and respond to tasks created by members, if you want them to. Enabling the guest viewing features lets you @mention guests in comments so they can view the task and respond. Perfect for that final User Acceptance testing phase before launch.
Direct Integrations with Jira, Trello and Asana
We also heard you wanted to be able to better integrate with Jira, Trello and Asana. Currently in Beta, our direct integrations enable you to choose when and how you send tasks to other project management programs.
Recent updates mean you can also send tasks to a particular Jira Epic or Asana Section.
Keen to try it out for yourself? Send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll help you get started.
