You selected your website layout, handpicked photos, and worked through your content. Now it’s time to make sure all your hard work was put together nicely to create your web presence. This is the time to review your testing link!

Throughout the years, we tried many methods to receive our clients’ feedback. Word documents, spreadsheets, phone calls, meetings, etc. Finally, we found a solution that gives us the most flexibility and efficiency – BugHerd.

This awesome software is 100% web based and allows you to review your testing link as if you were sitting right next to us. You simply point, click a specific area, and write your comments. Voilà! We receive your comments on the other end, filter them to make sure your requests fall within the scope of work, and process them accordingly by either assigning them to a team member or by addressing specifics with you.

The setup is very easy and literally takes 2 minutes. Follow the instructions below and you’ll soon be on your way to start your review.

  1. Go to http://www.bugherd.com/extensions. BugHerd currently works on 3 browsers: Chrome, Edge, and Safari. If you don’t have one of those, please click on one of the links below to download one of them. We recommend Chrome. If you already have one of them, install the extension by clicking “Install” under the browser you already have when you’re on the page above.
