How to Use Bugherd for Reporting Bugs


BugHerd is a simple point and click bug tracker, that was founded in 2011 by Alan Downie and Matt Milosavljevic. The bugherd acts like a “sticky note on the website” and allows you to turn the feedback into actionable tasks. The bug tracking is so simple using the BugHerd.

It can easily be used as browser extension or by copying-and-pasting a JavaScript code snippet to your web pages.

The basic steps involved in using a bugherd are:-

  1. Capture client feedback:- Your clients report issues by making annotations right from the site being worked on.
  2. Resolve issues:- bugherd turns these feedback into full bug reports with all the necessary information you need to resolve the issue.
  3. Manage projects visually- you can easily manage the bugs in real time.

The installation of BugHerd is rather easy. The setup wizard will walk you through the entire installation process step by step. When installed in a Web project, the reporting interface appears as a sidebar on the right edge of the browser’s viewport.

To report a bug using bugherd follow the steps:-

1. To report a bug using the Bugherd Extension click the green “+” in the sidebar, after the installation.

2. After clicking the green “+” button you’ll be able to select elements on the website:

3. After clicking on the element you’ll be able to leave a comment and assign it to a user and set the Severity of the bug:

4. Click on create task and your task will be created. All the created tasks are send to the ticket system of bugherd and the issues are resolved and presented here again.
