BugHerd is a bug tracking and project management platform built for web developers and designers but was designed to be suitable for users of all technical backgrounds. BugHerd aims to make its platform easy to use with an intuitive user interface and numerous how-to videos. Built-in automation collects technical information that a non-technical user may not know to include, while real-time commenting and screen recording allows reporters to provide useful context to the dev team.
On the developer side, BugHerd aims to keep project management simple as well with a kanban-style task board. Managers can quickly assign tasks to developers, as well as track progress. With unlimited projects, tasks can be divided into as many projects as a manager wants at no additional cost. Developers can access only their tasks on a custom dashboard.
BugHerd is presented as a simple visual feedback & bug tracker tool for websites.
Users point and click, like using sticky-notes to pin client feedback on a site. BugHerd works in 3 steps:
1. Pin feedback to a webpage using a browser extension.
2. Contextual metadata is automatically added to all pinned feedback.
3. Tasks cards are instantly created from feedback, helping users manage their workflow.
Overview of BugHerd Features
BugHerd automates portions of bug tracking by recording vital information, such as browser information, screen size, operating system, and location. By allowing users to comment when they are submitting this information, BugHerd allows for additional context to be included with the technical information.
BugHerd offers unlimited guests and unlimited projects. This means that companies can invite as many clients to review as much of their content as they need with no additional cost. Guests are different from members. Members are employees with access to all information on BugHerd. Guests are anonymous users that can report bugs, and get information/updates on only the bugs they reported. Each pricing tier has a limited number of members, and additional members can be added at an additional cost.
After bugs are reported by a member or guest, tasks are sent to a kanban-style board that can be used to track progress. Members can access their assigned tasks through a custom dashboard. All BugHerd data can be exported via XML, JSON, and CSV. If desired, tasks can be accessed using the BugHerd API.
Bug Tracking for Non-Technical Users
BugHerd differs from other bug tracking applications, as it was designed to be easy to use for non-technical users. While other software is easy for those with a technical background, BugHerd aims to be easy for everyone. BugHerd automatically records information that the technical team will need, such as operating system, browser, screen size, and more. User comments are pinned to the website location. Users can take screenshots or record their screens to provide more information to the technical team.
BugHerd aims to make it easier for developers to gather information about and replicate bugs by automating some of the processes and making it easier for other users to easily communicate details to the dev team.

The tool has great functionality for tracking and allows you to move bugs into stages like "doing", "done" or "backlog".
The screenshot tool has been super easy to use, and when we do have a bug that requires multiple screenshots, it's easy to open up a newly submitted ticket to attach a custom screenshot. It isn't easy to track down a specific bug you've logged if there are hundreds, so be prepared to dig quite a bit if you're using it for extensive testing and find yourself trying to go back.
