The new feedback experience included a shortcut to tag tasks by adding a # to the description.
Unfortunately if you needed to add a HEX code in the description, BugHerd would create a tag instead.
To solve this, the shortcut for adding a tag to a description is now ## (double hashtag).
Thanks to everyone who sent us feedback about this.

When you next leave feedback on a website, creating a task will look a little different. It’s a step towards making it even easier to leave great feedback on websites.
1. Everyone loves a short cut, so in the description you can now @ mention someone to assign them to the task, add a colon (:) to add an emoji, and you can also use # to add any tags.
2. The pop up is smaller and cleaner and we’ve polished up the assignee and tags fields.
3. A personal favourite, you can now move the window around, which makes it easier to uncover the text beneath it. Yay!
4. We’ve made it easier to see the annotation button. So if you didn’t realise you could annotate the screenshots in BugHerd, now is your chance to give it a try.
5. And finally, it’s now easier to create tasks on smart phones with a better mobile experience.Read More

Ok, we’re going to get a bit technical here, but bear with us. We promise it will be worth your while. 🧐
We now support all parts of the URL when assigning feedback to projects. This means you can include querystring parameters, hashes, unicode characters, and subdomains when setting up your project’s Website URL as shown below. This is particularly handy if you have several BugHerd projects on the same website.
This seemingly small change enables some great new ways for you to use BugHerd that you might not have previously thought of. Such as…
Often websites use the “querystring” to control which language version of the site a visitor will see. A good example of this is the Sonos’ support website.
Now you can set up a different BugHerd project for each language version of your site, enabling you to invite different translators to each.
Popular platforms like Hubspot, Shopify, and more use the “querystring” to direct users to hidden or “preview” versions of your website. This is particularly useful for getting your clients approval before publishing changes for the world to see.
These URLs might look something like this…
Now you can add these links to your project’s Website URL list so that feedback on those pages are directed to the right project in BugHerd.
If you're creating online learning courses, modules or other course content may also be identified by querystrings. For example, Moodle courses can comprise many pages of content identified with URLs like the one below.
Now you can add these URLs to your project’s Website URL list so that feedback on those courses/chapters/modules/etc are directed to the right project in BugHerd.
Finally, if you use BugHerd on a single page web application, your app may use the “querystring” or “hash paths” to identify what screen the user is viewing.
Now when a user gives feedback on a screen, BugHerd captures the full “hash path” and “querystring” so you can be sure the feedback is pinned to the correct element on the screen.

It’s now easier to add, remove and modify URLs for your BugHerd projects. It’s also now easier to set new projects up.
To view the URLs for your projects click on the Project Settings menu on the left hand side of your Task Board and select edit project.
For each project, you can now list all the URLs you want the BugHerd sidebar to appear on.
Note that the first URL listed is the main URL for your project. Guests will be directed to that page when they log in to give feedback.
You can view your URLs, add URLs, remove URLs or swap the order of the URLs in each BugHerd project.
Add a URL by clicking Add another URL in the Project Settings.
Enter the URL. BugHerd will confirm if it's valid with a green tick. You may get a warning message if BugHerd can't find a website matching the URL. For example: if you're using a local network or your website isn't available to the outside world. You can read more about this here.
You can remove a URL by clicking the ellipses (...) beside the URL and selecting Remove URL.
Don’t worry - you don’t need to do anything to your existing project settings. Your project will continue to work as they do now.
Previously you had your Feedback URL and any secondary URLs were added in the Hostnames section (see image below)
Your Feedback URL is now set as the primary URL for a project. Any additional URLs that were in your Hostnames section will be transferred to secondary URLs.
You can simply add any further URLs to your list as required.
If you want more information about URLs in your project, you can read this support note.Read More
