Getting Started with BetterBugs 🚀

We're happy to see you here. 😀
If you're annoyed with the traditional bug-reporting and debugging process while you ensure the quality of your software, BetterBugs is for you.
BetterBugs can speed up your bug-reporting workflows up to 10X 🔥
Let's start making your first bug report! 😇

Step 2 # Create an Account 🏡

Next, you need to create an account to manage your bug reports. This enables you to keep everything organized and nice from a central place.
Once you click open the BetterBugs extension, you will see the "Home" icon on it. Clicking on it will take you to the login screen of BetterBugs.
You can create an account with your email address. Alternatively, you can create an account with your Gmail or GitHub accounts.
You are now ready to capture your first bug. 💪

Step 3 # Capturing Your First Bug 📸🐞

Go to the BetterBugs extension icon on your browser.
Next, make your selection for the way you want to capture the bug. You can choose between taking a screenshot or recording a video.
For instance, you can select and use the "Crop" option from BetterBugs. Take your mouse cursor over the screen area you want to capture.
Click and hold your mouse button and drag over to select the part you need to capture. It creates a snipped screenshot. Developer tools information is added automatically to it as well.
There you have it, you just captured your first bug. 😁

Step 4 # Uploading the Report To Workspace ✅

Next, you can add the required details in the generated report.
Adding a Title is mandatory before you hit that green "Upload" button. Once you add a title to the bug report and hit the "Upload" button, there you have it. Your link is generated and copied to the clipboard automatically.
You can also add the following to your bug report:
  • Custom tags: Up to 10 tags
