Marker.io Q1 2018 Updates: Asana, Trello Custom Fields, Templates & more…
The first quarter of 2018 has been crazy at Marker.io!
We shipped many new features and just in case you missed some of those updates, here is a very short overview of the most important changes.
Asana has been the most requested integration by web agencies & product teams and we’re excited to announce that you can now capture, annotate and report developer-friendly bugs directly into Asana with Marker.io
Stride is a group messaging tools – a bit similar to Slack – but integrates much more deeply with the rest of the Atlassian tools like Jira, Trello, and Bitbucket. The new Marker.io integration with Stride makes it easy to snap, annotate and share your screen capture directly inside a Stride room.
The screenshot can then be turned into a Trello card, or a Jira issue without losing the original context like the page URL, OS & browser versions and screen size.
Customizable Bug Report Template
For a long time, you have been able to use Marker.io’s built-in bug report template to structure your bug reports. The existing template is a good starting point for reporting more actionable bugs – Steps to Reproduce + Expected & Actual Results – but it doesn’t always fit the needs of all teams.
As of now, Marker.io admins can customize the content and format of their bug report template in their settings.
Trello’s Custom Fields Support
Thanks to the Trello’s Custom Fields Power-Up which lets you add text and number fields, drop down lists, checkboxes, and dates, you can add more context to your cards. But the great news is that whatever custom fields you have set up on your Trello boards, Marker.io will now make those available for you to fill out so you can create even more actionable bugs reports directly into Trello.
New annotation tools
Getting your point across as fast as possible is what Marker.io is all about. With a complete revamp of our editor, we are really excited to release a few new annotations tools like blur & circle. We also released the ability to upload existing images onto your screenshot, new keyboard shortcuts to copy & paste elements and finally over 15+ small UX improvements like readability improvements, special characters support and more.
Jira integration improvements
We made many small improvements to the Jira integration that will delight power users. Some of those are performance improvements of the Assignee field, support of the Sprint field, API token-based authentication as well as multiple bug fixes.
We are always looking for ways to improve our Jira integration as different teams have different Jira set up, so please let us know your feedback.
We are currently working on new integrations with Gitlab, Browserstack(currently in beta), Clubhouse, as well as many other small improvements that we can’t wait to get to you!
