As the Web SDK comes out of Beta into a stable release, please note the following changes that may impact usage of the Web SDK if you already have it installed:
Our Web SDK has been designed to complement existing customer support tools like Intercom and Zendesk, not replace them. These tools are fantastic in dealing with simple questions & answers between your customer support rep and customers, but not so ideal for technical issues, which generally require your customer to share their screen and other technical data, and a lot more back-and-forth. Our Web SDK completely eliminates this problem. It also works seamlessly with tools like Intercom.
Yes. Our Web SDK integrates with Intercom. When your customers report a bug via the Web SDK, if Intercom is also present on the page, Bird will automatically post the link to Intercom, allowing your customer support team to seamlessly manage all issues in one place, continue to respond to the customers with Intercom, and easily pass on issues to the relevant product managers/software engineers.
You may have different teams working on different parts of your application, or your team may be working on several different applications at the same time for various clients. In this case, you can organize all the bugs reported from different sources into different collections by implementing the Web SDK with a different public app ID generated in the SDK settings page. From here, they can be taken care of by specific teams or automatically forwarded to different Slack channels or Linear teams.
You can configure the Web SDK to upload sessions to a specific collection of your choice in the SDK settings page, e.g., “SDK.” If you have the Slack integration enabled, you can go to the Notifications settings page to enable Slack notifications to a specific channel for “SDK” collection e.g., #bug_reports.
You can configure the Web SDK to upload sessions to a specific collection of your choice in the SDK settings page e.g., “SDK”. If you have the JIRA Cloud or Linear team integrations enabled in the integrations settings page, you can automate the creation of JIRA Cloud and Linear issues with specific attributes whenever a bug is uploaded to a particular collection.
No. Since the data reported from the Web SDK primarily come from end users, for security purposes the session permission status will be set to private by default, this is also consistent with any bugs reported by users with the “Guest Reporter” role from the browser extension. However, a user with an admin or full member role can still change the permission of a session when it needs to be shared externally.
The Web SDK is available on our Starter and Premium plan.
The Premium plan version of the SDK allows you to fully customize both the workflow and UI to suit your needs.
The Web SDK is also available to users with a lifetime Appsumo subscription. Unfortunately, it is not available on legacy plans.
