The latest from FeedBear

Check this page for updates on new features and other product changes.

Custom CSS

You guys have asked for it and we listened. You can now add Custom CSS to your FeedBear project, allowing you to customize its design to match your requirements and branding guidelines.

The Custom CSS feature is located under the Project Settings.

We hope you all enjoy this feature! Get creative with the possibilities!

Customer/Voter emails are now more visible to admins

You can hover on the name of a voter to see their email. You can also click on their name to open their profile and see their email address.

If you want to get name and email for all voters, you can click on the export button next to the list of voters.

Trello integration

We are happy to announce that our Trello integration is now live and available to all users.

The integration can be enabled from the "Project Settings" area, under "Integrations", and allows you to easily create a card in Trello, or simply attach feedback to an existing Trello card.

We hope that all of you Trello users enjoy this feature!

We are keen to hear your feedback, if you have any ideas, questions or suggestions just let us know.

Rename Changelog and Roadmap

You can now edit the page title for Roadmap and Changelog and make them anything you want! 

This is reflected in the link displayed in the header menu too.

Upvote on behalf of users

You can now upvote feedback on behalf of your users. This should be particularly useful for those who gather feedback from customers over phone calls and support platforms.

Pin comments to the top

You can now pin a comment to the top so it gets some more attention:

Pin comment to the top

Require users to login or register to vote

You can now require users to register or login to leave a vote i.e. you can prevent anonymous votes.

You'll find a setting for this under Project Settings / Feedback.

Require users to register or login to vote

Add headings and descriptions for all pages

Many have asked for ways to add more context to the feedback boards, roadmap or other pages. You can now add a title and a description for each board (by editing the board), as well as the Roadmap and Changelog pages (from Project Settings)

Filter and sort your Roadmap

You can now filter the roadmap view by board or tag, sort items in any order.

Feedback, comments and upvotes without accounts

We've improved the feedback form, as well as the login and registration processes, allowing users to leave their feedback without having to register for an account. You can now also login using a link sent to your email instead of providing a password.

Users can now upvote ideas and feedback without registering for an account.

These changes have the objective of making it easier for users to share their ideas and feedback

Custom homepage for your project

You can now decide whether your project’s homepage loads to your Feedback board, Roadmap or Changelog. The “Homepage” option loads a list of boards and your Roadmap all in one page.

Change this under Project Settings.

Feedback import and export

You can now import or export posts into a board.

You can use this feature to:
  • Export to your project management tool e.g. Jira or Trello
  • Import from another tool or spreadsheet into FeedBear to kickstart a project
  • Save a backup of your feedback

We added a "Not Now" status

This is useful for ideas you're not likely to implement anytime soon. Posts with this status won't show in the "Not Done" default filter for the board.

SSL for custom domains

We now provision and update SSL certificates automatically if you're using a custom domain.

Favicon support

We've improved the way things look when you share a link to your board in slack, on social media and in search engines.

You can also customize your feedback board with your own favicon.

Small things, but we'll make FeedBear even more customizable with the next updates.

UX and performance update

We updated FeedBear's design and overall experience to improve the productivity and happiness of those who use it – our valuable customers and their valuable users.

As FeedBear's features grew with our customers' needs, the navigation and other action elements became scattered through the workspace. To name a few problems – the search button was appearing only on certain pages, navbar items changed based on the current page. On the engineering side, there were many unnecessary or lazily used libraries that contributed to slow page loads.

Summary of the changes

  • Navigation: Persistent search bar
  • Navigation: All items in one row, until they fit
  • Navigation: Items are the same on every page (duh!)
  • Navigation: Added breadcrumbs to pages on depth level 2 and more
  • Navigation: Separated project switch from the user menu
  • Roadmap: Added feedback boards on the project homepage. This eliminates the previous "Where does your feedback fit the best?" page. Users can now jump directly to their board of interest.
  • Boards: Improved filter/sort bar, moved tags filter next to the others
  • Posts: URLs now contain a simplified version of the title. When the title changes, the URL also changes, but the old URLs keep working (redirecting to the current one). Old URLs with the ID still work.
  • Posts: Attachments can now be added by drag&drop or pasted from the clipboard
  • Posts: Attachments can now be added to the comments
  • Posts: Attachments show as a preview instead of the file name
  • Settings: Added email notification preferences to Personal settings
  • Changelog: Improved scheduling/saving as draft/publishing workflow
  • Changelog: Added default label color swatches in addition to the custom picker
  • Overall visual cleanup: Unified spacing, font sizes, colors, buttons, etc.
If you have any issues or ideas, as always, let me know at pietro@feedbear.com or press the chat button in the bottom right corner. There are a few more updates coming this year, so stay tuned!
