We’ve talked with a lot of people these days in our attempt to help them become more efficient and happy. We want to share our thoughts and knowledge in a series of articles.

What we’ve discovered:

  1. It’s really hard to inspire a change. We realized there are the people acting like trained robots – do step 1, do step 2, use this tool, etc. No fun at work, no change.
  2. Some of the managers don’t care about the effectiveness of their employees. Hard to believe? Are you still using “good old MS Paint” to report problems? Still using tools and tricks from late 90’s, without a change. This is just the top of the iceberg.
  3. Many people are really fed up with all those old techniques they have to use at work. They know there is a better way, because they are doing it at home. Yes, you can spend less time reporting problems, for example, and more time doing something more important.
  4. Oh, there is much more to that and If you are interested in learning more, please sign up from here to be announced. As usual no blah blah, guaranteed.

Over the last weeks we spent our days and nights working on the brand new Usersnap widget. Today we are very happy to officially release the new Usersnap widget to everyone!

It’s now quite easy to match your site’s design with one of Usersnap’s color templates. Speaking of colors: we also added colors for the pen, the arrow and the sticky note tool. Apart from the obvious a lot of effort went to UX improvements. Not only can you scribble colorful feedback but color can also be used underline
