  • How to use the Skwish Chrome widget

    Websites are a tricky business. Even if you and your developer see entirely eye-to-eye, there’s always the pressing concern of giving feedback to one another. The best collaborative effort can waver into murkiness if your thoughts are misunderstood.

    The Skwish team thought long and hard about this. We’ve managed to find a solution to the unclear web development cycle, packaged in a widget that extends your Google Chrome capabilities. Curious to hear more? Join us as we share the fruits of our labour…

    The problems we face

    As a business owner, the goals of you and your development agency should be one and the same. Coding experts have a duty to realise your vision, yet you can never just leave them to it, trusting the final product will be everything you hoped for. Understandably, you or your client want to be on the front lines of the project, overseeing the workflow.

    Before Skwish entered the fray, however, it was tough to pinpoint exactly what changes should be made as a website moves to completion. Bug tracking, misconstrued design features and the like would have to be reported over the phone, by email, or at a meeting in person. None of these options manage to explain your impressions in a concise, visual way.

    Comments and pinning abilities

    Just as a marked-up Word document reveals where alterations should occur line by line, we’ve conjured up a similar tool for the development process, one that melds into the Chrome browser for a fluid experience.

    Our Skwish widget cuts the fat out of online feedback for developers and clients alike. You’ll save enormous amounts of time and energy when it kicks into gear: the extension enables you to place digital ‘pins’ seamlessly on the website, giving your team specific reference points for feedback.

    These are linked to tasks and notifications, indicating exactly what needs doing and the urgency with which you’d like them to be seen to. As a free bug tracker, it’s imminently useful for reviewing a site before it goes live, or feeding back on an existing one.

    How do I get it?

    Good question – luckily, we’ve made it as simple as we can for you. All you need to do is download the Skwish app from the Google Chrome store. It’ll fuse to your browser, with the trademark Skwish logo on display.

    Once you click on it, you’ll be asked to create an account: we’ll send a confirmation email to verify your address. Then, a pin symbol should appear on the bottom right of the screen. You’re all set to begin pinning to your heart’s content, leaving comments and suggestions wherever you like.

    All of your bug tracking activity will be logged and shared effortlessly on Skwish. There’s not much else to say, apart from ‘good luck’ regarding your soon-to-be mastery of the fine art of online feedback. Our plug-in, however, isn’t the only motivator for your professional success; check out Skwish’s online project management features for a better communique between you and your team.
