Reproduce bugs faster with our new console log recorder!

Enable the console log recorder inside your widget settings. Every time someone reports a bug, your Marker.io widget will record Client-side JavaScript errors and logs of that exact moment and that exact issue.

These console logs get attached to any ticket submitted and delivered into your issue tracking or project management tool.

How to Enable the console logs recorder?

To enable the console logs recording, go to your Destination > Widget > Metadata > Console logs.

You'll need to ensure that your widget is installed and linked to at least one website domain. For best results, we recommend installing the widget via JavaScript snippet code. If you do not have access to your code, you can use the browser extension, although it might not always be as reliable.

Once the widget is enabled, your reporters can start sending in feedback. All console logs will be automatically attached to any issue and ticket.

Exploring console logs

When developers open their assigned issue, they see if any relevant console logs are available. Any errors, warnings, and other info will be mentioned in this link.

You can now click this link to see the full console logs as they were at the moment of the capture. It is like freezing the bug in time.

For developers, this is a great time and energy saver! No more unnecessary back and forth, no more asking for the same things repeatedly, and a more efficient workflow.

Supported types of console logs

Currently, Marker.io allows recording the following types of logs:

  • console.trace()

  • console.debug()

  • console.info()

  • console.warning()

  • console.error()

  • console.log()

Also, uncaught errors and rejected promises will be recorded and displayed in our logs viewer.

Shortly, we will add support for timings, profiling, and more.

This feature is available on the Team and Company plans. Check here if you have access.

Recap

→ Console logs are a very useful piece of information for developers to recreate and resolve bugs faster
