Your Support Website: Test Drive the New Bug Search Tool
When we reviewed all the feedback on Bug Toolkit and began designing its successor, a few "must haves" stood out. We heard you and others calling for:
- Faster searches
- More precise results
- Better overall tool performance
As we went to work on these requirements for the new Bug Search Tool we added other features to smooth the ride. You can now rate bug descriptions and see average user ratings. We also tried to give you easier ways to watch bugs, save searches, and manage your notifications.
Are we hitting the mark with this beta version of Bug Search Tool? We'd like you to test drive it, tell us how it works for you, and help us make sure that the refined version clears the bar we've set together.
Please try out the Bug Search Tool now.
