Feedback directly on your site
GURU collects and organizes comments directly on your development website, atop the design, imagery, or website copy. Perfect for design feedback, bug reports, change requests or other use cases.
Team discussions without email
GURU keep discussions organized, on the page and out of email. Comments and replies are saved in the project archive so we can refer to them later.
An organized, visual to-do list
GURU use comments as a list of pending design, development, and copy tasks. We mark comments complete when they’re finished, and track remaining items as a visual todo list.
