Solve issues faster with customer experience monitoringPosted Feb 18, 2021 | 4 min. (830 words)
Thousands of developers rely on Raygun to help them deliver great customer experiences every day. Software teams can spend 75% of their time debugging errors and performance problems — mostly in the manual process of finding and diagnosing them.
Every busy developer should be able to reach the answers they need quickly — not just where things went wrong but which customers were impacted by errors, crashes, and performance issues. Better information means faster resolutions and more positive digital experiences for your customers.
That’s why we’re unveiling a whole new design and feature upgrade for what was previously known as Users. We’ve made it faster, more organized, and even easier to link errors and sessions to real customers.
Now labeled as Customers in the main menu, this is your new mission control center for customer experience monitoring:
- Discover session information metrics — like browser, platform, and location — all in one view
- Quickly view errors encountered during each session with a handy dropdown
- Get faster feedback on what you’re looking for with a responsive search
“With Raygun, we don’t just get an ID or some generalized data about users and the crashes they’ve experienced. Raygun makes crashes tangible by connecting them back to an affected user and their details. We can say: “John, at this clinic, experienced this particular crash at this particular time.”
Vidar Sømme, Chief Development Officer, Vetserve
“Users” is now “Customers”
The first thing you’ll notice is that the name is different. If you have been following our recent product updates, you may have noticed us talking more about digital customer experiences.
Many companies are asking how to prioritize customers at each step of the development process. The Customers page in Raygun can help companies of any size answer these questions and more.
Easy to use
The new look and feel for Customers starts with the first page, which lists the most recent customers visiting your site. You can also download the CSV file from this view.
All the session and debugging information is then just one click away — with a timestamp, version, browser, platform, and location in one view.
Note: Customer experience monitoring is most powerful with both Crash Reporting and RUM enabled. If you see either page is greyed out, take a free trial directly from the Customers page to see the full functionality.
See errors alongside sessions
The dropdown arrow next to each customer session will open a list of errors that link directly to the stacktrace and error report, making investigation much faster.
Real user experiences at your fingertips
The Sessions page remains one of the best features in your debugging toolkit for when you need context to session timings and errors. Each individual customer session is broken down in a timeline so you can see session length. Replicating errors is much easier this way, and eliminates back-and-forth with customers and support when debugging.
Fast and responsive search
The Customers area now has a more sophisticated and user-friendly search. Type in the user, find the error, session, company, or email and create a Jira ticket with the technical details to pass to developers.
No matter how many customers you have, you can rest assured that Raygun can now surface every single one quickly and with accuracy.
GDPR compliant — delete customer info from the app
The same user deletion mechanisms are in place in Customers to remove all information associated with a user (their errors, sessions and PII data), so you know you are in compliance with privacy laws such as GDPR when a customer makes a removal request.
There’s no need to contact us to remove data, the mechanism to do so is built right into the Raygun app. Just select the three-dot menu next to any customer’s name in the profile view for the option to delete a customer’s data. Read our GDPR policy for more.
