1.  Website review tool

Posted 15 days ago
Maybe I'm looking for a unicorn here, but if what I want exists, I'm sure you guys know about it.
I'm getting to the point in our website redesign that I'd like to send it out into the wild for a few of our stakeholders to explore and give feedback. Is there a tool where a user could leave comments on the site that I could then see? Like digital sticky notes that could be placed on the exact places where there could be room for improvement.
Is this a thing? A quick Google search of "website review tools" just shows a bunch of plugins to let people leave product reviews. Not helpful.
I'm trying to avoid getting lists of links and comments and trying to decipher what exactly the reviewer is talking about.
Thanks, hive mind! Bee warm!

Typically what I've done in the past for feedback from stakeholders -- is use a spreadsheet -- which lets them detail which page and section they have a review for.

I would sign up for a free InVision account.  It's a design collaboration tool. But you can add screenshots (there's a Google Chrome extension for creating and uploading these) and comment on them.  From your account you can invite collaborators to the project.  You can even create "hotspots" on the screenshots to link them together.

I'd be grateful if you used my referral link to take a look - it gets you a $25 credit too. http://get.invis.io/mecxEjg

I would second signing up for InVision. Also, Adobe has a product called Xd that has that capability. I would look into Balsamiq as well to see if they do it too.

Hope this helps!

@KaraPotter – I'm interested in this feedback collector, too. We're getting ready to do a website "refresh" and this would work for me next month. Anyone got a tool suggestion that meets the need?

I know I've seen a tool like this in the past, but I can't find it! Project Huddle seems to be similar to what you described as is built to be hosted on WordPress. I've never used it, but it looks interesting.

Thanks for all the suggestions! I'm getting feedback from staff on a different project in the next week or so, so I'll test some of these out and let you know what I discover!
I'm particularly excited to try Project Huddle - they described it as post-its for your website, which was exactly what I was looking for.
Have a great weekend!
