How the integration works?

There is a challenge which a lot of people in the tech and design community have these days: collaborating over visual content in an efficient way. The Kanbanize-Usersnap integration helps you tackle this challenge by allowing you to both capture the content and transfer it into an item on which your team can work on. This is done by using Usersnap to take the visual part, and then Kanbanize to transfer it to a Kanban card.

Here’s a quick scenario to better illustrate this:

Let’s imagine that you are a designer in an agency and you have to collaborate with one of the developers over the creation of a new website for your client. Unfortunately Jim (the developer) has inserted a text on the place of a button. Instead of writing a lengthy email to Jim explaining him where this thing is located and how it should look like you can simply send him a visual feedback.

Once you click the send button a card will be created into your board’s backlog.

And this is how your card looks when you open it.

Now you can start collaborating in a more Lean and efficient way or, in other words  – “Kanban style”.
