  • Pros: 

    GOODBYE SCREENSHOTS & LONG EMAIL THREADS!

    Hands down, easiest tool for getting feedback on live sites!

    Cons: 

    None so far.

    As a UX Consultant, using this tool with both developers and clients has saved me HOURS of billable time because we can get right down to the "PINS" and everyone can see the comments and iterations that have been made or are in progress. Definitely a must-have in the product development cycle.

    Pros: 

    No downloads or plugins necessary, simplest product in its category

    Cons: 

    I'd love to see an updated dashboard with categorization, sorting, etc.

    Our mission is to provide every client with the highest quality service, delivered with exceptional standards of professionalism. Not only does Pastel allow us to achieve this mission, it helps us exceed it. We’ve been helping our clients develop awesome websites for years, but have never really nailed the feedback process. Existing tools were either clunky, slow to onboard users, or required specific browsers or plugins. Pastel nails these features. Setting-up a page takes seconds, Pastel’s interface is clean and simple, and our clients need zero instructions to leave feedback using Pastel. Go ahead and compare competing products like we did; you’ll find that Pastel is the best tool for rapid feedback. Period.

Hello everyone! Very excited to finally launch Pastel to all of you. We are a team of 3 freelancers and for the past 6 months, we have been working with over 15 agencies and freelancers to keep iterating on a product we call Pastel. Pastel is designed for agencies and freelancers to make it easier to mark up live websites with feedback. We grew tired of seeing vague feedback and screenshots in long emails, so we built a way to turn any website into an interactive canvas and make leaving comments as easy as leaving sticky notes on a webpage. That's exactly what we are proud to show to the PH community today. A huge thank you to all the agencies and their feedback. We have a goal of serving 100 customers by the end of the year and we are 20% there. As a celebration of our launch, you can use the code 'ProductHunt' for a 10% lifetime discount.

@alokepillai congrats on the launch, this looks great. The workflow in the demo looks similar to the way we use Invision for design reviews internally but with the benefit of being on a live site. Will definitely look at using this for upcoming projects!

@stub91 Hey Stuart, thank you! That's great to hear. We love Invision. We hope to make website feedback as easy as how they made prototyping easier!

Congratulations on getting this out there - amazing to see a simple and clean way to have structured feedback around elements. I could see using this internally and PM/design teams as well as for freelancers to use to get feedback from clients.

YEEESH this is an awesome product. When I was running loads of web design projects, we desperately needed a tool like this to: 1. collect design feedback from a client 2. suggest web copy in-context 3. have project managers/designers collaborate One non-urgent feature that could be really great down the road is different permissions for different users. I could see wanting collaborators on a project to be able to see all comments, but want clients to only see select comments.
