When you enter a URL or upload an image in your Pastel dashboard, a canvas is created.
A canvas is a 1-to-1 representation of your website with feedback superpowers overlaid on top.
A canvas is not a snapshot or a copy of your website. We use our custom proxy technology to display your live website and layer comments on top of it. That means if you make a change to your site, the canvas is automatically updated. There’s no need to create a new one and re-share it with your team or clients - the first link you send is good until the project’s done.
Canvases work with any website, regardless of how it was built. So if your site is built with Wordpress, React, Angular, or any other web technology you can think of, if it’s responsive, or if it’s viewed on mobile, it’ll work.
Another benefit of canvases is that they work with multiple page websites. There’s no need to create separate links for each page or send multiple things to your team and clients. Just switch to Browse mode at any point to navigate through to any link as you normally would, then switch back to Comment mode to leave feedback.
All comments are organized in the sidebar by page and have browser and screen size info, along with a screenshot of where the comment was left. So you’ll have all the information you need to act on the feedback.
You can search and filter comments, as well as export them to your favourite project management tool. Read more about exporting here.
