So you've been invited to use the Contributor Sidebar, we'll walk you through what this means and how to start using it.
What is the Contributor Sidebar?
The UserVoice contributor sidebar is a bookmarklet which can be opened on top of any web page or app. This will allow you to capture feedback from your customers and associate it with ideas in UserVoice.
How do I install the Sidebar?
You should have received a link to navigate to the Contributor Console. Once there, you can click your profile (top-right corner), and select Install Sidebar. Opening that link will take you to the UserVoice Contributor Sidebar installation page. Follow the instructions on the installation page to add the Sidebar as a bookmark in your browser.
Alternatively, you can replace the UserVoice URL with your own and go straight to the installation page →
That's it - you're done! You can now click the sidebar bookmark to open it on top of any web page. Now that you have it set up, let's walk you through how to use it. This document will explain the basics.
Common QuestionsQ: Why does the sidebar load in a new window?
A: If the website you are on blocks unknown scripts from loading, the pop up will open in a new window. This is true for websites like Salesforce Lightning, Twitter, Github, and Intercom.
Note: The pop up is not supported with FireFox, so if you are on one of those sites, you will need to use a different browser.
