zipBoard Integration

zipBoard offers a review platform on cloud to help you collaborate with your team over a web project. You can attach an image and mention suggestions, tag your collaborators, and do more with full transparency. Using zipBoard your colleagues can view every reported bug or suggestion regarding the project, and understand who is doing what?

LambdaTest is a cross browser testing tool on a cloud which offers 3000+ real browsers and browser versions. You can perform both manual, and automated cross browser testing with an online Selenium Grid. LambdaTest integration with zipBoard will help you report bugs directly from LambdaTest to your zipBoard instance, in just a single click.
