New Client Releases Focus on Sessions, Real Time Configuration, and Logging

net-3.5.0-js-1.4.0Exceptionless.NET v3.5.0 and Exceptionless.JavaScript v1.4.0 have been released and they are chock full of new features and feature improvements!

There weren’t a whole lot of bug fixes with these releases. Could it be that Exceptionless is working and we’ve squelched most of the bugs? We think so!

Notably, we focused on sessions, real time configuration, and logging, all of which we think you’ll find super helpful.

Replacing DIY Exception Logging with Exceptionless – Case Study

referral-rock-logoToday we bring you a case study from the founder of Referral Rock and serial entrepreneur, Joshua Ho.

Referral Rock is a referral platform for small businesses that Josh created after he “… realized small businesses lacked the tools to make a customer referral program work.” The app allows businesses to easily and effectively create, implement, and administer a rock-solid referral program to help grow their business.

Exceptionless recently became a part of Referral Rock’s exception reporting and logging toolkit, replacing Joshua’s home-grown exception logging solutions, and here are his thoughts!

Track and View User Session Data – New Exceptionless Feature!

app user session logging

To many, this feature may be the missing piece… that connection you’ve always wanted to make between users, bugs, exceptions, app events, etc. I’m talking about, of course, user session tracking!

The Power of Real-time Project Settings

Did you know there are customizable server/client configuration values within your Exceptionless Project’s settings? Well now you do – and knowing’s half the battle!

These project level settings are a dictionary of key value pairs (string key, string value). They are defined server-side and automatically pushed to the client when they are updated. Using this feature allows you to control what you send without redeploying your app, which we think is pretty cool! (more…)

Sending Log Messages to Exceptionless

Exceptionless Log Message EventsWe’re all about exceptions, but sometimes, as developers, we run into bugs that don’t throw them but still cause major havoc in the system. There are also times we just need to record an event with a custom message to help track down bottlenecks, etc.

That’s where Exceptionless meets log messages.

In Exceptionless 2.0, you can now send custom log messages to a Log Messages dashboard where they can be tracked and view just like exceptions and other events.

Lets take a closer look… (more…)

Logging Feature Usages with Exceptionless

Exceptionless Feature UsageThe ability to log feature usages is one of the many new… features… of Exceptionless 2.0.

If you want to know when a button is being clicked, or what users are doing certain tasks, feature usage logging will help you track and visualize each occurrence.

What you learn from logging these types of feature usages might surprise you, and at the very least you’ll know more about how users interact with your system. (more…)
