How teams are using Livecycle.

Teams using Livecycle are finding lots of ways to 10x their velocity and remove friction from their product-centric workflows.

Use cases cover

Collaboration for remote teams

THE OLD WAY

Your distributed team is struggling to communicate. Developers are getting vague feedback on a bunch of platforms from the QA and design departments. After a lot of back-and-forth to try and clarify, someone schedules (yet another) team meeting to get everyone "in sync" and "on the same page"...

THE LIVECYCLE WAY

Livecycle's asynchronous collaboration tools make the team’s communication better than ever. When a new PR is available, all the relevant folks are invited to the same playground where they can leave comments on top of the product UI. Developers see the feedback in context and understand it immediately. So much for all those meetings...

Copy reviews

THE OLD WAY

You've just deployed the latest changes to production and you turn your focus to your next project. Suddenly you get called to an urgent meeting with marketing. "Why didn't we get to see the build before it went out?!" they ask. "We need to make 47 copy edits immediately!". Context-switch, here we come.

THE LIVECYCLE WAY

You open a PR. All the relevant folks (including marketing!) get notified that there's a new playground ready to review. The marketing team looks it over and you get their change requests by the end of the day. Everything is in context, so you easily address the issues at one time.

UI design reviews

THE OLD WAY

As a design lead, you’ve put a lot of work into the latest UI spec. You keep asking the developer to show you how it looks. You’re getting annoyed. But you get even more frustrated later when you discover that the comments you left for developers in Figma weren't even looked at before they released to production!

THE LIVECYCLE WAY

You've finished your UI design and it’s getting implemented. When a new PR is ready, Livecycle sends you a link to a preview environment. In a single click, you can review the latest UI. Use the built-in annotation tools you send precise, contextual feedback back to the developer who addresses everything with time to spare.

Bug reporting

THE OLD WAY

You’re a QA tester. You’re trying to report clear bugs but the developers don’t seem to understand what you’re reporting. You try using other tools to give more context but developers say they can’t keep jumping between links and tools just to undetstand a single bug.

THE LIVECYCLE WAY

Livecycle sends you a preview environment for each PR. It’s like a canvas that you can use to work your QA magic. Because you’re making annotations on top of the UI itself, all your reported issues include the full context by default. Developers love your bugs and fix everything.

Root cause analysis

THE OLD WAY

Someone just reported an issue, but you can’t figure out when or where the bug crept into your code. You want to roll back and compare earlier versions but rebuilding each one it’s a real pain and you’re left wondering what to do.

THE LIVECYCLE WAY

Because Livecycle maintains a self-hosted preview environment per-commit, you know exactly how to go about your root cause analysis. With the click of a button, you go back in time to any version of the code until you find exactly when and where the bug was introduced.

OSS project maintenance

THE OLD WAY

Your open source project is important to you, but it’s starting to feel like an open source of frustration instead. Lengthy feedback loops to understand comments from contributors and a growing backlog of features that keeps getting pushed off.

THE LIVECYCLE WAY

You install Livecycle to your project. Contributors get instant visibility with preview environments per-commit. And every bug, feature request and change is submitted to you with the context you always dreamed of. With all your free time, you’re able to keep your project high-quality and up to date.
