Using Bugsnag With MeisterTask

This feature is available to Pro and Business Users

Bugsnag is an error-monitoring tool that allows software developers to find, prioritize and fix bugs. 

Connect Bugsnag and MeisterTask so that every time Bugsnag logs a new exception, a new task is created in MeisterTask. The task will include the error message, stacktrace and a link back to the issue in Bugsnag.
