We don't just log your errors. We help you fix them!

You may have noticed that we refer to ourselves as Error Management and not Error Logging. So what is the difference? Error Logging is the process of catching errors and logging them for further inspection. Most SaaS products out there, saying they do Error Management actually only does Error Logging. Error Management is so much more than just logging errors. Being able to notify you on Slack when critical errors occur or grouping errors to get a better overview of your current errors are just two examples of what will make up a good Error Management tool.

At elmah.io we have just begun an exciting new chapter. We still don't just want to log your errors. We want to help you fix them. To help you even further to do so, we've started working on a new tab on error details, simply named Fix. We have much planned for the Fix tab, but today we introduce step 1. Take a look at the new tab:

Fix Tab

The Fix tab shows what we believe is the most relevant Stack Overflow answer to the current error. If you use Stack Overflow (who doesn't?), you know that the accepted answer to a question, is not always the best one. That's why we have developed an algorithm, that finds the single best answer across multiple questions related to the current error. While we still tweak the algorithm, we are at a place right now, where we are pretty happy with the results.

So what's next? We don't want the Fix tab to be about Stack Overflow only. We are currently working on step 2 of the Fix tab, which will give you even better tools to help fix an error. Stay tuned to the blog for more details soon.
