As of current candidate release we do not ask that users report functionality bugs since we are fixing them on a daily basis.
However, we would greatly appreciate it if test users can provide us with scenarios where they received an exception error.
An exception error is when a Dialog pops up with a title of "Oops, that's embarrassing, what just happened..."
So if you see such an Error please let us know the steps to reproduce so we can fix all Exceptions errros.
If you can make a video using the free site: TechSmith it would be greatly appreciated.
