Just Launched! — Import Ideas Into Aha! From UserVoice

by Keith Brown

You need a place to capture everyone’s product ideas — the good ones and even the bad. We get that because we had the same challenge. And you need a way to rank all of those ideas based on their effort and value. That means that you need to link them to your strategy and integrate them into your product management process. And that’s why we built Aha!

We are always trying to make it easier for you to get ideas into Aha! That is why we are excited to launch our new UserVoice import tool. You can now easily export ideas from UserVoice and import them into Aha! for prioritization and release and feature planning.

This makes it easy for teams who are capturing ideas in UserVoice to easily move them so they can manage strategy, roadmaps, and features in Aha!

The new UserVoice import tool makes adding your ideas to Aha! a breeze. We do this quickly and easily through a simple, automated import tool that leverages both company’s APIs and is built directly into Aha!

For UserVoice customers this is an easy way to build a beautiful product roadmap using real customer feedback. And if you are looking for one product management tool to do idea management and roadmapping together, you can use Aha! for both. The import tool automatically brings all your ideas over from UserVoice into your Aha! idea portal.

No matter which option works best for your team, the new import tool can help you close the loop between idea management and your product roadmap. Here’s how it works.

Import ideas into Aha!
Our simple, automated tool allows you to export all of your UserVoice ideas and import them into Aha! quickly and easily. You can import the idea name, votes, users, comments, and idea status.

The import will take place in the background and may take several minutes or longer depending on the amount of info that needs to be imported. Just be a bit patient if you have lots of ideas. Once you transfer the ideas into Aha! you can then use the bulk edit capabilities in Aha! to update the ideas or move them under different products.

Add ideas to a custom branded portal
Once you have added your ideas to Aha! you can proudly display them in a custom branded idea portal to give your customers, employees and other stakeholders a place to submit and vote on ideas. This gives you the ability to customize not only the look and feel, but all of the language that is used in the portal and the email notifications that your users receive.

Prioritize ideas based on value vs. effort
Now that your idea portal is full of ideas, it’s time to prioritize the ones that will add the most value to the business for the least amount of work. Using our idea chart you can plot the relative value of each idea against the effort required to build it.

Promote the best ideas to features on your roadmap
Aha! makes it easy to convert high-impact ideas into features in Aha! and prioritize them on your product roadmap. When this happens, users who voted for the idea are immediately notified that the status has changed. This way you automatically keep everyone up-to-date as ideas get planned and then implemented.

Manage features on your roadmap
Now you can leverage feedback and connect it all the way back to your product roadmap. You can take advantage of the capabilities of Aha! to prioritize what matters most. This keeps engineering focused on building a product that your customers will love.

No matter what type of team you work with, Aha! helps you lead product with conviction and be happy doing it. And now with our new UserVoice import, it’s the only tool you need for everything idea and product management.
