Just Launched! — The Search Engine for Product Managers

by Jessica Groff

Maybe it was in an email? No, wait. You wrote it down on a sticky note. Or was it captured in those meeting minutes? How much time have you spent trying to locate that certain feature or idea? One study uncovered that most professionals spend about 20 percent of the week just trying to gather information. With a product management search engine, you could spend that time propelling your product forward. Let me explain.

With our new advanced search capabilities, you can quickly zero in on the most relevant results and find what you need faster.

You store an incredible amount of product management data in Aha! — which makes it an essential tool for organizing your strategy and product plans. Our latest update gives you the power of a product management search engine. You can use search parameters to quickly and effectively find those features, ideas, To-dos, and important notes.

We just introduced advanced search capabilities, including prefix searches and boolean operators such as AND, OR, and NOT. Now you can spend less time searching and more time collaborating with your team to push your product towards the future.

Here are a few ways you can start finding the product details fast:

Quickly locate related features and requirements “What did we decide when we first reviewed this?” If you have ever been asked this question, then you know how frustrating it can be to solve the same problem twice. Now you do not have to interrupt your workflow to answer that question. Select the search icon from any screen in Aha! to find the features and requirements you need.

Choose a record to open the detail drawer view or select “Search all content” to navigate to the search results page.

Review records sorted by product You can filter search results in Aha! by product and record type to easily find relevant items. In the example below, we are searching for submitted ideas related to international launches for a specific product.

Easily discover wildcard items Notes in Aha! are a helpful tool for storing and sharing team information, such as best practices. But maybe you are not sure if your note was named “Best Practice Guide” or “Best Practice Tips.”
