Just Launched! — Track Feature Requests by Customer

by Keith Brown

Where did your last three great product ideas come from? There is a good chance at least one of them was inspired by a customer. Customer ideas help you shape and build your products. And to ensure that you are making the right roadmap decisions, it is important to understand who is providing the feedback. And we both know that your biggest customers want to know how their requested features will be added.

Using our idea management software, it has always been possible to track feature requests from individuals. Today, we take it one step further. You can now quickly view and report on requests by company.

The introduction of filtering customer ideas by email domain allows you to see all ideas that have been submitted or voted on by individuals in that company. Uncovering and identifying feature requests at the company level makes it possible for you to see the bigger picture behind requests across that customer. This enables you to make more informed decisions on what features to prioritize on your roadmap and respond to inquisitive customers.

Even better, if you already have an ideas portal no additional configuration is required to leverage this new information. If you do not have one, it is easy to set one up in a few minutes. Here is how to get started.

Capture ideas Ideas portals make it easy to capture and manage thousands of ideas and requests. You can customize the look and feel of the ideas portal, as well as the language that is used and the email notifications that your users receive.
