Strive for lovability
Create a custom scorecard to estimate the value of new functionality. Use a consistent set of metrics — like population, need, strategy, effort, and confidence — to reflect your prioritization framework. This helps you make objective decisions about what to build next and keeps the team focused on delivering what customers actually need.
Quickly rank ideas
Streamline your idea review process. The ideas prioritization page is ideal for scoring incoming requests in one view. Fill in the details based on what you know. Then sort by score to bring the highest-value ideas to the top. Promote the top-ranking ones that align with your overall product strategy directly to the roadmap.
Refine your backlog
Organize features that have yet to be prioritized into parking lots. Group them by category and rank based on creation date, type, or score. Define the requirements for each feature, working with engineering to get an initial estimate of the effort involved. This gives you the information you need to effectively weigh your options.
Set priority limits
Determine what to implement. Filter the features prioritization page by different criteria — such as initiative, release, or status — to narrow the list. Then, sort by score. Add priority limit lines to set expectations about how much work the team can deliver and decide which features are a must-have and which ones can wait.
Share your prioritized list to get everyone aligned. Discuss the tradeoffs — adjusting the rank order of features as you go. You can even create multiple versions of the list to evaluate priorities through different lenses. This drives meaningful conversations about the functionality that will be most valuable to your customers.
