Let’s face it: Feature requests are no fun. This holds true whether you’re on the requesting side, or the receiving side.
Requesters typically feel like they’re sending asks into a black hole, never to be seen again. Receivers feel overwhelmed by a tidal wave of customer needs and market signals, usually submitted in an ad hoc manner via a slew of different channels — email, conversations, customer meetings, spreadsheets…
The problem isn’t that the two sides don’t see eye to eye — the problem is that the process for managing feature requests is cumbersome, fragmented and annoying for everyone involved. There’s a smarter, simpler way.
Our latest release includes some nifty updates that turn feature request pain into power. With in-app feature requests, anyone from your organization can submit feature requests directly within the Wizeline application.
- Standardize the process for gathering product insights: Enable any member of your organization to submit requests based on the customer and market needs they identify
- Quickly route requests: de-duplicate, edit, dismiss and prioritize
- Effortlessly keep requesters updated by sending automated alerts whenever changes are made to feature status
- Track the full lifecycle of your features, from initial customer need, to prioritization, to post-release
Also included in our mid-September release are some simple, yet powerful, updates to our resource allocation model.
In short, you’re now able to set a development budget for each release, and ensure that your prioritized features fall within that budget.
We also let you define custom cost units for each feature — whether you use points, engineering hours or t-shirt sizes.
