What are your favorite tools to provide feedback/recommendations?

When asked to provide feedback on a software product, what are your favorite tools to detail your recommendations? I'm particularly interested in the tools you use for LARGE scale reviews BEFORE the recommendations are turned into user stories/projects/tasks.

    Quip 3.0

    Work with people, not files. Now with spreadsheets.

    Personally, I think less is more for this. I think free form writing + including annotated screenshots (see CloudApp) works well. I haven't found a tool that forces a "good process" for this. And since every team/situation is unique, I think it's best to keep it simple.

      Quip enhances the idea of Google Docs with more advanced collaboration functions which is great if you are looking for one place to work and communicate with your team on documents.

    I use CloudApp a lot for giving feedback. Grab a screenshot / annotate it & share. :)

    Dropbox Paper

    Collaboration tool built for teams

    I mostly use Dropbox paper for giving product feedbacks. I love how collaborative it is! I can easily add screenshots, comments, links, and then follow answers to my comments from the product team. Always worked perfectly for both sides (giving and receiving feedback).

      Its a great tool for starters, For teams I do not recommend. there are lots of apps that do the same, even google docs is more intelligible when collaborating and working with. But we already have OneNote, Evernote, Word Online, with lots of features way ahead Paper.

      Use Paper to manage technical stuff and my team, and love it. Just the right number of features, document crosslinking and image embedding fits my needs exactly, and works for quick notes or longer documents.

    Hey Beth, Obviously lots of options already, but I would wager doopoll would be the leat intrusive and cleanest option to use. Give us a try for free first if you like (up to 50 responses). If you want to get contextual comments on people's answers then we can offer that too.

    Organize anything, together

    A public board that's organized into the "types" of feedback you might get is something that I like to use for different products, especially since that keeps other users abreast of what the rest of the community might be saying already!

      I just started using this with my marketing team at work, and so far it seems to be an efficient way to coordinate on projects. Now if I can just remember to log in and actually use the boards...

      Brilliant for managing all your project backlogs in a Kanban fashion. Including a list for the DIY tasks around the house.

      As a Marketer I use this daily to manage workflow, sort ideas around future content and prioritize my activities. My team collaborate and report using handy integrations with Google and we use it as a Customer service and Sales script repository to store links to docs and how-to videos.

  6. I’d like to recommend tool, it is the good alternative. For me, it is important to do not slow down your website speed.
