- Other tools focus only on roadmapping, or just on project managing features once you already know what you're going to build. productboard helps PMs understand what users need and then put that info to use when prioritizing what to build next.
Using Zenkit for a few months now and can't see myself going back to my old tool. The team has done a phenominal job of building an application that addresses the need of power users, light users, and everything in between.
Edited my review to reflect the awesome response time to problem I encountered. Incredible, hard working team and their app reflects the care and dedication they have put into Zenkit. Keep up the great work, Zenkit!
- I'm currently evaluating Aha.io myself, and it seems comprehensive in that it enables every feature to be linked back to its overarching initiative and also to the higher-level strategies of the company. Also includes user personas and lots of other nice features.
- I love using Canny for product management because it helps me quantify user interests in feature requests. As a single developer with a ton of feature requests to go through, it's hard to quantify what users want. Canny lets users vote on their favorite feature requests so I can know what users want most.
- Winston made this productIt's the product management solution of choice at renowned companies like Zendesk and Invision. Consolidate user inputs, prioritize what to build next, validate feature ideas with users, and share your roadmap.
I've tried everything on the market and ProductBoard is the ONLY one that has stuck. I live in it every day. I've got Zapier zaps sucking in feedback from all over the place, and now with the Feedback Portal they unveiled, I'm able to provide transparency internally without frying non-dev non-designers minds with making them go into Jira (or even Trello I've found is TMI/confusing for people).
We've been using productboard to build our MVP and it helped us to get everybody on the team on board with what we're building and kept us focused. I love that productboard helped us also gather feedback from different sources (Intercom, emails and various conversations) so now we're processing the user feedback and planning our next product improvements - all in one tool. That's just the best!
- I'm using Craft for my technology startup, and it's a great, lightweight PrdM tool that goes all the way from conceptualising ideas all the way down to visibility into individual sprints. Provides a good supporting framework with nice traceability. Integrates with JIRA, too, and is really affordable - you can manage 1 product for FREE!
- Brittany Fuller made this productRoadmap is built specifically for SaaS or web-based products. You install Roadmap to your web app to use a combination of user feedback and app data to make better product decisions. You can also share in-app public roadmaps. Users can engage with your roadmap from your app and you can track their activity and keep them in the loop. We use Roadmap to collect feedback, prioritize our backlog, and plan our sprints. It's been especially helpful for creating beta groups and learning from our users over time.
I only found Roadmap in the last week, but I've instantly seen it's potential, and have really enjoyed getting set up and starting to build out a backlog.
I could see this being used for a variety of things, not just technology product management. I'm setting up a new impact studio, and we often take a participatory approach to developing ideas, so this could work as a really neat solution for us to centralise research and ideas.
I recommend Asana to everyone who is trying to get a more organized life.
It's good to everything, it's free (until 15 members) and you can choose from 2 different styles: list or board. You can create unlimited projects, you can share tasks between projects with a click, there are chat boxes in every task, it's user friendly and their help forum is ultra helpful even if you never payed a penny to them.
I can't live without Asana. Just the most amazing thing ever.
I've used a few project management tools in the past and Asana is the only one that makes me genuinely happy and more productive (at work and with my side hustles).
I can't recommend this tool enough for its ease of use, features and user experience. As a cherry on top, Asana's vision to help teams collaborate and do their best work is one that I can personally identify with!
As a remote designer, this is a must have. I'm always contactable and available. Super easy way to also have quick calls and communicate with other team members on different teams.
I'm a part of a ton of Slack communities but I'm active in only a handful.
Slack works to its fullest only when it is implemented in a team and everyone's supposed to use it for communication. Slack could/should improve on making the communities on it better by adding relevant features.
- Simple & highly customizable. Our High-level Roadmap, Concrete Specs & Customer-specific Projects are there.
Seeing how Airtable has progressed since it first launched is quite impressive. My only qualm with the application is the level of effort one has to put in to get a project setup. After spending a couple hours trying to set something up I ended up giving up and setting up someting in sheets using formulas in 30 minutes.
I have just started using it, so I'm still getting proficient at it. So far, I'm in love. I had been digging for a tool to help me with content management and strategy, and I couldn't be happier with what Airtable lets me do.
- I'm also evaluating prodpad this week too.. It has a load of great features and is clearly developed by (or closely with) product managers - they have thought a lot about what PMs really need. Would definitely recommend taking a look and comparing it to Aha.io
Wonderful product. Was one of my favorites, even though it had tons of bugs in it's first year, was happy to pay.
Then one of those bugs broke my account. Customer support is unresponsive / slow / sometimes just closes your ticket and doesn't bother responding to basic problems like "I can't update my payment details".
Then they lost all my data. So, yeah. Wonderful product, until I had to deal with Pipefy's support team, and they lost all my data.
I went back to Trello because of interface snappiness, but I do find myself missing some of the features of Pipefy.
- JotForm is the easiest way to create online forms and collect their data. Conduct market research and collect user feedback; your data will be automatically and neatly stored in the program of your choice (Excel, Google Sheets, your JotForm dashboard, etc).
