- Winston made this productHey Nagarjun, productboard now has a public facing Portal where you can share ideas you're considering, features you plan on building, or features you've recently launched. You can customize the tabs and subsections however you'd like, so you could name them just as you've specified. This is just one feature of productboard, but maybe you'll find something else you find valuable as well. Check it out! (Here's our team's portal as an example: http://productboard.com/portal)
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 have your same exact concerns about not wanting something overly complicated (especially since I'm a one-person team), which is why I've been using Canny. It's a simple, lightweight system that's very easy to set up. I point my users to it whenever they suggest a feature or report a problem that has already been logged. My favorite part about it is the Reddit-style voting, so I can see the top rated features and bugs.
Having just had similar functionality implemented for my day job I was impressed at how easy this was to get working and integrated into my side project.
Amazing and simple UI, SSL for subdomains and many more, fast and easy posting & great support!
- I recommend trying out Noticeable: https://noticeable.io The service is simple to use and is of great value to share your product updates. It offers team collaboration, scheduled publishing, etc. My favorite feature is the integration with more than 750 apps via Zapier. This allows improving customer engagement and reaching new leads by forwarding updates to multiple platforms and audiences in one click.
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.
Trello has helped me organize my projects for a while now. Since I work as a software engineer. An example of my boards is sort of where I create tasks then I classify them according to their current position on the sprint. For example I have tasks in different cards such as Icebox, Backlog, Current Iteration and Done. I have set deadlines all ranging from 2 weeks to someday :(. Overall a great product!
