Are there any hosted solutions that let you share product change logs with your users?

We're making a lot of changes and fixes to our newly launched web application. We'd love to have a "What's new" section that displays a change log (similar to what you may see if you are familiar with GitHub releases) to our users. Are there any hosted services that let you create a good looking change log? Nothing complicated - just a list with "New", "Updated", "Fixed", "Coming up" etc.

    productboard 2.0

    The product management tool for makers who care.

    Hey 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:

      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!

    • Productboard led to the death of spreadsheets and emails at our company when it came to product management. I've become a true fan of this solution and the great way it solves such a painful problem. Before adopting we played with Aha! who are a competitor, Productboard blew them out the water as far as I am concerned. Love it.

    The easiest way to collect & manage feedback

    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.

      We have started using Headway for SimpleBackups and we are very happy about it.

      We were thinking whether to build our own or use a tool, Headway turned out to be the right choice.

    I recommend trying out Noticeable: 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.

    Organize anything, together

    How about Trello? I'm pretty excited when companies share their product roadmaps and changelogs with users, and Trello boards seem one of the most simple solutions.

      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.

      Johnathan HollandI truly obsess over helping others..

      If you aren't an organized person Trello allows for easy to see visuals that help keep projects on track. The team at Curexe has specifically used it to organize our bugs, new features, staging and production stages of our development.

      When I saw Beamer on AppSumo a while back, it was an insta-purchase. One of those no brainer, shut-up-and-take-my-money products that solved a real need inside my app.

      It‘s such a great way to keep customers informed inside your app and offers easy ways to collect feedback with voting and comments — without the huge feature bloat of something like a Drift or Intercom.

      Easy, clean, simple way to present your newsfeed to your site visitors and show them that site is active and that something is going on. A big plus is a WordPress plugin.
