Long back logs of important features. What do you do?
We launched our MVP: https://www.producthunt.com/post... and was fortunate enough to get a few paying customers and quite some free-tier users as well. We are bombarded w/ loads of features in backlog. All of them are critical improvements. Trying our best to manually mitigate these issues for the time being. Curious what you'd do in this situation? Currently I'm the only engineer and I know based on my experience this is a downward spiral (engineering-wise) we are shipping faster but putting less checks in place. Perhaps a good sign for a product itself. 1. find people to help (which might be an even more difficult task to find funding first) 2. prioritize and learn to live w/ growing manual hack and apologizing to customers in the meanwhile one of them is a critical bug fix, one of them is key to generate revenue, one of them is a long awaited feature asked by most customers on the platform. do people recommend any framework for this type of prioritization or has experience in similar situation?
