    Pros: 

    Perfect for keeping up to date w/ your core and personal workflow. It is the best product out there today.

    Cons: 

    I love the timeline perspective. But if small changes are made... sometimes that could be a drag.

    I've been using this product for a while. If you are an individual that deals w/ a lot of product documents, designs, decks etc. There is no better product than this to use. I'm excited to watch this product evolve because it's a big need in the industry as more and more objects and documents get bifurcated across multiple organizations and accounts. In the new economy, in addition to accounts, you may also have multiple jobs and that becomes even more necessary to stay on top of your workflows. Great timing for a much needed product solving some hard problems.

  • Pros: 

    I can finally find everything!

    Cons: 

    I wish it wouldn't hijack my browser tab, wish there was a way to have it appear / unappear like other plugins.

    I've been using FYI for a few weeks and I don't know how to function without it. I've gotten other teammates addicted to it as well. If you've never used it, I highly recommend it - it's such a great search for all the things that live in the cloud - and as someone who has files that are constantly sent/received via slack and gdocs, it's a lifesaver.

@usefyi @hnshah @marie_prokopets All I can say is, if you folks are ever looking to raise funding from low-maintenance, low-value angel investors, I call first dibs, since we go *way* back. Congrats on the launch. Cheers.

😻What’s up Product Hunt! Hiten and I have an embarrassing secret… We failed at two products in the document space before we built FYI. That’s why we took such a deep research-first approach to FYI. It took us tons of trial and error to find the problem FYI solves and build a product to solve it. We went H.A.M. on research. Here’s exactly how we did research on the core areas of FYI to get to where we are today: - For the homepage we ran tens of user tests on the copy to make sure we hit on the right value proposition and built features people cared about. - In our customer interviews and surveys, we learned that people need quick access to their documents. A Chrome extension that opens in a new tab was the best way to give them that. - We user tested the best onboarding experiences out there to learn how to build ours. Then we did even more user testing 👁️on our onboarding . - We learned that speed of finding documents is key, so we made sure the user experience was fast ⚡. People had to find the documents they needed, right when they needed them. - For pricing, we partnered with Price Intelligently to conduct surveys and learn what features to build, how much to charge 💸 and how to create our pricing page. - In interviews and user tests, we learned how important security is to people. So we build FYI in a way that addressed concerns and we created a security page to explain what we do. - We used Product Hunt Ship to find people to use FYI, get feedback 💖and iterate FYI, share information about FYI, and conduct surveys. If you have questions about how we did research to build and iterate FYI, ask away! We ❤️ sharing how we build product, learn and iterate.

@marie_prokopets Hi Marie, thanks for the sharing of your research process. I’m curious, what do you know now you wish you know earlier before you start your customer research process? Also, what’s the most time consuming process in the research and how you accelerate that process? Thanks in advance Marie!
Marie ProkopetsMaker@marie_prokopets · Co-founder of FYI 😻
@iqbal_rafi Good questions! I wish we had realized how important this level of deep research was. We would have learned about the problem FYI solves much earlier and we wouldn't have had to fail at a few products to get here today :) The most time consuming process is interviews - either doing customer development calls or transcribing and analyzing user test interviews. I haven't figured out a way to make it faster - but it pays back one hundred fold so it's totally worth it!
@iqbal_rafi @marie_prokopets Hey Marie, this research process would make a very nice blog article :). I'd be super interested to read more about it!
I have been a beta tester for a long time and I am a very happy customer. At the base level it is solving a complex problem. Is it perfect? No, but for a beta product it is as complete as you expect an early stage product can be. I have a lot of feature requests, but no complaints.

@om Thanks Om! We are ready for your feature requests 😺

This is awesome @hnshah and @marie_prokopets ! A few friends and I built Pouch https://www.producthunt.com/post... for a class project, attacking the all-too-common problem of "finding the right file." I really like what you have built, and think it does a much better job over that same problem-area our group was excited about. This is a product that must exist! Nice job! :)

@marie_prokopets @jrdngonen Awesome! It's a big problem for sure! Here's the story of how we got to the problem and idea for FYI: https://medium.com/@hnshah/find-...

I just signed up: the user onboarding is just ... perfect. Simple, fast, friendly. Fragmented knowledge across different services is a huge problem, and FYI is so brilliant it makes it look like a simple one. The bonus is that @hnshah and @marie_prokopets have been very transparent and shared every single step of the product building process in the ProductHabits newsletter. Thanks a lot for that, and keep inspiring us!

@hnshah @chevreuil thanks so much for this feedback! We're eager to keep iterating FYI to make it even better for you :) so please share any and all feedback. We've had such a fun time sharing our journey, let us know if there's anything else you want to hear that we haven't shared yet :)
