@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!

@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.

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:

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.

trying my best.
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! :)

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!

It’s a bit difficult to explain. At first, I didn’t like how this took my “new tab” over in Chrome. Now, I think that’s a must. Part of the value of FYI is in its presence when you open new tabs and to allow you to peek easily at recently updated documents in your world In a “timeline“ style view. docs are grouped logIcallt by day In reverse chronological order by date updated. This tends to allow you quick access to frequently accessed documents. Most notably, when you click on a document, it opens the version you already have open (as opposed to opening a second instance of the same document). Those of us who tend to have dozens of tabs open know this battle. It's a great feature that i hadn't expected, that solves a real problem (that until now had remained an unconscious frustration). Memory, battery, and performance will all be improved by having less Chrome tabs running GSuite. The prominence of people associated with the documents alongside their picture is a great addition and does a much better job than the tools themselves at identifying who you are collaborating with on each document. I haven't dived much into the rest of the feature suite yet, but what I can tell after a solid week of use is that I have been pleasantly surprised at how this fits into my day, and I don't want it to go away. I don't think any one of the descriptions quite do this thing justice. The same way Evernote was when it was indispensable back in the day, the true value is when you have been using it for a while and you are able to find something fast. Being a product that one needs to experience to get the most out of, my recommendation is that you give it a try for a week and then see how you feel.

@handythinks Thanks so much for being an early user - and for this super helpful comment. We love that having FYI as your new tab is helpful to you. And that you're finding documents opening in the tabs they are already in helpful. Your comment is exactly why we built FYI, to become indispensable to our customers because we make their lives easier. Please don't hesitate to let us know how we can make FYI fit into your day in better ways than it does today.

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.

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.
