We are now designing our NEXT PRODUCT - to be launched in 2019 - something we are really excited about. Thanks to ProductHunt for driving some traffic to our new product page :-) Have a good weekend!

@jacqvon @hereripenebaker Thank you for the note! That was exactly it. Octoboard report to investors (and to ourselves!) regularly using Excel and Word. These reports helped us to set goals and beat them. Investors really engaged and we now see them as very valuable members of our team. Since April, we use our own Octoboard-built dashboards and reports and save ourselves a lot of time. Here is the link to the dashboard product while Octoboard for Investors in testing phase: https://www.octoboard.com/business

I wouldn't recommend octoboard in any form. I thought their UI looked slick and their native freshdesk integration was great, but when I tried to upgrade to a paid plan, the platform crashed. I reached out to their support team and was asked for more and more screenshots and proof, seeming offended that I had found something wrong with their product. They made sure to add the fact that no one has ever complained about this before, please send more info. They then requested I send a full screenshot including my credit card info. When I asked if they could give me a free month so I could get started to while they worked out their bugs, I was given a curt 'no'. Maybe the product is good, but their support team sucks.

@mrjoshvernon Josh, we have reviewed your communication with our support team. The reason why you received a negative response to a free upgrade request is because you used an f-word in a file name sent to a female member of our support team. I, as a female CEO as well the guys from the Engineering team here who designed and built the product that you seem to like, we all support the response you received.

@lararusso_ny No worries. Five more interactions with your support team and still unable to process payment - seems like collecting funds would be a priority, but building a product without adequate error logging will set you up for failure - especially around payment systems. Not sure what being a female CEO has to do with your product not being able to process payments, but more power to you.

@lararusso_ny ?Makers I am really upset with how my account and onboarding was handled with your team, especially "Jessica". We just tried the platform for our agency, and while we liked the platform enough to pay you guys before our trial ended, you just decided to basically steal our money and ban us because we were upset you were emailing our clients broken links. While the platform was overall very nicely designed and well thought out, it was missing critical aspects such as many of the newer Facebook Standard Events (Schedule, etc.) and also had extremely limited customization options of gauges. Overall, the worst part of our experience was the platform is literally broken. Every email sent out with the Whitelabeling option includes 2 out of 3 BROKEN links, which automatically goto a broken domain which your support said was something you would not remove or fix. Basically, every email includes this - Business Performance Dashboards • Automated Client reporting Both of these links goto a domain we don't control and it doesn't work. The support first said we couldn't remove this, then later said we could in a few months in a later release. I have a team of 6 developers, and it could CERTAINLY be removed since it's NOT A WORKING FEATURE. It seems to be a prerelease code intended for a future customizable template. The bigger issue is, I told support I would need to cancel my account if this wasn't removed, and they just sent me cancellation instructions. I had just signed up 4 days before and we already started to onboard our customers, so obviously I was upset no one was listening or cared. We aren't a small client, we have 80 different accounts right now. This would be a massive support issue for us, since the first client we onboarded got confused. I emailed back upset and included the word "idiots", which was def not right but when you guys don't even read what I say that kind of implies the word. I got a reply back saying I was cancelled from Octoboard by "Jessica" due to my communication and I violated my terms. I did not receive a refund and have not got a response since to get my money back. I have literally signed up for hundreds of SaaS products, including doing consulting and advertising for major brands and NEVER experienced something like this. I'd like to see action taken on this matter, and I'd like my money back.

@myhitboard Definitely. You will be able to create "Startups" within Octoboard for Investors. Add logins into Stripe or SalesForce, for example, and build independent reports for each Startup or Business. If you have one business, you can still use Octoboard for Business product (https://www.octoboard.com/business). Create separate teams there (finance department, sales department, engineering department, investors). Each independent Team or Startup has its own logins. You can invite unlimited number of users to log into Octoboard as "Viewers", "Experts" or "Admins", build reports and dashboards and share them on office screen, as PDF reports or host on your website if you like. Feel free to chat to our support guys on the website and ask any questions - we will be happy to assist with your queries.
