For all the visual thinkers out there, how can you be sure that this bubble approach is the right one for them? What research pointed you in this direction? Have you thought of having a handful of different themes the visual thinkers could choose from? As it has been mentioned, people are locked in with current solutions and it is a big move to switch task managers, are you going to enable people to export their past from other sites? Other than the bubble funnel, what else does To Round provide to differentiate it from others in the space?

@bentossell Hello, Ben! Thx for your comment! The thing is that we’ve researched this by assembling a focus group of visual thinkers. Our team of developers had 2 or 3 different options of how the tasks should be visualized. After a series of brainstorming sessions, we created our unique main screen – the funnel, where each task is shown as a bubble and the task importance is represented by the bubble size, the bigger the bubble the more important is the task to be done. The title To Round reflects the concept of a task manager where tasks are represented as bubbles.

@anna_svirelkina yeah so are you going to explore any other themes of how they could look? How else does this differentiate to others in the space? Are people going to be able to export their current data from task managers into To Round?

@bentossell It's great idea, you know. Now we focused at To Round, but we research other themes too. And we will develop different products with bubbles, because it is in demand. We understand that export current data from task managers into To Round is necessary for users. So, yes, we will realize it.

@anna_svirelkina @bentossell Did you think about using the size of the bubble to represent the amount of effort involved? I can immediately imagine that having a lot of use for product teams to better understand and convey the amount of work in a backlog or sprint. I could also see value in forcing large tasks to be broken down into tasks that are small enough, both metaphorically and in bubble-size, to actually fit through the funnel opening!

@menzer @bentossell Actually we thought about it. It's really interesting. I would like to know the amount of work. You can write here or via e-mail: anna@to-round.com
