Just Launched! — New Scoring for Better Feature Prioritization

How do you prioritize features? This is a common challenge for product managers. And for good reason — feature prioritization is an important and difficult part of the job.

My first coach was my grandmother. Her work ethic inspired me to push hard to achieve my goals, from competitive swimming starting when I was 8 years old to putting myself through college.

Even my husband and two small children are coaches in their own way, keeping me grounded and focused on the right priorities.

Products get better fast when the teams that build them also use them every day. Of course, we use Aha! to set our own strategy and roadmaps.

And ideas from both groups are often shared with the support team when there is a problem or someone wishes your product did something differently. Unfortunately, these suggestions rarely make it to the product team for consideration, much less onto your roadmap. Instead, the ideas stay locked in your support application or worse — lost forever in an email black hole.
