Just Launched! — The Perfect Report for Strategy and Product Reviews

Product managers should be power users of their products. How many times have you heard that? It may sound cliché, but we think it is true. And we are certainly power users of Aha! — when we recently began to prep for our bi-annual company meeting, we found ourselves liking the hierarchy report. But we did not love it. To truly work for us, we needed it to include additional information and metrics. And we knew if we needed that, then you did too.  Read more…

Just Launched! — The World’s Best Board for Managing Features

We might be a bit biased, but we think Aha! is awesome. Perhaps it is because you often tell us how much you love us. As a thank you, we just improved what was already the best way for product managers to define and manage product features. Maybe we are a little full of ourselves — you decide. Read more…

Just Launched! — Enhanced Aha! + GitHub Integration

The smallest changes can make big impacts for product managers. You fret the details while working to see the big picture. You seek to capture valuable insights so you can build what matters. And you know that engineering will periodically need access to those insights as they tackle the “how” of creating an elegant solution.  Read more…

Just Launched! — The New Reports Dashboard for Product Management

You probably have tons of reports scattered around. I always had at least my product goals and their statuses, ideas submitted by customers, and features planned based on their value — all in carefully crafted spreadsheets. And I had about five different versions of my product roadmap. Now, imagine having a single, web-based dashboard for all of your product management reports. Good news! We just built that.

Just Launched! — Daily Digest Emails From Aha!

How do you get to zero emails in your inbox? Read on. We know that for many of you, Aha! is a friend, but a friend that sometimes has a bit too much to say. The type of friend who sends too many messages. It is possible that you do not need to immediately receive an email for each and every change that someone makes to a release or feature in Aha! All those emails are cluttering your inbox and making it hard to focus on what really needs your attention.

Just Launched! — Release Burndown Chart for Agile Teams

“Will this ship on time?” I bet your team is used to hearing this question. It should be simple enough to answer. But considering how many features and moving parts are in every release, it is not always a clear “yes” or “no.”

Few things make us blush. But the thought of customers fighting over Aha! licenses? That turned our cheeks positively red. We are very grateful to serve many of the world’s best-known and largest companies. Some of our customers who use Aha! across multiple teams told us it was not easy to ensure that each group received their proper allotment of licenses.

Just Launched! — Create Feature Templates with Preset To-dos

What is it exactly that makes product managers so busy? I know I often wondered where the day went when I was a PM. So, we asked the PM community on Roadmap.com to describe their work — in just one sentence. Responses ranged from “herding cats” to “turning ideas into businesses.” But there is one thing just about every product manager can agree on.

I feel fortunate to have been a part of four great SaaS product teams over the years. My experience has given me the opportunity to work on vastly different products that solved real problems. One thing each product and engineering team had in common — in order to ship great products and features, they were in sync.

Just Launched! — Visualize Status of Initiatives Across Your Product Portfolio

Remember the days before mobile maps — when you had to print out directions before you even got into the car? That is why GPS was so groundbreaking. Finally, there was a way to see where you were in real-time and quickly reroute when you got off track.

Just Launched! — Aha! Introduces Roadmaps for Epics

An individual feature usually does not have a significant impact on your customers. But when a group of related features come together to deliver a new product experience — that is when you truly create something special. And you need a way to group all that related work together to represent a larger theme.

Just Launched! — Customize the Cards on Your Workflow Board

Product managers are a loud bunch. We are accustomed to leading and leaders are open with their beliefs. Perhaps that is why there are so many heated discussions about development methodologies. But no matter which one you follow, the intention behind it is usually the same — to get more done.
