Just Launched! — A Better Way to Plan Your Next Product Launch

What is the hardest part of being a product manager? If you ask 100 product managers, they might just give you 100 different answers. But there is one common challenge we hear from customers — major product launches. Not a big surprise, really. Delivering a new customer experience is hard. And delivering it by a specified date is even harder. The number of details you need to keep track of can seem impossible.  Read more…

I have always known that the pursuit of money for money’s sake will ultimately result in unhappiness. My parents taught me these values. The messages were clear — if you value something, work hard, and make informed choices, then you will create opportunities that deliver intrinsic value.

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…

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.

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.

My Name Is Barbara Dinoff — This Is Why I Joined Aha!

Barbara Dinoff

Embrace the unexpected. I suppose my parents instilled this trait in me. In the early 1990s, they moved our family from Poland to the U.S. — sight unseen. I cannot imagine how scary that must have been for them to leave their comfort zone, immerse themselves in a new culture and language, and just roll with it.

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.

Few things make us blush. But the thought of customers fighting over Aha! licenses? That turned our cheeks positively red.

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.
