How Feature Requests Work
For the longest time, I've tried to resolve the problem of way more feature requests than time available to build them. In a way that makes the product better for the most people.
And where I don't get burned out.
So occasionally I will post on the group a poll with 5 or 6 options of what I might build next. These options are culled from popular suggestions and my own ideas for the product.
You can vote on any or all options. Likes count as 1 vote, Loves count as 2 votes. Benefactors get extra votes.
Tweak RulesOnce a feature is built, people generally suggest tweaks to it. Suggested tweaks that get 6 or more votes will probably get added to the feature if they're just that - tweaks that are easy to make.
ProcessNote: For new features or feature changes (not bugs) to existing features.
- Feature request is made in the Facebook group or Discord #feature_requests channel as a post.
- If the post gets 12 votes it goes on my "Needs Vote" list.
- When I need more features to work on, I check that list.
- I then post a poll with all features that got 12+ votes.
