I very much welcomed the announcement of the user feature suggestion portal at this year’s conference.
I have the impression that there is currently a certain imbalance between the individual votes:
On the one hand those that already existed at the time of the announcement at the conference (or which were created by conference visitors shortly afterwards) - and those that were created now in the weeks afterwards until today.
The proposals of the former group were able to take advantage of the momentum of the conference, where probably hundreds of users were active on the platform at the same time.
I suspect that proposals that are submitted afterwards have a much harder time getting that many votes at all in theory, because the number of active observers/voters has probably (?) dropped.
Can you somehow address this fear?
=> How about …
- …collecting feature suggestions continuously, but
- activating the voting only 3-4 times a year for a short period?
(including prior announcement/launching on tribe29’s marketing channels… I think that would give a more accurate and balanced picture of needs.)
PS: Of course, I’m also asking out of pure self-interest - and would be happy if my proposal of yesterday got a few more votes than only 11, hehe (this was the trigger for this post)
