... to which ntxdave replied:
When Google owned SketchUp, they had a webportal for doing this kind of thing, that was basically meaningless.
It allowed users to post Feature Requests, and others to then "Like" or "Dislike" them. A logged in user could see those they had "liked" and "disliked", etc.That was about it.
The result was totally emotional and subjective. It told the development team / management nothing helpful about what the NEED nor USAGE of the proposed features actually was. Just whether it was loved or hated.
How could anyone possibly make any informed decision from such "nebulous" results.
And once again, it looks like this kind of thing is being proposed.
I once wasted a bunch of my time explaining (several pages) how the system could be made objective and proper questions asked to the userbase to collect real useful data about proposed features, (such as how often the user would use a proposed feature.) "Wasted" because the entire report was erased along with the whole forum. (Unless someone manually cut & copied it from the website.)
But I've always "liked" the idea of a public FeaturZilla system where the FRs were logged, discussed, closed when implemented, voted on, etc. (Yeah, pun intended.)
