Smart users make purchase decisions based on what a product currently does, not what it promises to do in the future. However, we are a team that is very fortunate to have a loyal base of users – they participate in where we take the product. They do this by sending us feature requests, enquiries, suggestions and feedback. As an eager and agile company, we do our part in prioritizing features in our roadmap of updates regularly.
In addition to releasing updates frequently (every 4-8 weeks) with new and improved features, we strive to reward our loyal users with many of the things they ask for. For that reason, unlike many vendors, we aim to give you a better glimpse into what is coming or planned for down the road.
This is a living document. We update it frequently in order to reflect changes – sometimes driven by new priorities from our users (keep those coming!), and at other times by our ability to work on sets of features that allow us to take a phased approach on new capabilities. That allows us to get feedback and make improvements in subsequent releases.
Enjoy what we share here regarding our near-term product roadmap!
