Today we released the ability for our community to vote as an input into future Xero business and personal features.
Deciding which features to work on next is at the core of my role, and our other Product Managers. As you can imagine there are lots of opinions and realities to deal with but the more information we have the better – and that’s exactly what feature voting gives us. It’s a great opportunity for you to add your voice to how Xero evolves and for me to take this on board when working on our roadmap.
I’ve spent this morning going through the most popular requests and updating their status – nice to be able to set some to “Completed” and “Started” and to know that we’re on the right track with lots of others.
Here’s how it works – you get 5 votes to apply to your most desired features. Simply log into Xero Business Community or Xero Personal Community and search through the discussions under the Feature Requests topic. If you can’t find what you are looking for you can start a new feature request. Once you’ve found the feature you want to support then cast your vote by clicking on the Vote button.
At anytime if you change your mind and want to remove your vote from a discussion you can do this by clicking the tick button. That vote is then able to be applied elsewhere. Note that if we release your feature we’ll update the status of the discussion to completed and your vote will automatically be released to you to re-use on the next feature you are looking for.
If you ever want to remind yourself where you have voted you can do this by looking at your community profile page.
So, if there’s something you want to see us work on, you know what to do – go on and cast your vote!
