New updates and improvements to Frill.co.

  1. Add an anonymous vote

    New Feature

    This small, but hugely powerful feature is now live. As before, you can vote on behalf of your customers, but now there is the additional option to add an anonymous vote.

    anonymous

    This is super useful when you want to keep your board and its activity private, or you don't know the identity of the user who asked for the feature.

    Anonymous voting is available on all plans.

    Thanks for the Idea Tami!

    Add Anonymous Vote

    We don't expose our Frill board to customers. Our sales reps and customer service agents collect feedback and then add a vote on behalf of someone each time they need to. Adding user details makes the process slow and unnecessary, when we don't need to track where the feedback came from. "Add Anonymous Vote" with a single click would help massively!

    Thanks Britt for the Idea!

    Comment Approval

    Currently I can approve ideas before they go onto my board, but I can't approve comments. This would be a handy feature for the Privacy Add-on

    New: We have added a new role for team mates. "Viewers" can see all internl notes and ideas, but don't have editing powers.

    Teammate: View only permissions

    As our organization adopts Frill, we want to grant certain users the ability to view private ideas (and private topics) without also granting them administrator access. Specifically our use case is for tracking certain ideas that are either internal only or ideas that are associated to a client specific opportunity. This will allow us to set our employees as this new role or granting this new ability while leaving clients at the default level so they can not see the private ideas.

  6. Draggable Roadmap for power users

    Improvement

    This one is for all the power users out there! Roadmap is now fully draggable. You then have the choice of notifying users of the change, or not.

    This is great for Product Managers who update their Roadmap once a month with lots of changes in one go.

    21

    Drag and Drop in Roadmap view

    The roadmap view is a very useful view of the feature requests, and it would be very convenient to be able to scroll through items and to be able to just drag and drop them from one status to another rather than having to open the ticket, click on status and then choosing the right status one by one

  9. Prioritization Matrix View

    New Feature

    Our new Matrix view gives you a whole new perspective on what features you should build next.

    Using this new tool, you can easily visualise Quick Wins and Major Projects, while staying away from Thanksless Tasks.

    priority

    Setup is simple... Make sure you have set up your priority framework here, prioritise some Ideas through the Idea admin panel, and then check out the Matrix in your dashboard.

    16

    Prioritization Matrix

    The current Priority scoring system favours quick wins. I would love to see all ideas plotted to a quadrant with cost vs benefit as the axis. That way I can see quick wins, but also the big projects that are valuable but will take more time.
