In this article, you will learn how your requests are prioritised by Happeo's development team
How does Happeo define different requests that come from customers? Happeo defines all request into three main categories.
An improvement is used when a current part of the product is working as designed but needs to be improved to ensure it works in the way that an end-user would expect or would want it to.
A feature request is used when completely new functionality is requested. This can be a new part of Happeo or just a single feature.
A bug is a current functionality that is not working as designed. This could range from some small user interface issue to an entire feature not working.
After the specific request has been categorised the request will be prioritised.
Improvement and feature request
With improvements and feature requests we will prioritise based on the following:
- The number of customers that have requested the feature
- The effort and cost required to build
- How closely it aligns with Happeo's product strategy
We do our planning three months in advance. Improvements and feature requests will take a minimum of three months to be prioritised.
With bugs, we will always prioritise right away and endeavour to release a fix as soon as possible.
