I'm using Aha! to plan releases and features ahead before they are linked to Jira in the parking lot (backlog). Before they become part of planned releases I'd like to find an easy way to let my team vote for the prioritization of features. What's the best way to do that?
Hi Alex — Thanks for posting this question to the community.
The best way to get your team to vote for new features is to set up an Ideas Portal. If you are only interested in internal votes and ideas, you can set the portal to private. I did this on my last product team. We set up an ideas portal and used it for sales/engineering/marketing/etc. It was only accessible to our employees.
This approach worked well because it allowed us to collect all ideas in one central place. With the latest Slack integration, you can also create ideas directly from Slack and send them to Aha! without leaving Slack. It's really useful for capturing ideas on the fly without having to leave the conversation.
Although votes will not carry over when you promote an idea to a feature, you can still report on them. You can create a list report of all your features, which idea they are associated with and the number of votes that are associated with the idea.
Do you think an internal ideas portal would give you the structure you need?
