By default, all ideas come with two sections: Requirements and Customer feedback.
The requirements section includes a business case that asks four questions:
- What problem are you trying to solve?
- What value would it provide if it were solved?
- Target Outcomes
- Actual Outcomes
This is to encourage all users to think about the problem rather than pitching you a solution, which is then backed up and validated by any feedback you receive.
Using the Target Outcomes section will also allow you to see the results you were hoping for by implementing the Idea, and measure the success by comparing it to the Actual Outcomes once it's been released.
Ideas can also be supported, spec'd and validate further with other key sections. You have the ability to add these sections as needed by clicking on the +Add menu on the idea page.
The following sections are available:
These include title, description and acceptance criteria. Feel free to format these in any way you want (gherkins, JTBD, etc.)
This section is free text, meaning you can format it in any way you want with the available text editor. You can use this to add technical details.
This section is free text, meaning you can format it in any way you want with the available text editor. You can use this to add any additional notes for your team.
This section supports designs uploaded natively to ProdPad, as well as items from third party integrations.
Add any supporting files, including spreadsheets or PDFs directly to this section.
If the idea is a dependency from another, a duplicate, or somehow related to another existing idea in your account, this section will highlight the idea relationship.
