There are three things can help you decide what’s important enough to make it onto your roadmap:
- Impact vs. effort - Assign a rough estimate of the impact and effort of the idea, then use that to map out your quick wins vs time sinkers.
- Tags - Is your company is focused on building up a certain metric? Are you looking to focus on a specific product? Use tags to filter down as much as you need so that you can visualize your priorities better.
- Votes - Balance what your users are asking for vs what your team is voting on to get a more accurate visualization of where your community stands on certain issues.
This will give you a starting point to figure out what things you can work on, and which ones are just a waste of time (or as we like to call them, 'time sinkers')
