Sharing your roadmap with your customer-facing teams


There is nothing more stressful for someone who doesn’t work in product to not understand how the product development process works. All customer facing teams are told often is ‘things are coming’ or ‘soon’ - or even worst, given a release date that doesn't pan out. This communication  and lack of transparency can become really frustrating.

You can fix a lot of these issues by sharing your roadmap. Open up your team communication lines and share your strategy. Share what and why you are doing, what the vision is, and what the steps you are going to take are so all your teams clearly understand every step, twist and turn.

A proper strategic roadmap is about communication. Opening it up can only help you and your team have better conversations, expectations, and even sell to customers better.

How to do it

To share your roadmap with users that already exist within your ProdPad account, simply click on the "Share" button on the top right corner and select available users from the drop-down menu. If you wish to invite someone new to join the account, type in their email and select a permission level to invite them in.

You can also create external versions by clicking on the "Publish" button, and either print to PDF, grab an embed code or a URL. You can even create multiple versions per team, customer, and even vertical.
