How to Use Our Development Board

What is Development Board?

This is a detailed guide on how to read our development board. Our development board will have the most transparency to show our product development progress. You can see/vote all of the community suggested features, our development road map, currently doing features, and next released features there. It updates along with our development progress. If you want to take the most benefits from our dev board, this topic can help you.

If you have any questions, feel free to open a topic in this community forum, or reply to this post.

Column Name

Below will list the convention we use when create column (category) for boards. From left to right:

  1. Community Suggested
    This column contains features suggested by community. If you want to suggest a new feature, feel free to open a topic in the forum, we will added to this column first. You can also vote existing features that submitted by you or many other users.
  2. Development Roadmap
    This column contains features that we decide to implement to our app in the future. Any features in community suggested moves to development roadmap meaning we are going to develop the feature. Features in this column can also move back to community suggested if we decide to not develop that anymore.
  3. Doing
    Features we are currently working on.
  4. v.xxx (released/not released)
    This column name will start with v and follow by the version number. Any features under this column meaning those features has finished development and is going to release under that version. There can be multiple version columns. I used to keep 2 columns one released and one not released yet. Any older version columns will then be archived.
  5. Won’t do
    Any feature under this column are features we will never add to our app. It is possible that we decide to move features under this column out to our development roadmap.
