Allow tech support to input ideas from tickets
Posted 04 March 2010 - 03:09 PM
Let the tech support upload and idea as long as it comes over in written form.
When an individual (with certain rights) submits a ticket, also offer the option of a feedback button on how to improve. This would mean that while I'm cursing out the software and asking for help, I can also input my suggestion on how to solve the challenge or to at least advise you of my concerns. Hey, make it easy for me to give you feedback.
Give me a feedback button in the control panel so I don't have to go through all this extra work.
I teach New Product and Service Development at NYU and what you're doing are classical mistakes. That's not good.

Hope that's not too big an inconvenience for you.
PS. About the lazy thing? If a person is too lazy to suggest or look for something then they obviously don't want it bad enough.

1) We can gauge how many customers want the particular feedback implemented. Maybe we didn't think much of the idea, but suddenly 4 or 5 dozen customers are chiming in that they want the idea implemented. Maybe we thought the idea would be good, but customer start posting reasons it would be bad to implement. Maybe there's a better way to implement something that a customer has already tried.
2) As developers, it's a little difficult handling suggestions in 5 or 10 different places. You get more duplicates, and you don't get as clear a picture of how much something is needed or wanted. It's easier to funnel everything into fewer channels so you can better manage the suggestions presented.
3) Suggestions that may not have got much steam at first might get a second revival following other software changes. For instance, customers may be averse to a particular suggestion, but once a different part of IP.Board is changes, it might make the first suggestion more worthwhile, so everyone can come back to it and reconsider it.
Just some food for thought.
