ProdPad overview

What is ProdPad?

ProdPad is a flexible product management tool for product managers and their teams to share ideas, collect feedback from users, create visual product roadmaps and prioritize product development actions effectively.

Product managers can use ProdPad to gather and prioritize ideas into a clear, visual and accessible product roadmap that everyone can understand. With internal comments & voting, mockups, user personas, and customer feedback, product ideas can evolve in ProdPad before being mapped out on to a flexible theme-based roadmap.

ProdPad's theme-based roadmap is designed to mirror the way product managers actually work - by constantly evaluating and re-assessing priorities based on customer feedback, internal ideas and market changes. With ProdPad, product managers can organize the ideas generated by their product team in one, manageable place. The entire team can also contribute and collaborate on each idea to develop them into a product spec. ProdPad enables product teams to visualize how much effort and impact each idea will have, in order to evaluate and effectively prioritize them.

ProdPad enables the management of all products and product lines, delivering a full detailed and high level view of product portfolios. Teams can map out which areas are to be focused on, and how they relate to the back-log and longer-term product vision. User personas can also be created and managed through user stories and user feedback, helping product teams to get into the mindset of users.

ProdPad caters for product teams of all sizes, offering starter plans for startups ($20/year) and premium plans for corporate customers. ProdPad integrates with JIRA, Trello, UserVoice, and Slack among others, and is available as a Google Chrome plugin. SSL security ensures that all ideas are kept safe and secure.

It's a great tool to collect, structure and manage feature ideas and feedback in 1 place. They also provide a solution for Roadmaps but we are not using it for this purpose at this time.

Pros
Prodpad Slack integration is the feature I love the most. As a Product Manager, I start my week reviewing feature ideas and feedback and I just need to open Prodpad channel to see the latest. Saves me time and so convenient.

Cons
I find it difficult to browse through all the feedback and feature ideas in Prodpad using search and not to read the same ones again. It might be just the way we organize it in my company still it could be improved. Maybe mark automatically the ones I opened just recently.

Easy entry, constantly being improved, great support and hand-holding. Love that so many of the team are accessible and responsive!

Pros
Hugely powerful. It shows that actual Product Managers are behind it.

Cons
Can take a while to really understand all aspects - but the release notes and guides are improving all the time.

Pros
It's better than nothing! We can communicate as a team on product road map ideas and neatly organize them into different areas.

Cons
Customer support is less than stellar, it's often buggy - ideas disappear and re-appear, it says it's offline when it is not.

Overall ProdPad is a useful tool to collect and surface client feedback.

Pros
I love ProdPad's Slack integration. I can view client feedback in Slack as it comes in - I appreciate that it meets me where I am workwise, it doesn't make me log into it's site everyday.

Cons
The default email settings are somewhat overwhelming. I received several email digests and marketing emails that became annoying. It was easy to unsubscribe, but I wish they didn't bombard me by default.

Ability to build roadmaps to communicate with both engineers & executives.

Pros
- Low barrier to entry, easy to get going right away - Visuals & ability to quickly create reports and presentations for executive level staff - Ability to capture & organize customer feedback - Roadmaps that aren't timelines/schedules!! Love that it frees you up to focus on the WHAT & WHY and not get hung up on dates/gantt charts.

Cons
- Seems like they are always updating but I could use a few more reporting features & features for resource allocation.
