Changes Coming to Canvas Community Feature Ideas

The Canvas Community (that’s you) has produced a wealth of feature ideas over the last year and a half that have helped our Product team make Canvas even more awesome. An amazing 155 feature ideas that started in the Community have made their way to production Canvas in the last 18 months. That’s three times as many as made this journey in the prior 18 months. Another 200 ideas are now officially on Product’s radar. We hear you, and we’re acting on what we hear.


With your input, we think we can do even more together in 2017. We will keep the best of the current feature idea process and add some new elements that will help us gather your input specifically about Product’s key development priorities.


What’s the Plan?

We’re opening a new cohort of ideas for voting today. Ideas currently open for voting will carry on as usual. After this cohort, the current feature idea process will go dormant for a couple of months while we remodel. We’ll open the new and improved feature idea process in Q1, 2017.


While we are gathering input from you on what parts of the current process should be kept as is and what should be improved, you can still create new ideas. Community members will be able to comment (but not vote) on them. This will keep the awesome Community feature idea conversation rolling while we build the new process. You will have the opportunity to incorporate your best ideas into the new process when it launches.


We want your input!

We have a good idea of what the new feature idea process will look like, and we’ll share more information soon. We’ll need you to help us make important decisions as we build! For starters, please take a few minutes to share your thoughts about the current feature idea process by completing this simple survey.

With the "down time" during the creation of the Canvas Studio, can the voting time period be extended on the following?  Also when will voting open on ideas submitted during the down time?
