Wishlist | A Roadmap for future development

Josh Verran
Expert

I think we've all read the posts about long-requested fundamental requirements.

It would be great to see a roadmap of future releases like with other software...

I suggest you to participate on the upcoming user group event of our Product Management team: https://community.graphisoft.com/t5/What-s-new/Launching-customer-user-groups-in-Q4-2021/m-p/320047/...

From Peter's post:
"As part of our transformation initiative to be more customer centric and enhance our customer relationships to offer effective software solutions, we are launching customer user groups in Q4 2021. These quarterly interactive webinars shall be geography specific to ensure that they are held at a time convenient to you. While the specific topics for each of these webinars will vary, the themes will be around sharing and gathering feedback on our product roadmap, industrial best practices, technological advancements."

Thanks Noémi, that's a good suggestion.

It's a very good idea!

Previous discussion about the roadmap: https://community.graphisoft.com/t5/Wishes-forum/Archicad-Development-Roadmap/m-p/264386#M16606

 

Unfortunately, having attended the first "user group event", I have to say that it was more a presentation, rather than a brainstorm / ideas exchange session. I do hope this will be changing in the upcoming sessions.

Hi Emre,

 

Can you show me where was it stated or promised that the user group meeting will be a "brainstorm / ideas exchange session"? Or was that your idea of what it would be or should be?

I participated in some of the User Group sessions and I know there were several polls where you could give feedback about which features you think are the most important to develop, but "this brainstorm / ideas exchange" notion is new to me.

I would say it's partially the impression I got from the event introduction, and my own thoughts / expectations. When the reply to a roadmap wish is a referral to the group event (seen above in this thread), you kind of get the impression that this is a two way communication. Because the point of a roadmap is transparency as well as implementing user wishes. Most of the roadmaps I follow from other software have a function implemented for receiving user wishes. With the previous forum, there was at least a poll function. Now that it's gone (along with being able to see the previous poll statistics), there is no way to gauge if AC is going in a mutually agreed direction or not (user & developer). I personally feel very passive about the new features being added, and I think most people feel this way too - thus the frustration about the lack of a roadmap.

 

edit: The polls felt somewhat weird to me. Yes some of them were about useful features, but there was no indication of where the topic for the polls / features came from. Were they picked from a pool of ideas? Did the developers each state a feature they wanted to implement? You (we) have no clue. I can't exactly remember the features that were being polled right now, but some of them seemed so irrelevant when you think about the long withstanding wishes.

Emre, 

 

Today, I had a bit of a discussion with Graphisoft Product Success department about your question and I was informed that Graphisoft Product Success has the exact thing in mind you talked about and aims to move toward that format as much as possible in the future. It is just that User Groups as an event type has just started last quarter so it is still in its formative phase, but on the longer term, the goal is definitely to have a very open and active discussion with users where users can give their feedback, opinions, priorities and wishes to the Graphisoft guys so they can take all that information into consideration when planning the feature development and product roadmap of Graphisoft products.

It may take a few occasions to reach that level of interaction, but it is definitely the goal with these events - to get as much and as diverse user feedback as possible.

Interesting and good that you relay the information! Was the new wish/idea feature announced by @Gordana Radoni here mentioned in the discussion? If not, it would be great if you could check in on it when opportune. It's been 5 months since the release of the new platform and the announcement yet nothing new.

No, these two things are not related and they belong to different departments within Graphisoft. All I know is that they are working on implementing the new Wishes/Ideas functionality. I have no info about when it will be released.

Glad to hear that Laszlo. I think this kind of user-developer collaboration/relationship will really move Archicad forward to a great place.

I think this has been mentioned before in other threads that the Wishes functionality of the forum will come back in this Community, it is just that it is still being worked on.

Fair enough - I haven't been very active in the new forum, so I must've missed that. I've also previously read that the poll results aren't deleted, they're just not visible to the public. It would be great to see them make a comeback - perhaps as an aggregated sheet with the top wishes.

Yes, that is correct, Graphisoft has all the results of previous polls. I hope they will find a way to show them again when the new Wishes functionality is implemented.

Yeah… nah. It’s never going to happen. A road map implies a direction and a public roadmap implies commitment to the chosen direction. I might be new around here but I’m not a totally green. Call me cynical but I just don’t see this happening because “you can’t change the mind of a man whose salary depends on him not changing his mind.”

Given the rate of progress on other deliverables you are probably correct. We have now reached the stage where even new features listed in the upgrade release aren't completed until six months later and sometimes never.
