ProdPad provides you with a tool to build a product roadmap, either for your single product or for your entire product portfolio. A product roadmap communicates, at a high-level, what your team is working on currently, what you expect will be developed in the near term, and what you aspire to do in the future. The ProdPad product management software helps you achieve that.
The product roadmap is based on a roadmap template that has 3 columns: Current, Near term, and Future.
Each of these columns is customizable, even allowing you to change the headings to your liking. Within each column, you can create and manage a set of roadmap cards, high level groups or chunks of work that you anticipate working on (some of you working with Agile product management and development will know these as Epics).
Move cards around on your roadmap very easily with a drag and drop interface.
Connected to your backlog
The roadmap you build is connected to your backlog of product ideas. As you and your team capture ideas and build upon them, they can be added to the roadmap. This communicates to your team and your stakeholders that their idea or feature request is lining up to be done.
It links your strategic roadmap to your day-to-day work as a Product Manager.
Individual user stories can also be linked to cards on the roadmap, much as you would tie in user stories to Epics in an Agile product development environment.
Easy to understand
Instead of being a bloated Gantt-chart style of roadmap, the product roadmap you will build on ProdPad will be simple to understand, yet able to convey a lot of information about where the product is going in the future.
At a click of a button, anyone on your team can see which ideas and feature requests are related to your roadmap cards. It gives your roadmap context that it would otherwise be missing.
Your product roadmap needs to be able to tell your entire team and other stakeholders what is on the horizon for your product. Our product roadmap software helps you with that.
Map your plans for multiple products
If you’re managing a large product portfolio, you need the tools to help manage your product roadmaps and your portfolio roadmap effectively. With ProdPad, you can manage as many products as you need, each with their own product roadmap.
You can control who has access to each roadmap, allowing teams to work on their own product roadmap, yet be able to see what’s going on with product development across your entire company.
Collaborate on your product roadmapYour roadmap is not the result of just one person’s opinion; It’s built by understanding how the product affects all different areas of your company and your market.
The product roadmap tool lets you and your team collaborate on what’s being included in the roadmap and what’s driving the product.
In addition to the comments and the conversations you’ll gather around the roadmap, you’ll have an activity feed to keep you and your team in the loop.
Miss an important conversation? You’ll hear about it in your weekly or daily digest. You’ll never miss out on valuable input into your product roadmap again.
Export the product roadmapUse a one-click export to grab a copy of your product roadmap, either in PNG or PDF format. This roadmap export can then be sent around by email, added to presentations, or printed off for easy access or to be pinned to your office wall.
Your product roadmap allows everyone to see when you’ll be looking to move forward on their ideas. Quickly and easily build and export your roadmap to share with your key stakeholders.
