Did you know you get unlimited reviewers in ProdPad? Yeah, it’s awesome. You don’t have to choose who gets to submit ideas to the product backlog. Everyone at your company gets in for free.

But just because something’s free doesn’t mean people are going to use it. πŸ˜›

We know how hard it is to introduce new tools to an organization, especially when it’s something many people will only use occasionally. That’s why we’ve made it super easy for you to capture brilliant ideas from around your company without making anyone leave the tools they’re already comfortable with.

Here are 5 (free!) tools and integrations you can set your company up with to get those ideas rolling in.

1. Email Dropbox

email dropbox

We set up all our customers with an email dropbox so your team can send ideas to the product backlog via email.

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ Set up your own custom email dropbox

2. Slack

Slack ProdPad integration

If Slack is where your company gets things done, then consider setting up the ProdPad bot for Slack. Our Slack integration enables your team to “slack” new ideas to the product backlog by adding a hashtag.

Now, you can also vote and comment on ideas in Slack too – the ProdPad bot captures the whole thread and saves it along with the in ProdPad.

ProdPad for Chrome Extension

The ProdPad for Chrome Extension is the easiest way for Chrome users at your company to submit ideas to the product backlog without leaving the tab. Set this up once via API key – and that’s it! No login necessary after that.

Texting…we hear it’s all the rage these days. You can set up an SMS dropbox with Twilio and let your colleagues text new ideas to the product backlog.

Yep, for everything else, Zapier to the rescue. We offer our customers unlimited integrations with Zapier, which means you can connect 500+ apps to ProdPad with just a few clicks.
