Recently we introduced to the community a new way to collaborate with Novell on enhancement requests, the Novell Ideas Portal. If you didn't get a chance to see this announcement please take a moment and check out what my fellow Product Manager, Jason Blackett had to say about Ideas in his recent Blog Post.
Hopefully you had a chance to look at the new Ideas Portal and started adding your own enhancements to the list and voting for those already in the list. It’s been less than 2 weeks since Jason made the announcement, I wanted to let you know how Ideas is going in its early stages for the Collaboration product line.
I think this is a great start in a short amount of time. I do need more input. I want to hear from the Collaboration community. This will be used in the planning cycle to help us understand what is most important to you. This information combined with regular onsite visits from Product Managers, will help us prioritize the work for each release. This will also let you see what other members of the community want to see in the product, and when an enhancement is planned, you will get an indication in the Ideas Portal.
I do have some tips from the early implementation of Ideas that will help us and help members of the community understand your Ideas and contribute to it as well:
