How Reactions on your release notes can up your product game 🎳

Good communication is at the centre of how products thrive, just like relationships. In the bustling digital realm, we’re no longer in a monologue setting. Products chat, and users respond back. Welcome to the intricate symphony of release notes.

Direct Communication with Users

Release notes aren’t just record keeping documents. They are the equivalent of open letters, saying “Here’s what we’ve fixed, refined, or added—just for you.” Remember the last time an app you loved introduced a nifty feature you had been eagerly waiting for? It must have felt like the app developers were were reading your mind, didn’t it?

Enhancing Product Usability & Relevance

Beyond aesthetics and formalities, release notes help users stay abreast of security updates, critical fixes, and underlying tweaks that might not be immediately evident. Feedback on these allows teams to prioritize their product roadmap. And that button color you didn’t like? Your feedback might just make it the most debated topic at the next product meeting.

Building Community & Trust

The user-product relationship is special. It’s built on trust. When users feel their voice matters, they transform from passive users to active community members. They evangelize, advocate, and most importantly, they stay.

The Analytics Behind Feedback

While likes and dislikes are direct feedback forms, they also offer indirect insights. A sudden spike in dislikes? Perhaps a critical feature isn’t sitting well. Consistent likes across releases? The development team is on fire!

Announcing Reactions on Release Pages (Automated release notes app for Jira)

We’ve listened, iterated, and now we’re ecstatic to unveil the Like/Unlike reactions in the Automated Release Notes App for Jira. Think of it as your personal feedback thermometer, but without the cold touch!


How It Works

Visit any release page where anonymous reactions are turned on, and those new reaction buttons will be waiting for your click. It’s intuitive, straightforward, and so easy that even your tech-averse uncle can give it a whirl.

Benefits Beyond the Clicks

While the immediate advantage is clear, the long-term benefits are manifold:

  • Quick Feedback Loops: Development teams no longer need to wait for lengthy feedback emails. A quick glance at the reactions, and they’re in the know.
  • User Sentiment Analysis: Over time, these reactions can be mapped to understand user sentiment trends, giving priceless insights into overall product reception.

Why This Feature Matters

Products, like people, crave validation and direction. Your feedback is the guiding star, directing them towards perfection. And sometimes, a simple like or dislike speaks volumes.



The dance between products and users is intricate. It’s about listening, adapting, and evolving. With the latest feature in our Automated Release Notes App for Jira, we’ve just added a new step to this dance. So, come, let’s make product development a harmonious waltz!
