We're reviewing some processes at our organization and I believe the way we track and display our product feature requests could benefit from a refresh! I'd love to hear ideas or implementations that have worked for other organizations.
We make software products. We collect feature requests internally, primarily from our customer-facing teams who submit feature requests on behalf of the customers they represent, but also occasionally from our Product team.
Often, we have redundant requests or similar requests, and refinement takes a long time. The requesting teams are responsible for browsing already submitted requests before submitting a new ticket, but this process is time-consuming and often difficult for individuals not as familiar with navigation and querying in Jira.
I'm looking for suggestions on how to make that part simpler.
Other information that may be relevant:
The teams responsible for submitting feature requests and our product stakeholders can access a resource where they can quickly find existing feature requests submitted, identify related requests, and pull reports on feature request metrics without requiring strong JQL skills.
Please let me know if you have any ideas, or if you solved a similar issue at your organization. Displaying searchable issues in Confluence pages, Jira Dashboard gadgets, Kanban Boards, Structure -- I'm open to consider any ideas! Thanks for your thoughts.
I have an idea for you. The Customer Case for Jira app meets your case since it's the app for creating forums. In your case, it's reasonable to create a public forum to let all your customers or team members create a feature request. A forum is mapped to the relevant project in Jira. All the tickets created via the forum are automatically shown in the relevant Jira project. When submitting a ticket, a form automatically checks whether tickets with a similar description already exist in the backlog to avoid creating another one with the same request.
