What’s New

Here you can read what team Weekdone is working on in this product roadmap. Over time we have switched from quarterly product roadmaps to more short-term (mostly monthly) design and development sprints. We’re agile and review our priorities weekly. Because of that we do not currently publish long term roadmaps, as they would be deceiving. You can still find our current broad focus areas as themes below. To access this page at any time, click the version number in Weekdone’s bottom right corner of the footer.

Sending product feedback

We listen to your feedback and release often, including daily bugfixes, minor versions every week and major updates monthly. Feel free to send your feature requests and improvement ideas to us at hello@weekdone.com. We’re all ears for your thoughts. We also appreciate any questions.

How we work

For background information: our product design and development is built on themes. Think of themes as our customer-focused product development goals. They are the improvement areas that need focus according to your input and our research. Under each theme we define specific smaller features that make life easier for you. If you’re familiar with OKRs – Objectives and Key Results – think of themes as objectives and key results under them as features.

P.S. Just like you, we also enjoy using the PPP – Plans, Progress & Problems – process internally in Weekdone team. Some of our older roadmaps in 2013-2014 were posted as PPPs.
