Overall Satisfaction with Roadmunk

We use Roadmunk every quarter for:
  1. Prioritize, specify prelim reqs and communicate our quarterly product Roadmap.
  2. Plan & communicate high-level development assignment and sprint progress.
We also use Roadmunk throughout the year to maintain and communicate longer-term product roadmaps and collect & archive submitted product "ideas."
  • Ease of organization, prioritization.
  • Automated visuals, multiple views of same data. "Write once, visualize many."
  • Customer Support is responsive and very knowledgeable.
  • Product navigation is VERY inefficient for how we work. It literally takes 8 steps/clicks to "copy" a single parent/child Item from one Roadmap to another. Try it! I have asked for years for a simple "copy" function :(
  • Roadmunk has fallen into trap of building out new ancillary functionality (eg Ideas) at the expense of basic essential product usage satisfaction, eg navigation.
  • I would like to see more customization (attachments, hyperlinks) available within the item description fields. I want to draft all my Reqs using Roadmunk but as it is now we cannot.
  • Visualizations for Sales, Mgmt, BOD & customers.
  • One stop shop for product roadmaps & ideas.
  • Engineering task & assignment, project management & communication "above" Jira.
  • Def saves us HOURS per quarter probably 50 man-hours per year re: automated visualizations vs. yoga poses trying to use Excel, Jira, PowerPoint, Visio, etc.
Roadmunk has an actual product management workflow design built into it vs trying to use eg generic e-post-it software like Trello. Trello is better at free-forming prioritization, which is actually much better than (again) the awkward item navigation in Roadmunk, but the other Roadmunk advantages post-prioritization win out in the end.

We replaced Trello with Roadmunk for our Roadmapping purposes. For the poor Product Manager and Product Team that is incessantly asked "where is the product roadmap" by Sales and Management, this is the tool for you! Easy, simple, and makes pretty pictures for those constituents.

It is less useful for full Requirements documentation. "Ideas" is OK, but too hard to get submissions from non-Roadmunk users, and clunky integration back to the primary road mapping function. Needs an improved editing environment to fully express Reqs using this tool, but it's not that far off!
