How we decide which feature requests will be implemented
We receive many feature requests every month so we would like to give an idea on our process. Received feature requests are discussed internally and are ranked based on several criteria, the most important criteria being:
- will it impact all users rather than one specific user/school
- will it improve an essential process rather than something that is nice to have
- the complexity and time it will take to develop
To stay up to date with what features we include in our new releases you can check our changelog and our release notes email.
lightbulb_outline If your school has urgency to have a feature developed, we recommend to contact your Ans account manager to discuss providing a financial contribution to prioritise development for your specific request.
