A new suggestion/wish list system using Google Forms

09 Mar 2019, 23:50

Hello, first of all I don't know if this fits here, please move it if it doesn't.

As I wrote in https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=62505&start=20 I think we can give google's docs/forms/sheets a good use.

We can make a form like this one: https://goo.gl/forms/nItLJDK9TRidYrfn1 (it's only an example) so we can have all the answers on a sheet like this one: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ppJS_Oi_4n3xy1ovogKzlUZ2cLw6kuxrU3CemlSitJI/edit#gid=597515411 (ofc this can be easily improved) so everyone can see what's on the list and make suggestions with pre-established format.
We can have all suggestions listed in the same spreadsheet (it's also easy to have each category in different sheets so it's easier to navigate).
This way we won't have a lot of topics with suggestions so anyone that's willing to help can easily read the spreadsheet and see if they find any suggestion/bug fix they can work on.
We can do a lot of things with this, ask if it's for v1 or v2, ask what version they are using, etc. also we can have a team with edit access to filter suggestions, mark them as solved, change its priority, etc.

What do you think about this?

For bugs issues and planned features, githubs system involving Kanban boards and issue tracking should work best.
90% of all suggestions are rejected - wouldn't your system just accept all of them?
I think for our purposes the forums and all the other places are good enough to collect suggestions.

That might be better! The idea behind this suggestion was to have all suggestions, bugs, etc. in 1 place where anyone could read it without going through a lot of posts / discussions. I love the forum for discussions but I don't like them for cases like this one. For me a forum topic would be the first step where suggestions get rejected/approved/discussed and then they need to be copied to a sheet, doc, etc. in order to have all approved suggestions listed in 1 place with a pre-established format, making them easy to read, write, implement, change, etc.
