Suggest a Feature

Got an idea? Let us know!

We would love to hear from you, our customers, on what’s important to you so we can build features that will address your corporate estate needs and provide a delightful user experience. As ideas become better defined through your comments and votes, we will evaluate your ideas on a regular basis, and you can see the progress of your ideas.

When an idea is submitted, the Product Management team will be notified and then provide comments on the idea as it progresses. You will receive an email whenever we add a comment or we change the status of any idea that you submit or have voted on.

Your Vote Matters

Votes are important. Before you create a new idea, please search to see if someone has already raised the idea, and then you can add your vote.

The Product Management team takes many factors into account in order to decide what to build, and one significant factor is votes from UserVoice ideas. The more votes an idea gets, the more the Product Management team knows the idea appeals to a wide group of customers.

Tips on Writing Up an Idea

Ideas can take on all shapes and forms but to clearly explain what you are thinking, the idea needs to be written as a user story. When you write a user story it will focus on the business problem or pain point instead of the feature.

Why do this?

When the user story is read by the Product Owner it will assist them in understanding the who, what, and why. Also, the Product Owner can identify a solution that will benefit the SiQ Community as a whole and they can prioritize the development work.

How do I tell a good user story?

In the past it was long requirements that bored everyone to sleep, now we use Agile development and the written requirements are for the user and written by the user.

Format:

As a <role>, I want <some goal> so that <some reason>.

Example:

As a space planner, I want to drag a person to a new location so that I can assign them.
