Smart feature suggestions


✨ Scale or Enterprise plans: Once you've linked a significant number of notes to features, Productboard will offer smart feature suggestions powered by machine learning. We'll highlight the most relevant features so you can save time and process notes more efficiently.

In order to see smart feature suggestions:

  • The note must be written in English
  • The note must contain at least 5 words (excluding stopwords like "and", "or", "they" etc)
  • Suggestions can only include features that are linked to at least one note.

It's easier than ever to convey relevant information to your stakeholders by adding user impact scores and tags to your roadmaps:

  • Use tags to display what type of feature you're building (i.e. improvement, bug fix)

Add user impact scores and/or tags to any roadmap via the Settings menu in the top right corner - don't forget to save your changes before you share your roadmap!

  • If any of your associated features don't have a timeframe of their own, you can assign the objective or releases' timeframe in a single click. 
  • Need to unassign a timeframe from a feature on your roadmap? Click • on a feature, then click Clear timeframe.

Jira integration enhancements

One of our most essential integrations just received a big upgrade. Check it out:

New features and functions ✨

  • You can now unlink and relink features and subfeatures from Jira issues.
  • Something going funky during configuration? Our new troubleshooting page will help you identify and resolve configuration errors ASAP. We've also expanded our Troubleshooting Jira Help Center article.
  • Using underline, quote, or Jira color markdown elements in your Productboard feature description will be supported in your Jira issue description field.
  • You can now re-authorize a Jira integration with a new Jira administrator.
  • Don't want to use 2-way sync? Even with the checkbox unchecked in your integration settings, we will still sync your Jira status to Productboard.
  • Using Jira next-gen projects? Productboard releases now sync with Jira next-gen fix versions.

Happy little improvements 🛠

  • Productboard will prevent you from creating multiple releases with the same name (which would cause an error during Jira synchronization).
  • Previously, a user pushing a feature or subfeature into Jira would encounter an error if they were not the owner of that feature or subfeature in Productboard. Now, users can push that feature or subfeature into Jira, and the owner of the Productboard feature will be listed as the Reporter in the Jira issue.
