To be effective at product roadmap management, you need to start with new ideas and have a constant flow of customer, team and stakeholder feedback letting you know what is working and what needs to be updated. You need to be able to see which ideas align with your product and business strategy and promote the best ideas into features. As a feature, you need to be able to further define the requirements and be able to promote the best features into your product roadmap and include it in a planned release for the future.

Product Roadmap Management
Maintain the full picture of your releases and roadmap for your product.
Products needs ideas to grow and these ideas can come from your customers, your team members or any stakeholder. With so many ideas coming from so many different directions, product managers need a single location to compare ideas and be able to see which ideas would make the best features for the product.
Ideas are the backbone of a great product and Product HQ makes the process of getting ideas and organizing feedback management as easy as possible for product managers.
Once an idea is promoted into a feature, it may not be ready for your product roadmap quite yet which requires feature management to track planned changes. Keep a running list of all of the features you have approved and add additional requirements and details to your features. Quickly bucket them into timelines you would like to accomplish them or park them for the future.
Promote ideas into features or create features directly in Product HQ to always keep a list of what you could do for your product and quickly sort and organize your features by using areas to group them when you are ready to prioritize features for a release.
Meet with your teams to check in on each feature that was promoted and included in an active release. Process each feature through your custom workflow and track each deliverable through requirements, design, coding and testing within a release. Quickly communicate across teams to ensure everyone is aware and on top of their assignments.
Maintain complete visibility into where each release is and clear communication with your team by managing your releases within Product HQ.
