What is the Cloudbeds idea board?

The Cloudbeds idea board is a tool used to create and manage new ideas, feature requests or enhancements for consideration on the product roadmap. As a customer, you will now be able to access the idea board to upvote and create new feature requests, as well as see the status of an existing feature. All application development will be included in the idea board, no matter how big or small. This includes new functionality, integrations, minor improvements, and even text changes.

All customers have access to the idea boards and have the ability to add new ideas or upvote and comment on different requests. As a safety measure, all new ideas will be reviewed by our team before they appear on the idea portal.

After an idea is reviewed, we will update the status to reflect where it fits in the development cycle. Once promoted to a feature or initiative, a link will be created between the idea and the newly created feature. The idea will automatically be marked as planned in the ideas portal after the feature is created and all users on the idea’s notification list will be notified.

When the feature or initiative gets completed and marked as shipped, the idea automatically updates to reflect the completion and all interested parties are notified that the feature has been shipped.

Only trial customers and existing Cloudbeds customers will have access to the idea board. Myallocator customers will not have access, and at this time the board will be available only in English.

Why We Created the Idea Board

No one understands our products more than you, our customers. Every day, we get feedback from you about how to enhance existing workflows and ideas for new tools. Our goal has and always will be to make independent property owners’ lives easier. The idea board is a way for us to increase communication and transparency.

The idea board gives you the ability to see what we’re working on while also having a say in what gets developed. We’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response we received while it was in beta testing, and we’re excited to use this tool to drive innovation.

How to Access the Idea Board

A link has been added to the footer of the Cloudbeds application that says “Idea Board.” Clicking this link will authenticate the user and take them to the idea board. Customers can access the idea board directly through ideas.cloudbeds.com. But, if you are not logged in, it will take you to the Cloudbeds login screen. 

Submit your ideas, vote, and we can’t wait to implement all of your suggestions.
