I wanted to ask the community how you’d like me to communicate TR plans with you.
My goal is to be open and honest with what we’re doing and where we are going. As far as I know, I share more detail about company internals and roadmap than any other CEO. There’s probably someone who shares more, but I’m not aware of them.
I read a lot of feedback on the forum that takes me sharing the roadmap as being dishonest and “teasing” upcoming features. We get a lot of questions asking for specific launch dates for features.
In all honestly, I don’t know the launch dates myself. This is the hard thing about software. At TrainerRoad, we operate on a list of priorities and work through that list with the resources we have.
Thing #1 was AT and Thing #2 was Group Workouts. Group Workouts was supposed to launch after AT but covid pushed that forward. As of now, there are no “secret” features on the roadmap. I’m willing to share just about everything.
So here’s my question to the community.
- Continue to share the roadmap in terms of priority (same as today)
- Only share the roadmap if you have hard/firm dates for feature releases
- Don’t share anything unless it’s released to 100% of TR users
