How does Productific relate to this?
Productific is a SaaS to display a product roadmap and prioritize roadmap items with user feedback. Besides running the roadmap and voting online, sometimes it may be necessary to use a stored document - a presentation or a spreadsheet. For this purpose Productific also provides document templates. You are free to use and change the templates provided here, also when usage is not related to Productific. Just remember to remove any yellow text which is included to explain the template.
2-column layout, 3 column layout
For most products the 2-column layout will work best. When there is increased certainty in planning, e.g. for B2B products, the 3-column layout can provide additional details.
A version-specific roadmap with 4 columns
In enterprise environments with a high degree of customer engagement, committments and detailed release planning this version specific layout can be beneficial. It comes with three or four columns.
In case you're using Productific you can link the online feedback page and individual feature listings, to increase feedback engagement. You can also work without links.
