An alternative to Trello for roadmaps
Roadmap Tools

This article describes how to set up roadmap voting in a Trello board and explains how it can be done in Productific better and quicker.

Trello
Trello is a general purpose tool and can be used for feature voting and roadmap management. To set up feature voting for your product you need to enable a "Voting Power-Up" for your Trello board. In Trello you customers will actually be seeing a board with cards. Voting is done on cards. Your product's Trello board organizes cards (features) in lanes, representing different roadmap stages like feedback, planned, building, available. Via "Voting Power-Up" your customers will see a voting button somewhere between the copy- and archive-actions.
