Greenbyte Ideas

Our approach to product feedback

Here at Power Factors, we take product feedback extremely seriously. We believe that listening to our customers, team members, and prospects - by taking their ideas on board - is a sure-fire way to build better products.
We use your feedback to identify the most important features, ideas, pain points, and opportunities so that you can get more value from our products as efficiently as possible.


The benefits of giving us your product feedback

If you take the time to submit your product feedback to us, it means that you have a direct say in how our products develop over time. It means that your ideas are valued and listened to, rather than filed away and ignored.
Ultimately, it allows us to work with you to build the best products we possibly can.

What happens to your product feedback

Our product teams meet regularly with the CSMs, to go through new ideas. Once we have verified that an idea isn’t already available in the system, and seems like a good idea, we change the status to Accepting Votes. Then more people can vote, prioritize, and give us information. This allows us to gauge demand, gather use cases, and establish impact & value.

If we decide to implement an idea, the status will change to Planned or In Development. When it’s done, the status will change to Delivered. Anyone who has submitted or voted on a specific request will be notified when the status of the request is updated. We will always provide an explanation as to the nature of the status update.

Unfortunately, not all requests are in line with our vision and strategy, so sometimes we reject them. When this happens, the status will be changed to Archived and we’ll add a note to let you know that it won’t be delivered.


How we choose what to implement

When we plan a release, we use many factors to help decide which suggestions to implement, including:

  • Customer feedback - there are many ways we listen for your feedback:
    formal customer interviews and other research activities
    events like conferences and trade shows
    comments and votes on issues here in Greenbyte & BluePoint Influence
  • CSM team insights - our CSM team knows which issues are the most challenging and most common for customers.
  • Product analytics - we track how users move through the system, which helps us understand how existing features are being used.
  • Product strategy - our long-term strategic vision for the products.
If you reach out directly to our support or customer success teams, they'll be able to look up the ideas for you, but they won't have any additional information or provide an estimate for when your item will be reviewed.


Custom applications

Sometimes you need functionality that is specific to your needs and not necessarily useful for other customers or in line with Power Factors strategic goals. These special requests are addressed through custom applications, which can be developed by you, using the Greenbyte API, by third-party partners, or by Power Factors for an additional fee. If you are interested in having a custom application built, contact your CSM.

  1. Host a Greenbyte/PowerFactors Forum in 2024

    The "Greenbyte Forum" event was a really good place to hear about the latest developments, learn from other users, and better understand the Greenbyte product. I'd recommend hosting one in 2024, particularly given the development of Unity, wider coverage of products under PowerFactors, and that it has been a while since the last one.

  2. Single Sign On and external authentication

    We utilise Microsoft SSO for our IDAM across all our SaaS platforms and Breeze should allow sign on with OAUTH.

    This is now a security requirement for all our platforms, and considering Breeze taps into to Operational systems, its a key target for these requirements.

    This is in our 2023 plans. We’ll let you know when we start working on it.

    Included in this first step would be the ability to use SSO from specific identity providers into Greenbyte and to set password/MFA from your IdP, but not to do full user mgmt from your IdP.

  3. User permissions: edition of existing alerts

    I would like to provide a Limited user with access to the section Administrate->Alerts, but without permission to edit the existing alerts (similar to the permissions that exist for dashboards).

    Thanks for your feedback, this is a great request. It’s open for voting from other users.

  4. User created content rights should be administrated not only by creator (Templates - Custom Dahsboards - etc.)

    As currently implemented - user created content such as Report Templates - Custom Dashboards - etc. - can only be administrated (VIEW and EDIT rights) by the creator.

    Problems:

    team work limited
    deleted users creates "zombie" Reports/Dashboards that cannot be administrated by anyone
    Suggestions:

    Users of the Administrators group should always have access to these settings - everywhere
    A third right could be added: VIEW/EDIT/ADMINISTRATE and distributed by creator/administrators among users
