Product Roadmap: August 2020
At Pinpoint, we believe in radical transparency. The more transparent companies can be in how software is built, the more the software industry can collectively improve and innovate.
Part of being transparent is sharing our roadmap publicly. As you can imagine, and likely appreciate, priorities can and do change — which is just part of building a product. All of which, we will be open about the process as we go — good or bad.
So, how will we be doing this?
- Our roadmap lives in Notion and will be updated every month. This is where all the nitty-gritty details will be.
- We prioritize roadmap items into the following categories: Developing (shipped in 30 days), Exploring (building requirements) and Envisioning (pie in the sky).
- Every month we will post a high-level summary on the page you are on right now with insights into what may have changed and why we made the decisions we did at that time. You will be able to see all historical roadmap posts here.
- Our real-time progress can always be viewed on our Changelog.
And now, our Roadmap for August...
Since we released Pinpoint, we have been constantly seeking feedback from our users on how we can improve the application. The items in development all come from that feedback and will help us enhance the foundational capabilities of Pinpoint.
Below you will see our real-time status on these initiatives with the Issue/Epic Forecast right from our own instance of Pinpoint.
Our Agent is undergoing quite a transformation in order to simplify the installation of integrations. By improving how data is streamed to and from the app, users will have access to the data in real-time in Pinpoint.

The current Planning functionality auto-packs and auto-assigns issues but requires manually going back into the issue system to update. With the below enhancements, Planning will not only build your plan in Pinpoint but also automatically write that plan back to your issue system.

The new Daily view is an alternative to your typical stand-up ceremony and something we think everyone in the organization will benefit from by giving more context to the work in progress and help team members stay caught up and better prioritize their day.

We are currently working on defining requirements for these next set of initiatives. We would love to hear from you what you would like to see from these new features.
- Developer Profile: As we continue on our path toward becoming the developer's best friend we will be creating a developer profile where we bring in data from all of your various repos and projects to show your proficiency in languages, technologies, and more. To help you sharpen your skills, we will use machine learning to recommend podcasts, trainings and blogs right in your Pulse.
- Developer Dashboard: This is where you would start your day. The Dashboard will help you prioritize your day by highlight your outstanding or blocked issues, PR reviews you are waiting on or that you have been requested to review and more.
- Agent Integration SDK: This will open the ability to connect new apps and data sources to Pinpoint using our normalized data model.
We've got some big thinkers with big ideas here at Pinpoint. Here's where we are headed.
- Developer Ecosystem: This will bring the best developers in the world together in one place to share their knowledge and show off their skills.
- Graph API: We will expose and document the GraphQL API layer that we use every day to build our application so that others can use insights from Pinpoint in their applications or traditional business intelligence systems to enhance their work.
Give us feedback along the way.
Another principle we hold near and dear? Prioritizing feedback. Regardless if you are a user or not, we want to know what you think so we can make sure we are building a product that you would want to use.
There are a couple ways to share your feedback:
