Product Roadmap: November 2020

At Pinpoint, we believe in radical transparency. Part of being transparent is sharing our roadmap publicly and reflecting candidly on how we did against that roadmap each month — good or bad. You can read more about our progress from last month here.

A few reminders:

And now, our Roadmap for November...


November's big focus will be on application performance, turbo-powered collaboration, and a little bit of housekeeping against our backlog.

Below you will see our real-time status on these initiatives with the Issue/Epic Forecast from our instance of Pinpoint.

Notebook Evolution 


The Notebook is the foundation of the Daily as well as My Notebook. The Notebook will be an all-inclusive editor approach which will provide us the ability to have smart linking and in-line elements. You will be able to quickly add people, entities ( e.g. issues and PRs ) along with 3rd party blocks right into your personal notebook or a team's Daily.

App Speed Improvements


The name says it all, we want speed! Whether you are clicking on your standup or opening an issue detail, changing a priority or creating a new ticket, you want it to happen now! do we! The focus here will be to make all of these things as real-time as possible to keep you productive.

Backlog Cleaner


We have been working on a backlog clean-up tool in the background to help keep your issue system organized and easier to work with by identifying stale and duplicate issues automatically and flagging them for you.

We are currently working on defining requirements for these next set of initiatives. We would love to hear from you about what you would like to see from these new features. 

  • Reimagining Daily Stand-ups: As The Daily and Notebooks evolve and expand our collaboration capability, we are investigating the best way to incorporate traditional stand-up artifacts, like your scrum board, into the Daily. We'll continue on this mission to eliminate noise and promote smart collaboration!
  • Pull Request Impact: Pull Requests can have a rippling effect due to dependencies in other code repositories. This can often be overlooked. We are exploring how Pinpoint can help by identifying code repositories that are likely to be impacted by a specific Pull Request depending on whether it is a version bump, a code change, or maybe even a bug fix.


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.
  • Pinpoint Desktop App: As our customers and our teams continue to spend more and more time in Pinpoint, we have started to envision a native desktop application. A desktop application will allow for richer interactions, notifications, and integrations with the desktop operating system.

Give us feedback along the way.

Another principle we hold near and dear? Prioritizing feedback. Regardless of whether you are a user or not, we want to know what you think to make sure we are building a product you would like to use.
