Just like you, we enjoy using the PPP – Plans, Progress & Problems – process internally in Weekdone team. Many of you have asked us, what's in the product development roadmap for Weekdone? What features can you expect? What are the priorities, what's done and are some of the issues problematic?

We are big believers in open communications and keeping as few secrets as possible from our customers. A lot of what we do is based on active back and forth discussions with our current or future users (feel free to e-mail us with suggestions and questions at any time). So what's a better way to share our product development plans here in public, using the good old PPP format.

Since there's a lot on our plate, we've broken the Plans down by 3 priorities. High priority plans are under development. Medium ones are most probably going into development next. Low are ideas on which no specific decision has made yet. Items in medium and low are not ordered in any way.

Let us know in comments, what do you consider important next? Something missing?
