Invite new team members directly from the workspace

You can now invite new team members directly from the workspace or from the permissions dialog, which means that the invitee can see the workspace when they log in for the first time.

Video: The Weighted Scoring Decision Matrix

When it comes to making important product decisions, there are many criteria to consider which are of varying levels of importance. The weighted scoring matrix comes in handy. By extensively evaluating your choices and quantifying the process, you’ll be able to greatly reduce or remove emotion and guesswork from the decision process. Check out our newest video from Heleana in which she explains how the matrix works.

Video: The RICE Prioritization Framework

One of our favorite prioritization frameworks is the RICE (Reach, Impact, Confidence, Effort) scoring framework. The RICE scoring model was introduced by Intercom a few years ago and has been widely adopted and used by product managers and product owners to prioritize feature releases and projects. In this video, Heleana provides an overview and some examples of how to use the RICE scoring framework.
