How to suggest Dataiku ideas

We have just launched a new Product Ideas board for Dataiku here on the Dataiku Community. The Product Ideas board is here to let you share and exchange your ideas on how to improve Dataiku.

Tips for sharing your idea

Here are some tips and guidelines to help get you started:

  • Start with a clear title
  • Describe what challenges it would help you solve
  • Tell us about what it might help you do
  • Include scenarios and use cases
  • Add appropriate label(s)
  • Keep it short and to the point
  • Avoid tech-speak and abbreviations

Idea Submission Guidelines

Make sure your ideas are for the right board. Ideas on this board are meant only for Dataiku. If you have feedback for improving the Dataiku Community, please share it on the Community Feedback board.

Search before posting. Do a quick search and make sure you are not submitting a duplicate. If the idea already exists, show your support by giving kudos to the original idea rather than watering down the potential impact across multiple submissions.

Review the ideas of others. Look at other ideas to see what your fellow community members are requesting, and feel free to discuss them in the comments section. While we consider the numbers of kudos an idea receives, we also consider the amount and quality of member feedback when making our decisions.

Add value. Vote for those items that you like and agree with by giving the idea a kudo. It's a way to recognize someone's effort and to signal to us how important the idea is to you.

Submit a new idea. Adding an idea is just like posting a message on a board. To create an idea, click on the “Suggest an Idea” button, located on the top right side of the idea board.

Include a clear title and description of your idea so others can decide how they would like to vote. Be as straightforward as possible, and tell us about your idea. Remember to include how it would benefit users and why you think we should consider it. By describing a use case, you’ll help us better understand what you want to be able to do; we may even be able to solve your problem more quickly another way. You can also preview your idea and check your spelling before you post the idea.

Don’t forget to include labels. Use labels to categorize your idea. You can choose one or multiple labels to use within your idea. This helps others discover and search for your idea. Not sure which labels to use? Have no fear! Choose the label(s) that you think best fit your idea, and the Dastaiku team will add additional labels as necessary as we review your idea. Here are the labels:

Do not be discouraged if your idea was not selected. Sometimes what seems to be a simple idea may not be so simple to build. Some ideas take longer than others, and some ideas will not be possible within the scope of what we want to accomplish in the next year or so.

Be respectful. Comply with the Community Guidelines

Once new ideas have been submitted to the Idea Exchange, they’ll go through a series of Statuses, which are used to indicate what is happening to the new idea:

1. If I propose an idea does it automatically get implemented into Dataiku?

No, there is no guarantee that at any point in the process that an idea will be implemented. It first needs to demonstrate support from the community in the form of voting. It also has to align with the future roadmap and vision of Dataiku. We reserve the right to not implement an idea at any point in the process.

2. What is the Product Ideas Board all about?

The Product Ideas Board is a new part of the Dataiku Community, where members can share their ideas related to Dataiku. Anyone in the community can see and vote on the ideas you post.

We encourage you to give kudos (vote) and comment (provide feedback) on submitted ideas.

3. How do I navigate the Ideas Board? 

Finding your way around the ideas board is pretty straightforward. Here are some of the things you will see to help you get around:

4. How to check if an idea exists already?

Use the search function filtering by the ideas board – or click here (direct link to search function)

5. What do the votes/kudos mean?

Just as you can give kudos in the community boards and blogs, you can vote for ideas you like on the Idea Board. You can also leave comments on ideas, but remember to be kind!

6. My idea has been accepted. How long will it take to be implemented?
Sadly, we will not be able to provide dates for the implementation of any accepted ideas within the community due to the number of factors involved. Please be patient and let us make sure it is completely ready before we make it available.

7. How will I know if an idea has been implemented?
You can track the status of your ideas as your ideas are sent to the people here at Dataiku who can make them happen and you will see the status of your idea is updated. We will be telling you if the idea is something we are working on now or would like to do in the future, or if it’s something that is not feasible for us at this time. To ensure you don’t miss any updates select “Subscribe” from the “Idea Options” menu when viewing your idea.

8. What ideas have been implemented so far?
You can check the "Accepted and Implemented ideas" topic which we will post once the first idea is implemented.

9. Can I edit or delete my ideas and/or comments?
Yes, you can edit both your ideas and comments after they are published.

10. Who can suggest ideas for the Product Ideas board?
Anyone with a Community account can suggest ideas on the Product Ideas board. Although we recommend that you become more familiar with the Dataiku Community before suggesting your first idea.

11. Who moderates/ manages the ideas board and in what frequency?
The community team is monitoring the board on a daily basis and product managers will come in on a regular basis to update statuses of the ideas and post their comments.

12. If Dataiku decides not to pursue my idea, will you tell me why?
We do not always provide the reasons for our decisions regarding ideas submitted for review but will strive to provide an explanation whenever possible. 

13. Why are some of the ideas older than the Product Ideas board itself?
Before launching the Product Ideas board we lead a private pilot program with our Dataiku Neurons. Some of their ideas from the pilot have been migrated to the Product Ideas board.
