What about "Not in Short term Glide roadmap"?

Hi, is the following a shared matter

It happens that we build an app requiring advanced workarounds since not native (ex. Public-Private chat, Multi select of a single choice component list… ), and
the week after we are as much happy than frustrated*: Glide makes it a native component in a clic.
(* time spent + data structure + screen customizing).

There are several apps that I don’t start due to this.
But, if I’d knew that my expected features will Not be delivered in the next 2-3 months, I would probably go for the workaround approach.

→ Glide cannot share its roadmap, but would there have a not too-time consuming approach (for Glide Team) to answer to “Feature X is NOT in next 2 months roadmap” @JackVaughan ?

Thanks

I’ve made a similar request on a private topic, where I was asking :

Another user has proposed to introduce #tags so that requests can be given a sort of status (f.e : ready, in discussion, shipped, expect soon…) which I think is also a good idea !

Any update on that @JackVaughan

We will continue to improve how we keep the community up to date with the product. As we’ve said before, we are a small team and don’t have the capacity to do this right now.

You’re always welcome to ask us about the likelihood of a certain feature in the short-term.

Tags – yes, for sure. This is something that I’d love, and we will get round to it. Sorry it’s taken a while.

Thank you @JackVaughan, there are two features that I hesitate to build with a workaround un case Glide deploys it in the month to come
. Group & Private chat
. Multi select.

we are not working on these right now so not releasing in the short term

And let me ask it in the other way, what are you working on right now ? And what’s your next priority feature and which one is not ?

(If you don’t mind to answer obv :slight_smile: )

I expect we will be more transparent in the future about our roadmap, but right now we move & pivot quite quickly. We only release what we’re working on to the community when we are pretty certain we are going to ship it. Because we’re experimenting & testing – things sometimes go back to the lab for a bit and sometimes they are put off indefinitely. We never want to disappoint the community or not deliver on our promises.

The best place to know about these things is #insiders and staging.glideapps.com. If it’s there, we want you to know about it.
