How does the web app look and feel to use?

After registration, a step by step tour via pop up boxes takes users through the process of using FeatureSet. Users can easily gather input and share feedback across workspaces and teams. The customer community can vote on ideas that they like. Task management is easy with the assignment schedule and results can be tracked by comparing the schedule and budget with the project plan.

The integrated collaboration and social toolset is effective for working on teams. Developers, engineers, and marketing experts can all use the application to create the best possible product or service. Privacy controls are flexible for multiple teams/organizations. Customer feedback is used to create requirements that may be linked to tasks necessary to create the desired product.

Users can set up polls, manage feedback, plan tasks with priority levels and duration, blogs, and view an overview of all important data via the dashboard.

Overview of process: The process begins with gathering and ranking ideas. Ideas are tagged and classified and then discussed with customers. The customer community can then vote on ideas for the team to implement. Implementation includes creating requirements for each idea. The ideas are then broken into tasks and assigned (using the integrated scheduler). Results are tracked by schedule and budget within the project plan. During this process, social networking features connect the team. These features include privacy controls so that information may be shared with a portion of a team if needed.

Overall, the interface is a little crowded and could use more intuitive organization, but the collaboration scheme seems very effective.
