There are a variety of ways to find out about product development at Figshare from past releases to future plans. This article will reference all the places to find Figshare for Institutions product development information. If you have any questions about product development, contact our product director, Chris Blumzon, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our product development roadmap documents which features are currently being assessed for development.
This is a subset of the main Figshare roadmap of features and improvements that will be of interest to our preprint user community.
In planning new features, we request comments and feedback from our community of users. Documents where we are still accepting feedback are linked below.
If you are interested in shaping the future of Figshare by providing feedback on new features and ideas, we'd love to hear from you! You can sign up to be approached about any area or for specific items only. You are under no obligation to accept any request for feedback. Requests may take the form of meetings, emails, prototypes etc. We will not contact you for any other reason other than Figshare user testing and you can opt out at any time by messaging email@example.com.
If you have feedback on improving existing features or developing new ones, you can raise a feature request. Feature requests can be commented on and up-voted by other members of the community and are commented on directly by our product director.
Our product director documents each new release in the form of release notes. These notes cover, in detail, any new features and functionality in the release and what's expected to be available in the next release.
Each production release is demoed by our product director so administrators can see firsthand the new features and functionality in the release.
Our product director will write further about product development as necessary in the form of a blog post. Check out some of our blog posts from the last year below.
