The roadmap planning session is up on YouTube.
On the call, we discussed goals for the application after launch and went over potential objectives for the near future, which I extracted from this Discuss thread.
We spent some time discussing our personal drivers and blockers to using Status. This surfaced several more potential objectives, which we added to the list.
We then dot voted, as a group, on which objectives should receive the most focus after launch. Each core contributor was given 3 votes to allocate. 1 point = 1 vote from a contributor.
We’re now inviting other SNT holders and community members to give us their feedback on the objectives ranked by contributors on the call.
Give us a or to let us know how you feel about this order of priorities for v1.
1 - Make chat more enjoyable to use. This is about implementing standard chat features, such as image sending, notifications, or @ mentions. (11 points)
2 - Fix significant blockers to use. This requires us to improve on issues like network consumption, battery drainage, etc., as well aggravating UI issues. (5 points)
2 - Polish the UI. This is about improving UI responsiveness, as well as polishing specific features, e.g. seedphrase recovery. (5 points)
3 - Enable smoother transactions. This is about improving the Tx flow to be more in line with Andrei’s post, and could also apply to Tx history improvements. (4 points)
4 - Offer more robust account management. Completing multiaccount features such as ability to import from seed phrase. (3 points)
5 - Make it easier to build community in Status. Account gifting, easier profile sharing, etc. (3 points)
6 - Enhance user privacy through advanced controls. Ability to switch DApps per browser tab, etc. (2 points)
7 - Better desktop support. (2 points)
8 - Welcome new users warmly with smooth onboarding. (1 point)
9 - Build SNT utility. (1 point—worth mentioning that features laddering up to the above objectives can do this)
10 - Bring in additional functionality via extensions. (1 point)
11 - Make uniquness of Status understood. (0 points)
12 - Faster, more iterative release process. (0 points)
Given our team’s bandwidth, we will focus in on the top 3 objectives for now: make chat enjoyable to use, reduce significant blockers to use, and polish UI.
We’ll follow up with in-depth planning sessions to discuss the features & fixes that will drive these objectives in the next few weeks.
