Welcome to Zeda.io, this document will walk you through the process of setting up your workspace on Zeda.io and the main terminologies used throughout the platform.

- What is a Zeda.io hierarchy?
Zeda.io allows you to make product management simpler and smarter by centralizing all your data, enabling you to collect, analyse, plan & execute all in one place. The Zeda.io dashboard comprises of following components -
Workspace > Collect Feedback > Convert Feedback to Features > Plan the Goals > Prepare the Roadmap > Product development > Release Notes > Analytics
Along with the above components, there is integration support which communicates with multiple tools for simpler collaboration.
What is a Zeda.io hierarchy?
Product Management is so fragmented and inefficient that product teams juggle between too many tools to define and manage their product. Also, there is no single tool that can integrate with the entire company stack for collaboration between different departments. That’s where Zeda.io steps in.!!
Zeda.io is a platform that helps you to build products that your customers love!1. Collect
The Zeda.io hierarchy starts with “Collecting your feedback” via multiple sources like In-app Widget, Slack, Dashboard, Forms & Customer portal or migrating the existing via “Import function".
a. Customer Portal: Bringing your customers on board to share and engage with feedback and feature requests is not hard work at all.
b. In-app Widget: Your customers can easily share feedback with your product team directly from your web app with annotated screenshots, and screen records.
c. Integrations: Enable your teammates to share ideas & requests with you directly from their tools like Slack, Zendesk, HubSpot, and many more.
Once the Feedback is collected, the PMs can view all the collected feedback in a dedicated feedback dashboard and then go ahead to create features by converting the submitted feedback and identifying feedback trends.
a. Feedback Dashboard: View all the incoming feedback, feature requests, ideas, and bugs from a single feedback dashboard.
b. Convert Feedback to Features: Easily convert feedback into a well-defined request for your engineering and design team to pick up. You can pass this to Jira or work it on Zeda.io.
Define measurable goals, align your team to the goals and track regular progress. You can also get company-wide visibility by creating organization-level roadmaps from the roadmap module by selecting all or combinations of multiple products and sharing them with all the stakeholders.
The PMs can go ahead and groom the submitted feedback by adding the “Prioritization” & linking the request with the Products and further to the features created inside the product.
a. Roadmaps: Build and share roadmaps at the company, team, product, and customer levels, which are always up-to-date, give clear visibility and can be customized as per need.
b. Goals: Why do math in the air when you can easily do proper Goal-based planning and optimize product outcomes for your customers?
c. Prioritization: Don’t just jump into action. Decide what to do and what not to with built-in prioritization frameworks such as RICE, Value effort or make your own.
Centralize your product data and stakeholder interaction all in one place. Zeda.io supports integration with engineering tools like JIRA, design tools and analytics tools to help you streamline collaboration, planning and tracking.
a. Product Space: Easily share product context with anyone by organizing everything from concepts to documentation, designs, and analytics in a single place and collaborating on execution with design, engineering & other functions with easy-to-manage kanban boards.
b. Documentation: Easily create PRDs, personas, competitive analysis docs and more with the in-built template library. Easily create and manage product knowledge base with Zeda.io documentation.
c. Announce Updates: Notify your teammates & customers about the latest product updates directly on the Zeda.io In-app widget, Customer portal or through emails, Slack integration, and more.
