No idea ends up where it started.
GLIDR puts feedback, discovery and validation at the center of your product development process. GLIDR gives you tools to set up a robust product roadmap, test your Ideas through Research & Experiments, and connect validated Evidence.
Join Your First Project
As an Enterprise Team Member, you may be added to multiple Projects by the Account Owner, allowing you to work on multiple projects simultaneously.
You can find the list of Projects in your Organization in the menu on the left-hand side of the screen. Projects you have been added to will appear with a filled in square icon to the left of the Project name.
Familiarize Yourself With The Canvas
GLIDR offers a Business Canvas and Product Canvas for each Project, allowing you to distinguish the ideas that are directly related to your market vs. related to your product.
Different teams work in different ways. That's why we've made GLIDR customizable to your needs.
You can categorize your Ideas by Roadmap, Status and Theme. When you start your Project, you'll find that the Roadmap and Status categories are already filled out with suggested titles, but your Account Owner or Project Admin can change them to fit your needs.
Start Adding Your Ideas
It's easy to start filling out your canvas. Navigate to any of the + buttons to begin adding Ideas.
Keep it brief! There's a 100 character limit, but you can click on your Idea to add more detail and expand on your thoughts.
Once you've started adding and validating or invalidating your Ideas, you may decide to prioritize them according to your needs, or progress them as they move through the Product Roadmap. This can be done by dragging and dropping the individual cards, which can also be done in List View.
Add Your Evidence
Once you've started adding Ideas, it's likely you'll be gathering evidence that will ultimately help you validate or invalidate your Ideas. This can be in the form of customer discovery interviews, A/B tests, smoke tests or one of various other tests.
By navigating to the Evidence section of your Team, you can begin adding Evidence using the + button. The Evidence tab is also where you will see other Ideas that have already been added by you or your teammates.
In the same way as adding an Idea, the Summary section gives you space to enter a customer discovery interview transcript, results from a landing page test, and any other relevant information relevant to your evidence.
Once you've added your Evidence, you can connect it to your Ideas, or vice-versa. Clicking on the Connections tab will show you any existing connections you've made, and you can also add or edit connections to your Ideas.
If you're looking at your Roadmap in List View, it's easy to connect Ideas by selecting the Connect Ideas icon and choosing the Ideas you would like to link to the current selected Idea.
Run Discovery Tasks
You can design Research (researching without a specific outcome in mind to generate new Ideas) or an Experiment (testing a specific Idea to get a precise yes or no result).
