Day 14 - Added hooks for synthesis events and excel export

life UserBit entrepreneurship

Project activity is an important feature for teams so members can be aware of what is happening within a project.

I also started implementing an export to excel feature for answers. A matrix of questions and responses from the end users. Hope to have something in place by tomorrow. This is the last core functionality piece I’ll work on before getting into the meta-product area for alpha release.

What are meta-product aspects

For the sake of categorizing tasks required to build a product, I like to divide it into two broad spectrums.

  • Core Product - These are features that need to be implemented as part of the product. These almost always need UX and development effort.

  • Meta Product - These are necessary tasks that need to be done around the core product. Example - terms and services, social presence, press kit etc.

UserBit is getting ready for Alpha testing. Hopefully I can get it in the hands of some real users soon.
