As a member of the Vuo community, you can tell the Vuo developers which features you want most through community feature requests.

Feature requests

  1. You request a feature that you'd like to see in Vuo.
  2. Team Vuo reviews the feature request and usually opens it for voting.
    • If your feature request is similar to another, we might merge them (so that both are tracked on the same feature request page).
    • Occasionally, if a feature request is far from the direction that we'd like to take Vuo, we'll table it (choose not to implement it).
  3. You and other community members can vote for the feature.
  4. Team Vuo may choose to implement your feature request.
    • With each release, we implement some of the community feature requests.
    • We choose the features to implement based on how many votes they have, how much time they'll take to develop, and how much potential they have to expand the community.
    • You can browse the features chosen for an upcoming release and already released.

If you're on a tight schedule or need a niche feature, consider hiring us to develop it.

Votes

Each community member has a certain number of votes that they can use on feature requests.

You can "spend" all of your votes on your favorite feature request, or you can "spend" a few votes each on many different feature requests.

To vote for a feature request:

To see how many votes you have:

  • Go to the community feature requests and look at the "My available votes" box on the right side.
  • Or go to your user account page and click the "Votes" tab.

You can earn more votes by contributing to the Vuo community in various ways.

Complexity

Before we open a feature request for voting, we make a rough estimate of how much work it will take to implement, on a scale from 1 to 4:

Complexity Approximate cost range for commissioning
●○○○ — Up to a few days of work $   300 – $ 1,800 USD
●●○○ — A few weeks of work $ 1,800 – $ 9,000 USD
●●●○ — A few months of work $ 9,000 – $36,000 USD
●●●● — Many months of work $36,000 USD or more
