Airfocus is an online roadmapping and prioritization tool for freelancers, teams, and organizations. Having worked as a freelancer for several years I decided to test it out.
The easy-to-use solution allows you to create and prioritize roadmaps, manage multiple products, and workflows and collaborate on strategy, all in a secure environment.
Better still, you can integrate it with other popular software including Trello, Asana, Jira, and Azure DevOps, allowing you and your team to track your progress with ease.
Want to know more about Airfocus and its features? Great! Below, I explore the roadmapping and prioritization tool in more detail.
Below I explore just some of the things that make Airfocus great.
With Airfocus, you can prioritize objectively using set criteria. The platform comes with a highly customizable scoring board, allowing you to prioritize opportunities with ease. With the advanced plan, you can even customize formulas for more accurate scorings.
Airfocus comes with a prioritization chart so you can visualize exactly what you need to do next. The platform’s algorithm scores your items based on the input and then visually maps them on an interactive prioritization matrix. From this, you can gain insights into which ideas and projects and high impact and then assess them against each other.
You and your team can work collectively to come up with fresh ideas in real-time. You can even have detailed discussions on what has the most significant impact on your projects. Airfocus comes with Priority Poker facilities to collectively prioritize through voting, allowing the entire team to have a say in the process.
Airfocus comes with two types of roadmapping: timeline and the popular Kanban. The Kanban board allows you to plan and share your current and future projects to keep everyone on the same page. As the project progresses, you can easily move items between the Kanban sections using the drag-and-drop interface.
With the timeline roadmap, you can create alignment around your goals, milestones, and items by visualizing your strategy on a Gantt chart. Just like you can with the Kanban board, you can easily move items around the chart using drag-and-drop.
With Airfocus, you can share your roadmaps in real-time with the whole team. With unlimited views and the option to export in a range of formats, you can discuss the ideas you are working on in detail and present them to different teams and stakeholders.
As well as sharing roadmaps, the platform allows you to share tasks, projects, and data with specific team members of the entire team, depending on your preference. You can control what to share across your team to keep confidential data private.
Thanks to Airfocus’s secure password storage and transmission, you can rest easy knowing that your confidential data is safe. All user passwords are hashed with PBKDF2-based robust hashing algorithm for added security. To take customer security to the next level, all communications between the client browser and Airfocus servers are secured with the industry-standard Transport Layer Security.
As you’d expect, Airfocus does have a few downfalls. Below, I explore these further.
Currently, Airfocus doesn’t have a public roadmap feature with the option to upvote and downvote features.
At the moment the platform doesn’t have a dependency feature. This would be ideal for the Gantt roadmap as it would provide a visual dependency link between the items.
With the basic plan coming in at $24 per month, Airfocus isn’t the cheapest roadmapping tool out there. However, it does come with some advanced features that other platforms do not, so you get what you pay for.
There are four Airfocus price plans to choose from: Starter, Team, Pro, and Enterprise. Below, I explore these in more detail.
Airfocus can be used as a one-stop-shop for all your prioritization and roadmapping needs. With plenty of integrations available, you can continue to use your favorite development tools in one handy platform.
Available integrations include:
