Properties inheritance

Copy Link

Properties are now automatically inherited when you have nested features.

Imagine that you have the following structure: Problem > Feature > Insight.

From now on, when you'll update the property of any problem, all the features that are nested within that problem (as well as their corresponding insights) will then inherit from the same update.

Better product summary formatting

Copy Link

The product summary now writes direct quotes from the content rather than rephrasing them.

As this summary is used by the feedback autopilot, you’ll also find better customer quotes in your feedback.

AI - Better categorization

Copy Link

We further improved AI categorization. From now on, when looking for existing features to match with your customer quotes, Cycle's AI will take into account the quotes already linked to your existing features in the matching process.

That way, if a quote doesn't mention any word from a feature's title but does mention words that match other quotes already linked to the feature, then the similarity score will be high as it should be.

The more you extract and categorize quotes, the better the AI becomes. It's a virtuous... cycle!

Gong integration

Copy Link

Automatically fetch Gong sales call transcripts, and process them all on autopilot.

The goal is to extract « voice of sales » insights:

-What are the top feature requests, sorted by $ revenue impact?
-What are the most common problems highlighted by top customers?
-What are the best upsell opportunities?
-What deals are blocked due to a missing feature?

Revenue teams love it as it helps them be analytical about their requests to the product teams: now they can put dollar values on feature requests! 💰

There are 3 ways of using our Gong integration:

1. Automatically fetch new calls or spotlights
2. Manually fetch specific calls or spotlights
3. Paste a call or spotlight link in our Drop Island

You’ll have the embedded video as well as the title, participants, comments, and Gong transcript in a new piece of feedback in Cycle.

AI Feature creation customization

Our recommendation is to wait until your AI is correctly fine-tuned before enabling it. In this way, you'll still see suggestions for new features in your AI-suggested insights but the AI will never create new ones without your consent.

Hubspot & Intercom on autopilot 🏎

You can now put all our native integrations on autopilot.

New way to capture feedback from Intercom 🏷

If you’re using Intercom, you’re used to their tagging system. So what’s more natural than creating Cycle feedback from just a Cycle tag?

Doing this will fetch the message in your Cycle inbox, ready for processing. You’ll also have a link to reopen this ticket if you want to get more context.

Prefer to fetch the whole conversation? You can still use our widget. In this way you can also tag some feedback properties.

Autopilot loader ✨

Drop zone mini & Chrome integration V2 🗳️

Copy Link

What's faster than a drag & drop?

By now, you know that we're obsessed about building the fastest feedback capture ever created. "How could this be even more frictionless" is a question we ask ourselves every day. 

We've found that the most natural way for you to capture feedback is to take a screenshot and drop it somewhere – no thinking, no hassle, just drop it. 

We're excited to introduce Cycle's new feedback island. From anywhere in the app, just drag & drop a file or a screenshot and watch the island do its magic. 🍿

There's more… Cycle generates optical character recognition for your images… as well as transcripts for your audio and video files… automatically 🤯

Yes! The fastest feedback capture ever created 🚲⚡

New Google Chrome extension 👩💻

Many small fixes have been made to improve the overall experience of your favorite extension:

- Upload any file with a simple drag & drop (oops, we did it again 😅)
- Get titles automatically completed 
- Add multi-select properties
- Cleaner dropdown for your customers 

In order to get those updates, please uninstall/reinstall this integration through this link.

🏎 In-app feedback autopilot

Along with Slack, Call recordings, and Zapier, you can now set up your autopilot for feedback created in-app.

Our favorite use case? Drag & drop a file into the feedback island, automatically fetch the text with OCR, make sure feedback autopilot is toggled on, hit "Create feedback," and watch new insights emerge by themselves.✨

Customer voice dashboard V2 & Drop zone 🗳️

Copy Link

Slice and dice product feedback with filters on MRR, customer lifecycle, and time frames (like the last 7 or 30 days). It helps you understand whether you have market opportunities, but also keep track of company requests & identify the team members that contribute the most to feedback.

Here's a list of the new dashboard features:

- New date filtering (last 7 days, last 30 days, etc.)
- New charts: insight evolution over time, stats on who captured most product feedback
- Click on a feature to open it
- For each chart, choose between counting insights or the number of distinct companies.

Can't wait to see what customer voice insights you'll be extracting 💪

🗳️ Feedback drop zone

We’ve made it so simple to add new feedback to Cycle that even your cat could do it. 🙀

Drop any image, audio, video, or PDF in the dropzone and let the magic happen as the new pieces of feedback appear in your inbox 🤯 Oh, and did I mention that Cycle automatically extracts the transcript for you? You don't have to think. Just drop those files! ✌

Got a new product idea or just had a cool convo with a customer you'd want to summarize? Just record yourself and get the transcript... automatically!

⚙️ New view logic

Our left sidebar has received a significant makeover to give you easier access to your views.

Additionally, we've added thousands of new icons.

💬 Product summary

You can now automate the creation of a product summary for your all incoming feedback –  it basically lists the key feedback points at the top of the feedback docs.

This is very useful for long feedback, such as support talks or sales call transcripts, when you only want to see the product-related parts.

Feedback on autopilot & Linear automations ⚡️

Copy Link

After weeks of working on this one, we're happy to announce you can now put your feedback on autopilot!

When you have dozens of product feedback submissions every day, it's just not possible to read them all, map them to your roadmap, update your PRDs, and close the loop with each stakeholder. You need an assistant.

Well, meet your new feedback pal, powered by AI.

You can activate 4 automations, customizable source by source in your AI settings: 1/ auto write a feedback summary, 2/ auto find insights, 3/ auto link to roadmaps, 4/ auto mark processed.

AI can save you hours every week, but we also know AI is not perfect. That's why we embraced the "AI-generated, user-verified" philosophy. In short, trust the feedback autopilot, but verify.

You have 3 possible insight states:

- User-generated (like before)

- AI-generated, user not (yet) verified

- AI-generated, user-verified

Tip: For all existing views, make sure to display the new property “AI tag”.

Give the feedback autopilot a try for your Slack source and tell us what you think!

⚡️ Linear automations

Bring your Cycle x Linear setup even closer.

Did a piece of feedback reveal a bug or a new feature idea? Create the bug in Cycle, and automate the issue creation in Linear.

To set it up, go to your Settings > Integrations > Linear and click on Automations. For each Cycle doc type, you can decide whether you’ll automatically create a project or an issue.

⬇️ Linear import flow

Go to your Settings > Integrations > Linear and hit Import. Define which doc types you want those projects/issues to be mapped to, then select the ones you want to import.

There are two major use cases:

1. At each release, you want to use Cycle’s built-in feature to write product marketing stuff and centralize everything to have a history. So at each release you want to import Linear issues/projects that have just been shipped.

2. You’re starting using Cycle and want to import your existing product backlog to prioritize it and map user feedback to it in Cycle.

👌 Linear - Push Cycle's description

Write your spec in Cycle, with your customer context on the right. Then when you're good to go, just send the content to Linear with one click.

🗂️ Find insights results split

Results of AI "Find insights" are now split by doc type at the top of each piece of feedback.

AI Customization ⚙️

Copy Link

You can now fine-tune your AI with specific context, including your company name and product description to get better results, unique for your situation.

Make sure to update your product description in your Settings > General.

🎙️ Record calls on the spot

Realized mid-call that it's worth recording? No problem! You can now invite Cycle’s recording bot to join in at any point during the call.

👂 Customer-Only AI Insights in Calls

In response to your feedback, we've updated how we search for insight in call transcripts to focus solely on external voices in call transcripts.

This means when you're reviewing user research or sales calls, the AI will only consider your customers' responses, not your own. This change ensures you get a clear, unfiltered view of customer opinions and needs.

✅ Feedback content as quote

Sometimes, the feedback content is clear and explicit ; in this case all you want is to capture it all as a quote.

Within any piece of feedback, simply click on "Add Insights" and select "Use feedback content as quote" to use the full content in your insights.

Cycle AI 🤖

Copy Link

Mapping the insights you create to the right feature/bug can be daunting when you have lots of possibilities. First you don’t want to create duplicate. Second, it takes time.

So from now you’ll get an AI suggestion to help you map the insights! The feature doesn’t exist yet? The AI will suggest a name for this new feature that you can validate in 1 click.

Note that you can fine-tune the AI queries by editing your doc types and their descriptions. 👀

But the future is even more exciting! 🔥

You’ll be able to:

- Set up feedback autopilot mode to automatically process all of your incoming feedback
- Auto-populate properties like sentiment, competitor, etc

🏷 Link Linear issues to feedback

Some of you told us you wanted to accelerate linking a piece of feedback to a known Linear issue/project.

👉 Our answer is: just paste the Linear URL into the Cycle feedback doc and we’ll do the rest.

Watch this in action in this video. 🎬

🎥 Call recording customization

Here is the 2nd part of the Call recording add-on: define which meeting you want to record and see what’s planned from Cycle.

Call recording 🎥

Ever wondered how to multiply your product feedback tenfold? Imagine accessing every bit of feedback your users have shared with Sales & Success teams, automatically. 😱

Our call recording bot aims to make this a reality.

Define the meeting you want to record, and you'll see an additional participant taking notes. ✍️

Once installed, for every Google Meet, Zoom, & Microsoft Teams call, you'll receive a Cycle feedback containing:

  • Call summary
  • Video
  • Transcript

Of course, you can customize which meetings you wanna record.

We’re already working on the next steps. 👀

💡 Recommended insights

You’ve just started working on a new product initiative. You know you got feedback on it but don’t remember from who it was and what people said about it.

Does this resonate?

From now on, you’ll get insights recommendations from any feature or bug. Integrate this context to shape better products.🔥

Another cool use case is when you've just shipped the feature and want to close as many loops as possible. Link more insights and close the loop directly to maximize engagement 💪.

🏋️ Linear integration on steroids

1. View all issues from a Linear project directly in Cycle.

2. Automatically link Linear projects/issues mentioned in Cycle document content.

3. When you create a Linear project/issue from Cycle we’ll take the same name as default title

Check out the magic in action here! 😍

🔗 To get started, go to your feature, click on “Link” and choose a Linear project or issue. The issue/project doesn't exist yet? Create it right from here!

💬 From the editor, you can mention Linear projects/issues and they'll be automatically linked to the current feature.

You can also link Linear issues from anywhere in Cycle, including your feedback docs 👀

Customer voice dashboards & API 📊

Copy Link

We're super excited to announce the beta of another major new feature - a dynamic customer voice report that helps you answer your biggest product questions such as:

What are the most requested features?
What are the most concerned product areas?
Which customers give the most feedback?
What's the current status of all this feedback?

Customer voice dashboards let you slice and dice this information with filters on customer segments, feedback importance, and time frames (like the last 7 or 30 days).

It’s a big milestone in understanding and actioning customer feedback.

It’s currently in beta and we’ll open it only to 20 companies at the moment as it requires custom implementation work. If you’re interested in us analyzing your data and coming back to you with answers to the above questions, reply to this email! It will be on a first-in-first-served basis.

We’re eager to get your feedback: are we missing out on some big questions?

💻 API settings

Extend the power of Cycle with webhooks and custom workflows that integrate with any app. You can also build your own apps on top of Cycle.

Key capabilities include generating your personal API keys and managing your OAuth applications with ease.

Here are some cool use cases our customers have come up with:

👉 Craft in-app forms that funnel directly into Cycle feedback
👉 Set up notifications for document status updates
👉 Send Slack messages to summarize what's been shipped in each release
👉 Sync customers from tools not yet integrated with Cycle

This works:

✅ When you create a new insight

✅ Inside any doc

✅ From a view

👩🏻 Optional customer sync

Have a ... [cough cough] .. not cleaned customer database, but still you’d like to use our Slack, Intercom & Hubspot inte?

You can now decide to sync or unsync your customers from those apps.

When you sync them, we’ll import them all, no matter whether they have feedback in Cycle. If you unsync them, we’ll keep only the ones with some feedback. In both cases, you'll have 100% of customers that gave feedback.

Process your feedback with AI 🦾

Copy Link

Many of you told us that insights are critical for writing PRDs with empathy & communicate solid release notes. Yet it takes time to process your feedback inbox, and time is scarce.

We’re glad to introduce a feature that will save you hours of manual processing. Our new AI will find insights for you so that you can focus your energy and time on stuff where you truly add value.

To get started, go into your inbox and open a (long) feedback. Go to the insight panel on the right. Click on "Find Insights" and the AI will start working. ✨

You'll be presented with a list of quotes that you can select/unselect. ✅

Want to adapt the wording? Do it. 📝

From there you can link each insight to the right feature – existing or new.

Looks all good? Perfect, then you can just confirm and watch insights magically appear on the right.👌

It's just a first step towards a much bigger vision. That's why we call it a beta feature. We can't wait to hear your feedback and co-create the next iterations with y'all! 🚀

Leverage your Cycle data 💪

📊 Data accessibility in exports and API calls

Doc content in HTML and custom properties are now available in your CSV exports and they can be used in API calls. The impact?

👉 Many of you are already using our API to integrate Cycle with various tools and create custom workflows. Now, you can also use doc content as part of these workflows.

👉 We've received numerous requests for reports on who contributes the most with product feedback. This is available in the export.

👉 Before we ship in-app reporting features, you can use your export data and analyze it with tools of your choice. Want to know who contributes the most with product feedback? Or want to sort features by number of insights? It's all possible with exports.

💡 Faster insight creation

Sometimes you just want to create an insight and categorize it later. To help with this workflow, you can now quickly create an insight without having to link it to a feature. Just select "None" or hit "Enter" right after clicking on "Create insight". You'll be able to link it later as you see fit.

Think release notes and (soon) public change log. 👀

That's it! These four sections are the essence of your feedback lifecycle.

And it's a virtuous… cycle because your releases lead to new feedback, which fuel new insights, etc.

🏠 New Home & side nav

The four Cycle fundamentals are now reflected in your Home page as well as your side nav.

In the new Home, you'll find links to all sections, your sources, and customers with new feedback.

We hope you'll appreciate all the little big details. 🤗

🌠 New Insight section & images capture with Slack

Copy Link

🗄️ New Insights section

A new default section was added on the left side panel to centralize your Insights. Your previous insights views have been migrated there.

This gives much more importance to customer quotes and will help your colleagues’ onboarding.

NB: You can still create custom views below those sections.

🌠 Cycle bot now captures images & files in Slack

Most of product feedback messages have images, and those are important for the context, right?

So from now on, the images are fetched into Cycle!

On top of this, when you create an insight from a part that contains an image, the image becomes the cover of the insight!

📣 Release feature improvements

We shipped some improvements to the release feature. You can now:

👉 Link existing features to your releases, right from the Releases section.

👉 Copy the text of your release in one click (look for the copy button at the top of your release note).

👉 See the list of people that will be informed when you close the loop.

📝 Tables in editor

You asked. We delivered. Tables are now live in Cycle. Can’t wait to see how you’ll use them!

📣 Release property & editor improvements

Copy Link

📣 Release property

You already have your customer feedback and product roadmaps in Cycle and it's amazing.

But what if you could turn your product roadmaps into release notes? And what if you could automatically send these release notes to all relevant people each time you ship a new release?

Well... now you can!

1. Create a new release – just pick a date and a release title

2. Add release notes to your release – either start from scratch or link existing features in your roadmap

3. Write your release notes, feature by feature, in the context of your customer quotes – with empathy

4. Mark your release notes as ready when they're properly documented

5. When all features within a release are completed, publish the release & close the loop with everyone in one click.


The notification will be sent to the relevant assignees & customers via Slack and / or email according to the user's preferences. 🔥 Soon this same action will also update the public change log.

📝 New editor features

Table of content gives you a clearer view of your docs. You can also jump between sections.

Toggle lists will be a game changer for long documents, whether it's for user research or PRDs.

🔨 Slack install flow

Slack automations ⚡️

Copy Link

⚡️ Slack channel automation

Just pick a channel and that’s it: from then onwards all new messages in that channel will be sent to Cycle as feedback, automatically.

To update your automated channels, go to your Slack integration settings.

👉 Workspace settings → Integrations → Slack → Configure.

🚲 Slack reacji

Remember that you can create feedback with one simple reacji? Well, now you can customize it!

Head to your settings and choose your favorite emoji.

🤖 Slackbot public notifications settings

Tailor your notification preferences to keep stakeholders in the loop with what matters most.

Don’t want Cycle Slackbot to pop out for feedback that won't require action for a while? Or perhaps you only want updates on things that have been shipped? We’ve got you covered!

Public notifications are based on four status categories: Not Started, Started, Completed, and Canceled. Go to your Workspace settings → Workflow to get your status categorization.

API & Webhooks available in beta 💻

Copy Link

We're inviting beta testers to try out our API and Webhook!

We're incredibly bullish about it! It opens up a world of thousands of use cases limited only by … well … your imagination.

Here are some cool initial use cases to get you inspired:

👉 Create an in-app form that generates Cycle feedback

👉 Receive notifications when a document changes status

👉 Sync customers from tools Cycle has not integrated yet

👉 Send Slack messages to internally announce what has been shipped during each product release

📝 Displayed status in insight creation flow

Now, when creating an insight, you can easily see the status of the features you want to link it to.

Prevent linking insights to canceled or shipped items. 😇

🔗 New Slack notifications

When you create some feedback from Slack and link it directly to a feature, the public notification now includes the title and URL of the selected feature

Don’t worry, only people invited to your workspace can open this link.

NB: When you link directly a message to an initiative in Slack, the feedback created is automatically marked as processed.

Shine bright like a customer quote 💎

Close that feedback loop! 💪

Copy Link

🔔 Status notifications

How often do you close the loop with stakeholders when you start working on something they gave you feedback on?

If the answer is "gloups", don't worry you're like most product folks. 😅 And this will now change!

With status notifications, you are now able to trigger product updates to all relevant people with a simple drag & drop from one status to another.

Here is a full workflow starting with a CSM providing feedback on Slack.

Think about it:

👉 How much time would you save per quarter?

👉 How many deals could sales folks reopen with real-time status on projects?

👉 How many churns would CSM prevent by closing the loop on bugs and requests?

You got it, we are quite excited about this new feature!

Cherry on the cake: in their settings, stakeholders will be able to customize how they would like to be notified (Cycle, Slack, Email).
