Release notes

New stuff every week, freshly cooked by the Cycle team
Get started

Shine bright like a customer quote 💎

🗣️ New insights logic

Insights are key to connect the dots between feedback and product delivery workflows. That’s why we made them better.

Among others, insight cards are more readable with clear customer quotes, insight creation flow is faster, it’s easier to switch between feedback and initiatives by clicking on insights that connect them, and you can now easily edit any insight’s parent, property, quote or cover picture.

Check out this Arcade – it shows a full insight workflow.

📊 Exports

You can now export Cycle data from any view – just click on “Export in CSV” and get the file by email.

Want to get a weekly export of your favorite view? That’s possible with our API in beta! Let us know if you’re interested in trying it out.

It's only a first step towards more in-app analytics! 📈

🌈 App redesign

💻 Performance boost

We've improved overall performance, especially the load time when you open or switch views as well as the initial load whenever you open or refresh the app – let us know if you can feel it! ⚡️

Note that you may see a few changes in doc positions within groups as a consequence because we simplified the doc order logic, but be reassured, no data was lost or affected.

Close that feedback loop! 💪

🔔 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).
