How can we improve TrustRadius?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Allow community members to add products within the system

    Currently, the product catalog and taxonomy can only be modified by TrustRadius administrators. As a community member, I would like the ability to add an additional product, suggest where it should sit within the taxonomy and to create a review. I would also like to be able to define what module and edition options exist - in addition to those I say I am using within my review.

    • Be Able To Enter Vendors

      Many vendors that I work with (and could offer best expertise / insights) are not on the list. It would be useful to be able to add those on the fly.

        Thanks for your feedback Chris. We are exploring the capability for participants to add products and even categories to the taxonomy longer term. In the interim, if you tell us which products you’d like to review, we can go ahead and add them to the database.

      • Software Usage Timeframe

        When the reviews specify "How long have you used/did you use the software for?" it would be really helpful to parse this out with two additional segments:

        1) What was the timeframe in which you used a software? (i.e. 2010-2012)

        2) Showing a timeline visual of the release updates compared to the timeframe a user used the software. That way, if they gave a negative review, theres a chance to be able to say that a certain software has updated the trouble areas. That, or a way for a company of larger size to be able to locate reviews based…

        • Send private message to reviewers

          I would like to be able to privately message reviewers to ask clarifying questions etc. I am ok with my identity being revealed to the reviewer, so they know who they are communicating with.

          • Review submission page bug

            On the review submission page (the final page), if you check the "I accept" box before adding a title, the "Submit Review" button is deactivated even after adding a title.

            I had to uncheck and recheck the box in order to submit. In short, the field empty check shouldn't be triggered by the checkbox change.

            • Ridiculous

              It's absolutely ridiculous to me that you require signin through LinkedIn. RIDICULOUS. I'm willing to sign up but absolutely not through LinkedIn or facebook or any other social site where you have access to connections. It's a shame because I am an IT professional who would be willing to write reviews on here of different products.

              Your loss

                • Incorrect Categories for some Products

                  I noticed some products in strange categories- like Leadlander in the Marketing category under Analytics. This should be improved.

                  • Length of software use

                    It would be great to be able to specify that you've used a software for less than a year when adding them to your profile.

                    • Integrated Marketing Platforms

                      As you review individual product silos, I would like to see you rate the products or companies that are attempting to integrate marketing enterprise tools together, like IBM, Oracle, SAP, OpenText, etc.. We all know that product platforms can be short lived due to product funding challenges and venture capital backing, so let's see an evaluation of how well the big enterprise companies are doing at integrating the technologies together and making them affordable for companies of all sizes to purchase. This includes Social Media, Content Management, Marketing Automation, etc... What are now being classified and CXM or CEM. More…

                      • FollowAnalytics does not compete with Sharethrough

                        Hi. I saw this page: https://www.trustradius.com/compare-products/followanalytics-vs-sharethrough

                        I head up marketing for FollowAnalytics. We don't compete with Sharethrough in any way. We are a mobile marketing automation platform. We help app owners automate push notification campaigns. We don't have anything to do with embedding ads or web content.

                            I see a few seo oriented crawler tools that others have reviewed such as deepcrawl, but there are many others. I would like to see a write-up on https://www.crawlmonster.com as well. Thank you.

                            • Fix Login and Account Creation Interface

                              I'm unable to create an account. There is not interface for creating a username or password. LinkedIn authentication is not working. I get a page explaining why it is needed but no link, button, pop-up or other interface is presented to authenticate with LinkedIn. I'm not having this issues with other site, only Trust Radius. Have tried chaning cookie filters to allow all cookies from trustradius.com but that is not working. Too frustrating to use compared to other review site. Make it unusable for me.

                                Paul – were you trying to access the TrustRadius site from a mobile device when you encountered this problem? We have some work to do to improve the mobile experience on the site and it would help to know whether this was part of the problem.

                                Maybe I am just not seeing this option, but it would be fantastic to allow people to reach out to the community through discussions for vendor suggestions. We are currently looking into UGC video submissions vendors and I can't seem to identify what category they would fall under in reviews. It would be wonderful to be able to explain what I am looking for to the Trust Radius community and gain insight from their experience.

                                  • I was comparing two products, and then....

                                    I was looking at your site without registering, and looking at which products are compared to what other products. Ok, so then I wanted to compare two products so I clicked on "Compare" - but at that stage your site wanted registration.

                                    I was keen to see the comparison, so I registered....and I expected once I'd completed registration that my current comparison request would be resumed.

                                    But instead I was presented with a quite different page which had lost the context of why I registered. I'd been returned as basically a new user.

                                    Quite annoying! Plus you're asking me for…

                                    • Request new reviews

                                      It would be great if users could request reviews, and consequently responding writers are rewarded with additional points.

                                      • Section for Product / Company News

                                        I think it would be beneficial to have a section under the Vendor or Product Page that contains links and headlines to latest news about the company and/or product.

                                        • Notify users when a new company is added to a category

                                          When you follow a category you should be able to get notified when a new company is added to a category. Now, you are only notified when a new review is created. Just a thought that I think would be beneficial to a lot of users.
