What (currently unavailable) feature would you like to see soonest?
The Zimbra community is growing at an astonishing rate. This is thanks to the many contributors and forum posters.
As a community, we have the chance to work together to help Zimbra Open Source grow and morph into the type of e-mail server/service that we want. . .not simply what some company wants.
So the question is, "What (currently unavailable) feature would you like to see soonest?"
We have several people working in the development forum who have some great ideas.
If the idea isn't posted, feel free to post it here, and I'll or a forum mod, will edit the poll.
Thanks, and enjoy!
Need 100% focused on features for Enterprise/EDU
Hey All --
When talking about "near term features" for Zimbra platform, I would recommend prioritizing based on competitive selling vs Exchange and Scalix (ie. M$ platform you want to displace, and competitor in Linux collab space).
While it's important that Zimbra maintain new innovative features/functionality to provide uniqueness in competitive market, it's important that the "core underlying Zimbra platform" needs to have specific features to provide "real-world" reason to WIN vs other similar products.
Summary: don't spend 100% on evangelizing new "wiz bang" features. "Win bang" and evangelizing don't WIN you new business -- they only provide marketing uniqueness. I would suggest 25% dev effort focus on WizBang and remaining resources on evenly playing field with Exchange and Scalix.
Shared folders and other groupware-specific features that will help Enterprise and EDU sales. The workflow module may provide tangible value to some customers.
Based on my experience doing competitive selling of collab platforms vs. M$, we always encountered major hurdles where end-user wanted the "calendar pop reminders" (ala Outlook). Thus, the Toaster should be high on priority list as well.
My opinion only... -G
