The collective power of AUGI members has long been a driving force in the development of Autodesk software, and now it’s easier than ever to make your voice heard.
(You are an AUGI member, right? If not, why not? It’s one of the largest CAD communities out there—if not the largest—and it’s 100% free.)
They’ve recently revamped their Wish List System (WLS) so that it gets feedback to the teams faster. Right now, they need your help in narrowing the top 30 wishes for each product into a Top 10 list.
Here’s the scoop:
For starters you can only vote on products you use, and you define that in your membership details. Next, AUGI is only conducting a vote for the following products: AutoCAD, AutoCAD Civil 3D, Navisworks Manage, Inventor, Revit Architecture, Revit MEP, and Revit Structure. If you feel another Autodesk product needs to be included in the WLS, you can help make that happen. Just contact David Harrington, AUGI President, to find out how!
You should know that the new WLS is now an on-going, 365 days per year activity at www.augi.com and this includes voting! Each week the WLS reevaluates the top 30 for each product. If another wish within the WLS has a higher rank than one in the top 30, they swap places. But what happens if you had previously voted for a demoted wish? Well, you get your vote back! The server will send you an email that you have another vote to cast for that product top 30. You then revisit the WLS and choose another wish. What this does it keep the Top Ten as aligned as possible with the global user voice. Whenever Autodesk needs, they can look into the WLS and know what “we” want the most. Autodesk has all wish ideas, how they rank, and how members vote, as soon as they are available.
So, vote early, vote often—we’re waiting to hear from you!
