What would make this forum better?

Hello Makers!

My name is Jesse Haywood. I’m the new Community Manager of Adalo. I’m very excited to be a part of this community. I can’t wait to learn from all of you.

My first order of business is to make this forum the go-to place for community and collaboration. As users, I value your feedback.

So, what would make this forum better?

What other online communities are you in, and what do you like most about them?

Also, drop a link to your Twitter and I’ll give you a follow!

Hello Jesse :wave: :wave:

First I have to say, Congratulations Jesse :partying_face: :ok_hand:

So I’m in the Glide community and in that community when we post a question they are replying fast. I mean that community is active always. But I see this community is not too much like that. So that would make this community better. So I suggest this Jesse :innocent:

And here’s my Twitter account link Jesse :grin:

Thanks for the feedback Dilon!

Are you finding that the community (Glide users) is quick to respond, or is it Glide staff?

Your welcome Jesse :+1:

Everyone. But some experts are active always. And Glide CEO also replying for most questions Jesse :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Welcome @jessehaywood, first off it’ll be great to have Staff presence here and much thx for having a General Discussion area, as this typically encourages users to chit chat around the product I found. But yeah in general, I believe more staff presence is sorely needed, and more communication around the Features requested and Performance are desperately needed.

Adalo is a fantastic kit that I absolutely love from price point to ease of use and yes features!

Thanks for the feedback, @tbel!

Regarding communication around features requested and performance:

  • Are you referring to features that are requested here: https://adalo.canny.io/

  • Can you elaborate on what you mean by communication around performance?

Hello @jessehaywood and thanks for being with us. I’m an Adalo user since his first times, and i always found this community very useful but so boring. As I’m also a Community Manager, but for a game (PUBG Mobile) i could suggest you some stuff that I would like to see here.

•First of all, more interaction between users, i mean, all the users here are helpful but sometimes they (like me) watch the topic without answering, waiting for an Expert or Adalo Staffer online for a better solution.

•More staff on topics, sometimes the answer is “Submit a Ticket”, but is a really painful and slow system.

•I would love to see some contests, like this month the one who builds the better notepad app will get a free month of Pro plan

•Instagram stuff/tags/share and YouTube, but i seen a bright improvement lastly

•Motivate users more to be creative. We craft Apps !!

Thanks for everything :relaxed:

Hey Jesse!

Congrats on the new job! (at a great company! :slight_smile: )

I think a competition or contest as @Eugen suggested for a prize.

For example, Glide did who can build the best Christmas app. For the prize to be a brand new Macbook Air.

I love the contest idea. I can definitely see us doing that in the future. What are some prizes that would be appealing to you? Small to large.

I would probably say a new computer (to make more apps in Adalo :wink: ) or maybe an amazon gift card, or to summarize, the same prize as Glide’s competition.

Adalo provides so much already especially with Templates and such it’s a tough one, but aside from the material things I would suggest something like Expert help with your app for a specified duration.
