Sangoma Feature Request Review Process

After you submit a ticket, the Sangoma Product Management Team reviews it, and assigns it to the responsible Product Manager. Feature Requests are periodically prioritized, and the most important ones are chosen for implementation. It helps significantly if there is a good business case for the feature. If your ticket is selected, it is then scheduled for implementation by our Engineering team, tested by QA, and eventually released as a new feature. This process can easily take several months, depending on the complexity of the request, how difficult it is to implement, and how many customers we think would benefit or find value in it. Due to limited resources, not all feature requests can be implemented. However, they are reviewed and considered. So don't be discouraged if it takes a while for us to answer or to implement your request; that's normal.
