Wishlist Discussion

Mar 26, 2021
Video Length:  1:01:47
Presented By:  Jeremiah Farmer

Our wishlist of requests from Land F/X users is among the main drivers of new features we engineer into the software. Each year, our development team scours this list to prioritize which exciting new functionality should come next. You'll learn how we determine what's a priority and what's on tap for this year, but more importantly, we want you to bring your list of hopes and dreams for what we should add to Land F/X. Don't miss this rare opportunity to peek behind the curtain of our development process – and possibly have your feature suggestions implemented in a future update.

  • Have you sent us your high-priority wishlist items, or is it still just in your head? We can't implement what we don't know about!
  • Did you send us a well-thought-out mockup of your highest-priority item, or just a random list of everything in no particular order?
  • Does it include a mockup in CAD of how it should look, with clear notes?
