We love getting feature requests from merchants. They help us make sound decisions and spark creativity among our product and engineering teams. We thank merchants for their suggestions and then… what?
Whenever I talk to merchants, they ask, “Why are you guys so secretive about your roadmap?”

We know that getting something wrong in our app means that a server takes longer to deliver food to a table or a GM can’t reconcile the night’s receipts; when we hit any snafus, we take it seriously; this means that our product development process can be hard to predict.
