Our approach to product feedback

Here at Greenbyte, we take product feedback extremely seriously. We believe that listening to our customers, team members, and prospects - by taking their ideas on board - is a sure-fire way to build a better product.
We use your feedback to identify the most important features, ideas, pain points, and opportunities so that you can get more value from our product as efficiently as possible.


The benefits of giving us your product feedback

If you take the time to submit your product feedback to us, it means that you have a direct say in how our product develops over time. It means that your ideas are valued and listened to, rather than filed away and ignored.
Ultimately, it allows us to work with you to build the best product we possibly can.

What happens to your product feedback

Our product teams meet regularly to go through new requests. Once we have verified that a request isn’t already available in the system, we change the status to Accepting votes so that more people can vote, prioritize, and give us information. This allows us to gauge demand, gather use cases, and establish impact & value.

If we decide to build a request the status will change to Planned or Started. When it’s done, the status will change to Released. Anyone who has submitted or voted on a specific request will be notified when the status of the request is updated. We will always provide an explanation as to the nature of the status update.

Unfortunately, not all requests are in line with our vision and strategy, so sometimes we reject them. When this happens, the status will be changed to Archived and we’ll add a note to let you know that it won’t be delivered.


How we choose what to implement

When we plan a release, we use many factors to help decide which suggestions to implement, including:

  • Customer feedback - there are many ways we listen for your feedback:
    formal customer interviews and other research activities
    events like Greenbyte Forum conferences and trade shows
    comments and votes on issues in Greenbyte Influence
  • CSM team insights - our CSM team knows which issues are the most challenging and most common for customers.
  • Product analytics - we track how users move through the system, which helps us understand how existing features are being used.
  • Product strategy - our long-term strategic vision for the product.
If you reach out directly to our support or customer success teams, they'll be able to look up the ideas for you, but they won't have any additional information or provide an estimate for when your item will be reviewed.


Custom applications

Sometimes you need functionality that is specific to your needs and not necessarily useful for other customers or in line with Greenbyte’s strategic goals. These special requests are addressed through custom applications, which can be developed by you, using the Greenbyte API, by third-party partners, or by Greenbyte for an additional fee. If you are interested in having a custom application built, contact your CSM.

  1. Ability to lock dashboard period when navigating between dashboards

    When performing routine checks by going through several dashboards in a row, the period resets each time so one must reselect it again and again.

    It would save quite a lot of time (and feel better) to just being able to lock the period and navigate between dashboards while holding on the period first chosen.

    This is already supported when moving from site to site or device to device, but not between levels (i.e. site—>device). We would like to learn more about what pages you are using when you experience this problem.

    We are interested to hear whether this is a problem experienced by other customers so are opening it to votes.

  2. More ways to make use of the results of the dirty dozen analysis

    The dirty dozen analysis is giving very precious information but it's not always easy to make good use of it.

    Looking at turbine level on a portfolio of more than 100 turbines yields pages when exporting as a report.

    An alternative, more condensed view would be welcome, which could for example give the possibility to identify the worst offenders. (relates to being able to compare turbines)

    Even better would be the possibility to export the results to a worksheet to use and format as we want, via a button in the interface and/or (ideally) from the API.

  3. Editing excluded or included status codes in the dashboard widgets

    It would be of great value to be able to edit the statuses from the widget options "exclude" and "include" not only once. As we are filtering out status codes into different widgets, and this is a running process, it would be helpful to be able to edit these entries one by one. Until now for each status change, we need to start again from scratch. This is very time time confusing and it is not possible to double check the selected entries once saved, as they are not visibly connected to their status set.

  4. Add a Notes widget, where I can enter plain text

    I'd like to be able to add explanations for things or comments to my dashboard and a simple notes widget would be great.

  5. Real-time signal display widget - don't average the "delay" column

    In this widget, the "delay" in the comms averages all of the devices on-site. This is, one device that has not been communicating for several days may distort the figure shown for a whole site (when aggregating per site).

    Seeing the minimum delay would make more sense to see if the communication in the plant is working or not. If there are issues with an individual device I would receive an alert for this.

  6. Add "exclude data" functionality in Dashboards and Data Studio

    When I am in a dashboard or Data Studio, and I select a custom time span (e.g. 19/03/2020 to 19/03/2021) with an aggregation per month, the platform will still return the full value for the months of March 2020 and 2021.

    The Reports have a feature to "exclude data" that does exactly what I would need here - excluding the data from 01-18/03/2020 and from 20-31/03/2021.
    Currently there is no way around but aggregating per week/day, but that still doesn't allow me to see March as 1 figure.

  7. Add table widgets/reports with columns containing different time intervals

    Please add tables with columns containing different time intervals, for example to quickly have a view on the availability for all months (separately) during the past year and a final column with sum/average.
    Columns would then contain different turbines/wind farms.
    It would also be interesting to see the individual turbine availability in rows after the corresponding farm availability.

  8. Add 'Today' as a preselect for the Power Forecast

    Question related to production forecast. For signal power forecast the time span (one day period) is missing. The only option is to choose custome time interval, but it result in a constant reedition widget with the new day. Whether such an implementation is possible?

  9. Having the ability to lock certain statuses belonging to long standing issues

    Having the ability to lock certain statuses belonging to long standing issues for example: Turbines stopped for Gearbox replacement- if the PLC sends a new error status to Scada and Breeze task will vanish along with comment. Having a lock status option would prevent such issues

  10. Permanently save filtered turbines in dashboard view

    We have a bunch of turbines, where we only save site accesses and device accesses. We are not meant to monitor these sites.

    I tried to filter the turbines in the dashboard that we need to monitor. However, every time you reload the dashboard, the filtered turbines get reset to "All".

    To avoid having all turbines on our dashboard, it makes it necessary to edit every single widget and to filter turbines that we don't want to monitor.

    We do have several widgets and it would make it easier to have the possibility to filter all at the same time.

  11. Add expand/collapse button in the "active status events" dashboard widget to be able to edit main status (which has often already ended)

    The problem is that the main status is often already ended and other status hide behind the the main one. This often happens during longer "order by authority" stopps, which seems be externally controlled, however often there is an additional new and active stopp behing.

    It would be very helpful for daily monitoring to have all statuses expandable in the active status events widget. This would make it possible to view the statuses within the group and to edit all the "active status events" which have updated active statuses.

    Attached you will find a graphical example of not active main…

  13. Monitoring performance of a wind farm with a time span that currently do not exist

    I wish to create a dashboard which will contain visuals showing the data of the following time span:


    • "Last civil month / year" (different from last 30 days / last 365 days) : if today is August 20th, "last civil month" is from July 1st to July 31st


    • "Contractual year to date" : year to date data starting from the first day of the contractual year (e.g February 1st for a contractual year going from February 1st Y to January 31st Y+1)

  14. Make 'hours per category' (component) table available in Taxonomy

    For availability contracts Greenbyte provides a widget called 'hours per category' in table format. This makes it very easy to copy the data into excel.

    Taxonomy does not have this functionality though! We can only look at downtime per component as a pie chart.

    Being able to show it in a table format and quickly copy/paste this data over to excel for further analysis and reporting (e.g. GADS reporting).

  15. Delete specific user from site access

    When editing an open site access log, make it possible to delete a specific user log from the site access - At the moment when adding people to an open site access log, if you select the wrong person by mistake it is not possible to amend that log. Instead we currently have to set the log off time to the same as the log on time - It would be a lot more useful to be able to delete the incorrect persons details so that they do not show at all.

  16. Add site/device access icon from sidebar in widgets

    For monitoring turbines, it would we very helpful to have the site/device access icon or similar pictogramm able to be shown within the monitor / portfolio / stops after having connected a device / site access to a stop code. See attached file.

  17. Add status filters To Dirty Dozen

    Please can you add status code filters to the dirty dozen. Currently if i look at the top 5 stops on some sites it includes manual stops or / pauses over RCS (Vestas machines) I would like the option to exclude these, so we are able to focus on looking at the most common faults.

  18. Filter templates

    It would be nice to have the option to create a filter template/preset. For instance: I only monitor certain parks/turbines. Now I have to manually select these in the filter. It would be nice to be able to create filter presets, so I can filter my turbines with 1 click.

  19. add extra information icon available to status code

    I would be usefull to include an extra icon displaying a pop-up with extra information on a certainstatus code. This would improveinterpretation of certain status codes that only appear very limted.

    This would involve also creating an extra information field to the status code overview under administrate/contract/status code

  20. Hide or remove widget informations

    We would like to be able to choose which information we want to hide or display on the widgets.
    For example, for the "Real-Time Wind Turbine Metrics" widget we do not want to display the column of the icon and the ID.
