Signal for how easy/difficult something is
Could be time based (ex. 3 days, 1 month) or simply how difficult it is (ex. hard, easy). This will help set user expectations.
Identical post detection
When a user is creating a new post, search for similar posts (like we do right now). However, if their new post is extremely similar to an existing post, then add another step saying "Are you sure you didn't mean to vote on X?".
It would be great if we could also embed the roadmap via a widget just like we can with the boards.
Verified Checkmarks on Posts
My company uses Canny for keeping our users aware of current bugs in the system. It would be really great if we could add a verified checkmark to posts to let users know the bugs we're certain are real.
Add a voter using their email
Currently, to add a voter to a post you look them up by name, but if lots of voters have the same name this doesn't work well. It'd be helpful if you could add a voter by name or email.
Support Open Graph Previews of Canny Items that are Publicly Linkable
It would be awesome if platforms like Discord, Twitter and Facebook would display OpenGraph previews/cards for the title and body of a Canny post. In the community I am part of, we often share links to Canny items to each other to rally support and create awareness for Canny items.
Saved Search Notification Settings Missing
Within a Collection, each user has notification settings related to how often they're informed on listings, status updates, and saved search results to review. The Saved Search settings are missing for this account and I was able to recreate the issue on my end as well. The screenshot attached shows that a Saved Search is linked to this collection, yet the Agent is unable to change any notification settings in relation to the Saved Search.
Markdown editing for posts
Github has really streamlined things so that you're able to communicate quickly and effectively. If Canny has a technical audience, then markdown editing may be a worthwhile thing. If not, then it tends to be met with glossed-over stares. I, for one, feel at home when editing markdown. Just a thought!
