Partner review

In-meeting updates: Karen
Status can be found on Mana




Our server + add-on version of Heartbeat is live on Desktop this week (all channels). It currently serves notifications/star rating questions with basic config targeting (channel, version, geo). All tests look good. We're currently working on recipe configs for behavior-based recipes (Telemetry watching functions).

Per mobile, I sent out one update last week to the draft product plan. Will send out a next steps doc after a meeting with Karen this morning.

Release Feedback

Didn't see anything exceptional. I'll be sending out an email once I've classified the feedback, but feel free to go ahead and look over the raw data.

    • The UX Team has been asked to cap their meetings at 20 hr/week. I'm currently at 27.5 hr/week, so apologies if you see a bit less of me in the next few weeks as I try to handle all these interviews and still do some actual work each week!
