Idea management software helps you make the most of your ideas
Canny streamlines your idea management process so you can extract insights and build better products.
Product ideas come in through many channels from both customers and teammates. Get valuable insights by gathering all ideas in one idea management tool.
Product managers own different areas of the product. Make sure the ideas they see are relevant to their product area.
Not every feature should be built. Communicate to customers and teammates which features have been prioritized.
Canny's idea management system lets customers, employees, and users add new ideas, vote for ones they like, and discuss them. Collaboration drives innovation — engage with your community to fuel your ideation process.

You can get a free account that will let you use our idea management tool as you get started. For teams with a more complex idea management process, we offer several plans on our pricing page that offer powerful features and integrations with other tools.
Lots of ways! Once you've set up your idea management platform in Canny, you can invite people to visit and add their ideas. You can also add ideas on behalf of your users — either directly or through one of our communication tool integrations. Think of it as a central idea box to manage ideas from all sources!
We have integrations with most popular tools for communication, customer success, product development, project management, and more. If it supports ideation and innovation management, we likely connect to it!
Your users' feedback is a great way to drive ideation and innovation. You can capture that feedback in a new idea post and invite other users to discuss it and vote for it. This helps you discover new opportunities that your competitors haven't thought of. Brainstorming, mind maps, and other innovation activities are also valuable. But nothing beats learning from your users! It's the most insightful innovation effort you can do.
Our prioritization tools let you decide which ideas are most important to your business. You can create your own prioritization formula that scores your ideas based on the criteria you set. Common factors are vote count, effort required, and associated revenue. This makes managing ideas simple, letting you focus on the highest scoring ideas first.
