Thank you once again to everyone who participated in the recent survey. There are so much that we learnt through this survey and we will slowly but surely incorporate most if not all of the learnings.
1. many of StockCafe’s features are not used
Essentially, most users only love/use the Portfolio Management feature and everything else can be a distraction. So, we will simplify/hide many features over time to keep StocksCafe looks clean and easy to use.
In fact, we just released the first iteration of the new navigation today. Do check it out!
2. StocksCafe is complex and the learning curve is Steep
3. We want more advanced features
In contrast to the two points above, there is another group (although significantly smaller) of power users who are asking for more advanced/complex features.
To handle requests from both camps, we are considering create another website/app to better segment users.
4. Manually entering transactions is painful
Ultimately, I think the way to go in the long run is for StocksCafe to become a brokerage somehow.
5. Having to handle stock splits events manually is tedious
We have a feature in the pipeline to semi-automate this. We have successfully tested it with the recent split event for C31 and we will be rolling this out fully in the coming weeks/months.
6. StocksCafe should be free or mostly free
There is always a camp that is requesting for StocksCafe to be free. As before, my response to that is, nothing is truly free. If it is “free”, you are either paying for it in a different way (e.g. ads) or someone else is paying it for you.
As always, happy to hear any thoughts / feedback / suggestions.
