Implementing the Recordings tool was a crucial phase of the design process. At Crazy Egg, we work in small teams without product managers.
To execute the “Build It” phase, I created a product requirements document (PRD) and design specifications.
It gave our team a high-level understanding of the feature - it explained the “What,” and details on the “How.”
I kept the PRD trimmed down to the core: overall purpose, features, release criteria, and timeline for the product.
Any designer, engineer, marketer or stakeholder could use this living document as the “bible of truth” to understand the purpose as well as the status of the Recordings product.
I updated the document daily to keep our remote team up-to-date.
Here are the final designs that demonstrate the Recordings product.
