SOC2, AI Calls ingestions confidence, Feature Merge, and some UX improvements

Changelog #23

🛡️ SOC2

We’ve worked a lot on this (by “we”, we mean “Mor Sela” did), and have been waiting for the official certification for a while now! We’re SOC 2 Type 2 certified.


🧠 AI Calls ingestions confidence improvements

We’ve vastly improved Ai’s confidence levels when identifying requests in customer calls. You can now completely control the confidence levels such that Low or High will only bring in calls that had some requests in them. only Any confidence will being calls even if AI was not able to articulate the requests/find specific features in the calls.

** This also applies to Zapier and custom API implementations

🎥 More call recorders: Fathom, Grain, Fireflies.ai, and others

Now that we have Zapier, you can have all your meetings automatically turn into feedback and their feature requests extracted by AI if there are any within them (so if you can’t afford a giant call recording software, you can still use Cardinal AI. Why not? you deserve it!).

Here’s a Fathom Zap example

🧲 AI Suggestions Change or Merge

AI may have found a few conversations for you, but you’d want to point them at another feature? or maybe there are a few that aren’t quite the same but you think they should be? Pick a few, merge, and all conversations will lead to that one feature suggestion. Magic.

Magic I tell ya!


🌋 Huge CRMs improvements

We thought 10,000 accounts in a CRM is cool.

Then we thought 100,000 accounts in a CRM is cool.

Now we think 1,000,000 accounts in a CRM is cool.

You people and your crazy CRMs.

Anything companies-related should work much faster now. because you made us do it 😉

🚌 Auto-task creation will default to teams better

AI can find or create the engineering task/ticket for you (it reads all your tickets and their content) for maximum context and understanding.

Tap on a Task property in a feature spec and watch the magic happen (secret tip: it works in the prioritization table as well)

Ticketing systems are messy. Your backlog and roadmaps don’t have to be 😈

  • Intercom Sync is MUCH faster (5-10x), even at thousands of conversations.

AI Intercom feedback automation, Pricing Requests, and more

Changelog #11

Tell us what you think ❤️ (grab some time with us here).

☎️ Intercom AI Automation

All Intercom conversations get immediately scanned by AI, brought in, and linked to the features requested automatically.

You no longer need to chase GTM teams or ask them to log & update requests from customer conversations. AI does it on its own, in real-time, as the requests come up.

Next time you want to prioritize the idea or feature, you’ll have all the customer calls that referred to it ready and linked to it!

You can Turn it ON here

🪑 Pricing Requests

As requested by some smaller customers, we’re removing minimum required seats! so you can better onboard your teams across various functions.

Your price-per-seat remains the same, but it means you can start off with $16/mo (annual commitment) as you’re growing your use of Cardinal across your company.

💬 Conversation Tab

A conversation tab is added to each feedback item, next to its summary (Intercom for now, the rest like calls, slack threads, etc to follow).

You can now see the full thread/transcription next to the summary, especially useful with integrations and automation bringing a lot of information in.

🔒 SOC2

We’re making progress in getting SOC2 compliant and are expecting our audit soon, if anyone is interested in getting a formal letter we’re happy to provide it (as already done with a few of you by now)

🍰 Feedback import from Notion

You can now bring in your Notion DB of customer calls and feedback easier and better mapped than ever (putting the right fields in the right place)

🔔 Gong.io AI Automation

We’re looking for early adopters for the same concept as the Intercom AI Automation for gong.io. Ping us if you’re one of `em.

🧸 Bugs and improvements

  • Description in the Feature side panel:

    You can now see and edit the feature description (short spec) within the side panel, that’s also where AI would drop a short summary of spec it will create based on feedback.

  • CRM Companies are now immediately synced

  • Revamped Integrations View

👂🏻Centralized Feedback Center + AI == ❤️

We have a new Feedback Center: bring in customer/prospect feedback from various sources (calls, messages, etc.), link them to existing or new features, and have AI do all the hard work for you.

  • AI will automatically suggest features being referred to in feedback (calls, messages, and threads)

** This allows you to have the link between companies, feedback provided, features, and their engineering status serve you immediately when needed, making decisions or doing research and discovery.

Here is a Quick AI Feedback Center walkthrough video.

🌂 HubSpot & Slack - Feedback Integrations

Send and view feedback in your own GTM tools: for any company or conversation, see the features linked to it and the engineering status where you work.

SOC2, AI Calls ingestions confidence, Feature Merge, and some UX improvements

Changelog #23

AI may have found a few conversations for you, but you’d want to point them at another feature? or maybe there are a few that aren’t quite the same but you think they should be? Pick a few, merge, and all conversations will lead to that one feature suggestion. Magic.

Magic I tell ya!


🌋 Huge CRMs improvements

We thought 10,000 accounts in a CRM is cool.

Then we thought 100,000 accounts in a CRM is cool.

Now we think 1,000,000 accounts in a CRM is cool.

You people and your crazy CRMs.

Anything companies-related should work much faster now. because you made us do it 😉

AI Intercom feedback automation, Pricing Requests, and more

Changelog #11

Tell us what you think ❤️ (grab some time with us here).

☎️ Intercom AI Automation

All Intercom conversations get immediately scanned by AI, brought in, and linked to the features requested automatically.

You no longer need to chase GTM teams or ask them to log & update requests from customer conversations. AI does it on its own, in real-time, as the requests come up.

Next time you want to prioritize the idea or feature, you’ll have all the customer calls that referred to it ready and linked to it!

You can Turn it ON here

🪑 Pricing Requests

As requested by some smaller customers, we’re removing minimum required seats! so you can better onboard your teams across various functions.

Your price-per-seat remains the same, but it means you can start off with $16/mo (annual commitment) as you’re growing your use of Cardinal across your company.

💬 Conversation Tab

A conversation tab is added to each feedback item, next to its summary (Intercom for now, the rest like calls, slack threads, etc to follow).

You can now see the full thread/transcription next to the summary, especially useful with integrations and automation bringing a lot of information in.

🔒 SOC2

We’re making progress in getting SOC2 compliant and are expecting our audit soon, if anyone is interested in getting a formal letter we’re happy to provide it (as already done with a few of you by now)

🍰 Feedback import from Notion

You can now bring in your Notion DB of customer calls and feedback easier and better mapped than ever (putting the right fields in the right place)

🔔 Gong.io AI Automation

We’re looking for early adopters for the same concept as the Intercom AI Automation for gong.io. Ping us if you’re one of `em.

🧸 Bugs and improvements

  • Description in the Feature side panel:

    You can now see and edit the feature description (short spec) within the side panel, that’s also where AI would drop a short summary of spec it will create based on feedback.

  • CRM Companies are now immediately synced

  • Revamped Integrations View

👂🏻Centralized Feedback Center + AI == ❤️

We have a new Feedback Center: bring in customer/prospect feedback from various sources (calls, messages, etc.), link them to existing or new features, and have AI do all the hard work for you.

  • AI will automatically suggest features being referred to in feedback (calls, messages, and threads)

** This allows you to have the link between companies, feedback provided, features, and their engineering status serve you immediately when needed, making decisions or doing research and discovery.

Here is a Quick AI Feedback Center walkthrough video.

🌂 HubSpot & Slack - Feedback Integrations

Send and view feedback in your own GTM tools: for any company or conversation, see the features linked to it and the engineering status where you work.

SOC2, AI Calls ingestions confidence, Feature Merge, and some UX improvements

Changelog #23

🛡️ SOC2

🧠 AI Calls ingestions confidence improvements

We’ve vastly improved Ai’s confidence levels when identifying requests in customer calls. You can now completely control the confidence levels such that Low or High will only bring in calls that had some requests in them. only Any confidence will being calls even if AI was not able to articulate the requests/find specific features in the calls.

** This also applies to Zapier and custom API implementations

🎥 More call recorders: Fathom, Grain, Fireflies.ai, and others

Now that we have Zapier, you can have all your meetings automatically turn into feedback and their feature requests extracted by AI if there are any within them (so if you can’t afford a giant call recording software, you can still use Cardinal AI. Why not? you deserve it!).

Here’s a Fathom Zap example

🧲 AI Suggestions Change or Merge

AI may have found a few conversations for you, but you’d want to point them at another feature? or maybe there are a few that aren’t quite the same but you think they should be? Pick a few, merge, and all conversations will lead to that one feature suggestion. Magic.

Magic I tell ya!


🌋 Huge CRMs improvements

We thought 10,000 accounts in a CRM is cool.

Then we thought 100,000 accounts in a CRM is cool.

Now we think 1,000,000 accounts in a CRM is cool.

You people and your crazy CRMs.

Anything companies-related should work much faster now. because you made us do it 😉

🚌 Auto-task creation will default to teams better

AI Intercom feedback automation, Pricing Requests, and more

Changelog #11

Tell us what you think ❤️ (grab some time with us here).

☎️ Intercom AI Automation

All Intercom conversations get immediately scanned by AI, brought in, and linked to the features requested automatically.

You no longer need to chase GTM teams or ask them to log & update requests from customer conversations. AI does it on its own, in real-time, as the requests come up.

Next time you want to prioritize the idea or feature, you’ll have all the customer calls that referred to it ready and linked to it!

You can Turn it ON here

🪑 Pricing Requests

As requested by some smaller customers, we’re removing minimum required seats! so you can better onboard your teams across various functions.

Your price-per-seat remains the same, but it means you can start off with $16/mo (annual commitment) as you’re growing your use of Cardinal across your company.

💬 Conversation Tab

A conversation tab is added to each feedback item, next to its summary (Intercom for now, the rest like calls, slack threads, etc to follow).

You can now see the full thread/transcription next to the summary, especially useful with integrations and automation bringing a lot of information in.

🔒 SOC2

We’re making progress in getting SOC2 compliant and are expecting our audit soon, if anyone is interested in getting a formal letter we’re happy to provide it (as already done with a few of you by now)

🍰 Feedback import from Notion

You can now bring in your Notion DB of customer calls and feedback easier and better mapped than ever (putting the right fields in the right place)

🔔 Gong.io AI Automation

We’re looking for early adopters for the same concept as the Intercom AI Automation for gong.io. Ping us if you’re one of `em.

🧸 Bugs and improvements

  • Description in the Feature side panel:

    You can now see and edit the feature description (short spec) within the side panel, that’s also where AI would drop a short summary of spec it will create based on feedback.

  • CRM Companies are now immediately synced

  • Revamped Integrations View

👂🏻Centralized Feedback Center + AI == ❤️

We have a new Feedback Center: bring in customer/prospect feedback from various sources (calls, messages, etc.), link them to existing or new features, and have AI do all the hard work for you.

  • AI will automatically suggest features being referred to in feedback (calls, messages, and threads)

** This allows you to have the link between companies, feedback provided, features, and their engineering status serve you immediately when needed, making decisions or doing research and discovery.

Here is a Quick AI Feedback Center walkthrough video.

🌂 HubSpot & Slack - Feedback Integrations

Send and view feedback in your own GTM tools: for any company or conversation, see the features linked to it and the engineering status where you work.

SOC2, AI Calls ingestions confidence, Feature Merge, and some UX improvements

Changelog #23

🛡️ SOC2

We’ve worked a lot on this (by “we”, we mean “Mor Sela” did), and have been waiting for the official certification for a while now! We’re SOC 2 Type 2 certified.


🧠 AI Calls ingestions confidence improvements

We’ve vastly improved Ai’s confidence levels when identifying requests in customer calls. You can now completely control the confidence levels such that Low or High will only bring in calls that had some requests in them. only Any confidence will being calls even if AI was not able to articulate the requests/find specific features in the calls.

** This also applies to Zapier and custom API implementations


🅿️ Feature Merge

You can now merge existing features!

Simply check a few features in your backlog, choose your destination feature and merge away! This will automatically move over companies requesting it and linked feedback into it 🥳


📈 Other Improvements

  • Optional Feedback provider: setting a person as the provider of a feedback is now optional (yet recommended!)

  • Add-Task UX revamp

  • Nicer company and features select UI

— Mor Sela, Philosopher


☢️ This release:

🎃 Zapier Support - connect Everything Everywhere All at Once

Any tool you use that has Zapier can be plugged in, easy.

Checkout our Zaps


🎥 More call recorders: Fathom, Grain, Fireflies.ai, and others

Now that we have Zapier, you can have all your meetings automatically turn into feedback and their feature requests extracted by AI if there are any within them (so if you can’t afford a giant call recording software, you can still use Cardinal AI. Why not? you deserve it!).

Here’s a Fathom Zap example


You can also find us now in the Zoom App Marketplace!

🧲 AI Suggestions Change or Merge

AI may have found a few conversations for you, but you’d want to point them at another feature? or maybe there are a few that aren’t quite the same but you think they should be? Pick a few, merge, and all conversations will lead to that one feature suggestion. Magic.

Magic I tell ya!


🌋 Huge CRMs improvements

We thought 10,000 accounts in a CRM is cool.

Then we thought 100,000 accounts in a CRM is cool.

Now we think 1,000,000 accounts in a CRM is cool.

You people and your crazy CRMs.

Anything companies-related should work much faster now. because you made us do it 😉

You can now integrate Cardinal across workflows and systems.

** docs at cardinalapp.io/docs

🚌 Auto-task creation will default to teams better

AI can find or create the engineering task/ticket for you (it reads all your tickets and their content) for maximum context and understanding.

Tap on a Task property in a feature spec and watch the magic happen (secret tip: it works in the prioritization table as well)

Ticketing systems are messy. Your backlog and roadmaps don’t have to be 😈

  • JIRA import is 8x faster

  • Intercom Sync is MUCH faster (5-10x), even at thousands of conversations.

AI Intercom feedback automation, Pricing Requests, and more

Changelog #11

Tell us what you think ❤️ (grab some time with us here).

☎️ Intercom AI Automation

All Intercom conversations get immediately scanned by AI, brought in, and linked to the features requested automatically.

You no longer need to chase GTM teams or ask them to log & update requests from customer conversations. AI does it on its own, in real-time, as the requests come up.

Next time you want to prioritize the idea or feature, you’ll have all the customer calls that referred to it ready and linked to it!

You can Turn it ON here

🪑 Pricing Requests

As requested by some smaller customers, we’re removing minimum required seats! so you can better onboard your teams across various functions.

Your price-per-seat remains the same, but it means you can start off with $16/mo (annual commitment) as you’re growing your use of Cardinal across your company.

💬 Conversation Tab

A conversation tab is added to each feedback item, next to its summary (Intercom for now, the rest like calls, slack threads, etc to follow).

You can now see the full thread/transcription next to the summary, especially useful with integrations and automation bringing a lot of information in.

🔒 SOC2

We’re making progress in getting SOC2 compliant and are expecting our audit soon, if anyone is interested in getting a formal letter we’re happy to provide it (as already done with a few of you by now)

🍰 Feedback import from Notion

You can now bring in your Notion DB of customer calls and feedback easier and better mapped than ever (putting the right fields in the right place)

🔔 Gong.io AI Automation

We’re looking for early adopters for the same concept as the Intercom AI Automation for gong.io. Ping us if you’re one of `em.

🧸 Bugs and improvements

  • Description in the Feature side panel:

    You can now see and edit the feature description (short spec) within the side panel, that’s also where AI would drop a short summary of spec it will create based on feedback.

  • CRM Companies are now immediately synced

  • Revamped Integrations View
