    Hi there, 

    This is a really fun idea, I love it!

    As we overhaul our new UI, helping you get to your desired job within the workflow (or from wherever you are) is a big focus for us. I'd like to understand the process and mindset you're coming from in proposing this idea better. 

    Would any of you be interested in doing a formal user-interview with us? This is a 1-hour recorded video call in which we'll preview our new UI designs to you and assess whether we've solved your problems. We're happy to share a $50 gift card as a token of our gratitude if you participate. 

    If you're open to it, please book some time here:

    Thank you in advance, hope to learn from you.
