    Summon 2022 Roadmap Highlights


    The Summon Roadmap comprises the key priorities for integration, new features, and user experience in the upcoming year. Below you’ll see the major features planned for each quarter.

    Each year we also include the top features suggested by you on the Idea Exchange and voted on for final approval and inclusion as part of the New Enhancement Request System courtesy of ELUNA and IGELU. These features are highlighted in the table below.

    As always, the roadmap strikes a balance between necessary infrastructure investment and resolving issues reported by the community. Each quarterly release will include new features, problem resolutions, and infrastructure work and will be detailed in the release notes. The roadmap is subject to change based on community feedback as well as shifting challenges and priorities.
