"We evaluated a number of different feedback solutions and Canny was the clear winner. It was simple to configure, connect to Jira, Slack, Zendesk and Salesforce, and open to our entire team. It has not only helped us organize feedback, but it has deepened our connection to customers."
Canny compared to Aha Ideas
Aha’s core focus is roadmapping software. It works well as a roadmap tool.
But, Aha’s feedback management feature, Aha Ideas, was added as an afterthought.
With Ideas, collecting and managing user feedback is an add on. So, it’s not as easy to use or baked into the tool.
Your options are limited with Aha Ideas. You can’t add feedback on behalf of users. You can’t embed a widget into your site. It’s confusing for your customers to use (which means less feedback for your team).
To put it bluntly, Aha is a product management software trying to do user feedback on the side.
Canny is a product management tool built around the idea that user feedback is vital. It’s not an afterthought; it should inform your roadmap and product decisions.
"The fact that I can engage directly with product and engineering on feedback and deployment is HUGE."
Feedback is the backbone of our tool, not a tacked-on feature.
Canny’s pricing is more cost-effective than Aha Ideas pricing
On the surface, Aha Ideas and Canny cost about the same.
At the lowest tier, Aha’s pricing is $59 a month, paid annually ($74 for month-to-month). Canny’s pricing starts at $50 monthly. Both Canny and Aha offer scaled plans for larger businesses.
But, Aha charges per seat. So, only one Product Manager (or another team member) will be able to use Aha and take advantage of Aha Ideas.
With Canny, we don’t charge for seats. If you have multiple PMs, or need to give access to several stakeholders, you can do that at no extra cost.
Canny’s pricing is straightforward and offers more value. You can sign up with one of our self-serve plans right away—no need to chat with our team.

What integrations does Aha Ideas have? What about Canny?
Both Canny and Aha integrate with the tools you already use. Since Aha is an older tool that’s been around for a long time, it has a lot of integrations.
But, Aha’s integrations are built for their roadmapping tool specifically—not for Aha Ideas. While Aha integrates with a lot of tools overall, Aha Ideas doesn’t.
Canny customers and use cases
Aha Ideas can work if you’re a big company that’s already using Aha for product management.
But, if you’re interested in truly making the most out of customer feedback and integrating it into your product management process (rather than adding it on as an afterthought), Aha Ideas just isn’t the best option available.
Because Canny is a flexible, customizable solution, we have customers all the way from 2-person startups to billion dollar companies like CircleCI and Mercury.
