What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

If you own a business or personal brand in social media, you understand the value of being able to schedule your posts to Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. The time you discover that great article or brilliant idea to share isn't always the best time to post. You've probably discovered Tweetdeck, Hootsuite, or Buffer, and your life is better. 

This is also true for the social media that's internal to your company. If you manage a content calendar for an internal community or service, you will not only save time by scheduling your posts, you'll be more thoughtful and planful about them. 

We've created a working prototype of new service called Cadence that allows you to schedule Yammer posts to any of the groups or networks you own. Write your posts, stack 'em up, and then get busy with the higher-value work of nurturing the organic conversation of your community. 

If this looks like a tool that would save you time and increase your impact, make a backing pledge on Kickstarter so that we can scale out the infrastructure and add some of the more advanced features we have in mind.

Risks and challenges

Any software service built on the APIs of another service has some risk. APIs can change, making the service unstable or even impossible, but that rarely happens.

More likely, Microsoft could build this functionality into Yammer. We could decide to either concede, or continue to build value beyond what Yammer provides.
