🎯THANK YOU to everyone that threw me a couple dollars! I have more than enough to make this thing happen, and have already hired a freelancer.
Here’s a quick breakdown:
Cafes can buy an inexpensive button from flic.io or bt.tn and connect it to a super easy web service called IFTTT that sends every button press to a google spreadsheet you download from me. (5 mins max. That’s it for set up.) A script in that spreadsheet counts the presses (of multiple buttons if need be) and emails you or a slack channel a summary at the close of business each day.
This will be free to access for anyone.
Addendum: A few people emailed me directly worried that I want to get rid of real human-to-human customer feedback. Not so.
I’m just very sceptical of the all too familiar “How’s your coffee?” “Oh it’s great thanks” that comes out of almost every customer’s brain on auto-pilot. Whether it’s because they’re too afraid to speak up or they just don’t care: I’m hungry for another avenue to receive feedback.
