Using your opportunity solution tree

Trees in Orbit are designed to keep your product work on track and focused on outcomes.
The tree structure has the following hierarchy.
  • Objectives - The desired outcomes of your product team
  • Opportunities - The needs and pain points uncovered by research.
  • Solutions - The potential solutions that would address those opportunities.
Once you have created an objective. Link opportunities by dragging and dropping an opportunity on top of your objective.
Drag and drop opportunities onto an objective to start building your tree.
Create opportunities from your backlog, or create them directly on your tree. Create sub-opportunities by dragging and dropping on to other opportunities.
Start adding sub-opportunities to build out your tree.
Create solutions and map them on your tree. Document product experiments, and assumptions and create PRDs using solution documents. Invite your team to collaborate and brainstorm.
Opportunity solution trees keep your solution ideas linked to customer needs and product outcomes.

Search, filtering and hiding branches

Hide branches to make your tree simpler, as you focus on specific opportunities.
Duplicate, delete, or hide branches from the opportunity card menu.
Use search and filtering to focus on the right opportunities. Filters will simplify your tree so you can prioritise and focus your work.
Filters help simplify your work.
