Need to schedule heating for less than an hour

Mcgill

Please reduce the arbitrary minimum 60 minutes between adjacent temperatures in the schedule.

Many people can no longer afford heat their home to a comfortable temperature but must budget their energy expenditure very carefully. 

We need to be able to schedule the heating to turn on them off for less than an hour, 15 minute increments ideally and we need a heating boost function ideally for 15 minute increments. 

Energy costs are crippling. Please support those who bought your products by providing this functionality we need during these exceptional times. 

And please don’t close this post down quickly, we need to hear from people worldwide with their insights.

Dear Jake,

It doesn’t take many interactions here to realise these mis-directions are a wall of molasses. 
Do your job. Close the thread up so the complaints get granulised. 
We all realise this is a shame for those that have skin in the game.

Hi Edward,

May I ask why do you want to close this thread so quickly?

Hi Edward,

Your reply is very much a non-answer.

It's looks like something you cut and paste onto every enquiry.

How do us users get past your gate keeping and actually get some small improvements?

Hi Edward, Below we see Garrett saying he was going to pass on some of the feature requests that 7 members wanted. Could you find out the progress of the requests please?

I have sent this feedback to the appropriate team as a feature request and I appreciate you providing us with the feedback. At this time I will be locking this thread. If you have any other concerns or questions, please feel free to create a new thread.

Hi McGill,

 

The feedback process is a really important part of product development for our internal teams. While we don't have access to the insights on how the decisions are made on what features will be included in feature updates, I can reassure you that all the feedback left is considered. You can always stay keyed into the community forums, our social media accounts, and the blog posts to see updates on upcoming and new features. Let me know if you have any other questions I can help with.

 

Thanks,
Jeff

Thanks Jeff,

I hear your words. To engender trust and understanding can you give me a recent example of a requested Nest feature being released in software please?

Jeff

Sure, Mcgill.

 

The Home app for the web is releasing now and it was a highly requested feature. Lots of people were asking for the ability to control their Home accounts from a desktop or laptop computer, and this was a feature the team worked hard to make a reality. A lot of past bug fixes were found and reported by the community and were resolved by compiling feedback reports to find root causes. Some additions to the apps or services are simple things and can be added quickly, but many take time as development roadmaps are laid out pretty far in advance. I can never know what suggestions from the community will make it into future releases, but I do know they help shape the direction of decision making behind the scenes.

 

Thanks,
Jeff

Typical Google response, give a bs reply, ignore and shut down

Yep. It’s so Drone like. 
The Nest products were truly innovative and very well made, probably Engineering led. I’m amazed the Marketeers think they are cleverer than the buying public, but that’s how empires fold.

Absolutely agree, the Nest Thermostat scheduling needs the ability to do less than an hour at once. Please take this feedback!! 1/2 hour and 45 minute intervals would be excellent!!

Hi everyone,

 

We deeply appreciate you sharing your thoughts and experiences, and we'll take it as feedback. We hope we can change your mind in the future. 

 

For now, sending a feedback through this link is a way for us to collect user requests for a specialized team to check.

 

Thanks,

Mel

Mel,

When people read your reply it seems helpful, but it's not, no, since the link takes you to a page with platitudes to submit via the Google Home App.

Most people would think it could be part of your job do this for us!  Actually  helpful, is it possible to try, instead of asking us to vacuously submit yet again. 

Like most Purchasers of Nest, we use the great Nest App not the clunky Google Home App.

I suggest your processes are never used for anything actually important.

Lets improve together.

Regards

McGill
