Collect some non-vanity metrics and get user feedback. Take that feedback, analyze and dissect it and then iterate on your first version. Still with me? On a previous project, our PM introduced a concept that I call the Mood Grid. The idea was to have each developer rate their mood daily by coloring in a square in a grid with a Green, Yellow, or Red sharpie. It was simple, anonymous, and a good way to gauge the overall mood of a team.
