Ready for Beta Testing

Sebastian Hoffmann @sebionic

A few months ago, my mobile phone contract has been automatically renewed for another year because I mixed up the deadline to cancel it. This was super annoying, especially since I was planning to move abroad soon. Since I also have >10 subscription-based contracts, it's kind of hard to keep track of those. It doesn't seem like it at first, but those small sums really ad up every month. I thought to myself that it would be really cool to have a product that helps you manage all contracts and reminds you of an upcoming deadline.

I wanted to build a product on my own, simply to learn a lot, improve my skills and try new technologies and tools. I got involved in the world of no-code and started from there.

This week, I have solved a major roadblock that was bugging me for a while: Send an email automatically when a user entered a reminder date (in Zapier). There were many ways to go about it, but the way I needed it to be was quite tricky.

I created an Upcoming page on ProductHunt and got some of my friends to create an account and play around. They provided me some valuable feedback, most of it I was able to directly implement.

My goal ist, to find more beta testers next week and then launch mid-December :)
