Roadmap

The GOV.UK Notify roadmap shows the things we’re working on and when we hope to have them ready for you to use.

Notify is in public beta. This means it’s fully operational and supported, but we’re regularly adding new features. The roadmap is a guide to what we have planned, but some things might change.

You can contact us for more detail about these features, or to suggest something else you’d like Notify to offer.
