I believe there is a seat at the table for designers if you stop thinking about design as making websites, pretty UI, and small tweaks to a product. If you can start thinking as a business owner, it will change the entire perspective of how you do things.
Usually, a designer is under a PM because you let people think that you can make only pretty stuff and "we are user advocates" and all that bla bla which other people than designers are not interested in. The harsh reality is, you have to better at business than design. I have seen so many designers with "awful looking portfolios" but who advise the CEO directly on what to do next only because they have the business skills.

Will be glad to hear your thoughts on it as we are pretty new in the podcast world :)
I think the scenario you worked on is a good step forward. However, there might be a small issue. What if I gave 4 stars by mistake? Adding an undo button on the toast you made would solve this issue and make your scenario a perfect one.
Still, thank you for writing this article. I have the same feeling about the rating for calls. I never rated a messenger call... it's just frustrating to get that popup after my calls. Same stuff with WhatsApp.
Man, I registered only to leave a comment how awesome your idea is! Please continue working on it.
