Allow for Actions of the Day to be Customized

We are building an idea submission platform for our company and would like to incorporate quality submissions and suggestions to points. However, I have learned that customizing the points and actions is NOT POSSIBLE. Your point system does not work for us and makes us calculate points offline, which is very time consuming. My point system would be: Idea Submission = 2pts Idea Approved by Admin = 10pts Idea Implamented ...more »

Identify recipients of automated emails with simple grid

As a new admin to Ideascale, I find the many settings in the Email & Notifications area both vary greatly in their description and can be frustratingly vague. Often it is hard to determine which groups exactly will get that particular email. I would propose that ALL emails (broadcast "real-time", weekly, etc.) have the follow categories in a simple checkbox matrix (many-to-one relationship): Admins - Moderators ...more »

Overriding group settings

Apparently all members that are in a random group with the selected group settings "This group may never submit, irrespective Global, Campaign, and stage settings, cannot submit comments in any group regardless settings.

Would it be possible to limit the selected settings to the particular group and not other groups that the member is part of?

End Users Should Know when Identity is Hidden

When an end user has opted to hide-their-identity they should see a visual representation that their identity is currently being hidden. Such as in the top right corner...IdeaScale should be able to reassure to the user that the user is hiding their identity.

Add some logic to Fund stage target

The fund stage is currently built with the assumption that every idea will have a different target and that target is only set individually on the front end. This is laborious and does not match some of our uses cases: 1. Fund stage is often used as a prioritization stage. "You have 10 tokens, and there are 50 ideas. Place your tokens according to your priority". In this case, a target is not relevant, but it'd be nice ...more »

Who can see my post?

When an end-user is submitting an idea, it would be reassuring if the submission form told them who could see the idea once it's published. A note at the bottom of the submission form that goes something like this: Who can see my post? The following groups of people have permissions to see the content you're about to post to the {0} campaign. - {0} - {0} - {0} This would benefit standard community members because they ...more »

Superuser tool to change all strings for common terms

There's a pretty common use case for our tool in which admins want to change commonly used terminology to something that more aligns with their vernacular. The current process involves us (or more likely, support) changing each string. Wouldn't it be great if we had a superuser tool that could change all strings of a commonly used word to something else? My suggestions, for starters: idea(s) comment(s) campaign(s) vote(s) ...more »

Add Tokens from Idea Listing Page

We are always looking for innovative ways to garner users input when evaluating ideas. One method suggested to us by IdeaScale (thanks @mattpaulson) was to use the funding stage. The concept looks good but we encountered one challenge from a usability stand point. In order to add tokens to an idea, the user must click all the way through to the idea page itself. Is it possible to add a feature where the user can ...more »
