Front End Improvements

Send ideas using @username instead of just e-mail

When you want to share an idea, currently you click on "Email Idea" and you can then you are prompted to enter in the email address(es) that you'd like to send the idea to. It would be nice to have the ability to send ideas via email but using their @ username, so that users don't have to leave IdeaScale, go to their Outlook, find the contact card for that person, copy the email, go back to IdeaScale and paste the email address. It keeps the user in IdeaScale, and it saves time, and it leverages the IdeaScale "Messages" feature (in the top right corner, next to notifications) too!

 

Essentially, add ability to share an idea via PM in IdeaScale, and/or use @ username to generate e-mail for convenience.

What type of user would this benefit? Standard Community Members, Reviewers/Evaluators, Moderators, Administrators
