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... more »

Provide template and CSS control of community email messages Implemented

Although we have considerable control over the look and feel of our communities through the custom theme settings, there is virtually no control over the look and feel of the notification email messages that are sent from them. There is very limited opportunity to adjust the content of the messages using the Languages & Strings fragments, but we cannot adjust the order in which they are combined.

The only branding we... more »

additional email restriction Implemented

We're contemplating both a public and private community discussing similar topics. We'd like to ensure the private community gets input from our internal folks rather than them discussing on the public community. So it would be helpful if there was a reverse email restriction. For our private community only allow registrations with email addresses; for our public community don't allow any email... more »

Opt in/out for automatic notifications based on idea custom fied

The idea is that a user could opt-in/out for (email) notification based on idea custom fields.

For example, when submitting an idea, we have one of the following categories to be assigned any idea: "Medical", "Logistics", "Finance", "Human Resources"...

We would like then users to subscribe for notifications within categories by their choice (ex: Medical and Logistics).
Thus the person will receive notifications only... more »

email address pick list from inside the idea

If you want to email an idea to another user in the community from WITHIN the idea, you have no way of picking the persons email address. You have to know what the exact email address Please provide a pick list of available email addresses. Like you would if you wanted to send a private message.


See attached image of the email icon I am speaking of.

Make email address compulsory for private communities Implemented

I would like the team to consider making email addresses compulsory for private communities.

When a user registers via social media channels (twitter and LinkedIn) - they do not have to supply an email address. Although they are prompted to add this information, my suggestion is that this needs to be compulsory.

Being able to identify users that are working within our company is crucial to our community. Not having... more »

Campaign Name in Email Subject Line

Currently when a user receives email, only the Community name is in the subject line. In my company, each department is running their own Campaigns and they are not familiar with the Community name. So the users end up deleting emails, send to junk or report as phishing.


Create an option to use the Campaign name in the subject line instead of the Community so that its recognizable. 😀

Email of "new ideas digest" should be customizable Implemented

The weekly email I receive from this community is very ugly (i.e., it has little formatting and no, nice branding or look-and-feel).


It would be nice if I could customize the emails that get sent to my community so that they look more professional.


Also, I'd like to be able to add a introductory sentence or header to it so that my community knows what this is (especially for new members).

Option for friendlier name than email

The standard community settings use the members first half of their email address as the name that displays when they submit an idea. This ends up in a very strange set of "users" who are participating in a community, that does not support our company's goal of transparency and authenticity. I collect the user's first and last name as custom fields, I would like to be able to use a custom field as their display name,... more »

Email Idea to anyone Implemented

Currently the 'Email Idea' only works with Email Addresses of subscribed members of a community (even though I can enter any email address but will get an error).


I would like users to be able to send an idea to another person even if this person is not a member of ideascale community.

Let Moderators Send Bulk Emails for Their Campaigns!

Add the ability for moderators to send emails to all members of their campaigns. This would take some pressure off of the Admins and create more collaboration & interaction by allowing moderators to interact more frequently with everyone participating in a campaign.
