Enable auto recognition of users' names when emailing them ideas

When I email an idea to a colleague using the [email] link under the idea title, I have to type in their full email address - big pain and quite clunky. If all our users are in the system already, why can't I just type in 'john' and have all the users with 'john' in their profile come up so I can select the one I want? Tagging people in the comments section of an idea works this way, but not in the email section.

Option for sending custom e-mails when the idea enters to the next stage in a particular campaign
This email trigger feature could be integrated into stages settings or an action item in the Automation builder
(The campaign user group is different - why use the same message for all)

Allow customization of Email Digest notification to local timing

As IdeaScale is being used worldwide, I find that there is a need to allow Moderators to be able to customize the sending/publishing of Email Digest notification to cater and suit to their local timing.

For e.g. my daily email digest notification is usually sent out at 1.39am to 1.57am, SGT and it could cause a disturbance to those who keep their phone turned on all the time to receive important emails.

Better email/unsubscribe controls for users and admins

Broadcast email to users is pretty flawed right now. Users need an "unsubscribe" option or at least "Update my mail preferences" link. I sent one broadcast mail to our users - and several answered that they wanted to be taken off the list.

AND/OR - for broadcast list it should give me the option to send only to users who have opted in to weekly or daily updates (in other words, to exclude members who have already said... more »

Show how many users have subscribed to broadcast email.

Community administrator can set default broadcast preference for new members but later user has ability to disable broadcast subscription from profile section. It would be helpful for administrator to know updated information on number of broadcast subscriber just like our current digest subscriber option (refer attachment) It would help us troubleshoot when number of broadcast email sent from broadcast email log does... more »

Option to create @ mention submission field in ideate stage

During submission it would be extremely valuable to be able to create @ mention custom fields.

Could be used for the submitter to notify a manager - could also be an email field where the system then automatically sends a notification.

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.
