Showing 36 ideas for tag "ideas"

Set all tabs to show only Active ideas by default

Set all tabs (popular, recent, hot, etc) to show only Active ideas by default. or at least allow the board managers to determine what status' should be active. If we've marked something as complete or won't do or whatever other status we may add, these should no longer display to public. Either that or allow us to mark ideas to be hidden.

View more than one per campaign on the home page

Right now in IdeaScale you can see either 1 campaign or all campaigns. What if you could select which few campaigns you wanted to view in a list? Perhaps you want to see the ideas from three public campaigns mingled together?

Bulk move ideas in same campaign Implemented

Observation that when you are trying to move ideas from one stage to another to need to pseudo that you want to move them to another campaign in order for the "move to stage" is activated.

Would be beneficial if it was active in the same campaign at once.

Logic into Idea Submission Stages

As I am creating custom fields for idea submissions, I came across some questions that would require some logic depending on the answer. For example, when asking "Does your idea require a budget?" Path A: "If yes,..." Path B: "If no,....". Could we build a logic pathway for custom fields in Idea Submission that could help refine specifics of an idea as user is submitting?

sample ideas used to seed a campaign so it is never empty: Welcome! the party has already started, not, "hullo? anybody here?"

Mark a campaign as "Seed" and put example ideas in it that are generic and intended to be copied into new campaigns to seed the activity and avoid empty party appearance.

When creating a new campaign, have an option to clone the ideas, moving them to the new campaign, including all comments and votes, but NO FOLLOWS so that the contributors don't get notifications on their sample ideas.

A way to create FOMO?

FOMO - Fear of Missing Out.  A colleague told me that some news sites like the Wall Street Journal will let you see part of a story and then it fades out and you are given the option to read the rest by registering or logging in.  For our current campaign, people can view posted ideas in their entirety but cannot comment on them or post new ideas without registration.  I wonder if this method of allowing people to see... more »

"All Ideas" listing limited to campaign groups

At the moment "All Ideas" in the campaign section displays ideas from multiple campaign groups.


It would be good to have a "All Ideas" item per Campaign Group that only shows ideas from campaigns within a group and hide the global "All Ideas" if the user chooses to.

Deleting a stage shouldn't delete the number of votes that an idea received on that stage

We recently started making some changes to the funnel that our most used campaign has and deleted some stages that we realized were not necessary. We moved ideas out of those stages and then deleted the stage. Some ideas lost 40+ votes that they had apparently received in the stages that were deleted, and this has caused users to be very upset. It would be great if an idea could keep the votes even if the stage they received... more »

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.

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).
