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 »

Provide more feedback when approving or rejecting links

I share responsibilities with another moderator to approve new Account requests and new Idea submissions that require approval. It is very hard to figure out where one person left off, and where to resume.

I've noticed lately that the links provided in the email notifications expire very quickly. That is frustrating, but more frustrating is that I don't seem to be able to find out whether a particular account or idea... more »

Merged ideas should increment votes Implemented

An initial idea has a vote of 0 because it's like a ballad entry asking for votes. That makes sense. But.....

1. If 4 users have similar ideas that haven't been voted on and the moderator wants to merge 3 of them together into the 4th, that 4th should have a vote of 3 automatically after the merge is complete because the ballad entries for each of those 3 are now considered votes in the parent. Currently, the parent... more »

Add campaign filter to incremental export

Right now, the incremental idea export (Community Settings >> Reports >> Export Data>>IdeaScale Community Data Export) is very useful. What would make it more useful is if we add the All Campaigns/Active Campaigns/Individual Campaigns filter similar to how we have it on some other exports. Screenshots attached.

Prohibit ideas from being submitted to expired categories Implemented

Expired Categories is great feature that can be used to disallow new ideas from being submitted to certain categories (based on date).

One small problem with expired categories is that users can pass through the whole idea submission process before being notified that "no actions are allowed in that category" (see
It would be ideal if the user could be prohibited from selecting... 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?

Display results of Constraints Question in ReviewScale Stage

I noticed that upon completion of the ReviewScale stage, the Value Factor and Cost Factor data are displayed, but the Constraints data is not displayed. Why are these results absent from the "latest results" display? This would be useful to us.

The only place I see the constraints results displayed is here: https://cl.ly/1j3N0j3a2y0R

Make private ideas public for admins

Would love an option to change ideas from private to public. When you are willing to disclose you can. If you have any engagement in mini competition and would like to reveal the ideas to all after for voting.

Cloning doesnt count because it doesnt clone refine stage data. So you loose all the data they wrote to their private ideas.

Ps: Team funnel stage creates teams but they have no way of communicating inside the... more »

Permit HTML Formatting in Category Description

When categories have long descriptions, it is sometimes necessary to use paragraph or other basic formatting tages. Permitting users to use such tags will improve the look and feel of the site.

We often use the site to get feedback on strategic plans and the like - describing an overarching category in greater detail is important to us - it keeps us from having to make users scroll through a giant PDF and then remember... more »

Incorporate Real World Collaboration Into Idea Submission

Has a light-bulb ever gone off during a meeting, presentation, or conversation with colleagues? What about your scribbled notes, whiteboard sessions, or other artifacts from one of the above collaborations? Perhaps there is a way to document those artifacts by snapping a picture, and attaching it to an idea. What if from any sort of meeting, there would be a take-away you could photograph and use on the ideascale platform?... more »

Different campaign photo for landing page and campaign brief

WA Police would like the ability to use a different photo for a featured campaign on the Landing Page to draw our members into the subject, then use the business are logo/brand/image as the campaign brief as these images are often not interesting enough to draw in the members for their input. It also provides some variety and visual perspective around the subject matter and in policing we have some very relevant and... more »

After performing actions on selected ideas in portfolio the checkbox on selected idea should be unticked

After performing actions on selected ideas in the idea portfolio or members in the member dashboard, the checkbox on a selected idea or members should be unticked as the action item is done. the dashboard should be refresh and ready for other actions. currently, we have to untick the checkbox manually


Similarly, this should apply for member management panel
