Stage End Dates and Timeline

New Stage type that is private. Only viewable by specified people/groups trending idea

We have a need to keep specific ideas hidden from the community and even the campaign that they were entered in. Keeping in unapproved is not an option as that becomes cumbersome to manage very quickly. Even using tags.


Ideally a stage where viewing can be restricted to specific users or user groups would allow us to move specific ideas, for instance that need to be analyzed for things like trade secret information,... more »

Remove Lock on Campaign - Causing Confusion trending idea

If a member doesn't have access to a campaign then they won't see it on the Landing page not in the campaign drop-down on the submission form.

We had a member contact us because they saw the lock and automatically thought they couldn't submit an idea to the campaign because of it.

What reason is there for the lock to be visible? I understand that is shows it is Private but that is irrelevant to the end user if the member... more »

Group Management

This is with regards to Group Management- I would be more than happy to get on a call with you or any tech POC from ideascale and explain my suggestions.

1. Only 10 groups can be seen at a time, so if the desired group is on page 4 then you have to click 4 times and reach the desired group – Suggestion - you can increase the limit, there is a lot of place on the page to accommodate a larger list

2. After reaching the... 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.

Duration-based stage automation

I think it'd be useful to have duration-based stage automation. In other words, have automation rules that admins can set up to automatically move an idea from Stage X to Stage Y after XX days of inactivity or since submission. This would help moderators in high-volume communities clear out old or inactive ideas. Our lookback notifications help on the user/submitter side, but if those users don't take action, we don't... more »

Stage Task Reminder UI Improvement

This UI I feel has some usability issues.

The email, by default is sent to all members who have not completed their Refinement, Estimate, Pairwise, Assessment, Reviewscale or Fund tasks. In some communities, this can mean thousands of users and that's when this UI fails to meet the needs of users. It shows 30 users and fetches 30 more when load more is clicked, and the user can click on the the cross icon to exclude.... more »

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 »

Front End Improvements

Slideview for attachments by keeping idea description separate

This is both a bug(probably) and a suggested improvement. Currently, bullet points are not always rendered in Idea Details page. This probably has something to do with the attachment image on the left.

Now, I think that this UI can be improved a little bit, and might also solve the current problem with bullet points not rendering. Truncating the description text by putting the image on the left might look nice, but not... more »

Likert scale custom field

I would like to propose the inclusion of a Likert scale custom field option for the Idea Submission tool. I think this would be a useful inclusion when designing custom submission forms for Ideas.

Reports and Charts

Ideascale already has charts but I need more specific data for goal statements, the main charts that I think would be good for the community are about ideas entered per department per year, ideas approved per department & year, ideas implemented per department & year (attached file).

Campaign specific profile question

SInce we do challenge specific campaigns often with manual groups - there is a lot a manual work in adding new members to groups.

My suggestion is to give the option to enable a campaign specific profile question - that would automatically add the person to a campaign group.
