Knowing you need to log in to cast a vote Implemented

We've just made one of our communities public so that people are not required to log in until such time as they want to submit, comment, or vote.

In the case of submitting ideas, and commenting, there are clear calls to action - i.e. when the person clicks Submit New Idea, an alert strip appears at the top of the screen informing them of the need to log in.

In the case of voting, though, this seems very unintuitive.... more »

Update the assessment 3-star label in order to be a true Likert scale Implemented

Currently, the assessment 5 stars are skewed towards agreement since the 3-star label is "agree." It should be labeled "neutral" or whatever synonym you prefer. The 1-star label is "strongly disagree" and the 5-star label is "strongly agree." This would normally imply a linear growth in agreement from 1-5 with 4 star as "agree" and the 2 star as "disagree." However, the 3-star label is "agree" which causes the 1-5 growth... more »

Allow Idea Owners to Edit Ideas They Own Implemented

Loving the concept of an idea owner to designate a caretake for an idea and appreciate that the idea owner can update the stage of an idea they own. It would also help us if idea owners can edit the ideas they own. That will give them complete ownership of the idea and reduce some burden from the moderators for certain tasks.

Summary List View with Contribution Option Implemented

It would be nice to have the option to adjust the main list view on a campaign page to show less detail so that you can see more idea records per page. Similar to the Microsoft Outlook option to adjust between one-line and preview modes.

It would also be great if you could contribute funds from this summary view on the main campaign page to avoid having to click into the record and then back out to the main page.

Count "I agree" and "I disagree" votes separately Implemented

Hi there!

We would like to see the feature in IdeaScale, to be able to count the "I agree" and "I disagree" votes for an idea separately. Right now, there is just one counter beeing increased by "I agree" votes and decreased by "I disagree" votes. However, seeing the number of up and down votes separately would make it for me a lot easier to see if an idea is really "not liked" or people just don't care etc.

Thanks!... more »

Additional Voting Schemes Implemented

An additional voting scheme might be very useful, especially for public challenges like ours: a basic "like" option, like Facebook, with no "dislike" to vote down. Turns out the "disagree" opportunity has gotten a little nasty in a few cases. Some people are very competitive.

Option to rate an idea instead of only agree/disagree Implemented

For example
Ideascale is used for feature requests by software companies.

I'd like to be able to give feature request A, one star, for it's a feature I'd welcome.

I'd like to be able to give feature request B, FIVE stars, for I'd do all kinds of silly things naked to get THAT kind of functionality in the program.

I'd like to be able to give feature request C, minus one star, for I don't think that feature should... more »

Categories All Ideas should be "Home/All Ideas" Implemented

The categories top item is "All Ideas", but many users do not understand that is also the way to find the home page information.


Normally the banner at the top is used as the home, but in the customization case this really does not work well unless a div could be created for the area left of the name and login text.


Any thoughts for a better way to navigate home?

Moderation changes do not appear in comments until refresh Implemented

When moderating a comment the change status does not appear in the commends section until the page is refreshed. Though the top bar indicates the change has been made. This is an unexpected behavior. Both the notification and the comment being added should occur without a refresh so the page is complete once the moderation event is complete.

Front End Improvements

Always display category drop-downs for moderators Implemented

If moderators could always view the category field as a drop-down everywhere in the UI instead of a link (thereby skipping the 'edit idea' step), that would increase the efficiency of organizing ideas. Editing miscategorized ideas just to give them in the correct label is a huge time sink, currently.
