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?
Is it possible to implement a 'What's new' feature where people can see what has happened since their last login? So they could immediatelly see on what ideas others voted, what has been commented etc. etc. My clients are currently a bit confused because they don't really know what to do when coming to the plattform. Seeing stuff that is currently discussed, commented, voted on etc. would help them to find their way ...more »
Allow the assignment of a default Campaign Group to always appear at the top of the Campaign Group list.
This allows the user to have a "Home" campaign before any other campaigns he/she have access to.
Would be great if the open text fields in the administrator's view had some sort of text editor/formatting options. Many on our team do not know HTML and are struggling with formatting the text for their campaigns.
Archived Campaigns are separated from active campaigns on the front-end, but not in the admin panel. It would be great if we could also do this on the admin side - it would really help with long-term management of communities.
Edit: this would probably look like it does on the front-end, with archived campaigns just sitting below active campaigns.
I linked my Ideascale account with Google, so I can sign in with my Google account. This is a really nice feature, I'm happy to be able to use it, and I have been doing this for a long time already. But when I looked at my Google Accounts page today, I was scared by the fact that IdeaScale needs such a lot of permissions to work: - Google Contacts - Google Plus - Picasa Webalbums Other sites that I use Google to ...more »
Option to attach files to a new idea when submitting instead of having to click on the idea title later on.

So let’s just say for example that I vote for 60 ideas during the year. I would the ability to keep track of the ideas I voted for. This would allow me and other users to personalize our experience within Idea Scale and record only those ideas relevant to me. The only current method is through the Activity Stream which stops after 10 lines and doesn't quite help in creating a searchable record of past “agreed” ideas ...more »
I suggest allowing moderators to use idea statuses to control the flow of a conversation. Here's a simple three-status example system:
Status – Open: All users can comment and vote on it.
Status – In Review: Locks the idea for review, but moderators can still comment on it.
Status – Closed: Nobody can comment on it.
(Standard disclaimer: I speak only for myself here, not for my employer.)
For many settings (e.g., innovation tournaments) accurate voting on ideas is important. There are clear order effects in voting. By displaying ideas in random order, these effects are minimized. An option to display ideas in random order would be very helpful. The randomization would be done for each session/user.
I know we'd discussed this as mainly a challenge for admins, but I think there's an argument to be made that success begets success, and the easier users can see this at-a-glance information, especially in successful communities, the more likely they are to participate, or continue participating.
