Getting Started: Creating a New Idea

Version 2

    Ideas

    The idea content type can help you innovate with your user base. Ideas will have a score of support and the higher the score, the more your user base wants the idea to be implemented. In addition to the score, each idea can have a set stage that communicates back to the user base the current status of the idea.

     

    Create a new idea

    • Click the pencil icon on the top menu and select Idea or if you're on a space, group or project, select Idea from the Actions menu. 
    • Enter the title for your idea in the top field.
      • The community will try to locate any similar ideas based on the subject you enter to help cut down duplications.
    • Enter the description of your idea in the content section below.
    • You can attach supporting files to the Idea using the Attach link in the bottom left corner of the text editor.

     

     

    Publish your idea

    • Choose where you'd like to publish the idea. For maximum visibility, the idea should be posted in a place that tailors to either ideas or ideas about the topic in question.
    • Enter tags to enhance search's ability to find your idea, thus making it more powerful.
    • In the Advanced Options, you can choose to add authors to your idea if you're working on it as a team.
    • Click the Create Idea button to finalize the idea.

     

    Note: The idea will start out with a base status (default = Active) and if you edit the idea the status can be changed.
