Idea Stage

Last Updated: Jun 09, 2016 04:13AM PDT

Each idea in your community has a stage that shows community members the progress of Idea as it is considered and/or implemented.

What stages can an idea have?

  • Inbound: Default stage for Ideas created by un-authenticated widget users. These ideas are queued up to be either approved by the Member himself after authentication or by an authenticated Moderator.
  • Active: Default stage for Ideas created by authenticated Members. Ideas in this state are visible in most screens.
  • In Review: Idea is being reviewed & will possibly be implemented.
  • In Progress: Idea is actively being worked on.
  • Complete: Idea has been implemented.
  • Closed: Idea will not be considered. The Idea is hidden from community members entirely.
  • Off-Topic: Idea is not relevant in the context of this community. The Idea is viewable and searchable, but not part of the main list of ideas (Popular, recent, etc).

How can I edit the stage of an Idea?

A Moderator can edit the stage of an Idea by clicking on the Idea detail screen, then click the "Moderate Idea" tab and select 'Edit Idea' .

What are the Recent, Popular, and Hot tabs?

  • Recent: Ideas are ordered by date.
  • Popular: Ideas ordered by number of votes.
  • Hot: A combination of recent Ideas and popular ideas.


Do we get notifications when the idea stage is changed?

The author of Idea will get an email notification when stage changes:
