Path: Community Settings >> Customization >> Customize Site Behavior >> General >> Default View is Grid View

This feature allows your users to display a grid view of ideas. Members can toggle between List and Grid views (see toggle top right). Additionally Administrators can make either List or Grid the default view for their communities (though a member’s individual preference will trump). Grid view works in any Campaign, Stage or Filtered (Recent, Popular, Hot, etc.) sort.

Note: An idea's title will turn purple once you have read it (visited the idea details page). Unread ideas will remain blue.

Here is what few of the icons stand for in grid view. Hovering the mouse over the icons shows its name.

  1. The icon with a message box is for Comments.
  2. Star icon to follow the ideas and the number next to it reflects the number of members following the ideas. When you are following an idea the star will be blue and to unfollow simply click on the star icon and it will turn grey symbolising that you have unsubscribed/ unfollowing that idea.
  3. The hammer icon stands for Idea moderation which will be displayed to moderators only.
  4. The three doted lines represents for further actions as follows:

The actions displayed in these doted lines will depend upon the settings enabled by the administrator of the community.

The List view will display two extra icons than the grid view.

These are the Assign Owner and Share Icon along with the more icon.

Clicking on the Assign Owner Icon will take you directly to another page with a list of all the members you can choose from to assign as an owner for the idea.

The Share Icon will display the following options in which you can share the idea depending upon social share options enabled by the administrator of the community.

The More Icon will now display the Idea Number and the other options like Follow Author, Print Idea and Ban Member to an administrator and moderator, while a member will see only the Idea no. and the Print icon.
