Path: Community Settings >> Engagement >> Campaigns >> Idea Submission Form

The Idea Submission Form is the third tab when we edit any campaign in a community. This tab consists of three elements which are the Idea Submission form to the left, Idea Submission elements, and Custom field elements.

You can now reorder or drag and drop all the elements in the idea submission form as well as custom field elements using the 6 dot icon beside each element.

All the elements can easily be dragged and dropped in order to be included in the Idea Submission Form. If you wish to remove any particular element click on the remove link and save. The removed elements will be added back to the right side of the idea submission tool.
