In IdeaScale you can set your community to different statuses which will control working of Idea Submission, Voting and Commenting.
Active: When a community is set to "Active", community members are allowed to vote on, submit ideas and also comment on it.
Disabled: When a community is set to "Disabled", members can view the community but cannot vote on or submit new ideas or comment on ideas. Note that Disabled communities can be reactivated by changing your community's status.
New users will not be able to register for the community during this status.
Vote Only: When a community is set to "Vote Only", the community members can vote and comment on existing ideas but cannot submit any new ideas.
Idea Submission Only: When a community is set to "Idea Submission Only", the community members can submit ideas and comment but cannot vote.
Please Note: The idea submission button will be greyed out when the community status is set to "Vote only" or "Disabled".
