Hi there experts
I am looking to create a private internal Idea Exchange for employees. For this particular initative, a requirement is to have users answer 3-5 questions to get ideation and ensure submissions are meeting basic requirements.
We could link the Idea Board to some guidelines in our 'Gettting Started' section but I wondered if it was possible JUST for this Idea Board's Post Page, to have the questions embeded in the post page?
As they go to type the text would stay as a guide and force users to answer each question in the Idea submission process (because, really, who does read the guidelines?! ?
You can set prefilled subject but no way to do it for the body. You can add a placeholder but not the actual prefilled text for the body section. For any kind of customization on the post page, you have to raise a ticket to the support team(email@example.com) .
To add the placeholder, you just need to add this custom key in studio
form.MessageEditor.field.body.placeholder@place:idea = Enter your message in this area.
You might want to have a look at the "Advisory Message" functionality that is available within the Lithium Community platform: https://lithosphere.lithium.com/t5/Search-tools/Search-Before-Post-enhancements-with-Responsive/ta-p...
An alternative would be a bit more custom and involve hiding the default post flow when entering the post flow and show a custom form instead that asks for specific details. Upon finishing this "Guided post" flow the answers would be formatted and posted in a specific layout. We used this approach here on the Lithosphere during the Lithy 2018 submission flow. Another example would be the HP Support community that asks for OS and model details:
Amazing @ClaudiusH! Thank you for those super helpful instructions.
The way we have designed this post page, I think we need to do some customisation so it is responsive but great to know this is here appreciate the help.
And that form customisation is very helpful - I can see some cases we could use this for sure.
Stakeholders will be happy!
