Our Ideas Exchange has long been an avenue for community users to share ideas on product enhancements, and vote on ones they’d like to see.
We took a look at our Ideas Exchange recently, and realized that there was a challenge with so many statuses. In order to provide more clarity and improve our Idea Exchange, we’ve planned to implement the following changes:
Add “Acknowledged”. Submitted an idea? We’ll move it into this status when we’ve reviewed the idea and acknowledged that it meets our submission guidelines.
Change “Comments Requested” to “Needs Info”. We understand based on feedback that this status wasn’t always clear. “Needs Info” means we need more information to understand your idea. When an idea is in this status, we will comment and ask you to clarify or elaborate.
Change “Accepted” to “Yes! Stay Tuned” and “Declined” to “Not Now” to make it clear that “Accepted” doesn’t mean “immediately”, and that “Declined” doesn’t mean “never.”
We’ll also remove the following statuses:
Our goal is to make these changes by early 2017. Within each status, we will be archiving ideas that have not had community activity in a year, or for features that are phased out and do not have more enhancements planned.
