Custom Views

There is more than one way to look at an idea.

We're always working to make it easier for you to manage ideas. Sometimes that means giving you the right overview, letting you dive in and explore or creating filtered views.

This week we released Custom Views, a feature that lets you save and share your way of working with ideas. From diving into and exploring ideas, a ready-made list for your evaluation team or specific insights. Just add, rename, filter and share. So everyone stays efficient and your innovation moves faster.

Bulk Actions

It's time to save some more time! Use Ideanote's Bulk Actions to run actions on many ideas at a time. Select them in the list view and run a Bulk Action that lets Ideanote handle it for you, automagically. From moving ideas to a new phase, archiving them or exporting a list of ideas, you decide the action in a nifty action bar at the bottom of the screen that appears whenever you select one or more ideas.

Combined with Custom Filters and sorting, Bulk Actions lets you automate a ton of work and makes your idea management more lean and efficient.

Columns: You can edit which columns you want to see in your List view and Ideanote will remember them for you.

Sorting: You can sort ideas in the ideas List view by the content of any of the columns. Just click the title of the column to sort ascending or descending.

Filtering: In addition to sorting, you can also filter ideas to cut out the clutter. You can filter ideas with custom filters or use simple filters like phases.

To better align Ideanote with your brand, we have added even more personalization options. It is now possible to fine-tune how the titles, text and buttons looks. Go to the personalization page and tweak the knobs of the font-size, line-height, letter-spacing and text-transform until you feel at home. Stay tuned for more options added in the future.

Customizable Idea Field Titles

Customizing the idea templates is a powerful feature, but when you add many fields it can quickly get chaotic. It is now possible to choose whether the title of each field is shown on the ideas. With the click of a button you can choose whether you prefer to have compact ideas that give you the perfect overview of many ideas at once, or big detailed ideas that you can understand at a glance.

Embed Options

In Ideanote there are many ways to share a mission. You can embed it on your webpage, you can send a link in an email and you can use the widget. With our new embed generator you can customize all of this in an easy and intuitive way.

Ideanote API

One of our most requested features has been a public Ideanote API. We have been working very hard on this feature and can proudly announce that we have the first beta version available. The API is blazingly fast and uses GraphQL behind the curtains. We are still working on fine-tuning the last details and documenting the API, getting everything ready for a stable release.

Currently the API is available on an invite only basis and we only have a few seats available for the beta period. Write an email to hello@ideanote.io with the subject line “Ideanote API” and we will make sure to send you an invite as soon as possible if you qualify.

Update: You can now read our documentation on developer.ideanote.io

Custom Login Button

In many cases the login screen is the first screen new users see. Therefore we have now made it possible to customize the text of the log in button. If you want to customize the onboarding experience this is a feature for you. It is especially useful in combination with the SAML login feature - you could for example write “Login with Sharepoint” or “Login with GSuite” to make the login experience more clear for your organization. Go to your settings page and in the security tab you will find the new customization options.

  1. Comment Likes. Show appreciation by liking a comment and see the top voted comments.
  2. Comment Threads. Reply to other comments directly to keep the conversation natural and efficient.

Weighted Rating

We all know what it can be like to have ideas flying around. If only there was a way to prioritize them fast and efficiently. You know, just the way you want to.

On this weeks' #featurefriday we we talk about our newest feature, Weighted Ratings. It makes idea evaluation on Ideanote even more powerful 🌟

Link Preview Branding

When sharing your workspace to Linkedin, Slack or another page you can now define the preview image, title and description that you want to be shown.

Keep looking sharp, with even more custom branding options.

We handle SSL certificate creation and renewal, as well as automatic HTTP to HTTPS redirects for all your custom domains, including wildcard domains.

Hidden Teams

Your workspace just got more powerful. Whatever you need to keep apart - from clients, departments to projects - you can now have more of them at the same time.

Organize your idea collections in hidden team folders and they will only be visible for the relevant people.

Custom Funnel

Enjoy working in a platform that adapts to your needs. With Ideanote you'll now be able to work in a way that matches your existing processes - while still managing ideas efficiently and digitally.

Add phases, move them around and manage ideas with as many custom phases as you need to work with ideas - your way.

Select and Radio Buttons

Custom ideas templates just got even more custom. With the Select and Radio Button Idea Fields you have even more freedom to define what kind of ideas you want to collect.

Excel Export

We've listened and we get it. When it comes to export you want a consistent format across all your missions and as much info a possible. With the new Excel export you get all that. One tab for every idea template and lots of data fields including unique ID's and Timestamps with ISO8601 timezone.

Idea Linking

Build your own network of ideas across topics, themes and missions. Just select two ideas and link them up. Voila!

Idea Cluster

What do thousands of ideas look like on one screen? Presenting the Ideanote Idea Cluster. From now Ideanote analyzes all your ideas in the background across languages using the newest Natural Language Processing technology and automatically identifies similar ideas and topics - so you can explore and link thousands of ideas while keeping the overview.

Idea Collection Widget

Collect ideas where people are with the world's first Idea Collection Widget. Generate an embed code for any of your missions, using any idea template and start collecting ideas right from your website or intranet.

From customer feedback to employees submitting cost-saving ideas right from their device - the possibilities are endless.

With our newest release you can go ahead and discover ideas in languages you don't speak with the click of a mouse. Our system recognizes what language an idea is written in and offers helpful translations on demand. So you can share ideas across borders.

From Switzerland to China, from Brazil to Belgium.

We all work better with a fixed deadline. With the new deadline feature you can set clear time limits for your idea collection in every mission. Just select a deadline from the list or set a custom end date.

Status Page

Our promise to you has always been to deliver enterprise-grade security, stability and scaleability. Depending on your plan, we've even set this in stone in your Service Level Agreement. With our new status page you can now check our current and historical uptime for peace of mind.

Idea Templates

Not all ideas are born the same. Sometimes you're looking for short and catchy headlines, sometimes you need specific information for every idea.

With Idea Templates you now have the power to define exactly what kinds of ideas you want to collect from people. Like Lego blocks you can build your own template out of Short Text, Long Text, Checkmark, Attachment and Number fields.

Idea Templates mean higher quality ideas, faster. For everyone.

Hidden Phases

Your ideas, your process. Now you've got more control than ever to decide which phases are visible to your members. Just set any phase in a mission to hidden and all the ideas in the phase are hidden automatically. Only the original idea owner and people with editing rights will then have access to those ideas.

As a default, ideas in the review phase are set to be hidden. But that's completely up to you. Hide the rate phase? Archived ideas? Go ahead 👍

Review Phase Launched

Sometimes you need to be vigilant.

With the brand new review phase you can now make sure your incoming stream of ideas is clean and pretty even in high volume idea collections.

Pre-screen incoming ideas as they land in the review phase. Just decline them or accept them and let them move on to your normal workflow. With pre-screening enabled you can sleep well, knowing that every new idea goes across your desk before it goes anywhere else.
