Additions and updates to the Ideanote platform.
Now you can save time while managing ideas by building custom automations right inside the app. Add triggers, conditions and an action and automate everything from simple tasks like moving ideas after 7 days to complex multi-step workflows for your innovation.
Make idea management even more actionable and efficient. Now you can create custom filtered views, save them and make sure the right people seem the right ideas at the right time. For example a view of just the Top 10 ideas, or a View that shows ideas that need to rated by your evaluation team.
From adding custom styles to embedding your own helpdocs or chatbot to tracking conversion rate with pixels. Your customization possibilities are endless.
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.
Now you can connect your Ideanote with Google Analytics and track events such as new ideas, comments and likes right from within your analytics platform. Just paste your GA code and the setup is done.
List View is here! Get the full overview of all ideas in a powerful List view right within Ideanote.
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.
Export: You can export the list of ideas you are seeing as an Excel xslx. if you want to work with it in other tools.
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.
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.
A whole new search experience just arrived! Now you can build advanced filters to find exactly the ideas you are looking for. This feature is extremely powerful and allows you to fine-tune every detail of your searches. Here's a handful of examples of what you could search for:
The filters can easily be saved or shared with your co-workers.
Endless of new possibilities for automating your workflows.
Here’s a few examples of what you can do with the new integration
The examples above are just the tip of the iceberg, only your imagination sets the limit. Read more in our help article.
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.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
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.
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.
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.
Ideanote is all about improving ideas. That's why we've made commenting on ideas even more powerful and engaging with this week's release.

What do thousands of ideas look like on one screen? Presenting the Ideanote Idea Cluster.

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 👍
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.
