Idea Submission Guidelines & Review Process (2705463)


Your ideas are important to us and we take them seriously. Before you get started, make sure you review the following.

A few idea submission guidelines

  1. Remember that Search field. Search the community before submitting a new idea. Don't waste your time writing something up that has already been submitted or already has an answer.
  2. Draft your idea. To help everyone else in the community really understand what you’re suggesting, explain your idea in detail, be sure to include your rationale and your perspective of value. The more we know about your idea – who it’s for, what the motivation is, and what the actual item is, the more accurate we’ll be when it comes time to prioritize and size it.

Enter your idea in the template below:

  • Brief Description
    •      Briefly describe your idea
  • Benefits / Value
    •      Explain why is this important? (When used, by which role, and benefits / value)
  • Design details
    •      Explain how would you like this idea designed / implemented

And finally, don’t forget to fulfill your civic duty and VOTE for those items you like and agree with by giving the idea a Like / Vote / Kudos.


Idea Status Definitions and Process 

Every idea has merit – we’ll endeavor to review each one in a timely manner and put it through the paces to determine community and customer value, viability, and fit.

Generally ideas will move through stages described below.


Open ideas are available for all community members to comment and vote upon.
