An idea is a type of content that you or others can create and vote on. If your community members vote positively, your idea gets more points; if they vote negatively, points are taken away.

 

Creating an idea is a lot like creating a document. You give your idea a title and then type in its description. As with documents, you can format the idea's content as you would apply formatting in a word processing program

How to Create an Idea

Creating an idea is a lot like creating a document. You give your idea a title and then type in its description. As with documents, you can format the idea's content as you would apply formatting in a word processing program

When you've got an idea to share with the community, you create it the same way you create other content, such as a document. Here are the steps:

  • Click Create > Idea.
  • Choose the location in the community where you want to put your idea. For example, you could put it in a space, group, or project related to the idea. Keep in mind that some places might not have the idea feature enabled.
  • Give the idea a title and type your idea into the big area under the title. Note that you can do special formatting just as you would for other content.
  • When you're typing your idea's title, you might get a list of ideas with similar titles. This is a chance for you to avoid posting an idea that's already in the community. If you see something that looks similar, take a look at it before you save your idea.
  • Attach any files you need by clicking Browse, selecting the file, and then Open for each file you want to attach.
  • Set collaboration options if needed.
  • Click Create Idea.
