Email ideas to IdeaScale & non IdeaScale members

Path: Community Settings >> Integration >> App Directory >> Social Share>>Idea Sharing via Email to any Email Address

This email tool allows members to send an idea to all the registered users in the community as well as to people who are not IdeaScale users. Thus the Administrator can use this switch to his benefit and get more people interested to participate in the community.

The members would be able to send out emails to non-IdeaScale members only if the administrator has enabled the option of Idea Sharing via Email to Any Address.
