Idea Submission Settings

Setup and implementation of Idea Submission settings

Path: Community Settings >> Customization >> Customize Site Behavior >> Idea Submission Settings


This section allows the administrator to enable/disable various idea submission form-related options.


Idea Title Length Limit (number of characters, must be between 20 and 128): Defines the number of characters allowed in the idea title. The default is 64 characters.
Idea Body Length Limit (number of characters, 0=unlimited): This allows to define an upper limit to the number of characters that an idea description box can contain.
Ideas in Ideate Stage are Editable by Idea Submitters and Co-Authors: When ON, the Idea Submitter, and co-submitters are allowed to Edit the idea even after Idea has been submitted. Note: The idea submitter can edit the ideas only if they are in the Ideate stage.

Allow a single Idea to have multiple submitters: Enabling this will allow the ideas to be assigned to multiple submitters/contributors.

Note: Multiple submitters/contributors cannot be added for anonymous ideas submissions.

Administrators May Submit Idea on Behalf of Another Member: Enabling this would give access to all the administrators of the community to submit Ideas on behalf of a member of the community thus allowing the flow of ideas into the community.

Allow Idea Report abuse or Report duplicate: Enabling this setting will allow members to report an idea as abused or duplicate.
