How do I edit or change the status of an idea?

Statuses are controlled and set by an Organisation Admin and allow you to move an idea to the next stage or action an idea once it's been implemented.

Statuses are designed to adapt to your business needs, we initially have 4 idea statuses pre-set but you're able to add, edit or delete the Idea Status via the settings page:

Please go to the ‘pipeline’ section of your ‘admin settings’ page to add, edit or remove statuses.

Here you can see a page with all current statuses on your platform and the number of ideas currently in each status.

Adding new statuses

To add a new status choose ‘add new status’ in the top right corner and complete the form.

Edge Score:

When you create a new status, there is an option to determine the 'edge score' – this is the weighting applied to the status in the ranking in the home feed, with 10 being the highest importance, 0 being the lowest. So if, for instance, you changed the status of an idea, and that status had an edge score of 10, you are prioritising the display of that idea in the feed, as it will rank higher.

Visible in Feed:

This means that ideas in this status will be visible in the default feed view. You might want to prevent users from discovering ideas that have been archived for example.

Editing existing statuses

To edit an existing status click the … and choose edit. Here you can change the name, edge score and feed visibility.

You can also change the order of statuses with the ‘move down’ and ‘move up’ options. These change the order the status appear in your pipeline.

Finally to delete a status please choose ‘delete status’. You first have to remove all the ideas from that status within the pipeline.
