Release Enhancements

The following additional fixes and enhancements have been made throughout the Brightidea platform. For your convenience, they have been categorized by product:


Release Focus

WebStorm Admin Tag and Admin Label Search



As part of the Birds of a Feather event, we have developed a new feature for searching for ideas based on idea tags and admin labels. In the WebStorm Admin Ideas Grid search field, a new dropdown has been added allowing users to search by:

  • Keyword search: Standard search through idea title and description
  • Include/exclude tags: Search by or exclude specific tags from results
  • Include/exclude admin labels: Search by or exclude specific admin labels from results
    • The new drop-down will also provide type-ahead suggestions for existing tags and labels. After searching, the search terms, along with any additional column sorting and filter, can be saved as a grid bookmark.
  • New columns have also been added to the WebStorm Admin ideas grid to display tags and admin labels.

Date and Number Fields for Idea Submission Form Questions

Date and number fields can now be added to idea submission forms (on WebStorm level only):

  • Date fields include a date picker for date selection
  • Number fields provide a text field that will only accept number input
    • Note: Special characters, including commas and currency signs, are not accepted
  • More information about idea submission form questions can be found here.

  • Updated ideas grid search logic from "or" to "and"  for multiple search terms to improve search results
    • Example: Searching by the terms "mobile" and "innovation" now only includes results with both terms

  • Project wall updates are now reflected in the Enterprise activity feed widget:
    • Project activity feed posts and comments
    • Comments on To Dos
    • To Do marked as complete and incomplete
    • Milestone marked as complete and incomplete
    • Document added to a project
      • Note: Activity feed updates will respect project privacy settings. If your project is accessible only to team members, updates will not appear in the Enterprise activity feed.
