  • Fixed an issue where Next/Previous buttons for the My Messages Widget were not working correctly when the widget was placed on the Landing Page.
  • For WebStorm Requests, updated the Desired Start Date logic to allow the requester to select a day earlier than 45 days from today.
  • For the SSO and API account creation process, added the capability for usernames to be duplicated.  Previously, usernames were forced to be unique with system-generated characters, which caused problems in some situations.


  • Added automatic idea subscriptions for users that comment on an Idea, or are tagged in an Idea Comment.
  • Added label support for the major text labels in View Idea 2.0.
  • Added a new notification to notify a comment submitter when someone promotes or demotes the idea where they commented.
  • For self-registration situations, added the field to ask the registrant to retype their email address.
  • Fixed an issue where idea attachments were not displaying correctly in some versions of Firefox.
  • In the new view idea design, fixed an issue where Admin tags couldn't be created if they were the same as existing tags.
  • The correct ideas were not always appearing when navigating to the Idea Board page using the Status Widget.


  • Fixed an issue where an email template for notification was being triggered even in some situations where that template was disabled.

If you have any questions about these updates, please let us know.  And stay tuned for more – our next release is scheduled for March 5th, 2014!

    That's Awesome!

    Two Questions,

    1- Will those custom profile fields be available through SAML2.0?

    2- Will those custom profile fields be available through the API?

    Hello Sam,

    The new configurable profile enhancements are fully supported with SAML2.0 SSO integrations. However, there is no support for API at this time.

    Thank you,
