  • Improved Enterprise search performance to make it up to 3 times faster.
  • Fixed an issue where images for ideas posted would sometimes not show in the Post Idea preview.



  • Added an option so that, when category images are enabled, idea submitters are not able to add their own idea image.
  • Updated Idea Board defaults so that, after a user has entered a new idea, the default sort will be the Most Recent, so they can see their new idea on the list.
  • Added a short url format for WebStorm Idea Lists: https://<affiliate><webstorm-short-name>/boards#grid_random-list
  • Fixed a bug where pasting idea text from Outlook into a new idea could sometimes display incorrect text.
  • Fixed an issue where tag notification emails could sometimes be triggered even though the WebStorm email template "Tag(s) Added to Idea" was off.
  • Resolved a problem where email notifications sometimes weren't  addressed properly to the idea submitter for tag updates after comments were made on an idea.



  • Enhanced Scorecard Action Item email subject and Proposal Action Item email subject so that special characters are supported.


API Updates:

  • Enhanced the Status and Category API to accept the parameter with=idea_count, which will add the count of ideas in the response.


If you have any questions about these updates, please let us know.  And stay tuned for more – our next release is scheduled for July 23rd, 2014!
