Brightidea's Fall 2014 Release incorporates significant new capabilities and provides the foundation for future capabilities.  Below are the Fall 2014 Release updates and improvements for this release:

  • Step and Stage order within a Pipeline now correctly saves after reordering.
  • Adding additional, optional columns to the Pipeline List View no longer causes header alignment issues.
  • The Pipeline List view now has infinite scroll, which will replace the old pagination framework.
  • Data from previous Steps may now be viewed in the Manage Pages for other steps.
    • For example, from the Manage Page for a Scorecard step, an admin may select to display data from a Single Scale step that preceded it.
  • When configuring Development Steps, admins may now select a specific user to assign as Development Lead:


    • Idea Submitter: This will assign the Development Lead to the submitter of the idea
    • Me: This will assign the Development Lead to the admin who configured the Step
    • Other User: This will allow the admin to select any user to be the Development Lead

For each option, they may also select a Development Team to assign to ideas added to the Step. These configurations will apply to any idea added to the Development Step.

  • For Enterprise digests, the subject line will include the affiliate name.
  • The Enterprise WebStorm Export now supports foreign characters when exporting to CSV format.



  • Idea submission forms may now have configurable information tooltips added to the ideas.
    • These can be added and edited through the Idea Submission Form editor in WebStorm setup. Information icons and tooltips appear beside questions in the Post Idea page.
  • The Community Statistics widget no longer displays a vote count for hidden ideas
  • BETA: We have added a new Beta feature which will add rich text formatting to long form-type Idea Submission Form fields.
    • This adds the rich text editor to the Post Idea page. Rich text formatting is also reflected in the View Idea page after the idea is submitted.
