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

  • For Pipeline Steps View, Pipeline List View, Manage pages and Action Item pages, added the new Quick Idea Add feature.  With one button click, an Administrator or Subject-Matter Expert can add a new idea by filling out just one field.


  • Updated the Pipeline List View to include pagination and ideas per page selection (25, 50, 100, All).
  • Streamlined configuration popups for Review, Single Step, Scorecard, Development, Stack Rank, and Pairwise tools for more efficient and faster setup.
  • Added the capability to "Close" a Step.  
    • For time-boxed workflows, this feature allows an Administrator to quickly cancel remaining action items, prevent editing of existing action items, and prevent new action items for a particular Step in the workflow.
  • Updated the Pipeline List View so that all columns can be reordered.
  • Added comment editing, deleting, promotion, and demotion to all Review and Manage pages.
  • For Manage and Review pages, added user tagging and the ability to edit additional information fields.
  • Added new Manage pages for Review Tool steps: Review Pending Decision and Review Decisions Made.
  • Added the ability to cancel Action Items from Manage Step Action Items Progress pages and Manage Step Pending Decision pages.
  • Improved the Pipeline Steps View page to include the source of ideas, along with larger Pipeline/WebStorm image and other visual improvements.
  • Added the ability to update Idea Title, Description and Idea Submitter from the Review tool in a Pipeline.
  • Made improvements so that a spinner shows now while a new Pipeline is being created.
