Understanding the Brightidea 'Member Landing Page'

The Brightidea landing page incorporates new activity and displays a whole new look in the Brightidea community!

  • The Landing page is not a substitute for a Brightidea profile - this is a page meant for users to see a full overview of your activity in your innovation community when logging into Brightidea.
  • Administrators can add widgets to the landing page as well as edit via CSS.
  • The member landing page can be found in one of dynamic fields choices in your navigation selection under "Member Landing Page"

    Is it possible to apply the same layout of section "11. Your Statistics" to Webstorm's "Community Stats" widget?

    Hello - unfortunately the designs are fixed for all out of the box widgets - you could however try and updating them using CSS.

    On the main image above you've got a widget called My communities - I can't for the life of me find it and it's the one I'm looking for ... can you tell me where it is. THanks

    Hi Damian,

    That widget is just our regular beta community directory widget titled "My Communities". There is no actual "My Communities" widget in the software. If you'd like, I can go ahead and add that widget for you if needed.
