WebStorm Feedback

We here at Brightidea are so excited to announce the release of our 'WebStorm Feedback' feature!  This feature will allow our Innovation Program Managers / administrators to send a quick survey to their respective Challenge Sponsors to get high level feedback around the challenge they ran on their behalf.   This feedback will allow our administrators to improve on future challenges, market to new groups to schedule new challenges, as well as display qualitative & quantitative value to their executive sponsors.  Let's see all the details around 'WebStorm Feedback' below!
