How can I change the submitter of an idea?


Question:

How can I change the submitter of an idea?

Answer:

  • The Idea submitter can be changed from the View Idea 2.0 page in your system.
  • To get started navigate to the View Idea 2.0 page of the idea that you want to change the submitter 

 

  • After navigating to the page click on the pencil icon next to the name of the Idea Submitter

 

  • Within the "Change Submitter" box, search for any user in the system:

 

  • Once the user is located, select the user from the list and select "Save Changes" to change the idea submitter for the selected idea(s):

 

  • When changing the idea submitter for a team submitted idea, a active yellow light bulb will appear next to the current idea submitter within the submitter team list.
    • A grey light bulb appears next to the other idea team members.
    • Select the light bulb button next to the team member name to make that user the idea submitter:

    • Idea team members can also be removed from the idea team by selecting the "X" button if needed.
    • Make sure to "Save Changes" after completing the appropriate changes.

Important things to Note:

  • All user reputation points for idea submission will be transferred to the new idea submitter.
  • No emails are triggered when changing the idea submitter, the new idea submitter will not receive any emails or notifications alerting them of this change.

    Hi Anthony,

    big hug to Brightidea for providing this feature. One question: you said "the new idea submitter will not receive any emails or notifications alerting them of this change.". How is it about future changes; e.g. somebody writing a new comment on the idea. Will this notification be sent to the old submitter or the new one (I hope the later).

    Cheers, Daniel
