    Hi - under List View / Managing Ideas / Change Pipeline, what permissions does a user have to have (or which user role) can perform this action? thanks!

    Hi Marti,

    The user must be either an Enterprise or Pipeline administrator to use this functionality. This is true for all functionality in the list view.
