Stack Rank

What is the Stack Rank tool for?

    • The Stack Rank step in the Brightidea's New Platform provides the Pipeline Managers / Administrators with the ability to quickly find the best ideas using an order based system.
      • Determine order of ideas best to worst
      • Send Stack Rank action items to list of people who put ideas in a stack rank.
    • When a Stack Rank action item is triggered, the evaluator / screener will be able to place the assigned ideas in their desired order from best to worst.



Configure the Stack Rank Tool:

    • To get started with Stack Rank, navigate to Step Gear Menu --> Configure Stack Rank:


      • In the Stack Rank configuration section, the Pipeline Manager will need to set the following parameters:
        • Evaluators: Select the users who will review / stack the ideas.
        • Due Date:The manager can set the due date dynamically from date assigned or manually select a date if needed.
        • Allow Assignees to Edit Idea Attributes: Assignees who are not already administrators will be able to edit some attributes such as idea title, description, category.
        • Send Email Alert: Allows the manager to enable or disable the email alert on assignment.


      • Select Activate to complete the configuration.

Assignee's experience:

    • After the action item is triggered in Brightidea, the assignee will receive an email / notification notifying them of their open Stack Rank action item to complete.
    • The selected evaluators will complete their Stack Rank action items by placing ideas in the desired order (by dragging and dropping) and selecting Complete



Important things to note:

  • When viewing an Export Report Overall Stack Rank is calculated by:
    • For each idea, averages the ranks given across all evaluators.
    • Orders the ideas by average value and determines the overall rank value.
