Brightidea's most recent software release took effect on Wednesday, April 6, 2016, 5:00 PM PST. If you have received these release notes via email, this post may be truncated. To read complete documentation, please visit the Product Release Notes forum in the Brightidea Support Portal.

The following updates and improvements have been made:

Pipeline Management

  • The Find Owner step in Idea Management Pipelines has been updated; if the Assignee of a Find Owner Action Item wishes to return the Idea, the Idea is sent back to the first Assignee in the Step
  • In the People Pillar Users view, the Last Session section now displays "Never logged in" for Users who have never logged in to the system
  • Email alerts sent from Pipelines now respect the Contact Email setting configured in WebStorm Setup; if this is not configured for the WebStorm, emails will respect the Contact Email setting in Enterprise Setup
  • For Pairwise Steps, Ideas added to the Step after assigning Action Item(s) will now be incorporated into the Pairwise analysis, i.e. new pairs will be generated
  • When deleting Action Items for Single Scale and Scorecard steps, scores in the Step Manage page are now recalculated
  • Fixed an issue in which Category and Status would not display correctly in the Pipeline List view
  • Fixed an issue in the People Pillar in which, after adding a new User, subsequent Users were not created correctly
  • Fixed an issue in which Development Action Items would not correctly display the User Selection Development field type
  • Fixed an issue in which Exports for the Development Step would incorrectly indicate that the Action Item was completed



  • The Projects List in the Member Landing page now appears correctly when Pipeline 2.0 is enabled, but Switchboard 2.0 is not enabled



  • The View as Ordinary User feature has been updated to no longer display Private Comments
  • Fixed an issue in which, after tagging a User in an Idea Comment, text after the user tag would not display correctly
  • Fixed several issues with copying existing WebStorms:
    • Attempting to copy a WebStorm without an associated Pipeline would cause an error
    • The newly created WebStorm would not apply the custom CSS applied to the original WebStorm
  • Fixed an issue with Post Idea 2.0 in which, when adding a YouTube video, the Idea would not be submitted correctly
  • Fixed an issue with System Email Messages in which line breaks would not appear correctly in the sent email
  • Fixed an issue in which Updates to the Activity Feed would not appear correctly
  • Fixed an issue with View Idea in which, after applying a filter on the Idea Board, navigating through Ideas would not respect the applied filter
  • Fixed an issue in which, when adding multiple Admin Comments, the wrong comment would be pinned to the top of the Idea Comments list


WebStorm Admin

  • Fixed an issue with the WebStorm Admin Ideas grid, in which filtering by Date would display Idea results that fell outside of the selected date range
  • Fixed an issue with the Ideas Grid Export in which Date Submitted would display the incorrect date
