  • Keep key users up to date with enhanced communication about management form submissions

  • Improved communication with automatic thank you emails after proposal submission


Keep key users up to date



You can now ensure that relevant people get notified about changes of proposals.

Channel managers can select user groups to receive notification emails when management form is submitted. The right user groups can be selected from management form settings.




Review changes in proposals from history view

No more confusion about changes in proposals. Channel managers and admins can now see the actions done for proposal in a history timeline.

The history timeline can be found from opening the three dot menu in the proposal and selecting view history. Note that only changes made after 7.9.22 are shown in the history view.

You can easily enable this setting in the channel or challenge email settings and add also your own customized message.

Minor updates

  • Adjust the phases in challenges to better suit your needs. It is now possible to delete the development phase.
  • Easier browsing of ideas. Channel name is now shown in home feed and search results.
  • Improvements in classification of proposals. You can now allow only one selection at each tree structure level.
