Streamlined proposal management with automation and more - March updates


Our team has been making enhancements in streamlining proposal management with automation and easier channel creation. Want a quick preview? Here's what's new:

  • Participants see only their own proposals in a channel
  • Streamline your proposal management with new automation
  • Channel creation optimization


Participants see only their own proposals in a channel



Channel managers can now enable a setting that lets users and guests view only their own proposals in a channel. This feature is especially beneficial for collecting invention disclosure reports.

You can also use it with public channels and, for example, open a channel for collecting students' thesis topic suggestions.

  • Proposal submission or filling of a management form triggers automatic tasks
  • The new optimized user interface of form automation and settings
  • New automation changes the status after the completion of all tasks
