April 29, 2016 release notes
Idea portal visibility settings can now be customized for new ideas. Choose between Default idea visibility or Customize idea visibility in Account Settings - Configure idea portals - Settings.
Default visibility settings are dependent on the user type of the idea submitter and consist of the following behavior:
If the idea submitter is an Aha! user, the idea will not be visible in the portal.
If the idea submitter is flagged as an employee or partner, the idea will be visible to employees and partners in the portal.
All other ideas will be visible to anyone in the portal.
Choosing the Customize idea visibility option will allow for selecting a default visibility setting that will be applied to all new ideas regardless of user type and source (i.e. Zendesk, Salesforce, email).
This provides users with more control over how they wish to deploy and monitor the ideation process. Some have a preference for all ideas to be visible to everyone upon submittal while other users wish to have a moderation process where all ideas can first be reviewed before being made visible to others.
Choose from the following visibility options:
Not visible in portal
Visible to employees and partners
Visible to anyone
The REST API has been updated to provide support for Goals.
