Our organization promises to review and take some action on any idea that receives over 25 votes. We don't count internal votes toward that total, but internal votes will push it over that threshold.
The main problem is that the customers only see the vote total in the Ideas Portal. So we can have 3 customer votes and 22 internal votes. Customers will only see the 25 and be chasing us for answers, even though that idea is nowhere near the threshold for review.
This also applies to standard views. The main Vote Overview are that shows new and popular ideas would be a great screen to help us manage the ideas, but it's polluted with votes that make the whole thing unusable. When we go to create any new view, the best we can do is mark all the email domains that we want to include in the view, which is a cumbersome and heavy lift when I want to quickly create different views of Ideas. To be clear: filtering domains out of reports does not handle this use case.
What we really want is global a feature that removes votes according to email domain from all counts displayed everywhere: in new views, in standard overviews, and especially in the externally facing Ideas Portal.
