The new proxy voting is something that our sales/services teams have asked for but not something that we can implement at this time. It seems that when turning the feature on any users with access to the private portal (for us this is all of our customers) would be able to proxy vote.
I would only ever want our employee/partner email users to be able to use the proxy vote feature before this feature become usable.
Unfortunately we are unable to take advantage of this needed feature with the current way that it has been implemented.
Thank you for reaching out!
In order to set up proxy voting for only your employees, you can create an internal-only portal with just your colleagues as the portal users. Then enable proxy voting in this new portal. Your sales/services teams can use this new internal portal to view ideas, vote, submit new ideas, and create proxy votes as well.
A little background on portals in Aha! — you can create multiple portals for each workspace/product. The only differences between the portals are their settings, and the users you invite. You may want to create different portals for different audiences, with the settings appropriate for those users. Ideas from multiple portals will flow into the same product — where Aha! users can manage and prioritize them all together.
Let us know if that enables you to use proxy voting or if we can help any further!
