As a portal user I want to see the status my idea has. If it's in Needs Review status I want to see it as I see other statuses (For example Planned, Will Not Implement, ect).
Thank you for your idea. This is currently possible by creating a custom ideas workflow. Each status in the ideas workflow has an option to "Show in ideas portal." By checking this option for the Needs review status, the status will be shown on ideas in the portal.
The Apply custom ideas workflow toward the bottom of this article explains in more detail.
