Kanban Board - Allow usage for idea workflow

The new Kanban board feature is excellent for managing feature workflows, but it would be equally good for managing idea workflows.

    Jan 8, 2016

    Currently, the Idea list and chart views are provided to aid in Idea workflow. Through each of these screens, custom views can be created through filters and columns to aid in providing the key information needed to move Ideas through the workflows.

    The Kanban board is more meant to be used to manage feature workflows for each user.

    At this time, based on the current available options in managing ideas, combined with current priorities, we are unlikely to make changes in this area.

    This feature would be an excellent addition to the software product. Why would we want to exclude a visual workflow management display from ideas? Our idea management relies on statuses, just like features and Id like to be able to manage ideas just like how I manage features.

    Ideas can be a bear to manage, especially in volume. This would make for an easy to use visualization to prioritize ideas have a better understanding of where things are at.

    We also need this feature!

    @Nathaniel Collum, The columns would be the status yes, like the features. If we can order top to bottom by score it would be even cooler. Thanks!

    Has this been evaluated once more? We need this too!

    We certainly have a need for this as well.

    We struggle without a good Idea visualization tool similar to your Feature board.    We are managing our Ideas along the classic funnel; ideally we need something like dragging post-it notes across a whiteboard.... just like your Feature Board.   Sure, we can create filters and columns in your list view, but in that case... Aha is no better than just using Excel.    Ultimately we find ourselves promoting Ideas to Features quickly, just so we can then manage that funnel; but that introduces limitations in how we use Aha in other ways.    Also , yes, we've tried the Idea Chart view, but that doesn't work for other reasons (UI isn't very conducive to more than  few items).  Put me down for 2 more votes on this idea ;)

    As part of our process we several ideas.  Ideas could be features, or they could be products.  A lot of them move through different stages of evaluation before it makes sense to promote them to a "Feature" in aha.

    I too would appreciate Kanban for Ideas

    Would be great to Ideas more visual in the same way features are drag and drop.

    We have a review workflow for ideas before we promote them to features. This workflow would be good to visualize with the same type of Kanban as for features.

Idea board

Is it possible to build an Idea board similar to what you have with the feature board.

Intake Requests - provide Workflow View

When Managing Intake Requests, only two Views are available (Overview and List). It would be help greatly to have the "Workflow" View that is available on Initiatives (eg. Kanban-type View) available for Intake Requests using their specific status...

Kanban (aka Workflow board) for Ideas

Similar to the workflow board that appeared it would be great to have this view for ideas. Thanks
