Ability to remove votes from ideas

Contributers and greater should be able to remove votes from ideas. This would prevent an issue where Zendesk tickets can't be linked to ideas due to the user already having voted for the idea.

    Removing votes from individual contributors would be handy. But also removing all votes on an idea or disabling votes completely on individual ideas. This would be helpful in situations where I would like to run testing/survey amongst some users or staff. i.e. They get 10 votes each and can choose from 20 ideas, can use multiple votes an any one idea...

    Also - a regular refresh of votes (1 per month?) would be great. We are wanting to start "fresh" on the existing ideas with users having a limited number of votes in our internal idea portal.

    This suggestion has my vote... just please don't remove it :).

    I have a similar use case as Jonathan.  We had a round of voting on suggestions during a UAT phase prior to product launch.  Now that we've launched and there are a lot more suggestions in the portal, I'd like to be able to start fresh and ask for votes again.

    Just want to add my $.02 - we have clients vote on a subset of enhancements each quarter to get into the next release, it would be great to be able to reset on the enhancements up for consideration prior to the voting cycle so it doesn't give an advantage (enhancement has been in backlog a long time, already has a number of votes, etc).

    Using the idea portal, we have users conducting votes for this cycle. In a month or two we are going to reset voting and ask the user community to vote again on priorities. We want the vote counts to revert back to zero because priorities change, business changes, and so on. So each round, each user has X votes, we tally all the votes, then next cycle we start again with all ideas at zero and each user with X votes.

    So the ability to reset and notify the users that a fresh round of voting is open would be very nice to have.

    I would like to be able to configure when votes are released from an Idea.

    Example: One portal the votes are released to be reallocated once the feature is committed to and planned for a release. Another portal the votes are released once the feature is implemented and shipped.

    I've returned to this idea in hopes of finding an update. Unfortunately, don't see anything but have thoughts to contribute on how this might work.

    Instead of completely re-setting vote count to zero, should it be set to 1 with the 1 vote attributed to the requestor and if an admin created it, set to 0? After votes are reset, when the round of voting occurs, the portal user that has created ideas will see his votes already taken and will have the option to remove his vote without changing the created by field.

    As priorities shift and change it would be nice to be able to clear out all votes when needed and have teams re vote on priorities. Sometimes a total reset is needed due to items that have been in the backlog a long time and already would have a number of votes.
