With many products, it can be a pain to view all of the ideas when they're only at the product level. The ability, via a tabular view, to see a snapshot of all idea for a product line or a complete organization would be helpful. Similarly, managing them all via a single page would be helpful. For example:
Product Portal On? Default WF Default PM Other stuff
Doughnuts [x] Default Bob
Muffins [ ] Custom Jim
Need it in a week because we're just starting to get the ideas portal turned on and in use and it's unpleasant to manage in the current form.
You can see all ideas across products on the Ideas -> List view by modifying the product filter.
Also we now support multiple products in a single portal. There is no need any more for an "IDEAS" product or a custom field for choosing the product.
