We have the need to have the customer who initiated the idea be solicited for Approval on their idea prior to us pushing live. Is there any appetite to have this built into the ideas portal?
There are a couple potential workarounds which can help with this process. As you likely know, any public comments (or admin responses) will trigger an email notification to all idea subscribers.
It's also possible to email this user directly, as this information is available.
We don't have short-term plans to expand this capability in the short-term but hope that the noted workarounds can help. As such, we will mark this idea as already exists.
