Allow Aha! users to setup a watch directly in the ideas portal, just like Subscribe for portal users

Most of our Aha! users do not actually need access to the full Aha.io application. Access to our private Ideas Portal would be enough, but unfortunately Google Apps authentication is not supported directly.


To overcome the lack of Google Apps authentication for Ideas Portal, we have instructed our staff to log in at aha.io first with Google Apps and then to move Ideas Portal (cookie allows access).


We would like there to be a subscribe button on the Ideas Portal for these Aha! users, that sets them up as a watcher directly from the idea portal.

    Yes - having users first log into aha and then go to the portal to submit/vote on ideas causes confusion. I keep getting messages about only having viewer permissions, then I have to tell them that they need to go to the portal after they log in. Please allow users to log directly into the portal using their Google account.

    Likewise, we have Idea Portal users that are also Aha! users, for them the subscribe button is gone and replaced with a 'View in Aha' button.

    It would be better to always offer the subscribe button.

    I've just been promoted from an basic Aha user to a full user, and whereas I used to use the "Subscribe" button to quickly subscribe to ideas, how I only have a "View in Aha" button where I have to then add myself as a watcher. This has gone from 1 click to 3 clicks and another page load. Please can you add a Watch button where the Subscribe button used to be? Thanks
