Canned admin responses to ideas Merged

As a Product Manager, it would be really cool to have a list of, say, 10 or so, standard responses that I can choose from when reviewing ideas because it will save me a fair amount of time.

I envision an area is Settings where I can add/edit/delete canned responses.

    Automation for ideas is now included in two subscription plans: Aha! Ideas Advanced and Aha! Roadmaps Enterprise+. We also added the ability for automation rules to post an admin response to an idea based on a status change.

    There are lots of valid use cases where a canned response would be helpful: If I need to alert customers to the fact that there's a Beta available or if I want stakeholders to reach out to a partner regarding future updates.

    Disagree.  Canned responses don't serve the customer.   It diminishes the transparency in the portal and discussion.   


Automated Idea Public Comment Response

It would be great to have an automated response capability established in the background for every idea that is submitted on the portal. So when Idea A is created, the creator of that idea would immediately receive a standard comment that would ...
