Notification on new ideas

Is it possible to send notifications to multiple idea portal users when an idea is logged for the first time. Notification would be to make other users aware that an idea has been submitted. This is also so that the users can vote for it.

Note: I am aware of the fact that users can subscribe to an idea to be notified of the idea's progress.

    This is currently possible for Aha! users but not for ideas portal users. Aha! users can add themselves as watchers on the Ideas -> Overview page to be notified of all new ideas. I've made a small modification to this idea to specify idea portal users as opposed to Aha! users.

    Would be nice for idea portal users to specify which product team's ideas they'd like notifications for, as opposed to "all" new ideas company wide.

    I support this initiative as well! We have just launched an Ideas Portal however nearly all of our users are public creators, not Aha users. As a result, when a new idea is submitted to the portal, the public creators are not notified. I fear this lack of email notification that a new idea has been created will hurt our adoption of the Ideas Portal significantly as the only way now for these users to learn when a new idea has been submitted is for them to regularly, in an unprompted manner, check the Ideas Portal. It would be great if we had a setting to turn on notifications for these public creators so they received an email whenever a new idea has been submitted to the Ideas Portal.

    Yes, please consider this new feature.  The problem is that many users may not submit an idea and never get to the Idea Portal.  We as a product team miss out on their collectively weighing in.

    We have 2 watchers (Aha! users) added to the Ideas->Overview page but neither receives an email when a new idea is added
