Default Assignee for new ideas (by category)

With the introduction of categories in the ideas portal, it would be great to have a default assignee by category. This would override and default assignee on the product.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Categories for ideas are a brand new concept in Aha!, but I can see how assigning by category would be really useful.

    Hey! Did you look at adding this feature?

    We have our HCM product managed my module.  We identify the module in Aha! by using a custom field.  It would be more efficient for each product owner to have only the ideas pertaining to their module coming to their email.  As it is, we have it set up where all product owners receive all ideas and filter out their ideas for a response.

    This would be a huge help for our team

    This would help my Product Managers enormously as our product is divided by category with a responsible PM assigned. Have you considered also having some form of notification to the default assignee or assignees. For example, having the ability to request email notification on the creation of an idea in a specific category.

    This capability is growing in urgency/importance to run our business smoothly and to make sure we're being responsive to our customers' ideas.  We're taking a responsiveness hit without it.

    Hello! Assigning Ideas by Category would be very impactful for my company as JIRA currently allows us to do it by component. Time frame says 6mo - when was that assigned? Thank you!
