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.

Release time frame 6 months
    May 11, 2021

    Customers on the Enterprise+ plan can use automation rules to streamline a variety of tasks in Aha!, including assigning ideas based on category.

    Learn more and get started!

    Additionally, we will keep this idea open to learn more from customers and consider potential options for solving this without using automation rules.

    As suggested in the response from May 11, 2021, we enabled automation, however this solution is not scalable for large number of categories and hard to maintain, I would suggest to add in the categories entity an assignee field which will be the default assignee to the Idea

    We got a little over-excited and changed the status on this idea earlier than intended. Stay tuned for more details this week.

    Really need this feature. I work with a team of 20+ PMs and find is difficult to have to assign the ideas to each person on my own on a regular basis

    Really need this! Currently, we are having to regularly bulk edit ideas by category to assign them to a list of 20 product managers. This really should be automated. I feel silly doing the same task every week when it can so easily be handled through automation.

    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!

    Hi there, so we have an ETA on when this would be launched? This would be huge for our company. Thanks!

    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.

    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 would be a huge help for our team

    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.

    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.

Assignee per Idea Category

If an idea is created in a category then it automatically gets assigned to a user in the backend.

Ability To Set "Default Assignee" Rules on idea Portal Tickets

Our idea portal is used to request a variety of different feature types. Currently, we have a facilitator who manually assigns each ticket to the respective feature owner. Ideally, we'd be able to set rules about who the default Idea assignee is -...
