Add Idea Portal/Form Support for Custom table fields and custom record types

Karen Maslowski confirmed that:  "Custom table fields and custom record types (listed as Aha! record relationships in the custom fields section) are not available for use in the ideas portal."

We use a custom table field for tracking our customers and would like to incorporate it into our Ideas, so we can track which clients have requested which enhancements.

    Hi Tony, custom tables can be added to ideas within Aha! but not to portals or forms. Can you help us understand your use case a bit better? Would you want customers to be able to select themselves from the ideas form when submitting the idea? The issue with this is that they would also see any other customers in the table as well. For now I will mark this as unlikely to implement but please let us know more details so we can better understand the use case. Thanks!

    Hi Austin,
    Thanks for the quick response.  We're only using a internal Idea portal today.  Our Account Managers accept enhancements on behalf of our clients and enter those the enhancements.  We'd like to give our Account Managers access to specify which client requested the enhancement, and have the client flow through to the Feature/Master Feature.

    If we launch a public Idea portal in the future, we would hide the client field for the concerns you outlined below.

    This would be great for our internal access requests, too. I was thinking of adding fields to them so I know if they have received training, ID as a champion, etc.
