Support public submission of ideas into private portals

I want my customers to be able to submit ideas, but not see the submitted ideas (i.e. a submit-only portal), but I also want all of my employees to be see the submitted ideas and submit their own ideas (i.e. a private portal). It would be nice to have a portal that combines both of these capabilities.

    We are adding the ability to have multiple products per idea portal. This will also allow the possibility of multiple idea portals for the same product(s). So you will be able to have a submit-only portal and a private portal that cover the same ideas.

    The configuration of idea portals will move from the Product Settings to the Account Settings section. This will allow a single portal to span multiple products. If you configure you portal with multiple products then users will be prompted to choose the product before creating a new idea.

    This would be useful in contexts like ours. For various reasons, we have to keep our future product plans--including ideas--close to the chest when dealing with customers, but we can be more open with employees.

    • Allowing anyone to submit an idea (without registration) allows us to crowdsource.
    • Allow employees to vote on ideas allows us to vet the ideas with domain experts within the company.
