Currently, the only way to make an employee idea visible is for an Aha! user to toggle the visibility. It would be nice if employees could mark an idea "Visible for everyone" at the time of its creation.
Thank you for the idea. Currently you can override the default visibility for each of your ideas portals, allowing ideas submitted by employees and partners to be immediately visible in the portal. You can find more details on setting this up here.
Given the availability of the override mentioned above and other current priorities, we are unlikely to implement this idea at this time. We hope you understand.
