Approval workflow for Ideas

It would be great if approval workflow could be added to things such as ideas, this way upon certain statuses being reached a task could be routed to an individual for review / sign-off. 

For example if an idea is declined, then a review process can occur prior to the submitting user being notified.

    Thank you for your idea. We do have a lot of flexibility with our workflows and the ability to customize them to your specific products and processes, so one option would be to add approval steps as statuses directly to the workflow. 

    Given the flexibility with workflows we don't have plans to make changes in this area at this time. We hope you can understand.

    Thanks for the suggestion... Is there any way to apply restrictions to specific users / statuses, around which actions they can perform?

     

    The reason being if I were to set the status to "Awaiting Approval" I could then also set it to "Approved" effectively bypassing the flow.
