Slack to Aha! - Allow users with access to the portal to submit ideas through slack

Currently only Aha! Users and Reviewers can add Ideas via Slack integration. Non-Users/Reviewers have always been able to submit ideas via the web portal so extending that as part of Slack -> Aha! seems like a next step. 

Our users would like to submit ideas via slack as a portal user so that as an admin, I don't have to use workarounds like Zapier.

    Completely agree with this suggestion. The way it is implemented today is very limiting.

    Ideally, Aha would create a Slack bot specifically for ideas along with admin ability to set defaults/identify fields. For example, I would like a bot to be used for all the ideas coming from my internal team. I would set up the bot to create new ideas only and set a default product. After typing /idea, the bot could ask the user first for the idea title, then for a detailed descritption.

    Feedback from my team is they don’t submit ideas because they have to navigate to the site. Our team lives in Slack and I think this enhancement would make our relationship with Aha much more sticky.
