Create Scores based off Survey Input from the Ideas Portal (Game Changer Idea!)

I want to use surveys on the Ideas Portal to rank ideas and features.  Ideally, I can create custom fields that submitters fill out that are used to score ideas, place them on the ideas chart, and rank features converted from those ideas.  This would save our team tons of time.  

More Details:

I don't want to have to manually calculate scores with subjective input from my team all the time.  The main use of the ideas portal for us is the ability to poll input from customers, Sales, Customer Service, and Management.  This would totally save us time and discussion if we could objectivize their input.  

I would like for Customers and any submitter to be able to score their idea and for voters to be able to score it as well based on custom fields we create.  (I would typically use Customer Value vs. our Rank in the Market for a chart and then maybe Technical Risk vs. Customer Value too).  

These custom scores should be fields that follow an idea from submission, to its Scorecard, to the Idea Charts, and then to the Feature ranking options on the Feature Lists and Boards.  They could include custom fields like:  Customer Value, Rating vs. the Market, # Votes, Tags, etc.

    Automate your scorecard metrics

    We just shipped the ability to calculate metrics in Aha! scorecards based on data in other fields. This allows you to add number and text fields to your ideas form that can then be referenced in your scorecard metrics — bringing even greater consistency to your prioritization process.

    It sounds like this idea is also asking for the ability for idea voters to be able to score ideas. We will keep the idea open to continue monitoring feedback.

    This would be an amazing feature to have in Aha! I curate a weekly CCB meeting that reviews a subset of ideas from our portal. Currently, I select the ideas for review, tag them with a custom field, and build a list report in Aha. Then, I have to create a Google Form with our scorecard metrics so each member of the CCB can evaluate each idea themselves. After our weekly meeting, I manually update the scorecard in Aha based on the results of the formulas I apply in the resulting Google sheet (sums and averages - nothing super complex).

    It would save me a few hours every week if I could use Aha for the report and the voting rather than transposing everything from Aha into the Google Form and back.

    Thanks for keeping open- what would be killer for us would be a function that allows the crown to score impact and effort. other idea collection software has a crowdsource on this including scatter diagrams that allow you to see the averages as well as the spread.

    Hi @aha, i remember completing a user survey about this kind of capability in March this year, is there anymore you can share on whether this feature will be developed??

    YES! please do something to solve this problem... "I don't want to have to manually calculate scores with subjective input from my team all the time.

This would totally save us time and discussion if we could objectivize their input. "

    This is one of the main things we were hoping to accomplish with this system. does this really well. They call it Priority Poker. It allows stakeholders the chance to score items/features at their own leisure which is great for remote teams. It averages the scores and then gives you one last chance to reconcile the score.

    This is exactly what I have been trying to figure out how to do today. I'd like to use this internally, with sales, CX, and implementation teams. Question - in the Ideas list view I can add data columns about the voting process. Does anyone know what the "Vote Value" field is associated with? It's not the total vote count.

    is this scoped for anytime in the near future?

    This will be a great feature. In my use case, I am looking for a capability by which an idea submitted by my stakeholder can be scored by him. The Aha! score consists of 5 factors in my case, and i want the stakeholder who owns each of those factors to set their score.

    Hi Ian, this is not currently planned on our roadmap. We will continue to consider it for the future and monitor customer feedback here in the meantime. Thank you!

    @aha Can we get an update on this feature?  It's very highly ranked but no progress for nearly 3 years.

    Surveys would be a powerful tool to close the loop on an idea that was delivered.  Allowing some kind of light weight surveying capability, eg) Net Promoter score, or a custom ranking to see how your collaborators think you did with the idea having come to fruition.

    Thanks everyone for your comments.  Just circling back to see where this idea is.  

    Right now, the main purpose of this feature for us would be to get input from the user (whatever the input might be-- score 1-5 for importance, difficulty, revenue, etc), and have that input transfer with the idea all the way to when it is created as a feature.  We have a hard time prioritizing / justifying features when we can't see the info that came in with them when they were an idea.  

    We typically ask people to rank the idea 1-5 Customer Value and Our Market Rating, but ideally people could create any two values for their matrix .  If we could use the survey inputs to plot ideas automagically on a chart rather than having to manually / subjectively place them ourselves the way it works now, it would go a long way toward making our process more data driven and more transparent to stakeholders.  

    @Lara - Would like to see vote limiting or some sort of point system for the community.  The way I see this feature, it's separate, but that idea has my vote too.  

    Thanks for the comments.  Ask a friend to vote us up.

    We came across a similar need - the use case we had was when you want to score a number of ideas with only a hand-full of users; if you have, say, 10 users and 80 ideas, it's hard to create sufficient differentiation through voting; but with the ability to let users score the idea, (say, 1-10) you could create a better differentiation;

    Yes but limit the votes. Like money if you have unlimited votes you are less discriminating. Having this is very good but each vote must "hurt" ie if I vote for this I can't vote for that!  Which makes people more discriminating

    We use ideas 100% internally and I would LOVE to score based on these things.

    Right now I don't use scoring at all but I would if this were a thing.

    This would be great if scores could be automatically derived from values submitted by customers.

    It would be a nice option and starting point as an idea is promoted to a feature.

    I'm less interested in the external aspect of ideas, more interested in using it for the internal purposes, though I am completely with you in the utility of the ideas portal in promoting transparency of the evaluation and decision-making process as it relates to bugs, features, enhancements, etc.

Feedback-based Scoring

I am looking for a way to combine Aha's strict scoring approach for ranking features with scientific methods established to measure and priorize opportunities for innovation. Both the Kano-Model and the Ulwick-Opportunity-Scoring algorithm allow (...

Make Idea Scoring Part of the Ideas Portal

We'd like our staff not only to just vote on an idea for a yes or no, but to score it. They should be able to do this in the ideas portal versus having to view the ideas in the back end of Aha. I think it would be great to be able to enable to opt...

Allow Scoring by Individual Users

I just submitted another idea requesting voting be added to the ideas portal. It's been a while since we've considered using scorecards and I forgot there is only one score for the idea, so I guess that complicates my previous request.
