Idea Box



Idea Box is now FULLY responsive.

Idea Box is the module which empowers your members to have their best ideas shared site-wide. Whenever your members have any ideas that flash through their mind, they can write them down via Idea Box and thanks to voting system, Idea Box will bring big thoughts together.

Using Idea Box, your members can ask the others to brainstorm with them if they need ideas to do something by creating Trophies. In addition, they can also assign other members to be their Trophies’ judges as well as nominate already-made ideas to be the nominees. Via voting system, each idea will be given an average point by judges. Basing on these average points, Trophies creators will find out the best idea that they need.

Ideas are answers for Trophies. When your members see Trophies and have ideas to contribute to, they will create Idea to compete in these Trophies. Via Idea, they will give out detailed information of their thoughts, self-evaluate the feasibility as well as estimate the cost to make their thoughts come true.

With the above features, we consider this module a definite must for Enterprise Social Network.
