We've heard your feedback on the Ideas Exchange process, the need for reporting and the limitations within the system. We are actively working with Swetha Tupelly on the Product Team's commitment to the system. This blog post covers content we've discussed in calls. For CAMs and CSMs, it's important to be able to track your customer's ideas in the Ideas Exchange. Thus, here are two ways you can actively keep up with their posts.
Option One: View all ideas contributed by your customer.
2. Find your company, click the link.
3. Each idea is tagged by company, so ideally all posts should appear there.
4. Share the link.
This process shows the status, that product updates, is visible. (under construction, delivered, product team review, on the roadmap, etc.) You can also tag ideas by commenting the company name or @mentioning their customer or product. A limitation of this option is the company tagged is only associated with the author. Other community members who engage with the idea do not have their company tagged, unless you mention it in a comment.
Option Two: View all ideas a company has interacted with. (voted, commented, etc.)
1. Go to the Ideas Exchange.
2. Click on the reports tab.
3. Selected Content Creation.
4. Choose + Add Filter.
5. Where it says Filter by skill, change that to Filter by Company
6. Find your account in the list of companies.
7. Choose the date range you want.
8. Click Refresh.
9. Scroll down to the list of ideas your company has interacted with.
10. Share the ideas.
a. Select Download CSV to export the content. It shows the list, but has no links.
b. Or, copy the list from the Content Leaderboard and add them to an email, PowerPoint, or document.
Upcoming plans for ideas:
We wanted to make sure all CAMs and CSMs are comfortable running these two report types. They are useful in different situations. Option One will show where your customer's organization authored ideas. This is via tags. Hopefully that will be via customer tags. We are asking customers to tag their ideas in the content section when they submit. We are also following up and tagging ideas in the community team.
Option two provides a view of where your customers are voting, commenting, and interacting with ideas. We recommend CSMs regularly run both reports to get a sense of the customer's engagement with Ideas Exchange.
We will continue to work with product on updating ideas and in the future, we'll add additional blog posts like this.
Hi Paul Hodgson!
I'm sorry about that! You weren't in the right permission group. I went ahead and fixed it so you should be good to go! Let me know if you experience any other issues!
