Today we are announcing the availability of our latest release of our IdeaJam idea management software. Version 1.8 introduces new features that will benefit companies in many ways. Here is a quick run down of what’s new and improved:

Idea Linking

IdeaJam now supports the linking of “multiple” ideas together and also allows ideas from other IdeaSpaces to be linked to one another. Previously you could only link a single idea to another idea.

The IdeaJam API

A set of 14 web services and JSON API’s (Application Programming Interfaces) that allow developers to easily interact and extend IdeaJam programmatically. More information on the IdeaJam API coming in another blog post.

Lotus Connections Business Card Integration

IdeaJam now provides Lotus Business Card integration which allows users to click on a persons name to see their Lotus Connections business card. This feature can be turned on or off by the IdeaJam Administrator.

Comment Moderation

IdeaJam participants can now modify comments that they have entered in IdeaJam. Comments can be modified within fifteen minutes after they have been entered.
  • IdeaSpace and IdeaJam Administrators can now moderate comments by either deleting or modifying them.
  • The name of the person and date the comment was deleted is displayed where the comment was removed.
  • When a comment has been modified the word “Modified” is added to the comment.
Other New Features
  • New Top Innovators iWidget for Lotus Connections.
  • New “Suggested Tags” feature makes it easy for participants to tag ideas.
  • The “What’s Hot” list of ideas can now be selectively displayed in the side bar.
