How IdeaJam works
Let's take a quick look at how IdeaJam works:
"IdeaSpaces" or "Themes" are used in IdeaJam to group similar
ideas together. For example "Employee Benefits" is
an IdeaSpace that will contain all ideas related to
employee benefits programs while the "Sales
Compensation" IdeaSpace has ideas related to
improving a companies sales compensation program.
IdeaSpaces are managed by a designated person or
group of people.
A user clicks on the "Post my Idea" button and
enters their idea. They select an "IdeaSpace", a
title, the idea itself, enter tags, upload a
file attachment(s) and then save.
Other users can provide feedback on the new idea
by entering a comment and, can also show their
support for the idea by either promoting or
demoting it. They could also click "No Opinion"
which registers that they don't care one way or
the other about this idea.
Ideas can be filtered in several ways. IdeaJam
shows recent ideas, popular ideas that have the
most comments, ideas that have been completed,
ideas that have been rejected, ideas that are in
progress, ideas that have been withdrawn as well
as a view that shows all of the comments posted.
Each of these views can be displayed for an
individual IdeaSpace or for all IdeaSpaces.
Statistics are available and show the overall
activity in an IdeaJam.
A search facility is also part of IdeaJam and
can be used to search IdeaJam for words and
phrases. Results can then be exported to
Microsoft Excel, a CSV or an XML file.
Users can also search IdeaJam using it's easy to
use tagging system. Simply go to the Tags page
and click on a tag to see which ideas are tagged
with a given tag.
