The process of idea stimulation starts by posting a new idea and describing exactly what it is you want to generate new ideas about. You can add video to demonstrate your idea and also set goals of how many approvals need to be reached.

While posting new ideas user should try to capture the true essence of what they are looking for in as few words as possible. A vague description will usually yield equally vague results.

Collaborating on Posted Ideas

Users participating in the system can respond to the idea posted, add comments and also vote. Looking at all ideas posted under a specific category can shows which ideas gained more approvals and responses and which did not pick up.

This is a useful aid when trying to brainstorm and facilitate new ideas and creativity within a group of people, students or within a workplace.

Administrators can moderate new ideas posted and also responses for each idea. Administrators can also define who can post new ideas and who can respond to ideas posted. Access restrictions can also be set to define who can view the content related to the idea.
