Adding an Idea Stage

You add new stages through the admin console. After you add the stage, you can configure it as described in Managing Idea Stages.

Fastpath: Admin Console: Ideas > Idea Settings > Add Stage
To add a new stage:

    • Stage Name -- Enter the text that should appear in the dropdown where an administrator assigns the stage.
    • Background Color -- Click Select color to choose a color for the box that surrounds the stage's name in content lists.
    • Text Color -- Click Select color to choose a color for the stage name's text.
  2. Click Save.

    The Sample Text value shows what the stage name will look like in the community.
