When reviewing an Idea Submission, Qlik assesses Qlik Community interest, potential value for customers and partners, and the strategic fit within Qlik’s product portfolio.

Before submitting an idea, check out the Ideation app on the Browse and Suggest page to see if there is an existing idea.  If there is an existing idea, add your support by “voting” it. If there is not an existing idea, click on the “Suggest Features” card on the top of the page. This will open up the Ideation portal, where you can start typing your idea. You will be recommended with similar ideas, to again check if your idea already exists. If there are no similar ideas, fill out your description and additional information, upload files, and choose the relevant product label. 

Please review these submission guidelines prior to submitting your idea, to ensure that your idea meets the requirements.

NOTE:  The Ideas board is not a place to post bugs or support issues. Contact Qlik Support ( or post in appropriate Community boards if you have an issue with Qlik software. All bug and support issues reported in the Ideas board will be declined.

Hi @Meghann_MacDonald ,

I submitted an idea this morning on the ideation portal but I am not able to login into the portal now nor can I see the submitted idea.


Hi @Neha121 , if nothing happens when you click that, you likely have a pop-up blocker on. Check your browser bar to allow pop-ups from the site if they are blocked. I can troubleshoot with you if you don't see that.

@Congrid , please try to visit while logged in and click "Suggest features" in the top left and ensure pop-up blockers are off. If that does not log you in, please send me a message.

Ok, now I know the guide lines but WHERE can I submit an idea?


Hi @jlolling , please visit Ideation > Browse and Suggest under the Support tab, or click this link: 

That will take you to the browse and suggest page. To submit an idea or access the portal, scroll to the top of that page and click "Suggest Features" or "Open Portal". Please let me know if that helps and if you have any other issues!

Also, check out the About Ideation page, which includes information about the guidelines, how to access, review process, and troubleshooting.
