Ideation Guidelines: Getting Started with Ideation
What is the Ideas board?
The Ideas board is a feedback forum for you, our Qlik Community, to help make Qlik products better for everyone. Your ideas help shape the product roadmap and are an important part of Qlik’s product planning and prioritization process.
Do I need to log into Qlik Community to use the Ideas board?
Anyone can view ideas without logging in to Qlik Community. However, only Qlik customers, partners, Luminaries and employees may contribute.
See this post for help logging into Qlik Community. If you do not have a Qlik Community account, be sure use your company email address when registering. Personal email address should not be used as they will prevent you from being recognized as a Qlik customer or partner.
What makes a good contributor to the Ideas board?
We love the enthusiasm and passion of Qlik Community members. To ensure that same energy within the Ideas board, we have established a few rules of engagement:
Do not spam: Do not post advertisements or blatant promotions of other products and services.
Do not share sensitive information: The Ideas board is not a place to share your company's, or any third party's, confidential or proprietary information.
Be respectful: Always be courteous to other Qlik Community users. Avoid offensive or abusive language and materials.
Get engaged! As we work to grow Ideation and implement more communication, we hope to find our users active and ready to give feedback. Please check out the upcoming community roadmap sessions, blog posts, and available technical previews to find new ways to get involved.
Before submitting an idea, do a search. If there is an existing idea, add your support by “liking” it and/or adding a comment. If there is not an existing idea, click on the “Suggest an idea” button. Please review the Submitting an Idea post for more details.
Our newUnified Search Capability provides a better experience for this - you can now search the entire community and see any relevant ideas, support questions, AND posts about that topic.
How do I support an Idea?
Ideas bubble to the top with additional “likes” and “comments”. You can show your support for an idea by being part of the conversation (comments) and voting for (“liking”) the idea.
What is the difference between "Top Ideas" and "Hot Ideas"?
Top ideas are based on all time number of "likes". Hot ideas are based on an algorithm built into the Community platform that is a combination of popularity and recency.
Popularity is based on:
Participation - how fast are comments being accumulated in the thread and the unique participants
Consumption - how frequently is the thread being viewed and/or liked
Recency is based on:
Time of last comment - this is the post time of the last comment in the thread.
Thread lifespan - this is the length of time between the first and last comments in the thread; longer lifespans relate to higher scores
Participation - same as in popularity; used here to keep ideas with long lifespans and low participation rates in check
