Home page settings - Add Idea and Idea Preview

We’ve added new settings to the Home page blocks to support Add Idea and Idea Preview directly from featured Challenges on the home page. You can add the settings to the following blocks:

  • Challenge block
  • Idea Space block – if Challenge cards are featured
  • Co-creation Community block – if Challenge cards are featured
  • Featured block – if Challenges are featured

Add Idea

By turning on the Add Idea setting for the content cards in a block, when individuals click the Add Idea button on the Home page block, the Idea form will open in preview mode rather than leaving the Home to take them to the Add Idea page.

Note: we recommend using this feature for short and simple idea forms, but to continue to use the Add Idea page when completing a more complex and detailed idea form.

Turn on Add Idea

  1. Select Edit Home Page from the Admin menu.
  2. Open the settings for an existing block that includes Challenge cards (Challenge, Idea Space, Co-creation Community or Featured Challenges) or add a new block.
  3. Open the settings for the block.
  4. Select the Add Idea icon to turn Add Ideas.
  5. Publish the changes to your home page.

Add an Idea from the home page

Once you have turned on the features for a block, when an individual clicks the Add Idea button for that block, the Idea form opens in preview mode. Once they have submitted their idea, they will remain on the Home page rather than being redirected to the Idea page.

Preview Idea

By turning on the Preview Idea setting for the content cards in a block, when individuals click the View Ideas link on the Home page block, the Idea Preview will open and they can vote and comment on the Idea. Using the Next/Preview links in the preview, they can cycle through all of the ideas in the Challenge, not just the ideas featured on the Home page, allowing them to engage more easily with the Challenge.

Turn on Idea Preview

  1. Select Edit Home Page from the Admin menu.
  2. Open the settings for an existing block that includes Challenge cards (Challenge, Idea Space, Co-creation Community or Featured Challenges) or add a new block.
  3. Open the settings for the block.
  4. Select the Idea Preview icon to turn Idea Preview.
  5. Publish the changes to your Home page.

Once you have turned on the features for a block, when an individual clicks the View Idea link for that block, the Idea opens in preview mode and they can vote and comment on the Challenge Ideas from the Home page.
