Anyone with an Idea Spotlight account can grant one or more System Administrators permission to publish Challenges or ideas on their behalf. With this new feature, System Administrators can create a challenge, share the challenge and enter idea updates all in the name of a senior member of the organisation.
To add delegates click on the profile symbol in the top right of the Idea Spotlight page then select Profile. The person 'plus' icon appears to the right of the account holder's name. Delegates can be added here by clicking on the icon and entering in the required name.
