How to: Submit product feature requests with Ideaspace

Overview manages feature requests for Agility, Application Security, Continuous Testing, Release & Deploy, and TeamForge using public Ideaspaces, where you submit ideas, needs, and desired features. You can also track your ideas, upvote existing ideas, and interact with the product team and other customers. 

Ideas or feature requests are needs or desires for functionality not currently existing in the product. For example, usability improvements to make it easier to complete a frequent, time-consuming task.

Ideas are not meant for reporting software bugs or functionality that is not working as intended. These kinds of issues should be submitted as Support Requests.

Ideaspace currently uses a separate account from your Identity. You can register the first time you want to submit an idea.

Troubleshooting tips

  1. Can I edit an idea after I submit it to Ideaspace?
    • You may edit it for 20 minutes after submission. After 20 minutes, you cannot edit the text or remove the Idea. It can, however, be hidden by an Ideaspace admin.
  2. I created an idea, but it didn't appear in the Ideaspace?
    • The Ideaspace product team reviews each new idea. It takes one to three business days to be confirmed and appear in the Ideaspace.

What happens next?

  1. Ideas are reviewed by the product teams weekly, and an initial response will be provided. It could be asking for clarification questions, providing the timeline, asking for participation in Discovery sessions, etc.
  2. The ideas which receive broad support in interest and votes will be evaluated first for development work
  3. When an idea is picked for an upcoming product release, we will update the Idea comment thread
