How to Manage Ideas on Leanbe

Ideas are a great way to get in touch with your team members and users so they can share their thoughts about the product by adding appropriate ideas or upvoting them. Ideas can be shown on the portal and widget.

Ideas section consists of New Requests and Ideas subsections. Let's check each subsection one by one.

New requests

Requests get collected via different channels (Slack, Intercom, HubSpot), Portal and Chrome extension. 

Once collected you can either ignore the request to be saved on the archive or else attach it to an existing idea.
