This solution is designed to automate an idea submissions process in which users are allowed to post ideas and get review updates on their ideas. Privacy is fully enforced in that idea posters cannot view ideas submitted by others, just their own. The type of user roles and activities they can perform on the system are as follows.
|Idea Submitters||Innovation Team||Moderator|
|These could be partners or customers for external, or employees for internal deployment. Idea submitters can post ideas in one of the pre-defined categories and view their submissions but not others. Once submitted, ideas cannot be changed by the submitter.||Innovation team members have privileges as "power users" to view all submitted ideas, post comments, and vote on ideas. Power users are not allowed to submit ideas. Some members can be designated as reviewers, allowing them to post reviews on ideas.||Moderators are users with full visibility to the site. Typically an innovation team member assumes moderator responsibilities to customize idea submission page, enable categories, category reviews & subscriptions, and to monitor user activity and generate reports.|
