There is a 'dirty secret' in this whole area of end-to-end innovation/idea management: ideas do NOT become projects. There is a lot of morphing that takes place, even of the best ideas (most ideas are really idea 'fragments'), so that in practice the top ideas are basically edited, repackaged and resubmitted into different systems. And while we are on the topic of dirty secrets... if you come from the world of product development, not all the best ideas and innovations revolve around 'products'. Many involve strategy, packaging, pricing, channel strategy and other aspects -- none of which are usually covered in a typical PLM (product lifecycle management) or stage-gate product development system. So that means that many of the top concepts -- the ones that in the end make the money -- are basically unmanaged. IdeaScale can play a great role in creating an innovation idea management pipeline for any sized organization on any sort of stage.

Another way to navigate your ideas is with tags. Tagging ideas lets the end user segment and associate the ideas into relevant groups. Tags can be very easily edited by the Moderator.
Your community can integrate directly with your Twitter account to automatically tweet out new ideas as they?re posted to your community. This is a great way to reach out to a wider group of members and increase your audience.
Idea ownership allows community members to volunteer to implement ideas. Ideas that members are passionate about can be handed off to the authors that have the power to see them through. They make notes and become solely responsible for moving the idea through the lifecycle to completion.
