Rally Idea Manager was released a year ago to help product managers effectively prioritize their product backlogs by increasing the understanding of users’ needs. Powered by our partner Brightidea, the leader in ideation and innovation systems, Rally Idea Manager is honed for product marketers and product managers working with Agile teams.
With a year behind the Idea Manager, the improved version comes with following features including integration of idea manager with Rally Stories for the first anniversary.
- A user reputation system and leaderboard: to monitor and incentivize user participation in the community
- Customizable idea tabs: for users to easily locate their favorite ideas and for product managers to highlight special features in this week’s discussions
- Improved search: to minimize the creation of duplicate ideas
- Rally integration enhancements: to link new ideas to existing Rally stories and update idea statuses based on any Rally story states
- Better idea status change notifications: to keep users informed of specific status changes
- A “idea interest report by company” report: to better understand the specific needs of a given customer
