Overall Satisfaction with Ideanote

The intended use for Ideanote is to organize the idea collection process from a variety of sources, both across the whole organization and the general public, and allow the very process of idea collection to generate community engagement, self-awareness, and reveal key players in the creative ecosystem, both within and without our organization, among those interested in our mission. The business problems that it addresses obviously revolve around innovation management and having a platform that not only structures the creative process and collects it in one place, but provides transparency to management and the team through the analytics it generates but also incentives for participation via the potential for recognition through intelligent features like the "Hall of Fame" of idea contributors.
  • Excellent UI - clean and uncluttered. It paves your way rather than gets in your way.
  • Solid UX - each feature seem to guide but not push towards the desired outcome.
  • Versatility - the tool can be used for an endless variety of purposes.
  • Analytics - Ideanote not only helps you gather and rate ideas but it provides insight about who contribute the most in your company's creative process.
  • Ready made templates for common use cases help structure & direct the goals of your workspace quickly.
  • More videos in terms of tutorials and use cases.
  • Success stories of how companies used Ideanote to supercharge their innovation.
  • The new Zapier integration is a good step but I would like to see more native integrations with popular SaaS products.
  • Expensive - if not for finding it in an AppSumo deal it would have been hard to afford.
  • I expect increased community engagement in product development
  • Higher morale among creative contributors since their contributions are now visible to everyone
  • Decreased risk in potential adoption of new features via the ability to assess enthusiasm around specific product development ideas before rollout

Ideanote is well-suited for managing innovation across your organization and collecting ideas in one place while revealing who are the key players in the creative process. When you want more than just a digital version of a suggestion box, with the necessary functionality so that ideas are not just pieces of text but go through a maturation process in which they acquire feedback, ratings, made actionable and their completion tracked.

I'd say the scenarios where it would be less appropriate is if you want a simple and inexpensive tool to gather ideas. Ideanote forces you to add more structure than you may really need, so if you're looking for something really simple and affordable, Ideanote might be overkill.
