Sometimes, the most powerful and insightful ideas can appear from nowhere. The smartest organisations understand that the best innovation programmes are always-on. We’re focussed on relentlessly reducing the friction between idea conception and capture – Idea Drop’s world-class mobile app experience is fundamental to achieving this.
With this in mind, and in line with our product and user-first approach to everything we do, our product and engineering teams have redesigned, rethought and improved a wide range of features and functionality across the iOS and Android mobile apps in recent months. Let’s take a look at what’s new.
Improved home feed design makes identifying content easier
Your home feed has a new look. All cards now have unique colour-coded labels to help you easily identify whether it’s a challenge, idea or a bulletin. We’ve also moved some things around to ensure the most important information is available at a glance, without expanding the card.
More intuitive idea posting drives up ideation
Posting an idea, challenge or a bulletin is now more intuitive than ever before. Tap on the plus icon in the bottom right corner of your app and choose what you want to share with your Idea Drop community.
Live search unlocks knowledge and data in seconds
The way your search results appear on the dropdown has also improved – quickly identify and separate ideas, challenges and bulletins thanks to a new unique labelling system. This puts information you are looking for directly at your fingertips and accessing it is now easier than ever before.
Get help quicker, with easier to find chat support
Chat support has a new home – it’s located on the right side menu directly underneath your notifications. Send our expert innovation and support team a message whenever you have a question or would like to share your feedback with us – we’re ready to help and support in every way we can.
More concise idea and challenge cards show you the information that matters
Expand an idea or a challenge card and immediately get a full overview of key information, as well as social interactions so far. Submit an idea to a challenge by tapping the plus sign and your idea will appear as a separate box on the expanded challenge card. Everyone can now see a quick overview of the ideas that have already been submitted to a challenge, and share your own ideas in just a few taps.
More focus on driving collaboration
You can now start typing a comment underneath an idea directly in the comment box on the bottom of the expanded idea card. This will drive deeper engagement with ideas, encourage your Idea Drop community to express their opinion and improve collaboration.
An elegant new interface for liking and rating ideas
We’ve also improved the way you can interact with ideas, to make it even more intuitive. Tap the heart icon and get a quick preview of who else have favorited an idea. We also know that the Idea Drop community love rating ideas, so we made this feature even more prominent on the card view. Check out the new, improved sliding rating bar. All this has been redesigned and improved to drive maximum engagement and encourage even more collaboration with ideas.
Frictionless login drives greater engagement
To ensure that your experience is lightweight from the outset, we’ve updated our login flow. We now start by asking your email address and then you’re guided to the next screen to type your password. Why? Because it creates a seamless login experience and you’re guided through the steps to log in. Less friction means more sign ups and greater engagement.
The Idea Drop logo has a slick new animation
And by the way, have you noticed our new and slick logo favicon whenever you open an app or filter your news feed?
We’re focussed on building the world’s leading idea management platform and we’re doing this in partnership with our community of innovative organisations everywhere. If you have feedback or suggestions on ways we can make things better, we’d love to hear from! Contact us here or chat to us in-app.
