New Features: Idea Attachments, Idea-to-Ticket, & Front-End Idea Organization

It may be the holidays, but our team is still hard at work improving UserVoice for you. Here’s a few highly-requested enhancements we’ve launched for you this month.UserVoice Convert Idea to TicketIdea-to-Ticket

You may have noticed that occasionally a customer posts a support issue in your feedback forum. This isn’t ideal; as we’ve said before actual issues are best dealt with in a ticket system. Now, it’s easy for Full Service accounts to turn ideas into tickets.

  1. Open an idea in the Admin Console
  2. Click the gear icon in the upper right corner.
  3. Select “Convert to ticket”

You can find all the details about what happens to the idea (and how to undo what you’ve done) in our knowledge base.idea_with_attachmentIdea Attachments


A picture’s worth a thousand words, right? Well, you can now allow your end-users to attach files to ideas they post. This feature is off by default. To activate it:

  1. Sign in to your Admin Console
  2. From the sidebar, click Settings
  3. Below Settings, click Feedback
  4. In the “Content Filters” section, you should see the option for “Idea Attachments”
  5. Click ‘Enable’

There’s a filesize limit of 50mb.

Front-End Idea Organization Improvements

Rather than “Accepted” and “Closed” sorting options in your Feedback Forum, we now provide a dropdown so you can view ideas with any status you’d like. Bonus: if you’ve never used a status then it doesn’t even show up.

UserVoice Idea Sort

Looking at content you’ve interacted with is also a lot easier. On both your profile and via the “My feedback” dropdown, you can now filter by ideas you’ve voted on, ideas you’ve commented on, and whether they are open or closed.


We hope you enjoy these new features and we’d love to hear your feedback so we can keep making them better.

Happy holidays!
