Ideas Terminology
 The following terminology is used for Salesforce CRM Ideas:
Category, Ideas
Categories are administrator-defined values that help organize ideas into logical sub-groups within a community. The View Category drop-down list on the Ideas tab allows users tofilter ideas by category, and the
picklist on the Post Ideas page lets users addcategories to their ideas. For example, if your ideas community has the focus
Improvementsto our clothing line,
then you might set up categories such as
Each organization has one common set of categories that can be added or removed from eachcommunity. An administrator defines separate categories for their ideas and answerscommunities.
Comments are plain text responses to posted ideas that enable discussions about the ideas.On the Ideas tab, the Comments subtab lists the comments that have most recently beensubmitted. On the detail page of an idea, comments are sorted in chronological order fromoldest to newest.

Communities help organize ideas and questions into logical groups with each community having its own focus and unique ideas and questions. Professional Edition organizations canhave only one internal ideas community. All other editions can have up to 50 communitiesshared between ideas, answers, and Chatter Answers.
Community Application
 The Community application includes the ideas and answers features. The Community appis available in the Force.com app menu.
Community Expert
A community expert is a member of the community who speaks credibly and authoritatively on behalf of your organization. When a community expert posts a comment or idea, a uniqueicon () displays next to his or her name so other community members can easily identify credible information within the community. The Salesforce administrator can designate asmany community experts as necessary.
If you dislike an idea, you can click 
to subtract 10 points from its overall score anddecrease the idea's overall popularity ranking. You cannot demote the same idea more thanonce, and after you demote an idea you cannot promote it. An idea can have negative overallpoints if more users demote the idea than promote it.
 The half-life setting determines how quickly old ideas drop in ranking on the Popular Ideassubtab, to make room for ideas with more recent votes. A shorter half-life moves older ideasdown the page faster than a longer half-life. This setting affects all communities in yourorganization.
Ideas are suggestions posted by the members of an ideas community. For example, if the focusof a particular community is
Ideas for car features,
an appropriate idea for that community might have the title
Insulated cup holders that keep your beverage hot or cold.
Or, if thefocus of a particular community is
Ideas for our company's employee benefits,
an appropriateidea for that community might have the title
On-site day care.
A point is a unit of measurement that represents the popularity of an idea. Each vote for anidea is worth ten points (promote adds 10 points and demote removes 10 points). An idea'stotal number of points displays to the left of the idea.
Popular Ideas
On the Popular Ideas subtab, ideas are sorted by an internal calculation that reflects the ageof an idea's positive votes. Regardless of an idea's static total number of points, ideas withnewer positive votes display higher on the page than ideas with older positive votes. Thisallows you to browse ideas that have most recently gained popularity, with less precedencegiven to long-established ideas that were positively voted on in the past. For more information,see the terms Point and Half-life.
If your organization has a Customer Portal or partner portal, you can add the Ideas tab toeither or both portals so that portal users can participate in their own Salesforce CRM Ideas

in the online help. For more information about the partner portal, see

in the online help.
If you agree with or like an idea, click 
to add 10 points to the idea. You cannotpromote the same idea more than once and you cannot promote an idea that you have already demoted. Salesforce automatically adds your promote vote to any idea you post.
Recent Activity 
 Your Recent Activity page contains a summary of all the recent activity that relates to yourparticipation within a community. For example, this page lists all the ideas and comments you have posted to a community as well as the ideas you have voted on. You can view yourRecent Activity page by clicking your community nickname located on the right side of theIdeas tab.
An idea's status helps community members track the progress of the idea. For example,
Coming Soon
, and
Now Available
are common status values anadministrator can define and assign to ideas. An idea's status appears next to the idea's titlefor all community members to see.
 Top All Time Ideas
On the Top All-Time subtab, ideas are sorted from most number of points to fewest. Thisallows you to see the most popular ideas in the history of your Salesforce CRM Ideascommunity.
