Idea Stages are an important concept in HunchBuzz, they are custom defined stages that represent the horizontal movement of ideas through your business process flow. You create the stages, and until now ideas progressed through these stages by an admin explicitly moving them.
Now you can define Challenge Rules to set a criteria and threshold for ideas to move stages and the HunchBuzz Bot will automatically initiate the move. Here's some examples:
- If an idea gets more than 50 votes in the "New Idea" stage move it automatically to the "Under Consideration" stage to bring it to the attention of admins.
- If an idea is receiving a lot of attention move the idea to a special stage when the comment count exceeds 80.
- If the number of reviews exceeds 10 then raise attention by moving to a "Discover" stage.
Challenge rules are defined per challenge and you can create multiple rules per challenge. Look for the "Rules" button on the Admin->Challenges page:
