IdeaJam product ready

Well things have been quiet on the IdeaJam development front for the last couple of months. The reason is that we've been working to get the saleable version of IdeaJam ready to go. We have just about reached that point now. Over the next week or two we'll be upgrading the current site to use the new design which adds a whole load of new features. If you're interested, or know someone who's interested, in running IdeaJam within their company then please do contact myself or Bruce. We have set up a page for you to register interest and we'll get back to you with details of the application that will make Idea management in your organisation a lot easier.

Once we've updated the live site we'll be discussing on the IdeaJam blog some of the new features that maybe aren't so visible for the user, but make managing the application a doddle (in the last couple of weeks we've got the setup time for a new IdeaJam down to 30 minutes, start to finish!).

Idea Jam Blog

I know I've been posting little else than Idea Jam content here recently. Well Bruce and Declan have set up an Idea Jam blog for us to post all news there. It does mean that there'll be even less posted here for the moment, but hopefully my workload will get under control over Christmas and I'll get back to some semblance of normality.

Until then, keep your ideas coming, we are working on bug fixes, features and the Idea Jam product over the next few weeks.

Idea Jam Blog Sidebar Widget

You may have noticed on my blog that I've had a sidebar widget showing recent ideas from the Idea Jam on and off for the last couple of months. Well Bruce has cast his UI design spells over it now and boy does it look a lot better.

So if you want to add it to your blog you can head over to Bruce's blog to get instructions (at least until we have a page on the Idea Jam site itself).

Latest Version of Idea Jam released

Well we're getting close to the official release date of 20th November so this weekend we've released the latest round of changes and bug fixes to the Idea Jam. Hopefully you can see that your feedback is showing up in the changes, with new features like the ability to express no opinion from views, changing date formats to dd-mmm-yyyy, making it clearer that you've just voted on an idea and so on. Hopefully this week we are just going to deal with bug fixes, then have a period of stability on the live site before pushing on with 1.1 change requests.

The content on the site is continuing to be of a high quality, I was going through some of my Unvoted list this morning and really enjoyed some of the great ideas that people have submitted over the last couple of weeks.
