@Scott Molinari - we'll drop an update in the IdeaExchange Reimagined Chatter group (https://sfdc.co/IDXrGroup), but in short, the team is building the new functionality to support the Prioritization concept that we've been manually piloting. We'll have one more round of manual Prioritization this Fall before debuting the new part of the IdeaExchange at Dreamforce.
Related to prioritizing the roadmap for Spring '20 and beyond (the Prioritization from May 2019) - the product teams are wrapping up release planning, so in late August we should be able to share which prioritized ideas are moving into the development phase.
While we're out on the road at community events and engaging with folks online, we're seeking more feedback on pain points with the current voting part of the IdeaExchange (i.e., notifications, lack of threaded comments, simplified/more meaningful statuses for ideas, etc.), as the team will be working on that shortly. We'll start dropping some polls / questions and proposals in the Chatter group - or find us at one of the six upcoming events in August to discuss more (see my recent post in the group https://sfdc.co/IDXrGroup). The community has been super helpful in shaping the new Prioritization program/functionality, so we're eager to dive into discussions on the voting piece and other related things such as Known Issues.

Yes I agree , this is definately needed. Last week i was looking at this idea
and i saw that it has been 2 years and there is no update on this from Salesforce , atleast it should give some status update , it would be okay if they are planning / not planning to implement the idea. But hanging idea in the middle is certainly not the good thought.
Hi all - since our last round of piloting the IdeaExchange Prioritization concept in January, we've received a lot of great feedback from the community on the exercise. We're excited to get to pilot another round with you to prioritize features for Spring '20 and beyond. Access the latest prioritization survey between May 20 and June 2 and learn about what we've changed in this round in my post in the IdeaExchange Reimagined Chatter group: https://sfdc.co/PrioritizeIdeas

Well done @SteveMo, truly a giant among Trailblazers, and to all the other hard-grafters out there pushing this idea over the line.
Learnt about the changes after a webinar earlier in the year and managed to get my votes in, but had been out of the SF loop for 9 months before that so have only just read this thread, seen the DF video etc. and thus realised the magnitude of what you are all achieving together.
I am back in the Community full-time now (albeit under a different username since my previous Company politely declined me access to my old account, spoilsports), so have joined the relevant groups to do my part in making a success of this much needed paradigm shift.
I must say I did miss the SF community whilst I was away... :-)
Our road to reimagining the IdeaExchange continues with another pilot round of prioritizing our product roadmap. At Dreamforce, we gave those of you in the True to the Core session a chance to prioritize features for Summer '19. With this planning cycle, we're asking all of our community to spend a few minutes in the next two weeks (Jan. 21 - Feb. 3) to prioritize features for Winter '20 and beyond.

The hits just keep on coming! The latest song:
Subject: ATTENTION: Turn on Lightning Experience Critical Update Coming in 2019
As a Salesforce admin, we are notifying you we will turn on Lightning Experience for your org in 2019. Lightning Experience is the new and enhanced Salesforce user experience.
...the rest of which is this:
The efforts have gone from wooing admins to coercing users (forcing both is any day now, I imagine?), so maybe a lot more work on this first:
...and less effort twisting arms that would willingly go, if only Salesforce had listened in the decade prior and can prioritize customer needs before pulling stunts like this? Moving to Lightning is not a "critical update" and "Classic reimagined" is a euphemism for how little Salesforce cared, if not cares, about existing customers vs. growth at any cost.
So many ideas ignored for so utterly long during Classic; so many newer ones already years old for Lightning. Now, before they even have a real, working, Idea Exchange and as they only start to take it seriously, this is what gets delivered as "critical"?
Ugh. Clearly, very little has changed at Salesforce, but I just added a new Permission Set...

I simply clicked a link (or links) in email to an(y) idea(s) and while all the rest looked normal, this immediate idea looked different and my avatar had no name, but showed me with that weird serial # string that was a link that took me to a page that showed my recent posts. Not everyone's name had a serial # string instead but everyone listed had a link (see the bottom of that screenshot - I can see it a bit better if I zoom my browser window view) that took me to their last handful of comments, just like my own. While I have not seen an idea present with that UI again since, the profile from same still loads if you click my string/serial sign-off to the report and again in my recent reply to Brad Mampe. Let me know if you prefer me to email that screenshot or of the current view when I click my profile string.
It was only happening to this idea and then within 24 hours, give or take, it was back to this current normal/old view.
I wish I could tell you why just this idea or how else I came across it, but it was nothing out of the ordinary of what I usually do when reviewing the emails of comments from various ideas - I tend to log in using the "Upvote" button as a quick clickable default if I'm not already logged-in. Perhaps logging-in at that particular time was the trigger? I've logged-in plenty since then, but have not seen that UI on this or any other idea except that one on/at that particular day/time.
@matthew kozak - it's really hard to see the screenshot you attached to your post about a different UI experience, but it looks like you accidentally slipped into the backend view (i.e. what Ideas looks like in the org that supports IDX). Can you send me reproduction steps? It's a bug not an intentional UI change.
First, thank you for your feedback throughout 2018 on how we can create a more transparent and actionable IdeaExchange experience. The IdeaExchange was born out of the recognition that our products become stronger and more valuable to you when you help shape them. The new IdeaExchange will be no exception. So far you've helped us:
1. Identify the challenges with the current IdeaExchange and how it hasn't scaled with the growth of our products and community.
2. Test out a new concept during Dreamforce in the True to the Core session, where you provided direction to our product managers on what features should be prioritized in upcoming product releases.
3. Refine our initial design concepts for the new IdeaExchange and product planning process.
We have a lot of work we're excited about in 2019, but we can't do it without you. We'll continue to need you to test out concepts and help us build the new IdeaExchange together. To support this, we've launched two new resources:
1. An overview of the IdeaExchange Reimagined effort, including a recording of the True to the Core '18 session keynote.
2. A Trailblazer Community group, IdeaExchange Reimagined. Here, we'll share program and IDXr roadshow info, provide a space to continue the dialogue, and solicit your participation in upcoming product planning windows. Please join the group to receive the latest updates.
The IdeaExchange team and I look forward to working with you online and in person throughout 2019 to build a new IdeaExchange experience for us of all to debut together at Dreamforce '19. Let's do this!
Thanks Matthew. I personally feel much better now. I've become a member of the Idea Exchange Community Group and am following RoadtoIDXr. I just watched the Dreamforce video about the New IDX process and the bit about putting "community planning" at the front of the product planning, development and release is great. Looking forward to this now!
I hope we can "spend" multiple votes on one idea too!
