Setting Up Predictions in a Challenge


When you include predictions in a challenge, members will be invited to provide prediction votes on posted ideas. Once the Predictions phase begins, the prediction tab allows members to provide assessments for all submitted ideas in the graduation stage, based on the criteria you selected (time to implement, cost of implementation, and/or anticipated yearly revenue).

How it Works

You must be logged in as a Site Administrator to set up Predictions in a Challenge.
