Idea Lightbox


The Idea Lightbox in Planview IdeaPlace provides a summary as well as single-click access to the full idea.  In certain instances, the Idea Lightbox remains in place. This is currently limited to accessing ideas from App Home, Comparable Ideas, My Profile – Activity, IdeaList, and Trending. In these scenarios, the Idea Lightbox will display the new Follow icon and also the new ability to Share the idea directly from the Lightbox.

Adding Share to this component removed two additional clicks for users. As we move forward, this will also be added to the Quick View component too.

The Share action is identical to the functionality that is present on the View Idea page. 



The lightbox click counts as a "read" idea for the purposes of filtering “Ideas I have not viewed.”

The IdeaID is displayed on both the Idea Lightbox and ViewIdea page within the Statistics section.
