2. Once an idea is selected, the moderator tool bar will appear above the idea list, the options on the toolbar will vary according to the type of challenge that you are moderating (ie a Milestone challenge will have a Milestones option)

3. When one idea has been selected, a tickbox will appear on all of the ideas on the challenge page. Add other ideas to your selection by clicking in the box on the idea. Ideas that you have selected will have a blue outline and a solid tick in the checkbox.

Good to know

When making a selection, you can select as many ideas as you'd like. if you want to choose all ideas you can click Select all on the right-hand side of the Moderator toolbar. If you'd like to start over, just click Deselect all.

When you have selected all of the ideas that you'd like to moderate, select any of the options in the moderator tool bar on the challenge page to apply the same action to all selected ideas.


Applying idea status labels

Status labels are a way to give instant feedback on a users idea and are visible to all users.

They can be used as a way of allocating points as well as used to filter ideas. For information on how to apply Status labels to multiple ideas, please see our Managing idea status labels help guide.
