Idea Lab is now the Idea Exchange
Starting this April, Idea Lab will move to the UserVoice platform under a new name— Idea Exchange.

Like its predecessor, Idea Exchange allows Innovative customers to submit, comment on, and vote on ideas for product enhancements while offering several improvements to enhance the user experience. Working with leadership from the Innovative Users Group (IUG), the transition to Idea Exchange will begin in March 2023.

Idea Exchange is scheduled to be available to all users on April 3, 2023.

To help answer your questions, we put together a handy FAQ, linked below. Experts from Innovative will also be on hand at IUG 2023 to answer any questions that you may have.
