Community Tip: 5 Tips for Submitting or Commenting on An Idea

One of the popular features of The Esri Community is the ArcGIS Ideas place. ArcGIS Ideas is where you have an opportunity to suggest enhancements or innovations for Esri products. Here are some things to keep in mind when submitting an idea: 

  1. Be Detailed: Explain your workflow, process, and the products you’re using.  If you can record or document the steps you’ve taken that led you to the idea and the outcome you’re seeking, it can help people understand your idea more clearly.

  2. Use Visuals: Add an image, .gif, or video demonstrating where you think the improvement could be made: A picture is worth a thousand words!

  3. Give Context: Identify what industry you work in and what sparked this idea in your workflow or process to execute a task.  

  4. Add Impact:  If your idea were to be implemented, how impactful would it be? Would you save money, time, or other resources by having your idea implemented? Add a little impact statement to your idea.

  5. Apply A Category: Add a Category so that the right team sees your idea. An idea with no Category can get missed when teams review ideas, and an idea given too many categories becomes less focused and effective.

 

Comments are helpful additions to Ideas. If someone posted your idea already, be sure to comment with the same tips in mind after you vote on the idea.  For more information on Submitting Ideas, see the “Using Ideas” section from our GeoNet Resource Hub
