Default NEW: Ideas.Interspire.com - Interspire Ideas Lab

Hi everyone. As many of our existing customers know, we take feature requests and feedback and use them to shape the future releases of our products. In general, around 80% of the features included in a major upgrade to a product have come directly from customers. The others come from our research.

Today we've launched http://ideas.interspire.com where anyone can post an idea or feature request for any of our products. You can also view existing ideas (which we've added to get the ball rolling), vote on them and leave comments.

We already have quite an open dialogue with thousands of customers via the phone, email and forum, but ideas.interspire.com will be the one central place where you can "officially" log your feedback for everyone - both us and our customers and website visitors to see.

The features you request and vote on will be used as the basis of future releases of all of our products, and even the direction we travel in as a company, so feel free to contribute - we really want to hear what's on your mind.

Thumbs up Brilliant!

Another example of listening to the customer - not only have you taken on-board our requirements for having the feature/wants/requirements discussion in one place, you have adopted an excellent platform to do it on.

Great news...

Yeah, the ideas forum software is pretty cool. I like the idea of limiting votes for each account. How does that work BTW. Do we get votes back after a period of time? It does however look very easy to simply create unlimited accounts to continually vote and skew the result. Hope that doesn't happen.

Don't even need to set up accounts - you can use anonymous voting

Would it be a good idea to switch the anonymous voting off? Its an open opportunity for abuse where people can 'big up' there own ideas thus skewing it's popularity.

Default perfect product variations

when you edit a product with variations, next to each product there should be pricing options, such as cost, sale, retail, etc. this is necessary because the price of each variation may be different. this will give the ability to control variation pricing.
Currently, if you set a sale price in the products pricing when entering a new product, and you apply variations, then on that products page, when you click on each variation, the price changes, but the "You Save" amount stays the same.

Default Ability to add % discounts in pricing options

When creating a new product, under more pricing options, there needs to be an option for setting a % discount and not just a fixed sale price.

Wow, this must be the best move ever by a software production company. Love it. This is what sets you guys apart from the rest of the crowd, the ability to rethink the current concepts of how things are done.

Now I just need to save up enough to buy the pro version, soon soon.
