What is an Anonymous Idea?

Jakob Storjohann Updated by Jakob Storjohann

In Ideanote you might be able to submit an idea under your own name or anonymously. What kind of ideas you can submit is managed by the person who has set up the idea collection. Depending on the settings you might be able to change the level of anonymity by editing your idea at a later point.

Here is an explanation of how the three different types work


In this case you will see your name and your profile picture when submitting. That means you and others will be able to see your name on the idea and it will show up in your profile, visible to others.

Partly Anonymous

In this case you will see an illustration of a face with questionmark and the explanation "Identity is visible to editors". That means that the people who can edit the idea collection can see your name but it will not be visible to other people on the platform.

Fully Anonymous

In this case you will see an illustration of ghost and the explanation "Identity is hidden". That means no-one else can see who submitted the idea, not even admins or workspace owners.

Can other people see anonymous ideas listed on my profile?
You might see your own ideas, even the anonymous ones, listed on your profile. Don't worry, they are only visible to you and, depending on the level of anonymity, people with editing right to the idea collection.
What about comments?
If you comment on an idea that you created that is anonymous that comment will by default also be anonymous to protect your identity.
What about data exports, notifications and integrations?
The identity fully anonymous ideas are not revealed in data exports, notifications and integrations.
What about insights and statistics?
The identity fully anonymous ideas are not revealed in statistics.
Is anonymity revealed under any circumstance?
Under limited circumstances, Workspace Owners may contact Ideanote and apply to export content from all idea collections and conversations, including anonymous ideas and direct messages. We will reject applications unless Workspace Owners show in each instance (a) valid legal process, or (b) consent of members, or (c) a requirement or right under applicable laws in order to export data.
