The Ideas > Chart page is a visual way to prioritize features across workspaces by assigning a score based on where in the chart you drop them. This enables you to quickly identify which ideas should be promoted to features, master features, or initiatives.
Use the following links to skip ahead:
Ideas on the lefthand side of the page have not yet been prioritized. Drag them to the 2x2 matrix and drop them in the appropriate quadrant. The X and Y coordinates of the idea will become the idea's score, based on the two metrics you select as the chart's axes.
Use filters and filter dropdowns to narrow the list of un-prioritized ideas to one that's manageable for you and your team.
Score your ideas
Just like features and competitors, you can score ideas with an Aha! scorecard. The default idea scorecard measures estimated Impact against estimated Effort to give you a numerical representation of an idea's value, which allows you to prioritize it against other ideas.
Click on any of the chart fields to rename them, and click the Customize chart button to:
- Show/hide idea names
- Reverse the chart's horizontal scale
- Reverse the chart's vertical
Once you drop an idea onto the chart, that idea will receive an Aha! idea score. Click on the idea to open the idea detail drawer and see its score. You can sort the Ideas > List view by score to see your highest value ideas and promote the ones you intend to implement. You can also filter the Ideas > List view by individual scorecard metrics to bring a deeper level of analysis to your prioritization discussion.
Note that if your ideas and features use the same scorecard in their record layouts, then you can carry over the idea's score when you promote it to another record type. This is also true for custom idea fields.
Share your ideas chart
With your ideas chart completed, you can easily share it with your stakeholders by selecting one of the export options under the More options button on the top right of the screen.
- To fold your chart into a presentation, select Add to presentation. In your presentation you can select the chart's update frequency.
- To invite people outside of your Aha! account to view your chart, select Share as webpage.
- For a static version of your chart, select Save as image or Save as PDF.
To save the view for future working session, click the Views dropdown on the top right of the page and select Save view. When saving the view, you can name the view and define access rights, where it should be saved, and if others can edit the view. You can reference previously saved charts by clicking Views and selecting Saved views.
