Going through and updating status of closed ideas according to our new way of working. New process works as follows:

1. When you post a new idea that we consider valid, we will label it 'Open to vote for', so that it can be shared with other users and start gathering votes
2. Ideas that are support-related, already exist in some manner or non-implemented ideas that are older than a year and that have not gathered enough votes will be Archived.
3. We keep some older ideas that we think are in line with something we are planning otherwise or that have gathered enough votes.
4. If there are duplication of ideas, we may archive one of them and keep another which can continue to gather votes.
5. Ideas that we are planning to implement will be moved into the category 'Accepted'

I really don't agree with you. In my opinion Extended is used to create a master planning and project place is used to breakdown this master planning.

For example: the master planning consists of activity 1, activity 2 and activity 3. In project place the activities are divided in activity 1.1, 1.2, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 and 3.1, 3.2, etc.

There is imho absolutely no need to do this breakdown in extended because it doesn't necessarily increase the scope. It just a breakdown!

In my company only the master planning needs approval, not the breakdown in smaller parts. Why should I do the breakdown in extended (much more difficult) then?

Maybe the solution is to have an extra option in Blue Ant, available to the project administrator and/or the one who approves projects and plans.

Allowed to add activities in Projectplace without changing the plan in Extended:

  • Yes
  • No

That gives the users the ability and flexibility to choose for themselves. So not everybody should be able to make this choice, only the one who does the approval for a plan.
