Gallery Settings - Configuring Idea Submission for Gallery

The Gallery Idea Submission feature allows Gallery users to easily submit ideas for content from the Gallery. This gives users a structured way to submit ideas for needed content based on their observations. They can be confident that their idea is going directly to the people responsible for planning, creating and distributing their content. This feature gives Gallery users and Studio users a way to communicate.

Note: Users must have a Kapost login/membership to access this feature. For instructions on how a user would submit an idea click here.

Quick Submission vs. Crowdsource Form/Content Type

There are two types of idea settings - Quick Submission and Crowdsource Form/Content Type. 

  • Quick Submission Idea Settings: When a user clicks Add New Idea, they will be brought to a pop up window to add the topic and idea description. Once submitted, that idea will flow directly into the Kapost Studio idea catalog where it can be rejected or approved and turned into a content asset that can be added to the Gallery. 
  • Crowdsource Form/Content Type Idea Settings: When a user clicks Add New Idea, they will be brought to the Content Type/Crowdsource Form you have configured for them. That idea will flow directly into the Kapost Studio idea catalog where it can be rejected or approved and turned into a content asset that can be added to the Gallery.  Instructions for configuring Crowdsource Form/Content Type Idea Submission are above.
