Ideas notifications are messages you can enable and personalise, sent to ideas administrators and submitters. These notifications are helpful in maintaining engagement in the idea-gathering process and ensuring effective communication between admins, submitters, and users viewing those suggestions.
By enabling Ideas Notifications, you can ensure that you review suggestions promptly, submitters are informed about the progress of their submissions, and discussions around those submissions happen in a timely manner.
