Ideas Introduction

CIVICPAGE is built for community outreach. If your plan includes the ideas module, you can set it up with just a few clicks.

Community members can submit ideas with or without a map pin associated with them. For example, an idea that said “Increase School District Funding” would not necessarily have a location associated with it. “Improve the playground at Oakland Elementary School” could, however, have a specific location shown. CIVICPAGE makes it easy to create map-based outreach programs, create custom categories and pins, and manage the ideas with a powerful administrative interface.

To use ideas, you must enable both Ideas and the Map.

Enable Ideas

First, enable ideas in the Dashboard under Settings | General.


Don’t forget to save.

This allows you to collect ideas from community members. When you visit you will see that users can now submit ideas.
