An idea is not included in the dashboard. Only workflow projects in the active and completed stages and non-workflow projects that are included in the dashboard contribute to dashboard reports.
After you submit your idea, the idea is assigned to a steering committee and all of the members are notified. All ideas appear in the Ideas stage on the Workflow tab until a steering committee member approves or rejects them.
If you are a steering committee member, go to Review ideas in the hopper.
You can view and edit your idea in the web app or the desktop app.
