Review ideas in the hopper

If you are a member of a steering committee, you receive notifications indicating when new ideas are ready for you to review and prioritize. When at least one steering committee member approves an idea, the idea automatically moves to the hopper, where anyone on the steering committee can approve it as a project.
  1. When you receive an email notification, open the web app and click Workflow. All your notifications appear on this page.
  2. To review the idea, click the link in the notification, or use the Ready for My Review filter.
  3. To compare the idea to other ideas in the hopper, click Hopper and review the hopper chart. Depending on the number of variables your company uses to evaluate project ideas, a hopper chart can be any one of the following:
    Bubble Plot
    Compares project ideas based on three variables. In this example, effort and risk of failure are measured on a scale of 1-5 and benefit is measured by the size of the data point, or the bubble.
    Compares project ideas based on two variables. In this example, effort and risk of failure are measured on a scale of 1-5. Benefit is not a variable on the chart, so each data point is equal in size.
    Bar Chart
    Compares ideas based on a single variable. In this example, risk of failure is compared across projects and against a reference line.
  4. Below the chart, expand the idea you are reviewing to view its details, then do either of the following:
    • Start the project. For more information, go to Start a workflow project.
    • Delete the idea. The idea is moved to the trash in the project repository, where it can be restored or permanently removed.
