Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get access to the Ideas Forum?

Simply contact your Account Manager and request an invitation then follow the account creation process within the email and start contributing!

Does this mean you’ll only work on ideas that get votes?

No... all ideas will be considered at the product analysis phase before we plan any development. 

I have an idea that is unique to my organisation, should I submit that?

You’re welcome to submit any product ideas, however bespoke work is still available via KxSupport and may be a more suitable solution for things like custom reports.

I’m having trouble logging in, who do I contact?

Simply log an “Ideas Forum” request on KxSupport and a member of the Products Team will be in touch.
