Collecting employee ideas through campaigns

The Employee ideas app allows organizations to create and manage idea campaigns to collect employees' ideas. An idea campaign is a category for grouping ideas around common themes. Organizations can benefit from gathering the ideas of employees and grouping them into themes.

The best part of this app is that campaigns, ideas, votes, and reviews can all be managed inside Teams itself, without needing to navigate to any other applications such as browsers, email services, or others.
