View ideas

CA Agile Central Ideas provides many ways to view ideas:

Status values

As is common with software, plans can change and our commitment to you is to be transparent about our plans by keeping idea statuses up-to-date. Status values include the following:

  • New: Just posted
  • Under Review: We are reviewing the idea
  • Coming Soon: We plan to implement the idea in the next three months
  • Already Available: A solution to that idea is currently offered
  • Planned: We plan to implement the idea in the next six months
  • Not Planned: Currently not planned on our current six-month roadmap
  • Released in <release>: Delivered in the current CA Agile Central release; On-Premises customers will receive these in their next release
  • Released: Has been released in a prior release
  • Recently released: This idea has been released within the last three months
  • Need Input: Needs more feedback from the community or more clarification in order for the product team to decide how to move forward
  • Archived: This idea has not seen more than ten total votes in the past 365 days, and has been archived

Note: Archived ideas will not display in search and browse results. If an idea is archived and you would like it to be considered for development, post a new copy of the idea for voting.

End users or idea submitters cannot edit an idea once it has been posted. If you have a significant change to make, contact and request an update.

Follow the leaderboard

Use the leaderboard to track which users have the most popular ideas. Click on a user's name to view the ideas they have posted, commented on, and subscribed to. Points on the leaderboard are determined by the number of ideas you post, promote, or demote, the number of users that promote your idea, and the number of other ideas you comment on. Point values are set up by administrators.
