If you wish to use Recommendations on your Idea Spotlight, please contact to have the feature enabled before configuring the settings below as they will not be visible.

Configuring Recommendations

You can configure Recommendations settings at a Site, Community and Challenge level:

Idea Spaces/ Co-Creation Communities - For a new Community, navigate to Settings > Add Idea Space/ Co-creation Community, the Recommendations settings are at the bottom of the page. For existing Communities, navigate to the Community page > Manage > Edit, the Recommendations settings are at the bottom of the page.

Recommendations Settings

There are 3 settings that you need to set, please see below for further detail:

Idea Recommendation Similarity Threshold - set between 0 and 100, the threshold is the minimum similarity required, for ideas to be recommended. The higher the value, the less results you should expect. We recommend 25-30.

Maximum number of Idea Recommendations - the maximum number of recommendations that are shown for any idea. These recommendations must have similarity above the threshold you set, therefore you will not always see the maximum number of results.

Include Archived? - Decide whether you want archived ideas to be included in recommendations.
