While on tech support at Ideate Inc., I often hear people articulating a new function or feature for an Autodesk product. These suggestions spawn from frustration and inspiration alike. They often come in the form of “I wish the software worked like this.” It turns out there is a place to voice these ideas. It is called the Ideas Page.

The Ideas Page is a part of the knowledge network and is a great place to communicate concerns as well as pitch ideas. If you have an idea, you can check out the site to see if it’s already been submitted. If it has, you can endorse the idea by liking it. The more endorsements an idea gets, the higher the likelihood it will be incorporated into a future release of the product. Occasionally, someone will comment on a post giving work-arounds for the current release.

Check out the Ideas Page. It is one of the ways Autodesk allows customers to give feedback. If you ever have an idea for a feature or function with in a program, I recommend posting it to the Autodesk Ideas Page.

Thank you for reading. For more information on the software solutions, training and consulting Ideate provides, please visit the Ideate Inc. homepage.
