2. The community discusses and votes for ideas
3. The best ideas bubble up to the top.
4. Product Management reviews the best ideas for placement on the Sphere product road map

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Allow more customization for FAF Navigation on the left side

    When addding custom links, it would be helpful to be able to move the items from section to section, not just up and down in one section.

      • Enhance the Image Library

        It would be nice if a future release of SPHERE allowed users to delete and reorder/alphabetize folders in the Image Library.

        • Allow visitors to view a list of all thon event participants rather than just being able to search for 1 individual by initial.

          Visitors to the event want to see a full listing of all participants and may end up donating to more than 1 person if they could see all the names. I like that we can click "more" in the

            • Allow us to edit the Send time on email campaigns

              Right now when you schedule a mailing, it locks in. If you want to delay it, you can't - you have to recreate it. This is laborious (especially if you have tracking set up). We should be able to alter the send time leading up to the actual send within a reasonable window. We should also have a CANCEL failsafe button.

              • Ability to merge all available fields into Advanced Confirmation emails.

                Any field use to collect data whether it's a system default or a custom field should be able to merge into Advanced Confirmation emails.

                Discount Code Field is just one example of many. Hours have been spent on workarounds for other fields like registration type.

                All so the customer has an accurate account of their transaction.

                • Default Font for all of Sphere

                  Let us default the font type in Sphere CMS. Our branding requires us to create in Arial and it is constantly defaulting to Times New Roman. Why can't we make it an option under administration as a system option.
