How are you rewarding members that Vote on Ideas?

Hi Vanilla Community!

Looking for some creative solutions here… how do you reward your members when they Vote on or create new Ideas?

In our Community we use the Up Vote buttons on regular discussion/question posts as well, which means there's no easy way to see in our metrics who has voted specifically on Idea type of posts (as you can't filter Reactions by Category).

We'd love to be able to give Badges to users to create ideas, but even more so, we want to reward users who VOTE on those ideas (since they're not creating duplicate ideas). For reference… we already have over 2,000 idea posts. 😅

There's an enhancement request for this type of badge to be automatic (vote here!) but I'd love to know if anyone is already using other methods to reward Idea behaviour.

Leaderboard for that category? Manually awarding badges? (If so, to whom?) Anything else creative?

    Would a member spotlight work?

    Hmm - that's only highlighting one member and we'd like to reward as many as possible (all voters) which would be at least 50 per week.

    Hi @Genevieve P - thanks for your question!

    Just to clarify, does using the Category filter on your ideation analytics dashboard not provide you access to specific metrics for who has added insights to your ideas?

    Looking forward to seeing what other ideas folks have 😊

    Hey @Kirstie Macfarlane
    I appreciate the suggestion!

    Unfortunately reactions can't be filtered by Category in analytics, so no, it doesn't.

    We have Up Votes as a way to react to any regular post as well, so these generic "votes" are then counted in our Dashboard analytics. There isn't a way to parse which votes were on ideas and which were on discussions / answers.
