This month we bring you a brand new feature that we think will be a powerful addition to the way you present and manage challenges. Challenge Groups (or "themes") is a new way to think about your challenge structure and how it relates to the "topography" of your organization.
Challenge groups provide a way to present a number of challenges together based on any criteria you choose, whether by topic area, geographical location, organizational boundaries or any other factor.
The possibilities are endless. Challenge groups let you determine what's important in your organization and allows you to reflect that in the presentation of your challenges.
Don't worry, if you're not ready for challenge groups your platform will remain unchanged and continue to work just as it does today. But we encourage you to explore the feature. Nothing changes in the underlying challenges and ideas so there's nothing you can break!

You can use a combination of challenge groups and user groups to create sub-communities of users. For instance, you might create a series of challenges that are for management only and show up under a management theme for those users only.

Also this month we're launching an updated admin panel. HunchBuzz has many cool features and that means admins need to be able to manage those features - but it's not always easy to find your way around so we've re-thought the admin panel. Now you can see all the options in a glance and also search for any setting you need to locate:
Ever had trouble locating your idea on the Journey board? Us too, so we've solved the problem. You can now navigate from a challenge or an idea directly to the Journey board pre-filtered on your challenge. If you've come from an idea it will be highlighted for easy identification.
From a challenge: Click the "View in Journey" button
From an idea: Click the "View in Journey" icon
Keep on innovating!
