How do I reject an idea?

A new state called rejected has been added for ideas. That is in addition to the current available idea states which are Review Not Requested, Returned for Revision, Awaiting Approval and Approved. When an idea is rejected the status of the work is changed to canceled. This article describes how you can reject an idea that has been submitted for review.  

Note: Idea is a replaceable term in PowerSteering. Your organization may use a different label to represent ideas on your site.
