Submitting an Employee-driven Idea

To start the process click the Submit idea button available on the top, right-hand side of the page.

As per your current permissions, you are now asked to select a Business Area for your automation. From the dropdown list, choose one that applies. Continue with a Category, Sub-Category, if the case. Based on the selection and according to your permissions, the system loads the list with available idea flows (e.g. Employee-driven idea, CoE-driven idea, Citizen Developer automation, Change request) that can be selected in Idea type.


In the first section of the form, the Overview, you can Name your Idea, add an Automation ID, a description of the process in the Description field.

  • In the Automation name field you are allowed to enter alphanumerical characters and the following special characters: dash (-), exclamation mark (!), hash sign (#), comma (,), underscore (_) and a limit of 100 characters.
  • A Potential Duplicate message is displayed if the title and the automation category you added for your ideas are similar to other ideas. Before going forward please check the profile of the idea displayed as duplicate. The below options are available:
  • My idea is a duplicate: mark your idea as duplicate and suspend the submission process.
  • Continue with my idea: continue the submission process.

High Level Assessment

In the High Level Assessment section, you can reply to a set of questions specific to your idea that will help the system compute a general idea score, as well as two scores regarding the suitability of your automation idea and how ready the task or process is to be automated.

There are five questions with six possible answer options each.

For the last question, you have the option to upload relevant documents for the described process.

Assign Process Owner

In the third section you can assign and invite a Process Owner to add more information for the automation idea once the idea is approved.

A Process Owner can be any user that is part of the specific Automation Hub tenant and has the Active or Pending status in the Assign Roles page.

If the Process Owner question remains empty during idea submission, the process owner needs to be assigned during the idea approval step.

After providing information for all the questions, the last step is to click Submit for Review.

The Idea Score is displayed. Check it out carefully as it contains important details about the shared idea. Check the Information About the Idea Score for more details.

Selecting What's next?! gives you the below options:
