No idea ends up where it started.

For team members, GLIDR is the place that innovation happens. We provide an innovation toolkit and collaboration tools that help teams formulate ideas, run experiments to validate or invalidate them and build business cases based on evidence rather than assumption.

Step 4 - Prioritize Your Ideas

The priority list enables team members to properly allocate resources and prioritize data collection for aspects of the business model that are considered critical or high-risk. The priority list is editable only within the Workspace, and the top five priority ideas are displayed in a read-only format on the Project Dashboard.

1. Click the List button in the upper left area of the Workspace.

2. Drag-and-drop individual ideas with the grid icon that appears when you hover your cursor over the idea.

Step 5 - Create an Interview

1. Navigate to the Workspace and select the Evidence tab. Click the + button to create new Evidence.

2. Select Interview.

3. Click Add person to add relevant interviewee profile details.

NOTE: If you interview multiple people at one time, be sure to capture their individual profile information. Click the add person icon to enter your first interviewee, enter their profile information and click the Add button. Repeat this step for the remaining interviewee(s) and when you are finished click the Close button.

4. Select the date of your interview by clicking Interview Date.

5. In the KEY INSIGHTS section, you're prompted to enter the main takeaway learnings from your interview, and enter detailed notes or a transcript in the NOTES field. You can format your content by highlighting the appropriate section.

6. Add relevant tags to easily find this Evidence later.

7. Click the PUBLISH button in the upper right corner to add it to this project. If you are not ready to publish, click the X button in the upper right corner to save this interview in the Drafts folder. Learn more about Drafts here.

You can design Research (researching without a determined idea to generate new ideas) or an Experiment (testing a specific idea to get a precise yes or no result) to generate data and test ideas.

Step 8 - Notifications
