Any user level can be set up to allow administration/moderation from the front end. For instance, you can have the Publisher user level and above to Super Administrator be allowed access to administer the component's content. No need to log into the backend (administration area) for making little tweaks to the content, do it from the front end where you can see the changes take place. All moderation functions are still allowed from the backend as well.
The allowed user levels can add new, change the published status, change the order, and edit the categories. They can submit and edit/delete suggestions and comments all in the front end of the site.
Administrators can now be assigned a category to administer. This is good for sites who want to supply a feedback for items listed by others. They can edit the category title and description only.
Specify whether registered users or guests are allowed to submit suggestions, vote on suggestions, and submit comments. Also, allow users who submitted suggestions and/or comments to be allowed to edit or delete their own suggestions and/or comments.
Restrict how many votes a registered user and a guest are able to submit per category.
Return votes to users and disable voting for suggestions that reach a specific status.
The option to have a navigation menu at the top of the component is available. The available menu items/filters are Categories, Top, New, Accepted, Rejected, Work in Progress and Completed. Any of them can be enabled/disabled to meet your preference. The Categories menu returns the user back to the categories list view. Top displays a list of the suggestions in that category in order of most votes. The New filter lists the suggestions that meet the new criteria established in the parameters (ie, 15 days). Rejected, Accepted, Work in Progress and Completed are filters that list the suggestions that meet that status. The option to display the number of suggestions for each item in the navigation menu tabs is available.
Users are allowed to report suggestions and comments as spam, duplicate or inappropriate and you are notified in the backend where you can delete the reported item or unmark the reported tag. This will save you time from overseeing all content submitted to this feedback system.
Users are allowed the option to receive email notifications of comments posted to their suggestions.
Specified user levels can receive email notifications of suggestions and comments created.
Currently, BeeHeard is integrated to support JomSocial and CommunityBuilder components. When a user is logged in and they have a profile with either social networking component, their username is used as well as their avatar in the comments section of the component. The option to link to their profile is available.
The next release of BeeHeard will have the option of using BeeHeard's own commenting system or your choice of JComments, !JoomlaComment or JomComment as the commenting system. The plugins and components are needed in order for this option to work properly.
