  3. Once logged in on the Dashboard, SEARCH for [YOUR GROUP NAME] (in the top black bar)
  4. Click on your group > open JOIN OPTIONS > Become a MEMBER
  5. Click IDEAS and RATE and COMMENT on ALL the ideas
  6. ADD IDEAS of your own for others to consider
  7. Once you’ve finished, make sure you go to your EMAIL INBOX and VALIDATE your email address.
    NB. If you can’t find it, check your JUNK folder.

Crowdsourcing Projects
In many cases, the best ideas identified via VocalEyes may well need people to make some level of commitment or contribute resources to bring the ideas to fruition. VocalEyes makes it easy to create “Projects” where the necessary resources and commitment can be crowdsourced.
