Ability to restrict Admins to specific forums
More granular settings for admins/agents/moderators.
Having forum based admins is a huge need. It would be great if we could set it up so that they would only be able to be admins of a single forum and not have super admin powers.
Jeremy Irish commented
Agreed. We have a large community and many trusted users who would be happy to ensure that problem users are moderated when our employees are unavailable.

We upgraded plans so that we could have multiple forums, but we need different administrators for these forums, especially so that email notifications go to the right people! I couldn't find the forum names in any of my email notifications and therefore setting up a rule in Outlook didn't work.
Paul Stahlke commented
The main thing for me is to separate the email notifications. As an admin I get emails for all the forums when I only need to hear about one of them. I can use Outlook rules to detect the forum name and filter out the "New Ideas", but "comments" and other actions don't include the name of the forum anywhere in the email. All emails should have the forum name in them. This problem adds to my daily spam and takes me more time to manage my inbox. Thanks.
@Mike, I'm going to merge this into a similar idea. This is something we've considered for some time.
@Katy, this is still on our roadmap, but has been a bit delayed to allow us to focus on some higher-priority features. Thanks for your patience!

I did not see this ability in the new admin dashboard that was released. Are there still plans for this functionality?

Besides having admins per forum, I assume that these admins have also less privileges on global level (non-forum related stuff).
I would think that forum-admins are allowed to
- change statuses of ideas
- add/read the notes (which are only visible to admins)
- do moderation on ideas
- batch upload ideas to their forum
While a global admin can do the setup things.
- Upload logo/custom design
- Domain aliasing
- Create/delete/edit forums and forum-settings.

Is there anywhere we can see the full plan for the 2010 revamp?
