Changing Brainstorm Ideas into Tasks (Could be a Question or an Idea)

Is it possible to change a Brainstorm Idea into a Topic/Task with out essentially recreating the Idea as a Topic and deleting the Idea?

Often what might start our as a simple idea becomes a full blown topic and/or task and it's frustrating having to recreate the idea(s) (and possibly their structure as) a new set of Topics or Tasks...

Neil, Yes. You should be able to do that. Are you running into issues? If so, what's happening?

Hi Michael,
Sorry, I'm new here and may have now found how to do this by simply removing the icons that define the entry as an Idea, Challenge or Focus... (RMB > Icons > Remove Icons)
Is that how you would see/do it?
Thanks

Hi Neil, no worries. There are many ways to slice this one. You could add different icons. You can simply add a % complete icon onto it and assign resources. Then there are more advanced methods like sending the topic to either Mindjet Tasks, Outlook or SharePoint.

Overall really enjoying the tool, it's got some great features, just got to convince myself and my employer of the subs model now.. :-)
Thanks
