The Synthesis task-module is where ideas are clustered and organized. Users will be able to define qualitative axes by which to measure their ideas ("impact" vs. "implementation difficulty," for example), and then drag ideas to rate them accordingly. Visual tools will enable links between ideas to be made, clusters of ideas to be grouped, and individual ideas to be "drilled-into" and modified. If the project is being shared among multiple users, this view provides collective user rankings in addition to personal rankings.
The image below shows a sample of what the user interface could look like. Users would be able to roll-over an idea to see or edit idea details.
