Just thought it would be fun and help keep the forum active if we had a thread to share updates on the status of our submissions when they move to the next stage or when they get the dreaded Red X.

Just tell us the searches you're in and the stage of each of your submissions. Then come back here to update every time something happens on your dashboard.

Here's my status:

All Category Search: G3

Hey C.R. , 

I like your idea and believe it would be a way to increase conversation within the forums and possibly create a greater sense of community. 

I currently do NOT Have any submissions in process.  My goal from the beginning was to develop and submit one idea per month on average. ( not including opt-ins) I am happy to say I am on track , I have a few submissions ready to submit and will have submitted at least 12  concepts by the time my one yr anniversary (3/16/20) rolls around. 

Providing others like your idea too, I will begin to post submission status as we move fwd.

Good luck with your submission C.R. and I hope to see a G4  in your future postings.

Love this topic. Not green or red either. One of my last submissions received an R8. It was an innovation on the Cake Stand and Carrier. Unfortunately EN couldn't find a company to license it to. Been pitching it on my own and found a few interested companies. One is asking for a sample. Sending that soon. Fingers crossed. I must say that I Love Edison Nation because they take the obstacles out of pitching to companies compared to when you are on your own. To the folks out there just starting to "invent," as they call it, hang in there. Persistence wins, always. I've licensed 2 product ideas so far, along with several others under review. If you need help with company contacts--feel free to reach out. I'd be happy to provide some recommendations if Edison Nation doesn't work out. Best of luck!

I have close to 105 red X'd submissions. 

Every ASOTV submission rejected. I think Im done submitting to ASOTV at Edison Nation. .

ASOTV is definitely a tough arena. Not sure what category your product ideas fall in but I'd be happy to help you find companies that might be a good fit. I have contacts in housewares, pet, toy, etc. I have found luck in focusing  mostly on the medium sized companies. 

Exhibitor lists, LinkedIn, Thomas Net, and even Amazon are great resources for finding open innovation companies.

You're right, Tim, the date of submission and the date of moving into another stage would be very interesting to know. I've seen so many people ask, "How long will it take to move into the next stage?"

So for my first one, that went R4:
All Category Search: R4 January 27, 2020 (G1 January 13, 2020 / G2 January 16, 2020 / G3 January 21, 2020)

For the new one that I have just submitted:
All Category Search: G1 January 28, 2020

Congrats on your G-7, Tim! I predict that G-6 will turn G-7 too very soon!

I have a couple of G-3's on the "All Category" & One G-3 on Crowdfunding.

Hoping at least one of us makes it to the top.  :-)

Hey CR, sorry to see the R4! 

- I jumped back into the green yesterday (2/10/20) with three Alll Cat ideas submitted. As of today....... I wonder if I can "opt" them into the new Everyday Edison search ?

@ Rodney Goodrich Insiders can "opt in" to any search as long as it is a proper fit for that search.

@williamj - Thank you for the comment you posted.

Innovators - William hits on a VERY IMPORTANT  aspect that everyone should consider very seriously. Opting in should be done with thought, make sure what you are submitting is a PROPER FIT for the search that you are choosing to OPT it into.

Innovation is about research, and selecting the right searches to submit an idea into is an example of an innovator doing proper research.

I know some have heard the example we often use...but there is no reason at times that a member of our review team should be evaluating a CHAINSAW submission in a search that is for KIDS TOYS. I think we can all see the potential issues there, right ?? So that is clearly not a fit...but that is just one example that we can provide where review team members have had to take time to respond/provide feedback,etc on a submission that clearly is not a good fit.

So, especially since we just opened up many search buckets for Everyday Edisons consideration, please be considerate and think about your Opt ins, versus simply dumping your repository of ideas into a search that doesn't fit.

We don't want to have members of our review team looking at a luggage idea in the Kitchen Gadget and Tool search...but we have already had to do that for the Everyday Edisons search that opened yesterday.

Please help our review team be as effective as they possibly can be, by ensuring that you do your research before submitting.  Thanks
