Add a manager-only question to the Employee Ideas app?

Hello, I'm so sorry if this is not the right place - I am not a very technical person.


I would like to use the Employee Ideas app for a project, but for this to work I would need to have a couple questions that are only visible to Managers on each idea.  It would be very fine to have the same type of questions as in the standard app (I.E. text or 1-5 answers), but it should not be visible to anyone except for managers or those granted permission.


I assume these questions should be added in the "Manage Ideas" tab, which only managers can access.  I can't see any way to add manager-only questions though and have no idea how to go about it. 


Any advice or support would be overwhelmingly appreciated!

Hi @Casey4952 ,


You could set the question's Visible property to:


If the current user's Job title is not "Manager", the questions will disappear.


Best Regards,


That sounds exactly like it would solve things!  I'm so sorry, I don't know where or how to set a visible property though.  Within Manage Teams I have these options


Will I have to do this through Power Apps then?  If I do Power Apps -> Build -> Installed Apps, I get this screen.


Pressing "See all" gives me this


Or if I instead press "Manage Ideas" or "Ideas" I can get here in the tree view.


Any advice on where to go from there?  I'm so sorry, I've never even looked at anything like this before... I have no experience here, but this would be so perfect if I could use it for my project. 

Thank you so much, truly!
