I want to implement voting for new feature issues to a broad community

My question is really what is best practice here in terms of visibility. 

Should voters have to log in?

What permission levels are appropriate?

Should i workflow  automate visibility based on Type e.g. If featured then public 


From my research so far, it seems guests can not vote  and if you have a large community then paying $3/month per voting user is not commercially viable.

On HelpDesk there is ‘reporter’ user type that allows access to Helpdesk only issues - is there a way of doing is using that?



I'm Lena from YouTrack.

You are right; only registered users can vote for the issues. Unfortunately, we didn't consider adding access to the non-helpdesk projects for the reporters, so there is no possibility for the reporter to vote at the moment. However, I created a feature request: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/JT-78484/Allow-reporter-to-vote-for-the-features-and-bugs-in-the-non-helpdesk-projects

Let me know if you have additional questions.
