Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive notification on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

In Cognos 10.2.2 the icons to the left of reports on the Cognos portal were different for each default format (i.e. excel, PDF, HTML etc.) but in 11.0.7 the icons are all the same. This is quite a useful feature for us, as administrators, and user...
In Cognos 10 users had the option to go to "My Activities & Schedules" to see the status of their report runs. Sometimes a long running report could be still running or it could have experienced an error when running. Users used to be able t...
