Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
Currently, for almost all the text responses in IBM Watson Assistant, there is a JSON editor. This JSON editor can be used for defining multiple characteristics like options, context variables etc. BUt, there is no JSON editor for 'Slot prompts'. ...
Support for live editing of the dialog while working with multiple people
As a conversation developer it would be nice to have functionality that supports working with multiple developers on the same dialog from different computers, without having to have refresh the browser screen every time.
The API currently does not support handling of carriage character. While our UI does handle this, in cases where customers copy/paste data, we are unable to handle unless we build a custom handler to remove carriage characters. While we can implem...

Add the possibility to jump to common pattern nodes/node groups (e. g. "Please enter your customer number/adress/phone number") from anywhere in the dialog flow and dynamically jump back, based on where you came from.
This could speed up dialog d...
Watson Assistant would benefit greatly with course management and control capabilities. These would allow best practice development capabilities and process as are normally used in enterprise applications. Large organizations would benefit from th...
Update cursor to provide more contrast in JSON editor
A few versions ago, we were able to see the cursor in the JSON editor within a dialog node, but now it's very difficult to see so it makes editing very difficult. Can the cursor be changed to provide more contrast so we can find it.
Get Search skill(Discovery) responses/logs via Assistant api(logs or a new analytics api)
Right now, AssistantV1 logs provides dialog skill logs only. Even if we provide assistant id, we do not get the search skill(discovery responses) logs. It will be good, if Assistant V2 also provides logs api or an analytics api, that can return bo...
In the Watson Assistant UI, currently you can only see the Description of a skill when you are in the skill (shows in upper left corner) and when you Rename the skill (it does not show under 'View API Details). It would be helpful to show the Des...
