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.

Please update the LKEY and TT commands to work with all table types (not aliases and views but should include regular tables like archive, history, and MQT, etc.) Also, TT should be displayed on first search screen. Refer to case TS003373784

GOC should have the intelligence to know when to generate a rebind not using option (A, M, N) on the panel which causes unnecessary rebinds generated
Rebinds should be generated when needed not by using option (A, M, N) .The help panels and user guide have been updated to clarify option "A" means "All relevant. Run the rebind on all packages that reference any of the modified objects." Option "...
