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.

The area of interest is the Consolidation batch queue. We have to consolidate all actualities and periods, both monthly and weekly including linked actualities on a quarterly basis. It can be time consuming uploading the consolidations into the ba...
It would be beneficial if the total number of users logged on to Controller is displayed in the function View Active Users. Today we have to count the number of users manually and itÂ´s quite time consuming if there are more than 150 users logged...
