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.
Enable the encoding to handle text files in ShiftJIS code.
There're a lot of ShiftJIs text files stored on Windows File System which we're going to crawl, but currently there's no way to change the encoding setting in WD(on CP4D), so all of them are garbled ( by default they are read as UTF-8 text).Plea...

WDS highlights should honour Advanced Search quotes
During Project Daisey development, we've come across the inconsistency between highlights returned by WDS and the query.
Even if the WDS Query language query contains a compound term (which project daisey uses very frequently for financial terms...
Are there any plans to suppport more than one ranker for a given Discovery collection. This would help us train and test a "ranker B" while "ranker A" is in production. The alternative that we see is to create duplicate/synched Discovery collectio...
Many customer documents contain complex tables within PDFs. WDS can currently look into the tables, but often results in several cells being concatenated rendering the text unusable. Ultimately, it would be useful to also add the context of a cell...
It would be useful to be able to provide Discovery logic that would allow it to split one ingested document into multiple indexed documents. For example, make every paragraph or page a single Discovery document.
When a user indexes a document there could be a large number of images that could have relevant information. As a user I would like to see those images added as metadata to the indexed document to make the WDS service smarter.
