IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. 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.

Allow Custom Sorting of contents like Folders, Reports and Packages

Ability to control custom sorting of contents has been removed from v11. This is highly required item by our business community. Arranging the contents by alphabetical order is not sufficient. Not adding this feature back will be a big negative.

Drop Downs in Dashboard in Cognos Analytics 11

In Cognos Analytics 11 at the moment we can drag an item to the dashboard and it creates a hierarchy that can be selected from to change data. If we can change this to a drop down, similar to what can be done on report studio prompt pages, then it...

Ability to Schedule a refresh of an Uploaded File

I would like to have the ability to schedule a refresh of an uploaded file. If you store your excel or text to a file share and grant Cognos access to that share, you should have the ability to schedule a refresh of that data file.

Different icons for default run format of reports

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...

Ability to set size for Search & Select Prompt

By default the Select and Search prompt is a fixed size which makes it difficult for us to layout other components on our prompt page that align with this S&S component. Also, with its fixed size, it makes it difficult for us to render the pag...

+/- buttons for column grouping

The ability to group columns in Cognos would be a great feature which is a small thing but a missing element compared to MS Reporting services reporting. https://oxen.tech/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/grouping.gif In fact the (+)/(-) buttons used wi...
