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.

TFUI - Make validation and operation definitions re-usable across stages within workflow and across workflows

Many validation and operations would occur during many/all stage transitions. Currently the whole definition has to be re-entered for every stage required which is error-prone and time-consuming. Ideally it should be possible to define the val...

TFUI - Enable Workflow Validations and Operations on SAVE

Many of the data quality rules span objects - Eg. Impact booking date must be GT Event Occurrence Date. Form rules only allow for rules on a single object so cannot be used. Workflow rules for validations and operations only run on workflow transi...

Admin Export should either export the selected dependent picklists and field dependencies or remove the optiion to make the specific selections

The current Admin export feature allows you to select specific field dependencies and specific dependent picklists - however the XML exported contains ALL rather than the selected ones. Ideally the export XML should only contain the selected i...

System Administrator option to prevent user login, disconnect existing users and display notification message.

When an administrator needs to perform some system maintenance operations we may need to keep users out of the system - but the system has to remain up. Eg. Large hierarchy change with data moves and security access changes. Or an upgrade where we...

[TFUI] Configure default sorting in Grid Views

Currently in a Grid View, the object instances are sorted by default by the Name field in an ascending order. In an embedded Grid, the default sorting can be configured to meet ones needs. This is not possible in a Grid View. Users have to apply t...

Workflow Instances - add folder path filter

In addition to the existing filters on 'Workflow Instances', it would be very useful to be able to filter by folder path. Ideally this would form part of a cut-down Business Admin access, but if not, it's still useful if the system administrator h...

New UI - Criticality to allow for 'Not Defined' or 'Not Applicable'

On some objects it is meaningless to define criticality, or at least meaningless when only having fields on that object available for the rule e.g. Action object may not have a RAG, because the RAG is defined on the parent issue e.g. Test Pla...

Allow more complex evaluation conditions in JSON rules

Currently, the field types supported for editable/readonly, and visible/hidden rules in JSON are only enumeration and actor fields, and rules are defined as all-AND (allOf) or all-OR (anyOf). There is no way to: make a field visible or require...

Control over grid view column widths

We're finding grid views / embedded grid views have disproportionate column widths (in terms of reader usability/readability). This often impacts us on fields such as Name and Description. If we had the ability to define the column widths ourselve...
