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.

Use generic "From" emails for specific departments
One department within our organization would like emails for only their reports to come from a different email address than the Cognos default, and they do not want emails sent from one person/developer either.
ALL Mail recipients in (Job) schedules visible at first sight
When creating a schedule, the user has the possibility to use main mail recipient, cc recipient, and bcc recipient. When manipulating a schedule later, ALL defined recipient types (main, cc, bcc) should show up at first sight, without necessity to...
