Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.

We have a need to model a future scenario based on current data. This projection requires user input, and is accomplished via prompting in a report. Every time we want to recalculate the projection value due to a changed assumption, the report mus...
Currently the product allows a user to sort visualizations Ascending, Descending or Custom. The custom sort allows the user to pick the values. If user views the report in another language, then the custom sort is no longer respected. The model co...
Output embedded reports as part of PDF outputs in Dashboards
The Use case revolves around dashboards that have complex embedded reports as part of the dashboard output. When exporting to PDF, currently, embedded widgets are not shown in the PDF output. This hinders the ability to consolidate and share insig...
Dashboard with multiple visualizations logs multiple records in the Audit database.
We have a dashboard report in Cognos that is created from a dataset. Ran the report once but see that it shows a 7 entries in standard audit report "Execution History By User". This gives an inaccurate run count when we send the audit report to bu...
