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.
Let us use a programming language to control the conversation flow instead of forcing us to use the dialog editor
The main feature of Watson Assistant is to categorize utterances and extract entities from them. Currently, the only way to use this feature is to edit the dialog using the UI provided on IBM cloud. It would be nice to have access to the main feat...
Update cursor to provide more contrast in JSON editor
A few versions ago, we were able to see the cursor in the JSON editor within a dialog node, but now it's very difficult to see so it makes editing very difficult. Can the cursor be changed to provide more contrast so we can find it.
When changing Intent name, offer to change corresponding dialog nodes
When we change an intent name, then all the dialog nodes that use it have errors because the old intent name no longer exists. We suggest that when an intent name is changed, then the option is provided to also change where it is used in dialog.
Currently, Disambiguation has a fixed threshold of confidence between the top intent and other intents to trigger disambiguation. We would like to see this threshold be configurable so that disambiguation doesn't get triggered too often (or not as...
One of our team members asked for this. Here's their request: ... I really miss the ability to export the JSON without having to go back to the skills page. There used to be an icon next to Try it that gave you that ability. I used that A LOT to m...
show instance in Watson Assistant UI (as was the case in prior version)
The Watson Assistant UI used to show the instance, but that was removed. Now, we need to go to the profile icon and click on it. So, please when in WA and editing a skill, it would be very helpful to display the instance on the screen instead of h...
New dynamically moving User Interface UI causes accidental delete
The new UI that dynamically resizes the dialog node tree, the details of the currently selected node and the search panel is very helpful. However, I ran into an issue where I was trying to click on something and just as I pushed the button, the s...
Currently, the "option" response type of a dialog node supports 20 options. This limit is very low, because in many cases this type of response is used to list branches, cities, etc. It should be at least 100 options the limit.
