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.

Extend document removal API to work with removal queries
There have been several issues discovered when working with discovery and very dynamic date / agile prototyping. It is not possible (currently) to remove multiple documents, just 1 at a time. Often in the beginning of a project the data is ingeste...
Improve visualization of Entity Roles, Entity Subtypes, Mention Types, and Mention Classes
When annotating a role or subtype, there is no visual cue for the Entity Role, the Entity SubType, the Mention Type, or the Mention Class. There could perhaps be colored icons appearing below the annotation to display this
