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.

Able to break link for Controller Excel-Linked Formulas

scenario: users created excel-linked reports which included excel formulas. Every month, they want to distribute the reports to non-Controller users (usually management level) but to retain excel formulas. So users have to perform "copy+paste value" steps to remove all controller excel-linked formulas. Although a good report design may reduce the amount of effort to do, it is inevitable that they have to comb through their reports (with multiple tabs) to ensure all are converted.

proposed solution: To click a button and break controller excel-linked formula links, convert to values. but not affecting excel formulas.
