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.

Unlocked cells in web

Cells that are locked in form in Excel, are open in web. This is probably due to the fact that the forms are not opened in an Excel environment, but as a web form. This creates a loophole to input data into accounts that should not reported into.

    Hi from product management...

    Cell locking does work for free forms from the 10.4.2 release.

    As you mentioned, for standard forms there is a limitation around the grid that comes with the UI framework.

    We do plan to move to new UI framework so we will review the possbility to lock forms on standard forms at that time to determine if it is possible.

    We may also consider using the same mechanism - an Excel experience - that we use for free forms in web for standard forms too which would obviously enable us to offer this feature on standard forms.
