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.

Use or mimic Global Parameters to work on Dashboards to set Filters by user

Currently we have a  Dashboard with a BranchOffice Filter.  The users do not have save/updated capability on Dashboards.  We don't want a free for all of changing and saving the dashboards.  If that was the case, then every user would have to go thru the filters every time to make sure they are set appropriately for them.  In order to have each Branch have the data tailored for them, I would have to copy the one dashboard 20 times with unique names.  I would then set the Filters on each of the 20 dashboards to be different.  If we ever want to change the Dashboard, I would have to make the change on the Master and then copy/replace the 20 copies I previously made, and reset each dashboards filters.  This solution is not scale-able / feasible.

    I am about to create a reporting project for my company and this is blocking the use of dashboards. With 32 managers, it would be inefficient to deploy and maintain dashboards. Active Reports is also out of the question due to browser compatibility issues.

    The abilty to filter for the user viewing the report would be extremely useful; a manager could see reports filtered for their subordinates or see just the data for projects that they manage, etc.

    Thanks for submitting this. We have a Project Managers Dashboard that unfortunately like you state, every time they access it, they have to set the filter to only show their projects. We don't allow them to save as it would affect the next PM using the dashboard. Only solution which is crazy is replicate for ever PM in the organization. This limitation definitely inhibits promoting corporate dashboards to be consumed by a large group of users.
