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.

Status Is a defect
Workspace Cognos Analytics
Created by Guest
Created on Jul 9, 2021

Make the Cognos pop-up "validation" or "running report" contextual to its browser tab area

When validating or running a report and switching to the home screen or to another report the hourglass pop-up message remains in the front persistently.

Our expectation is the pop-up message "Validating with report server" remains in the tab area of the respective report.


For the user it is not really clear to which report execution or validation the hourglass pop-up belongs to.
Cognos 11 allows you to modify, validate, run several reports in parallel, but the handling of the pop-up messages doesn't fit this approach.
