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.

Align font size of KPI & summary visualizations on a dashboard tab

We'Id like to have the font size of KPI and summary visualizations aligned, at least on a tab.
Typically on dashboards KPI/Summary visualizations are aligned adjacent on a dashboard tab, with identical visualization box sizes. To make things look good, the font size should be the same.

Right now, depending on the value (ex #months= 3, volume = 500 tons, revenue= 3.6 K) the font size is determined automatically. To make things worse, KPI's less important are shown bigger than those that are important (ex #months).

Fyi, Above is just a simplified example, as we have tabs with +10 KPI's showing.

Other option could be allowing to specify font size (or small/medium/large/auto), but this would loose the current benefit of auto-resizing font when resizing screens.

Dashboards are used by business analyts, but also sales and management, and these type of seemingly small formatting issues can be show-stoppers.

We have more and more requests coming from independent departments (who are also comparing with other BI tools) asking for the same thing, so I am sure we are not the only ones that would benefit from this idea/request.

    This is a great idea, even the simple table visual from dashboards. You can't adjust the width of each column, and do simple Wrap Text. Makes a simple and powerful visual be almost impossible to use, with no auto-adjustment of width or manual width adjustment possibilities. Hope they do something about small customizations
