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.

Filter Linked Visualizations When Filtered Field Exists in the Visualization

Linked visualizations currently only highlight when a value is selected in another visualization containing the same field; if a visualization does not contain the same field, then values are filtered. We need all linked visualizations to behave consistently as filters regardless of filtering field inclusion. Highlighting the value is problematic, especially when the field is a part of a list or crosstab visualization containing several rows in that the end user must then scroll through the list/crosstab in order to find the highlighted values which is not an efficient use of time. Filtering will allow the proper focus to be placed on the selected values providing the user with an immediate view of the filtered data. At present, our work-around is to add an additional field to the query bearing a slightly different name and use that in our filter visualizations ensuring those fields are not included in other visualizations. The current method of highlighting filtered values impacts all dashboard users in our organization.
