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.

Send Email on Report Failure

We need an email sent to the report author when a scheduled report fails. This way, we could re-run the report or research the failure.

    This is a great idea, Watson Care Manager clients currently complain that emails do not land, when the schedule is broken.

    Getting an email, if the delivery option is set to email, when the schedule fails would be greatly appreciated for clients of Watson Care Manager.

    Thank you @Rick for the attachment.

    Is there a way to limit the results to only reports that are scheduled? (as opposed to all reports that ran)

    We created a report that runs daily and is sent to the administrators and they then contact the users.

    Attached is a file on how it was created.
