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.

Ability to set size for Search & Select Prompt

By default the Select and Search prompt is a fixed size which makes it difficult for us to layout other components on our prompt page that align with this S&S component. Also, with its fixed size, it makes it difficult for us to render the page that fits on iPad/Safari. We should be able to define a size with respect to screen resolution for this component.

    Wait, this started in 2017?? 5 YEARS and IBM still hasn't done anything to address truncation of result data in a search and select prompt?

    You mean, giving users the ability to size or (auto-size) a simple prompt on a page is still not an out of the box default function? It must have some crazy Herculean effort involved! Way more complicated than adding Watson AI to the product.

    Yeah, I'm doubting they even look at this page. Good luck everyone.

    when a search and select parameter is used for lists with a long # of characters, users need the ability to expand the search box in order to identify the correct selection.

    This would also be useful to make the boxes larger as our data is longer - forcing users to use the scrollbar on any search to see what they are really looking for.
