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 freeze column headers in reporting crosstabs

The feature in dashboard crosstabs to freeze column headers is excellent, and should be replicated as well in the reporting environment. This is a long standing user request that is very difficult to achieve today.

    This is ridiculously. Such a critical functionality. Stone ages

    Please implement this function, which is desperately needed in nearly all reports with crosstab.

    Should be implemented as soon as possible, as e.g. Excel has this functionality for more than one decade now! How "High" has a priority to be to be in a future release?

    This is a claim, since this was possible in 10.2.2 and got lost. It is "planned" since Dec 2018, "High" priority. When will this be available? Now is April 2020.

    I agree with Stephen. Could you please clarify when this change will be implemented? 
    This functionality should be available in Interactive mode and dashboards. 

    Thank you.

    Can this be clarified to include the freezing on both column AND ROW headings, i.e. to replicate the Cognos Analytics dashboard behaviour fully and to ensure it is available in interactive mode.
