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.

Problem with total on a grouped list

I have a problem in my report with a count. It's not the first time I
have encountered the problem so I'm thinking maybe I'm doing something

The data item I'm putting a count on is counted for each record of the
dataset and not only for the data item it is attached to (grouping).
I'm not quite sure how to explain the problem so I have enclosed a pdf
that explains it as well as the report specification.

If ClientA has a date for ""first contact"" it should count as 1 ""fist
contact"". But ClientA can have more that one ""project"". So If ClientA
has a date for ""first contact"" and 2 ""projects"" the count gives me 2
""first contacts"" even though there is only one displayed in the report.

Hope you can help me.
