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.

ENH: On the y-axis of a line chart need to display times as 10:00 AM and 12:15 PM instead of numbers 1 to 24

On the y-axis of a line chart need to display times as 10:00 AM and 12:15 PM etc instead of numbers between 1 to 24. Using numbers between 1 and 24 puts times like 11:55 PM and 12:03 AM on opposite ends of the y-axis scale. The chart needs to display the times in the order that time appears on a clock.
The critical issue here is not �AM� or �PM�. The critical issue is the ability to offset the Y axis so that 1 minute before Midnight is not at the top of the graph and 2 minutes after midnight at the bottom of the graph. Hours 1 to 24 are fine if the graph can be offset so Midnight is in the middle of the graph (i.e. starts at 12 at the bottom 24 in the middle and 11 at the top).
