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.

Client would like to have a simplier method so that the drop down list in active report can be easier to control the charts

The client wants to have a simpler method to design the active report in order to do the following function.
The client would like to create an Active Report with a Drop-Down List and a Chart inside a Data Deck. Drop-down list contains 2 items (By Quantity and By Revenue).

If a user selects By Quantity the Measure in the bar chart will show Quantity. And if a user selects By Revenue the chart Measure will show Revenue.

If there are 6 selections in the drop-down list the active report needs to create 8 cards into the Deck and replicate/copy the 6 charts for every. In comparison the standard report only needs to create 6 charts for all selected measures. In this case active reports will have 48 charts all together. It will bloat the Active Report in size.
