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: Automatic Active Report axes scaling

In RAVE it is currently possible to set the properties of a value field so that the scale of the corresponding axis will always resize in accordance with the data if it is filtered by an Active Report variable. If you have more than one value field as in the case of a bubble chart these axes are controlled separately. What would be useful is to be able to set the axis range to the range of another value field. This is useful if you are comparing two measures that have the same scale. Independently changing axes make it difficult to interpret the data because the relative scaling of the measures changes each time.

For example I would like to compare the average spend for a secured line versus an out-of-contract line in the chart: image added to this CQ.

What would be ideally required is for both axes to scale to the value of the greater value (that is. the x-axis in the example image would scale up to 1000 because the y-axis has the greater value). This would keep the relative perspective of the two measures the same (in other words one could always draw a straight line from the bottom-left hand corner to the top right-hand corner and it would cross through the intersections where the values are equal for both measures).
