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.

Set a custom palette in Cognos 11.1.1 as default for the whole dashboarding environment

Dear IBM, We would like to have the posibility to set a custom Palette which is saved under "Global" as default for the whole dashboarding environment.This is to maintain our corporate identity.

    and we need to be able to import/export this palette easily between environments - just like themes, extensions, visualizations library are included in the deployment options. Thanks!

    Not only set this in Dashboarding, it is for all the tools. Many companies have their own color lists, and it's only to be expected that you can set a certain Global Palette as the default base for any visualization in a report or dashboard (or any other asset with visual aspects). Great idea, i'm joining!

    Another limitation in Dashboards for maintaining corporate identity is the font. e.g. Segoe fonts not available and cannot be installed as in Reporting
