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.

Use a report as source to create a dataset

Starting from a package , a new dataset can be created. But i'm missing some features to assemble my new dataset. Only filtering is possible. Why it isn't possible to create a dataset from a report ? In reporting we have a lot more possibilities (union, join,..).

    11.1.7 will allow users to copy/paste reportspec from a report to a data set for reuse. Users can also copy/paste individual queries from a report to a data set.

    Very important to use reports as source of datasets.

    • Edit your data set.
    • In the browser's address bar, change perspective=dataset to perspective=authoring.

    Now you can use all of the features of Reporting to edit your data set.

    Of course, it would be nice if IBM provided a button in the data set authoring tool to change perspectives.
