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.

Hover Text on Dashboard

Dashboard needs to be clean and have short titles due to real estate being valuable on the page. If the hover text function could have a full title and definition of terms for specific visualizations / metrics then we can keep the clean look and feel of a dashboard and not muddy up the view with definitions box

    A good idea. I have a situation where my code descriptions are too long to put on the dashboard, so t would be great to have the ability to display a code (or short description) on the dashboard and have the ability to add the full description in the hover text.

    Along these lines, display of the funnel / filter should be optional, ideally only display if the user hovers over the visualization.  This would be particularly useful on the summary visualization.  When a page has a number of summary items you see a bunch of funnels that look out of place.
    Also the ability to edit the data item labels like you can in RS.  We have long data item names for clarity but often the business and the dashboard need shorter names.  Clarity is in the context of the dashboard, or hover over to get more details.  Would also like to see the screen tips from FM model appear on the dashboard.
