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.

    This one seems like an easy one to implement with a lot of benefits for the users. Pinning reports would be really useful. Canoot believe this idea has been arouufn for +1year and never implemented.

In Cognos Connection 10.2.2 we had the ability to create pages as a placeholder for key reports and to provide the business with an overview of how are we doing. In Cognos Analytics this feature is obsolete, but the current ways of delivering cont...

Add a "Pinned" Report section to the Welcome Page

It would be useful to have a Tiled "Pinned" section on the Welcome page similar to the "Recent" section. A user would be able to "Pin" favorite dashboards / reports etc... to that section. (Note: This is similar to RFE's 106052 & 944439)
