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.

Create map with zip codes

Limited number of zip codes are currently supported for maps. We need a full set of zip codes in order to use the map functionality. Right now zip codes are showing as unrecognized location, even for major cities.

    We currently support 5 digit US Zip codes in the product provided that these boundaries have associated shapes. We are unable to map single point areas like PO boxes in the product today. These will be delivered in a future release as part of a larger map accuracy improvement initiative. Recomendded workaround for now, is to Map these locations as lat/long points.

    Something else we can try to improve accuracy is to qualify the zip code with country as this will help us significantly reduce ambiguities.

    Would it possible for us to learn more about the Zip codes that are currently not being rendered?
