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.

Print Functionality from Browser in CA 11.0.8

Currently we have reports in 10.2.2 which are HTML specific and we use browser's print functionality to print
After Migrating to CA, this functionality is lost. so we would request to add back this functionality into CA in future release.
When trying to save it PDF and Print the report from PDF we loose certain formatting
and these are critical reports for us.
Since this functionality was available in 10.2.2 we would like the new release to have this functionality so we our migration effort is reduce to new version.

    We have never supported browser printing. We can put this on our list to investigate but it's not a priority to us right now.

    The browser printing isn't recommended by us because it's unpredictable. It's up to the browser to control the print rendering. In many cases we can see report layout isn't generated correctly. Our recommended method is to use PDF for printing.

    This is a no brainer and should be expedited.
