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.

Need the ability to modify the right click/on demand menu toolbar on a report/dashboard, to only allow some of the items for users to choose.

    Would be useful to set this on folder level too. We have a standard reports folder and we don’t want users to copy reports from there to have one version of truth. But they should be able to copy reports from self service folder. Now we can only disable this for all members of a role for all folders via customized features, not folder specific.

    To further the point, some of the default selections in Cognos are often not-applicable to the context at hand, specially if you are embedding Cognos dashboards into other applications.

    As one example, the context-bar for widgets always shows the "Pin" icon, even for users without the permission to author any dashboard.
