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.

Select color coding

Need the ability to set colors for specific data items consistently from tile to tile.

    This is already 4 ears old and seems pretty fundamental. This is holding back CA adoption.
    The ability to assign colours to specific dimension members is critical. And this should apply across multiple viz tiles.
    (eg OK = Green , poor = yellow, bad = red ; or Brand X = blue, Brand Y = red)
    Is there any other method for doing this?

    Please implement this. I have questions where the response is on a Likert scale from "Highly Satisfied" to "Highly Disatisfied" or "Strongly Agree" to "Strongly Disagree" or "Very Easy" to "Very Difficult". It would be nice to be able to use red / green or red / yellow / green swatches that people naturally associate with good and bad.

    Yes I am aware of color blindness and cultural differences associated with color meaning. Still I would like the option to assign these colors to the data especially when I know who the audience is and it is not goint out for worldwide consumption. Even if you had some predefined red/green type color swatches that would be good.

    I have tried creating a custom color swatch set with these colors, but there is no way to assign the swatches to the response values. The only way I have been able to do it in the past is to add and remove the custom color swatches until randomly the colors are assigned to the variable in the order that I want.
