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.

Allow users to change their language in profile

Our application is used by people from different countries. At the moment the only option of changing the language in CP4D is to change the default one in the browser. Having the option either on main page or profile would be a lot easier.

    Hi Malcom,

    The specific use case we have right now with our colleagues in Italy. Their computers come pre-configured with the locale set to Italian. However they prefer english as working language for techincal terms used in Cloud Pak. The reasoning behind having a different locale than English is unknown to us, and I think irrelevant.

    I think it's good practice to allow users to choose language at application level and not force them to choose system-wide parameters. These parameters could even be inaccessible due to limited permissions on some systems. This was not the case with our colleagues, as they were able to change it.

    Hi Alexandru, thank you for taking the time to submit this suggestion. This is an interesting request on this use case. While I understand the need to change the langauge profile, I would like to better understanding of this use case. Is the request to allow a CPD user to change the langauge within CPD that is different than what is set at their broswer level? So for example, the browser is set to use English-UK, but the user wants to use CPD displaying French? Is this example correct, if so how often does this occur where the end-users broswer is not set to their preferred lanuage and why is not set to their preferred lanuage?
