IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

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.

Display custom attribute with titles for Value and Description

Display custom attribute with titles for Value and Description. Without titles, it is hard for users to figure out which is value and which is description of the value.

    Hi Weiren - you're referring to our Reference Data Management capabilities, correct? Today, we show the Code and Value within the ui as the [Code] - [Value]. Once you click on that item, you will see the Description as an attribute on that value. I've attached a screenshot of the UI here. The description is very clearly separate from the code and value. Is the issue you've raised here about how we list [Code] - [Value]?

    Let's take an example that you have defined data as show in the following table format. When "Blue/Red" and "Yellow/Black" are presented to user for selection, there is no title of "Description,/Value", so a user have no idea, for example, if Yellow is a Value or Description?

    Hi - I'm not quite sure what you mean by this feedback. Can you provide more information or send over a picture of what you're thinking, so I can imagine what your proposing?
