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.

File Upload Status Notification - Add Succeeded Tab

This proposal is to add a Succeeded tab to the left hand side Upload Status panel to list all of the assets that were successfully loaded in the current session. This tab would list all assets that were loaded with a link that will take the user to the asset details page for that asset. This will allow users to easily keep track of what assets were loaded and quickly access them.

We got the following feedback from a customer via Satismeter:

"The upload status bar that pops up on the left side of the screen when the upload of the assets to the catalog is in progress seems to be too quick to notice, specially for the case where the file being uploaded is too small in size. Also, since there is a warning message in the pop-up indicating that if the person tries to get off the page while the upload is in progress the upload might fail; this warning can easily be missed in the existing scenario in which the pop-up lasts only for fraction of seconds."

By the time the status side panel closes, the upload has already succeeded or failed so the warning mentioned above no longer applies. However, when an asset successfully loads, an alert is displayed at the top of the screen to notify the user, and this alert can be easily missed as it only appears for several seconds. This is especially a problem when loading multiple assets at the same time as alerts can happen in rapid succession, leaving the user wondering what happened with their upload. 

Currently users have to go to the Recently Added tab or perform a search to find their loaded asset. If they don't find it there, they can open the Upload Status panel and check the Failed tab to see if the upload failed. Adding a Succeeded tab will provide users with an single place to easily locate and access the assets they have loaded into the catalog.
