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.

Make it more clear when a local file upload has failed in Watson Knowledge Catalog

During one of our testfests, local file upload was failing for everyone because of a regional configuration problem. During this time, several people at first thought their asset had uploaded because the error appears on the Failed tab which is not shown. When they couldn't find their asset, they then opened the Failed tab to see that the upload failed.

I think we used to also display an alert each time an asset upload succeeded/failed, but then later removed it because when uploading multiple assets, the alerts would come in rapid succession which was confusing/disconcerting.

This was discussed in the [3] back in June 2018 and it was acknowledged that this area needs to be redesigned, but since is not a top priority, Design will not have time to work on it. Adding it here so it will be reconsidered in the future.
