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.

Sorting IGC searches

Sorting IGC searches

Currently the result of IGC searches is displayed in the following order: By type of asset, then by type of search then by alphabetical order without prioritization according to the number of words found in a result.
We want the result set of an IGC search to be sorted differently; in the following order:
1. Results that match exactly (Exact match)
2. The results that begin with the entire chain searched and sorted alphabetically (start with).
3. The results that contain the entire search string and sorted alphabetically (Contains).
4. All other results sorted by:
1st: descending order of the number of words found, then in alphabetical order.
2nd: by rank of the field found
3rd: in alphabetical order

Our main problem is that the current sort does not take into account the relevance on the number of found word.
