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.

"Store" instead of "Save" when Working with Streams from a C&DS Repository

Currently when a user retrieves an IBM SPSS Modeler Stream from an IBM SPSS C&DS Repository, the default behavior of the user is to save the file on the local disk while working on the file. This is due to default behavior of the Modeler client; the "Save" button on the toolbar will save the file to the local file system and the keyboard shortcut CTRL+S does the same. To store the stream in the repository, the user has to select "File | Store | Store as Stream".
I would like to see the default behavior changed, when working with a stream that was retrieved from a repository. The "Save" button on the on the toolbar should be replaced by a "Store in Repository" button and the keyboard shortcut CTRL+S should store the file to the repository rather than to the local file system.
Alternatively, allow the stream to be saved in a temporary location on the local file system and then have a function that requests the user to store the stream to the repository when closing the stream.
