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.

Enable Filters on Hierarchies in Persona UI, and Ability to control Hierarchies in a Workflow

Problem Statement1: As shown below, Currently the view for Hierarchies shows all Categories selected for a given part, particularly when there are multiple categories, it is very difficult for users to select the correct hierarchy to delete.

Proposed Solution: Need a flag / filter so that right hand pane shows only the categories that are from the selected hierarchy.

There they me other users who need to see all the categories (so its best to have this configurable.

Problem Statement2: Currently Workflows does not allow to configure selective categories to be editable in a collaboration area:

Users find it very difficult as all Categories / hierarchies will be visible.

Solution developers need to build validation to avoid users from accidentally modifying specific categories.

In case of Poly, we have 5 categories, and Users can only assign to 2 of them and others are system controlled, as the UI does not provide these controls we have spent a lot of consulting hours to build these validation (yet this is not intuitive and cumbersome for users).

Proposed Solution: As part of Attribute collection or something similar we should be able to indicate what Hierarchy mapping can be modified in a given workflow.
