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.

Manage catalog/hierarchy views

"Hierarchy and Catalog views can be customized to personalize how item attributes are presented to a user" (Infocenter)

Currently, in Single-edit or multi-edit screen, users can see all views configured/available. It is not a problem from Security/Access right point of view but it is a problem of UI since views should be aligned with user profile.

So we would like to improve customization capability for Views :
- Hide/Remove "System Default"
- Define catalog default view and always select this one by default for a new user (before user switch to another available view)
- For a container (Hierarchy or Catalog), define a list of view to display for a specific group of users (defined by a "role" for example)

As a result, it would be possible to define one single view for a specific group of user (and make sure they cannot switch to another view).

Such UI customization would make it easier is based on user profile.
