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,
Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
New UI - Criticality to allow for 'Not Defined' or 'Not Applicable'
On some objects it is meaningless to define criticality, or at least meaningless when only having fields on that object available for the rule
e.g. Action object may not have a RAG, because the RAG is defined on the parent issue
e.g. Test Plan does not hold a field that could represent criticality, but the parent Control might define how critical the Test Plan execution is
e.g. Waivers might reviewed annually with all reviews of equal importance
At it's simplest, being able to allocate 'Not Defined' or 'Not Applicable' (showing as either white or a light neutral colour), would allow us to show that there was no measure of criticality for these tasks. At the moment we can't choose blank as entry is mandatory, and we don't want to choose Low or Medium because this implies a measure of criticality has been calculated.
The ability to base criticality on parent objects may be a useful way to reduce the use of such artifical criticality.
