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.

Hide the criticality and the due date field for Workflows

The criticality and the due date fields are not always used by the customer. There is no way to hide these fields because when they appear on the UI they confuse the end user. And this confusion actually hurts the zero training UI stance of OpenPages.

These fields are visible on Workflow panel on task views and also visible in the 'My Tasks', 'Subscription Tasks' & 'Oversight Tasks' tabs.

There should be a way to hide these fields.

    Workflow Task/Assignments are usually used for many objects or activities, the criticality and the due date for the task provide a way to convey important and timeliness of the task compared to others (across all type of objects/activities)


    Today we only offer to have 4 value (low, Medium, High, Critical), we should probably add on the label: Not applicable to handle some corner cases where its actually not really relevant compared to other tasks.

    Due Date

    Now, if we hide due dates, how do we convey, this notion of Overdue, Due soon, timeliness of the task?

    Is it ok to have tasks with no due dates, even lose, of far in the future due dates? Are these expected to be completed at one point?
