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.

It is clearly a very poor user experience to have to then reselect the same cost centre, account and time period that they already selected when they click the Action Button. It is also potentially error prone, and users will inevitably review the figures for one cost centre and then end up running the process from the Action Button for a different cost centre.
Synchronise PAW Action Button Process Parameters with Sheet Context
It would be helpful to be able to synchronise the process parameters supplied to a process by an action button with the context of the sheet in which the button is located. Example: a sheet where the user selects a plan version and reporting unit ...
