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.

MDX Object Type for Picklists

Picklists are a powerful tool when designing front ends.

Currently we have to create a subset to hold an MDX expression to drive the user selection. As the complexity of the front-ends increase the volume of public subsets that need to be pre-created to manage the possible paths through the front end increase. Creating the subsets just to drive the picklists creates unrequired objects on the server, clutter for the users and the risk of breaking front ends through erroneous deletion.

Creating a subset to hold MDX to drive picklists creates a redundant object.

    Could be used to create cascading picklists without having to reference named subsets.

    If this is possible, we could make the MDX string dynamic with rules given the context of the picklist.
