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.

Wrap Text in PAW Cube view,

If I add a cube view to workspace with string text, currently data is being truncated even with relatively short text length, approx. 100 characters or more at font size 12. See the attached document which illustrates the issue

    It is simply not acceptable to discount this request. There are many cases where PAW could be used for applications like CAPEX approvals, Compliance recording etc where some length of text responses may be required. Ideally I'd like to see further formatting ability within text cells as is available in some competitive products.

    Do we want PA/PAW to be a player in the current market or do we want the developers life to be easy ? I appreciate what you are saying Stuart, but agree with comment on Feb 5th that this is an incorrect design, rather than an incorrect requirement.

    If cells can handle long strings, which they can, then we need at least some basic format controls. Some of this was possible in Excel based interfaces, but we want to move forward.

    It's hard to believe that in a world of analytics, consideration for commentary presented properly on a dashboard is not under consideration. Given the audiences of most dashboards the concepts of big data analysis and engagement with your customer base using word clouds and commentary on a proper RAG basis is paramount. Proper commentary handling (including word wrap) presentation should be high on the list. Also word wrapping on column is a real issue, and should be encompassed within this model, as it's then up to the dashboard designers to make them look good, rather than finding ways around Planning Analytics limitations.

    Changed status to 'Not Under Consideration'. Text wrapping can have a very large impact on the cubeviewer as we now need to consider a variable row height. Row height is used to determine how much data should be pulled from the cube to present in Workspace. Users could enter string values that impact data visibility in the cubeviewer.

    We current address this challenge using a tooltip on the cell to display the full string.

    Seems more like an issue with the implementation of text strings in the exploration view than an enhancement as text is displayed fully in the cell when editing the contents.
