IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

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.

Change variables on the fly for objects added to sheet in PAW

When you add a cube cell to a PAW workbook using "Add to Sheet" function, you are currently unable to change the parameters / elements. We had to always re-create the object (after changing the parameters from the cube view), and then re-format, re-arrange on screen -- and all these steps are very time consuming and inefficient. Due to this inefficiency, I am reluctant to use this function despite its importance to create a modern dashboard.

In the new PAW, there is a Field function which can be used to change parameters for charts - perhaps we can use something similar?

    Changed status to future consideration. We will consider using the fields panel to allow cube views and single cell widgets to be updated.

    Please note that the single cell widget does support synchronization to adjust the current intersection being displayed. The cube referenced by the cube viewer or single cell widget cannot be changed without deleting and recreating the widget. We are also investigating functionality to change the object displayed in widgets without deleting and recreating the widget.
