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.

Using distinct subsets and/or dimension attributes on distinct views on a same tab/book

Customer has a book with two views, one is a exploration, the other is a bar graph.

Both this views are using the same cube and dimensions. A dimension (Region) has as its names/codes values are MS1, MS2, MG1, MG2 and so on. Captions for these elements are 'Mato Grosso 1', 'Mato Grosso 2', 'Minas Gerais 1', 'Minas Gerais 2'.

He uses this dimension as a filter to both these views. On exploration view, he wants to see the full caption, I mean, he wants to see 'MS1 - Mato Grosso 1'. On the bar graph, he wants to see just MS1, as it results in much better and clean view. He then creates two subsets, one using name+captions, other with just the name.

As soon you select other values on the Region Filter, however, as the dimensions on both views are synced, both distinct subsets used on the exploration and the bar chart are lost. You have no way to show distinct subsets on distinct charts.

Customer of course wants this functionality, which looks real relevant for many others.

Thanks for your time

    Promoted to future consideration on the Planning Analytics roadmap. We are already considering how to make the book synchronization model more flexible. This would include options to determine what synchronization between widgets for each dimension.
