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.

Communicate truncated reports

The setting for Data display row limit (https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/planning-analytics/2.0.0?topic=settings-data-display-row-limit) applies to Exploration View, Quick Report, and list view. It also affects Custom Report. While this is a very useful feature, in case of Quick Report and Custom Report, the user is not notified at all when the limit is reached and no more rows are generated. This is already affecting users, and it is not extremely easy to see if a report was potentially truncated. Our users do not expec the Reports to be incomplete. Any hugher limit only hides the problem, and especially someone who created a report witha very high amount of rows does not expect truncated reports.


In Quick Report, the user is offered to load all items with a button.

A similar feature should be made available for Quick Report and Custom Report.


On generation, the user could be warned by a message box that the defined row limit applies (the default value is 500 rows) and the report will be truncated. The user should then be able to either

a) abort the report generation,

b) continue with the limit,

c) or ignore the limit at their own risk.


Alternatively, if the report was truncated due to the limit, the last line of the report should mention that the limit had been reached and that more data was available at the time of creation.
