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.

Hierarchy indentation in Picklists

Currently, TM1 picklists are only showing a flat list of elements. Users are constantly asking for a way to show the right hierarchy indentation they are used to see in a normal subset. There are cases when they want to expand/collapse members in a dimension and then finally pick the member they are interested in. Most common examples of using hierarchy indentation are:

  • SUBNM function in PAX

  • dimension selector in PAW

Ideally, TM1 picklists would show subset elements indented as part of the dimension hierarchy they belong to. My suggestion is around being able to modify existing picklist definition to something like:

'subset:[indent]:Dimension:Subset' ,

where we can specify the optional [indent] parameter. When this parameter is specified, the picklist would potentially show the same subset editor window from PAW. In the end, user still picks one element, but they are provided with the right hierarchy indentation while browsing through the list of elements.

Please see the image below for more clarity on TM1 picklists versus dimension selectors in PAW (or even SUBNM function in PAX).
