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.

PAW - Share private subsets between users

(See attached file for more information)


Idea Details: Use a real-life scenario to explain the problem statement/pain points,

End-users use private subsets all the time. For example, they track the progress of their top products by saving them into a subset and use that subset into many views. Additionally, they can aggregate that subset through ‘subset calculation’.

The issue however is that they can’t share views that use private subsets with other users (by saving the view into PAW shared folders). Indeed, since the receiving user doesn’t have the private subset, the view will appear corrupted to that user


State your current workaround

They will have to rework their view so that there’s no reference to that subset. Alternatively, they ask the receiving user to create a subset with same name and content.

Both workarounds are time consuming

State any proposed solution

Ideally the receiving user should be able to read the private subset of the source user.

Alternatively, when the source user saves the view into the shared folders, he/she could have a tickbox option that propose to save the view using static copy of subsets


State the benefits/value this idea has, state # of users impacted and how often are they impacted)

This enhancement will significantly boost the ability for users to engage in collaborative work within the software.
