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.

More Flexible PAW Exploration Formatting

I feel that the current formatting options for an exploration in Workspace are limited and do not allow the creation of formatted financial views/statements.

The current conditional formatting and the "new" row header format do not provide the flexibility that would be required. Please see these screenshots:

  1. The rows I'd like to format are these major totals (in yellow)

  2. Conditional Format editor

  3. Result of conditional formatting - only the values cells are formatted and not the row header. I need to format both.

  4. Using "new" row header format, as per your link - this format all row headers

I need to be able to format the row header and cell of the row to highlight specific totals - currently this cannot be done.

It has been mentioned in the past that attribute based formatting was on the road map, is this still the case?


  1. Can the conditional formatting logic be applied to row/column headers and not just data cells i.e. an additional switch?

  2. Attribute based formatting, so you can select the Row headers as a whole and then choose to format based on the value of an attribute and apply that format to data cells and/or headers.
