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.

Notification of timeouts via popup or connection indicator in PAx

Would like a more visual indication that you've been timed out from your connection in PAx as it's not easy to tell if you been disconnected. Perhaps a status indicator for when you are connected or disconnected in the menu, or at least a popup notification saying that you are either about to be disconnected or have already been disconnected.

    This idea is currently not under consideration. The idea can continue to receive votes and the IBM Planning Analytics team may reevaluate the idea at a later date.


    We are going to make the timeout period for Planning Analytics on Cloud configurable. We cannot check if the connection has timed out (doing this would prevent the timeout).

    I agree with another comment about it being a fix. This is pretty standard most all other applications that have timeouts.

    This should not be considered an enhancement - but a fix

    Hi currently users don’t have a good experience with this because they perceive the product as crashing unresponsive or losing their data. Solving this would improve the user experience and the perception of planning analytics.

    Thanks!
