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.

Renaming an application should not break link to workbook in PAW

In order to utilize Workspace as a true self-service tool, my users will want to build out their own planning workspaces.  Sometimes, they will want to use direct cube entry while other times, they will want to use a standard template we've created for them.


For example, three tabs may consist of cube views and two tabs may consist of templates (applications).


As an admin, I may want to change the name of that template.  It could be for a number of reasons:


  • The template is mis-spelled and it's been sitting there incorrectly spelled for a year
  • Our report numbering system has changed and I need to change all the titles of the reports
  • The report name is too generic and I need to provide a better title for the report


If I change the name of that application, it will break the end-user's link to that template and their workspace will not render correctly.


We cannot roll out self-service capabilities without this functionality as we have far too many templates and far too many savvy users that will want to use the Workspace as IBM has designed it.  Although this problem also exists in TM1 Web, TM1 Web was not built as a self-service tool.
