  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.

Multi Select Option for PAW

The current dimension element selector only allow users to select a single element from a dimension but no option to select multiple elements and see aggregated data on the fly. The MDX based calculation(Summerized) option is not as intuitive as a user would like to see. Further this become difficult to implement if user is interacting with a chart.

    This would be a great feature, rows and header calcs are a workaround, but on the fly selections of multiple values and aggregation of these is a neat feature to have.

    IBM Team, this is a real bummer.

    Here's the scenario: I want to provide a multi-select selector widget that will allow the user to select multiple members for a pre-formatted report that we as admins have built for them. The user should be able to select five different members and allow reports to filter based off of those five members. This is now standard functionality within Analytics tools. It is unrealistic to assume that by providing user-defined calcs, it's going to solve all aggregation issues. We limit the usability of PA by not attacking this one.

    Why is this maked as will not implement when Paul Glennon demoed this exact capability yesterday during the online conference?

    Essentially the feature is now there and available! (which is great). It is just that it is available via the "add calculation" feature and so needs to be initiated on row of column set and then dragged to the context. All this ER represents is an easer and more intuitive way to achieve the same result. Now that the capability exists it would seem the very definition of a quick win to allow an alternative way to create an aggregate calculation via multi-select of elements on context dimensions and ceate the calculated member automatically in the background.

    At this point there is no intention to implement this feature. Adhoc aggregation capabilities have been implemented using the calculation feature.

Multi-select elements on point of view dimensions

In Workspace, PAX & TM1 Web I would like to be able to multi-select elements in the Title/Context/Filter/Perspective/Point of View dimensions. The server should sum the selected elements on-the-fly (like a UDC) and display the result in the view.
