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.
Add the possibility to jump to common pattern nodes/node groups (e. g. "Please enter your customer number/adress/phone number") from anywhere in the dialog flow and dynamically jump back, based on where you came from.
This could speed up dialog development, especially for bigger chatbots, where you have to build these common nodes multiple times, because right now you can only have one node where you jump back to. These common nodes/groups of nodes should be able to take in jumps from anywhere in the dialog tree and after they handled whatever they are supposed to do, route the dialog flow back to the place, where the original jump came from.
Additionally, this would also make the bot more maintainable, because you only need to define these nodes once and if you need to change something, only need to change it in one place.
