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.

Multiple SDU models per Collection

in my domain of business, clients put different kind and format of documents in the same collection. We need the possibility to have multiple SDU models in the same collection. Every SDU model get applied to a specific set of files identified by a filename/format filter.

    My customer keeps ALL their documents in one document management system.  Includes policys, procedures, emails, spreadsheets, presentations, photos, scanned documents, magazines, and more.  The scanned documents come from all over the place.  Some document types are common and highly structured, others are very free form.

    For example the client will create one collection for a specific brand of equipment (haul truck). In the collection, you will have different kind of PDF files (manuals, diagrams, specifications, ....), all kind of reports in Word, Excel or Power Point format.


    The client have access only to four collections in the Pilot phase, but as well, the client want to group the documents by asset class.

    Thank you for submitting this idea. To understand better your client's situation and use case, can you tell us what can of different documents are put in the same collection, and why your client doesn't have multiple collections (one for each type of document)?
