Digital Business Automation Ideas

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

Start by posting 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 offering manager 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 notifications 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 that cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Sort all workpackages in Navigator worklist rather than sort each page separately

Currently in ICN v3.0.9 connecting to CM8 v8.6, sorting a worklist only happens on each page (for example 200 workpackages/page) separately from the rest of the worklist. This causes users to keep scrolling to next page to find the items they are looking for which impacts their productivity.

I suggest to change the sorting mechanism to sort the entire worklist instead of page by page. In this case when users click on the column header to sort on a specific column, the entire worklist is sorted and users won't need to keep navigating through all pages to find the items they are looking for.

Why is it useful?

By making this enhancement, users won't need to keep navigating through all pages to find the items they are looking for, hence will increase overall users' productivity especially when the worklist have multiple pages of workpackages.

Who would benefit from this idea? Content Navigator users that use the Work list feature
