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.

Goals are stuck in edit mode - eeek!

Why is it that the goals are stuck in edit mode? I can edit the Description area in Space Details and then view the text in display mode. However, goals only display in edit mode. It is ideal to see the full text of the goal after entry. I'm not sure if you need to add an edit widget in here to toggle editing on and off or what, but this the viewing of goals currently is suboptimal.

    Here are my clarifications -
    When I refer to edit, what I mean is that I am in 'edit' mode and can make a change to the goal. However, if I want to see the entire goal I cannot, because it only displays in edit mode. I wish goals would display like the Space description, because I can edit it, but then when I'm done editing, it will display for viewing in it's entirety as if it were read only.
    I would recommend recreating this and to do so follow these steps:
    1, Create a new space
    2, Add a space description (notice how you can edit, but then also view the entire description)
    3, Add a goal or two (notice you only have edit capabilities, and if you want to see the entire goal, you cannot, because it doesn't show. Only one section of the goal shows at a time.)
