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.

Tagging Enhancement

Right now we do not currently have the ability to make tags preferred. The only option right now is "Only visible when used."

Would also like visibility to all tags when conducting a search, not just those on items you have access to see.

    Thanks for your request, Amanda! We agree that making it easier to standardize tags would be helpful. So we'll plan on making them work similarly to other glossary properties (enable other visibility settings, enable import, enable type-ahead/autocompletion when adding tags, etc.). In terms of the search, we agree that it would be useful to have some kind of Tag Cloud, so that users could see how tags are being used across the account. However, given the permissions model in Blueworks Live we don't ever envision a Search that would allow a user to see artifacts (or the names of artifacts) that they do not have permission to see.

    We are using tags for our Lines of Business classifications and need to keep these standard. This enhancement would help drive that standardization and allow better searching for blueprint candidates in our results.
