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.

Video capture and voice over capabilities for the Playback Mode

It would be nice to have the capabilities of recording or capturing the flow in the Playback mode. Also, it would be nice to be able to record a voice over as well for the flows captured.

    You can now embed Youtube, Vimeo, or Daily Motion videos into your textual documentation, including the documentation associated with your playbacks. Hope this helps!

    Thanks for your request, Carren! While we love the idea, there are so many great video capture tools out there already in the marketplace..... we don't envision building video capture technology into Blueworks Live. You can certainly use other tools to record the playback and you could link to the recording from the Doc tab so that users could easily play the recording when viewing the process diagram or playback. However, we think that the ability to record voiceover narration and to play it back when stepping through the process would be a great addition to the Playback feature so we will add that to our long term roadmap!
