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.

Customize User Invitation Wording

Need to be able to customize the Blueworks Live user invitation wording. The current message states that you should log in with your email address. We use SSO, so the user actually needs to log in with their “US Domain ID & password”, which are internal user IDs. We'd also rather provide them with a direct URL to the SSO/JIT webpage for the account instead of the www.blueworkslive.com link – which is no longer correct either.

Idea Priority Medium
Use Case
1. Admin invites new user to BwL for an Editor or Contributor license. 2. BwL generates an email invitation to the new user telling them to "log in with your email address." 3. After being sent to Blueworks Live login page and then redirected, user eventually gets to our internal SSO page where we DON'T use emails. 4. User is confused and sends email to admin with questions. Correct option: Admin has customized the email invitation to provide proper instructions for logging into BwL on SSO page and provides link directly to internal SSO page.

    Thanks for your request, Jeff! We agree that customizable invitations would be great and have them on the roadmap.....at this point we don't have a plan for when we might deliver them. However, I think that in the short term we are going to go ahead and improve the text and links on the message for SSO accounts. We'll reach out to let you know when we tackle that improvement.

    As SSO users, as well, we agree with the need for this enhancement.
    We see users "going the long way around" to login via SSO (following the link sent by IBM, getting redirected, logging in, then saving the (incorrect) URL appearing on their browser.)
    Sadly, not all users are savvy with browsers and have to be trained on how to update the URL field of a favorite.
