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.

Please use the following category to raise ideas for these offerings for all environments (traditional on premises, containers, on cloud):

Blueworks space/diagram creator history

System: Blueworks Live
Actor: All Blueworks Live users
Currently, the history of who created a space or a diagram is lost as soon as another person edits the space or the diagram. The history of who created the space/diagram is important to us because if there are questions on the process, we don't know who to talk to about their diagram. Administrators have also experienced issues with not having this history because we have needed to move diagrams to their proper space and we don't know who the diagram creator is.

    Thanks for your request Amy! Per our prior comment, this information is available today via the Excel export. But we recognize that's not ideal and so we'd like to make that information accessible within the user interface. Thanks!

    Thanks for your request, Amy! The "Created Date" and the "Created By User" (as well as the Last Modified Date & Last Modified By User) are available on the "Items" tab of the excelSpace export for all of the artifacts (subspaces, blueprints, decisions, policies, process apps) within a space.

    While this may be of some use, there is an alternative way to obtain this history.

    You must be logged into BWL first, then in a separate tab run this:

    Users and administrators will get the detail appropriate for their access/space permissions.
