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.

Increase Word Document Information (Approval table and cover)

We are using "Process App" to launch process validation workflows.
We can see the approval status in the "Work History" of each blueprint (Click on "Select a view or action for this process" > "View Work History")
We would like to include in our Word document (Click on "Select a view or action for this process" > "Export to word")), an “approval table” with the information of who has approved the document and when. We would like to have it at the end of the document and to have the following information (on a table would be perfect): last editor name and business unit, date of workflow launched (last date of edition), approver name and business unit and date of approval. (We're including the “Business Unit" of each user in the “Account Settings” tab).
We want also to add a cover to the Word Document, with our Company details.

    Thanks for the request, Daniel! We love the idea of adding the approval table to the Word export and we will consider adding that in some future release. We'll also put some thought into how to make the cover page customizable in order to make that feature useful for all of our customers.
