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):

Divide attachment

Hi team,
When I map process on IBM BW, I need to upload and review some documents at Attachment tab on IBM BW.
However, there are many files, it makes me crazy when I look for some files there.
So I suggest that I can sort as name and type of file or create category name to divide kind of type of attachment (the same Post)
Many thanks

    Thanks for your request! We currently have no plans to provide sorting functionality for file attachments on the attachment tab of Activities. We have never heard of anybody attaching so many files to an activity that they would need to be able to sort them. Can you share some more info about how many files you typically attach to a process activity, and what these files are so that we could better understand your use case?
    Account Admins have the ability to sort and view file attachments in a variety of different ways on the File Management tab of the Admin console because they need to periodically clean up old and unused files from their accounts.
