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):

    Closing this RFE as it is a duplicate of RFE# 89156 & 124247.

    Thanks for your request! We do intend to add the ability to automatically kick-off workflows based on a date, although we don't envision Blueworks Live enforcing a review (if the user is a participant in the governance workflow, they will be notified that their review is required). At this time we don't know when we might be able to deliver this functionality, but when we get closer to planning it we will update the relevant RFEs with more detail. This request has already been submitted by other customers so I am going to reject this RFE as a duplicate and refer you to those existing RFE's so can vote for them and subscribe to updates on them.
