Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.

Provide ability to reuse task/gateways/events across blueprints without creating unique objects every time
Business Justification: Certain tasks/gateways/events are currently similar across multiple blueprints. (For example in Otd process there is a task ‘Perform Welcome Call’. The task is performed in a similar way in Norway, Spain, Sweden, Germany etc.)
When we create Otd process for all GEO’s, we should be able to reuse the same task(one object in DB) in these GEO’s and not create unique copies of this task. Problem is when a editor have to update this task with some information (like description is updated or systems are changed), Editor has to perform the same task in all 6 different blueprints instead of once.
Who would benefit from this IDEA?
All organizations who have variants specific to business units/GEO's etc. will benefit of this idea by saving lot of time and reducing redundancy
