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.

Allow precision values for Custom numeric dropdown

IBM Blueworks live allows users to define a custom numeric property . However there is no specification on the precision of the property . Currently the platform allows users to enter 9 digit long number. We have a business requirement that needs users to enter a number only upto 2 decimal places. ( we are presently managing this via a tool tip message that asks users to enter a value only upto 2 decimal places ) However , it would be useful if an Admin could control the precision value of a ‘number property’ ( eg . restricting it to custom number of decimal places ) This would prove to be advantageous for processes that involve mathematically important properties that need to have a define degree of numerical precision. Eg : time values , Quantitatively significant variables in finance etc.

    We accept the request, but don't have a target timeline at this time. We will update this Idea when that changes.

    Thanks again!
