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):

Individual attachment size limit

This enhancement prevents reaching the available attachments space by loading too large attachments. It is useful especially for account admins, but all users will benefit as they will not be contacted by admin to remove too large attachments and replace with smaller ones.

It should work like that: when user is trying to load too large attachment (e.g., larger than 300kB) it will be stopped by the system and a pop up will appear telling the user that the size limit for any attachment is 300 kB and that the user should load a smaller one.

    Hi Meena,

    Yes, but the idea BWL1-I-559 was not so specific and this current idea has been already discussed with your colleague - Aditya Vijayaraghavan Sumathi. We have agreed that this will be implemented to my BWL account (as an individual RFE, I think) in the nearest future (preferably in March).

    Please let me know if you need any more information.

    best regards,

    Piotr Skrzycki
