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):

Snapshot Process Review & Approval enhancement

currently in our business for process owners to approve documents we use the snapshot review and approval tool. This can be very time consuming when a process owner has multiple process maps as we have to create a snapshot of each map individually. The reporting of the back of this is also nil, blueworks is unable to pull through what has been approved and what is pending. or you can only see it for the ones that you have sent as an individual, so unaware of what other spaces look like. Proposal, could a snapshot be taken of a full space, so all maps in space can be sent using the review and approval tool? this would save time by sending all through at once (Some spaces have over 50 maps in) - if this could be done, then editors can snapshot the space and blueworks would send to the license holder all maps individually for review. For a report to be able to pull everything that has been approved by snapshot, so we can report on what is not approved against what is approved - currently you have to click on individual blueprints in spaces and review work history to see the status

    Hi Emily,

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

    Thanks!
