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.

Workspace Blueworks Live
Created by Guest
Created on May 12, 2022

Allow different layouts in workspace to display full artifact name.

When displaying a workspace with a number of artifacts (process models, workspaces, decisions, etc.) that contain long names, those names are cut off no matter how much you zoom in or out. The only way to see the full name is to hover over the artifact for it to display or open it. Our naming conventions require a prefix that can sometimes push unique identifiers to the end of the name, which gets cut off in the workspace display. That will end up with a number of items that seem to have the same name since we can't see the categorization on the end. Provide the option to change the layout to show less columns of artifacts to allow the longer names to display without hovering over the artifact. If I need to see longer names, have a toggle at the top (similar to following/all/hierarchy on Spaces) to show as list or other options. Same could be done on Library Spaces & Processes screens.
