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.

Enable JavaScript editor for JS web or server files

There should be an editor for uploaded JavaScript files so when the JS file needs to change, we could open the wanted artifact and just change the code.

It could be a new type of artifact, or you can leave JS file as Web or Server File as it is now and just add the ability to edit the file if it has "js" extension, but just remove the need to download, change and re-upload the file.

Idea Priority Medium
Use Case
The coach views can sometimes share same JavaScript code. It is a good practice to extract that JS code into JS file, upload that JS file as Web File and reference that JS file in Included Scripts (in Behavior). When code in JS file needs to change, we need to download the file, change it and re-upload it. It would be nice to have the ability to edit JS file. Also, it would be nice to have some kind of link in Included Scripts that leads to referenced JS file.
