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

Post 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 notification 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 which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

[TFUI] Configure default sorting in Grid Views

Currently in a Grid View, the object instances are sorted by default by the Name field in an ascending order. In an embedded Grid, the default sorting can be configured to meet ones needs. This is not possible in a Grid View. Users have to apply their sorting every time manually. It would be quite a benefit for the usability if the default sorting in a Grid View could be configured same way as in an embedded grid.

Use Cases:

  • sorting by Due Date
  • sorting by Last Creation Date
  • sorting by a reference string for a logical grouping of data
