IBM Data and AI RegTech Ideas Portal

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 / Dashboard: allow hiding of Worflow Tabs

When users don't have access to Workflow, the Tabs "My Taks", "Subscription Tasks" and "Oversight Tasks" are empty and cause confusion for the users. Please add the capability that these tabs can be disabled for a specific Dashboard in the Dasboard configuration.

    We have a need to hide / disable the Out-Of-The-Box "My Tasks" and "My Subscription tasks" tabs. The use cases that we have are –

    1. My Tasks tab does not respect the security RUles. We have group based assignments/subscriptions to allow for delegate functionality but we have some access controls put in place based on Org-Role based security and security Rules to restrict the users from accessing certain tasks. While un-authorised users are not allowed to access the tasks (system throws an error when user clicks on an un-authorised task), it still causes a lot of usability and user-training issues like unnecesary cluttering of the my tasks page.

    2. We would to like build our own mechanism (may be notifications or something else) to allow the users to access their workflow tasks - A manager's Exec. Assistant might want to go into the system and progress a workflow on behalf of the manager, who is the Responsible person.

    Thank you.

    We are having the use case that the "My Tasks" and the "Oversight Tasks" tabs are being used, but not the "Subscription Tasks" (as we are not using the subscriber role). For the endusers it would be less confusing if we were able to disable/hide the "Subscription Tasks" tab.
