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.

(ID and) Folder path take up a disproportionately large part of the grid view

(ID and) Folder path take up a disproportionately large part of the grid view, reducing the uability / limiting the number of displayed fields. Better text wrap of folder path would make this much better.

    Hi John

    I've included 3 examples

    1) A grid view where folder path doesn't show at all (we would rather it was there and searchable, but at least it shows how really good formatting looks

    2) An example of an embedded grid view where the folder path is short. Again this looks good

    3) An example of a longer folder path (of which we have plenty). The folder path is not shown completely, yet still takes up a disproportionate amount of what we see. This is compunded by the poor grid view wrapping raised in another ticket (may be a Case or an RFE, I can't recall)


    The problem as I see it, is that folder paths aren't text wrapping. Introducing text wrapping for folder paths, breaking each line on a suitable '>' would I'm sure be a massive improvement, both in formatting and allowing us to see the whole folder path
