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.

Change design for Calculations on Locked Objects

Currently there is no exception for calculations on locked objects, meaning thy system tries to execute calculations on locked objects, resulting in error messages to the users (and errors showing on the calculation).

This is the request:

  1. Calculations should not run on locked objects

  2. When an object is unlocked, the calculation should run (this should be a feature that can be enabled / disabled per object in the registry - e.g. Run Calculations on Unlock - True/False)

A nice to have feature:

Implement the ability to run calculations on selected objects in the Grid View (similar to Bulk Update, but with the ability to select a calculation to run)

    Hi John, there is an Applicability on the Calcs that should prevent it from running and you could use that to prevent it running on locked objects - but the Applicability does not work. I believe that is a defect and have raised TS006189154. Thanks, Adam.
