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.

Leverage change history in new UI

Although sensibly de-prioritised, change history is an important future addition to the new UI. 

This request focuses on how change history could be better presented (the current standard UI change history format is not easy to read).

Option 1. Each field has an icon in one of the corners of the field, which when clicked, opens up a drop down / pop up that says what the previous values were, and when they were changed. (see attachment for a rough visualisation)

Option 2. Ability to then select all changes that happened at the same time as a change the user clicks on - this would give similar data to the current UI, but filtered to a specific date/time and ideally formatted more clearly.

Option 3. Charts can be configured to show the change in a field's value over time, utlisiing change history to gather the data for the (time series) chart

Option 4 (added July 2019) Allow the user to select to view change history on the same Task views they currently use. When this option is selected and date selector or slider bar is presented to them. By sliding the bar or selecting one of the highlighted date/times, the user is presented with original / revised values in the field. This allows them to view change history in the same context as they normally view their data.

TASK Focused UI: Change History

Can the ‘Change history’ button be brought back for Task UI to detail the recent changes made by the end users. This is used by our entire 2nd Line of Defence as well as pockets in other areas. In order to get them using TASK UI, it would be great...
