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.

Allow System Name field to be set by calculation

When defining a calculation on an object that is auto-named, it is not possible to set the System Fields:Name. It is possible to define it, but it will not work (IBM support confirmed this is expected behavior and will create an APAR to prevent the System Fields:Name from being selectable in the Set Fields operation UI). There are instances where we may want to update the System Name field, and it would be ideal to do this in a calculation rather than a custom trigger. See Additional Details for the use-case scenario.
