IBM OpenPages with Watson 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.

Enhance Filters to support empty and not empty

It would be useful for User fields and Date fields to support the empty and not empty options on filter in the UI. This could also apply to other fields as well. There are a lot of times when filtering you want to be able to search not on a specif user or date, but know if that field does or doesn't contain a value, especially when using it in conjunction with other search criteria. These options would greatly enhance the filtering capabilities.

    yeah, easiest example I keep running into is "Show me all issues where a completion date was never filled in"

    I have to get it into fastmap to then filter.

    We need this functionality for us to search a field by NO value populated or is field Empty. Right now this is not available. we need this functionality for our analysis purpose. This will be very useful. Right now, we are getting all fields and put it in the excel and then filter it, this is time consuming. This will be a good enhancement and it will save time and increases the productivity.

    I agree. Need to be able to check if the field has value or not!
