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

Start by posting 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 a 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.

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to for resolution.

Admins to configure the default record view for all users to be either List View, Custom List View or Tabbed View

• Currently in ClearQuest, there are 3 types ways to view a record – List View, Custom List View and Tabbed View. Tabbed View is the default view for all our users and user can set in their preferences to make the custom list view as default or toggle between list view and tabbed view.
• We would like to have a feature, where ClearQuest admins can set the default view as either Custom List View or Tabbed View for all users. Admins will customize the fields that needs to be on the List View for every record type and that should be the default view when Custom List View is chosen as the default for all users.
• The view set as default by admins (List View, Custom List View or Tabbed View) should be default view for Submit and Display forms for all record types
• For users who want to use a record view other than the one set as default, they should have an option in user preferences to choose a different one.
• For users should also a have a easy way to switch between record views using a button for each record type

Idea priority Urgent

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.
