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 ideasibm@us.ibm.com for resolution.

For more information about IBM's Ideas program visit ibm.com/ideas.

Allow a ClearQuest administrator to turn off Template functionality

A template can used by ClearQuest (9.0.1.4) users to save commonly entered data and then import that data when creating a new record of the same type, which saves them time.

Allow a CQ administrator to turn off templates for a specified record type, or possibly prevent certain fields from being added to the template.

    A preliminary evaluation of this request indicates that it is consistent with our business strategy. Further evaluation of this RFE is underway.

    Often a child record is specific to the parent it is linked to. If that child record gets inadvertantly linked to other parent records, there can be confusion and rework. All CQ administrators would benefit from this.

    Thanks for the enhancement request. We need more information. What's the business impact? How many users would benefit?
