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.

Simplified User selection (CCM_USER web type)

We have been using a Change customization for 10+ years, which basically displays an additional ("me") button next the existing icon for a CCM_USER control. On selection this control would automatically add the current user's id as attribute value.
I would propose to make this customization a standard feature .. and attached the source code.

    For recording keeping, the previous attributes were:

    It seems like a nice and easy to include feature, however we haven't seen such a need in the user community.
    I would suggest to gauge interest level in the community as a way to endorse this
    I would encourage to share this idea in the google groups and see if this has enough votes?
