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.

Build Forge Options menus overlay the Name column

Build Forge Options menus overlay the Name column making it extremely difficult to determine which Name has been chosen.

Use Case
For example, hover on a Variable and the "Variable Options" menu displays, however, you can't tell which Variable you are acting on. The menu is on top of the list of Names. See attached. This is true for all menus as far as I know.

    Thank you for raise the problem. We will give a solution in BuildForge 8.0 release set. The expected fix plan is to move the options menu to the left of the window in order to not overlay the name.
