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.

Client Login Server Address no longer should default to last value.

Introduced in V7.1, the client log in for web mode no longer requires a server value entered. If you are using more than one web server than the user has to pick the right one in order to log in. Synergy is smart enough to know which one to use. So, I suggest that you load up the list box for all the past "valid" values but default the line to "nothing" and let Synergy determine the correct server if the user so chooses Synergy to do that for them (which they most likely will always do. Also, it makes things easier for new users if that line is in the default state so you don't have to tell them what to enter when logging into different web servers.
