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.

UUCD 7 UI has a lot of white space and less information can fit in a window

We're updating from UCD 6.2 to 7.1. The UI has changed a lot and we are still getting used to it, but there are a few things worth mentioning. In this case it's about how much information can fit in a window. Not as much as in 6.2!

I think the worst problem is the tables. I've already filed a ticket/RFE for the agents table which has more specific problems, but in general all of the tables have a lot of white space.

I've attached a screenshot showing the 6.2 UI (on the left) and the 7.1 UI.
I can easily get 10 rows in 6.2 at a large font and have the window larger to fit 10 rows at a smaller font in the 7.1 UI. Of course, I prefer the larger font.

There is a clear difference in the row heights. Column widths are bad too. The width of the Tags column in 7.1 doesn't shrink to fit the window and it can be wider than the column with the app name as seen in my snapshot.

I do like some of the changes. Having all of the actions in a standard popup is nice (but I'd prefer it on the left). It's also very great that it is easier to select the teams when creating a new application or component.

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