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 email@example.com for resolution.

The Release Mappings menu for the RTC integration with Release could use a lot of improvement. Currently the mappings section is hard to use and unclear once a mapping selection has been made. The Mappings seem to be very slow to load when there are many RTC queries. If there is a large list of selection items in either the left box or right box (or both selection boxes) you have to do a lot of scrolling in order to determine which selected items are mapped to each other. If you have many mapping pairs then you have to select each item in one box, and scroll thru all of the items in the other box to find what its mapped to, if its mapped to anything. This is a very user-unfriendly process to try to understand what is or isn't mapped.
One suggestion would be to provide a list of mapped items outside of the boxes once a mapping selection has been made. This would give the user a quick glance to understand exactly what is mapped for that mapping section. Also the only save button is at the very bottom of the entire view. Once you make a mapping selection the user can't really tell if that mapping was saved or not. Are you supposed to make one selection, scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to save, then scroll back up and make another mapping selection? Again that is very user unfriendly.
