IBM Power Ideas Portal

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 this portal to enhance a Power 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 and add comments to 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 Power teams 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 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.

WQ document Report Heading

Db2 Web Query is used to make both single and compound reports. Compound reports are made by opening a document and adding multiple reports. Current Db2 Web Query behavior of reports contained within a document fail to perform as designed in InfoAssist. Would be helpful to have them work as originally designed with working Table of Contents, Headings, Totals and Traffic lighting as originally specified. Especially when such reports will be emailed (via Report Broker/Scheduler) to recipients.

Use Case:

Wish to create a Document containing a report with table of contents and multiple sections. InfoAssist allows insert EXISTING report inside a document. In Document, User clicks table of contents to move to different data grouping in the report. The heading said "Audio" but when user clicks grouping "Cameras", the data changes to Cameras, but the heading still says Audio. User is confused due to mix-up on heading. Make heading change with data selected. Make sure report features seen in InfoAssist Designer all work inside document after Insert Existing report.
