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,
Post an idea
Upvote ideas and add comments to ideas that matter most to you
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.

RDi should bring me to source of Serviceprogram procedure
Within RDi I can directly go to the source of a Copy Book (/copy or /include) and within RDi 18.104.22.168 I even can see that source directly.
The same functionality is needed for procedures used in our code when they are somehow bonded to the program. Because of the /include RDi knows that there exists the procedure and what kind of parameters it needs and give back. Because of the Binding directory the compiler knows which Serviceprogram or Module he should bind. So RDi could use the information of the Binding Directory to look for the Serviceprogram / Module, look for the source and open it. When there is no source or RDi can't find it, it should bring a message.
Thise behavior is standard for many years for example in Visual Studio with c# (.Net at all) and it is really hard for Developers who want to move to RPG and therefore RDi that they have to look manually for source code.
This feature would increase the efficiency of the developers and the acceptance of developers who are new to IBM I and RDi.
