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 portal, please send email describing the issue to for resolution. For more information about IBM's Ideas program visit

Shorten the Invitation URL for member invitation from Consumer Org in Portal

During upgrade from v2018 to v10 , we have found an issue where the Invitation URL users recieve in Outlook email is more then 2084 chars long, which cause the link to not open. This issue is applicable to users with Outlook Client and where the user company has implemented SafeLinks with MS O365. So, the safelink feature adds more characters to original URL. post testing , we found this issue only happened after upgrade to v10 upgrade where the URL is is long by around 200 chars as compared to v10. IBM Developer mentioned this is due increased length of activation token which is further due new development features in v10.
