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

AoC - Delete Package Member Rights for Shared Inboxes

Use case - Recipients/Ingestors of a package could be 5-10 people on a team. Once one of them downloads it, the package should be removed. However, a team could need 2-3 downloads before deleting. So then the team has to wait for package expiration for the package to be deleted. So why is it only the sender can delete?

    Discussed use cases in Slack. Yuriy/Anusha get the need and see the use cases. Right now, only the Admin App can delete packages submitted by the submission links.

    The guest said the use case of what prompted the idea. I tried logging in with my ats admin and workspace manager credentials and still could not delete the package. Second use case. A shared inbox user with Edit rights should be able to delete, right? What if we did not want them able to delete? What if edit for us is adding a recipient or forwarding a package or anything but deleting a package?

    Hi <submitter>, can you provide a step by step example of your request? We're trying to fully understand your request. Thanks

    If you have a package uploaded to a shared inbox via a public link, and the package upload stalls/fails, the users who manage the shared inbox cannot delete these stalled "uploading" packages. So you have a package with the status "uploading" indefinitely. Workspace admins and Shared Inbox admins should be able to do just that - admin. You coudl delete packages in the previous AOC version.
