IBM Data and AI RegTech 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

Post 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 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.

New UI - allow multiple IE sessions

The new UI doesn't allow multiple IE 11 sessions to be used simultaneously. When I try having 2 separate browser sessions open (using the File > New session option) I always get a "The session has expired. Please log in again." error when I try going back to the original session after doing an edit in the second session. This will be frustrating for our users who are used to being able to use multiple sessions simultaneously.

This error is even worse because it only appears when a user tries to save changes in the original session. This means users could spend quite a bit of time editing data in the original session and then only when they click save will they get the session expired error. This could lead to users losing a significant amount of data and having to rekey it all in which they'll get frustrated with.

    Thank you again for submitting this Idea!

    Upon looking into this, Google Chrome ("incognito" mode) works for this use case.

    Marking as "Capability Already Exists".
