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.

For product documentation, see Knowledge Center.

Allow default Currency to be set for each user

OpenPages allows currency values to be entered in different currencies. Usually the currency the users use depend on their location - e.g. users in USA will enter values in USD, users in Germany in EUR, in Australia in AUD, etc.
Currently there is no way to pre-populate the currency on a per-user basis, meaning the users have to select the currency every time they add an object with currency fields.
This RFE is to allow for a default currency to be defined for each user that is pre-selected in currency fields when creating new objects.
If no default currency is defined for a user the system reverts to the base currency.

    Fully support this as we are a global organization with offices in many countries across the globe. We need to be able to record our loss events etc in our own local currency.
