Abstract

The IBM Connections Product Ideas Lab creates a more permanent and direct link between your ideas and our product management and development teams.

We on the Connections team recognize that it is essential that we incorporate your feedback into our design and development process.  Up to now, there have been multiple ways that you can provide that feedback and a general lack of visibility into whether or not your suggestions have been heard, prioritized, and when (if ever) you could expect to see them included in Connections.

To make sure that we are capturing your suggestions and priorities and to greatly increase the transparency back from IBM on your ideas, we are launching the IBM Connections Product Ideas Lab, which will create a more permanent and direct link between your ideas and our product management and development teams. 

We have been reshaping how IBM's Product Management team engages and communicates with you, the IBM Connections community, and aim to ensure those conduits are stronger and more robust than before.  We hope the idea lab will play an important part in achieving this goal, and are committed to this solution for the foreseeable future. It is leading edge, and here to stay.  

As you will see, we are using Aha, the leader in product roadmap software, to capture your ideas and requests. Aha was specifically chosen for its robust features and tight integration between the user-generated enhancement requests and the back-end product and release management capabilities that will be used by the Connections product management and development teams.  It will allow us to directly promote an idea to a feature to be tracked in our development backlog, and it will also allow us to share status updates as a request moves through the review and development process (Under Consideration, Planned, Shipped), with automated email alerts sent out to those following the feature.  Aha also allows us to ask questions about your suggestions and seek further input.

Here’s How to Get Started:  

Go to connections.ideas.aha.io, click on “Add a new idea” and start sharing your request!  We will ask for your name and email for tracking purposes, but your name will not be shown on the public site. 

We also hope that you will take a look around at other ideas and vote for the ones that you would like to see in Connections. This will have an impact on how fast and in what priority we add items to our roadmap.

The submissions are organized by feature category to make it easier to browse and find other ideas you want to vote on.  You can also filter ideas by status so you can see what’s being worked on or already shipped.

Thank you for your help in making Connections the best product it can be.
