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.

Enable to make the printer name drop down list or the whole property pane broader, in order to be able to distinguish the similar long names of the printers in the new CA user interface as well

Description of the issue: if the printer names are too long and similar, it is not possible to distinguish them in the new CA user interface simply and at the first look.

    Yes, it is true, there is a tooltip, but it is not very handy to check every abailable printer with the tooltip (if this printer is the right one), especially if there are a lot of them available. Moreover tooltip shows only the network path, in case the field with the name of the printer shows more user friedly name of it as well. I know, that there is a workaround with the classical view, but it would be nice to be able to have a look at the printer name/path easily and at once in the new CA interface as well.

    We do have a tooltip that appears today when you hover over a printer name from the drop down of printers in the scheduling UI. Could you expand a bit more on the use case for expanding it?
