IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Clients

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

If you have not registered on this portal please register at . To complete registration you will need to open the email you will receive from Aha to confirm your identity.

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.

Increase Width of Scrollbar on a navigation bar for Google Chrome

The scrollbar in the navigation window is too thin in Chrome.

As a user, who has many objects in one folder, it is difficult to scroll down.

The scrollbar width in Internet Explorer 11 is wider than in Chrome.

    Thanks for the extra detail. This is not something we are able to reproduce here, so I suspect it may be related to some OS or Chrome settings. It may be the 'overlay-scrollbars' setting in Chrome. Are you able to try resetting your Chrome preferences to the defaults?

    The first screenshot is from PowerPlay Studio, the last one is from Cognos Analytics 11.1 R7 (LTS).

    Thank you for these details. It looks like you are using one of the legacy UIs, perhaps the old admin console? What version of Cognos are you using? Are the scrollbars working OK in the My Content and Team Content panels from the home page?

    Thank you for this submission. Could you please provide some screenshots of the narrow scrollbars in Chrome and the version of Chrome that you are using? That will help us better understand the issue.
