  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.

Copy text from HTML Report

Scenario: when running reports to HTML in CA11, users are unable to select/copy text from the HTML output.

For example: In C10 users were able to run a report and find Client Ids with a specific fund and the copy a few of the Client Id's and paste them into an Email or into a new query, etc.

In C11 users are unable to copy anything that is output as HTML making that format fairly unusable.

Can you please include this issue in the idea section and see if it can be baked into the product to allow copy operation from HTML report.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? Whole cognos analytics user community (17k+ users)in Vanguard environment will benefit from this change.
How should it work?

When users run the report in HTML format, they should be able to copy text from the report like plan ID, details like cost, find client Ids with a specific fund and the copy a few of the Client Id's and paste them into an Email or into a new query, etc.

Idea Priority High
Priority Justification Vanguard group is under migration from 10.2.2 to 11.0.13 and 17k+ users are using this environment in test mode currently and soon will be using Prod completely by decommissioning Cognos 10. As a part of this transition, there are certain blockers raised by Vanguard and this change/Issue is one of it. It would be great if this can be prioritized to assist Vanguard cognos user community.
