  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.

When exporting snapshot or slice of a PAfE (PAX) Excel workbook from PAW : add the possibility to not include hidden sheets

When integrating a PAX / PAfE workbook in a PAW book, we can go to Export menu and select Excel Snapshot or Excel Slice, but the number of exported sheets is much more than expected, due to the existence of hidden sheets in the workbook.  We need an option to disable the export of hidden sheets.

How should it work?

A checkbox in the PAW interface after selecting Export -> Excel Snapshot or Excel Slice

Idea Priority High
Priority Justification Because the calculation of the number of exported sheets does include the hidden unwanted sheets, the limit of 50 sheets is very quickly reached. which makes this functionality almost unusable.

    Ability for users to export the entire PAW workbook to excel, we should be able to click some button on the PAW workbook, to export the whole report to excel.
