IBM Cloud - Structured Ideas

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

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and vote them if they matter to you

  1. Post an idea

  2. Vote 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 notifications 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.

NOTE: All IBM employees must enter Ideas through this Ideas Portal.

Cancel Virtual Server web UI dialog "OK" button is labeled "Cancel". It should be changed to "Confirm".

I realize why this decision might have been made, but the Cancel Virtual Server web UI dialog box would be much better and generally less likely to confuse someone, if the confirmation button was labeled "Confirm", "Confirm Cancelation" or honestly just about anything else other than "Cancel", since that is traditionally used to stop proceeding forward with the current action, which is just the opposite of what the cancel button does in this case.

 

There is a real risk that someone will use the cancel button, trying to cancel the action, instead of confirming it, and then destroy a server that they didn't want to destroy.
