Welcome to the IBM Connections Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated by the IBM Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

For more information and upcoming events, please visit our IBM Connections page.


Improve Blogs UI for ease of navigation/use by end users

Requesting these changes to the Blogs UI as the current design is not intuitive nor efficient for end users.

Once a draft blog is composed saved & closed there is no straight forward way of getting back the draft. For the community owner(s), the only options is you have to go through Manage blog action and then click on "Entries" on the left panel. Or for both community owners and community members you access a blog entry in edit mode and the drafts will appear on the left panel.

The menu for the blog app (ie switch from the community overview to Blogs using the dropdown option for the community) on the left panel of the community blog page is missing. If you go through the manage blog option the menu you see seems relevant to be placed instead on the default blog home screen for at least the community owner if not all.

    Agree. It should also be possible to move blog entries to other blogs.

    I am also still waiting for a "More" tag which is quite common for blogs. The blog overview would be much easier to scroll and read through if you don't have the whole content of each blog post.
