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.


Add a Community homepage widget to show the community status updates on the homepage too

Community status updates are a handy and important option to inform users of what's going on in a community. However, they are not shown on the community homepage (unless you change the default homepage to the status updates view) and therefore hardly ever used. 

Please add a widget that the community owner can add to their community homepage to show the last x (x preferably to be decided by the community owner!) status updates on the community homepage too.

Ideally you should also be able to limit the updates shown to All updates (which includes change notifications to files, forums, etc within that community) or only messages shared as status posts made to the community.

    This will also make use of activity stream within a community (e.g. posting status updates for the community) be much better leveraged.
