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.


have different permissions on different files/folders in community files

It is not true that in a large project group, everybody is allowed to see everything. Subcommunities add too much complexity so please add permissions to files and folders, based on roles and names. Some more roles would help anyways (like LOB manager, project manager, project managers assistant or project engineer or supplier or observer without any writing)

    You could use Box (or maybe CCM ) as Files Library in Communities. They should have the per file security feature you needed.

    Yes they cost an extra license but to be fair the above security requirement is also not very common.
