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.

Make files actionable by using activities and relations

When working with files, it would be VERY helpful if you could do a simple thing:

Connect files to activities right in the file preview right panel.

Therefor I recommend another tab called relations where you can do this:

  • add relations between files and files (with a short comment and a relation type like "belongs to", "is an answer to", etc.
  • add relations between files and activities (and visually list activities like in the todo list so you can see at once what is done and what not. Would be great to be able to complete a task from here and also to create a new one)
  • add relations between files and people (with a short comment and a relation type like "was created by", "owner", "reviewer", etc.
  • draw a beautful directed graph chart around the file object node, showing all related nodes that belong to this object, each node a link to the corresponding object

    Just like you already do for people objects, extend that to every possible object type...
