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 upvote them if they matter to you,
Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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 notification 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.
Configuration Option to Prevent the OOTB PDF of an Application Submission Being Created
In common intake we have the OOTB worklowProcessIntakeApplication which processes the application submission. One of the activities of this workflow is to create a PDF of the submitted data.
The template used for this is very basic (format not great), and it extracts out ALL the info related to the submission.
The issue we have is that as part of the application, equality survey questions are asked which cannot be outputted to the OOTB PDF for policy reasons.
We do have a custom process to generate a more friendly looking PDF which only displays valid information as part of the submission.
In addition, we've had to override the OOTB ProcessIntakeApplication and remove the OOTB PDF creation activity. It would have been better if we could have just configured an option not to produce it in the first place.
Persona Based Summary
As a client advisor I want to be able to view an application submission PDF showing only appropriate details that the client provided.
Type of Request
Usage frequency + #/type of users impacted
This would be used every time an application submission is made within the solution, i.e. frequency is high, every day.
Workarounds + Proposed Solution
1) Overrode the OOTB workflow to not create the OOTB PDF. Have a custom PDF process to output appropriate sections of the application submission.
2) Would prefer a configuration option to prevent the PDF from being created rather than overriding the workflow.
