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 notifications 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.

TDWC - need to have a notepad like functionality to edit scheduling objects
We currently use TWS WebAdmin from Segus as our GUI. Their product has a functionality known as text edit mode. You can select a database object from a filtered view then click the text edit function. A notepad like text edit window appears with the text of the object in it. Once you make your changes, you save it and it does a composer replace/add under the covers. This window can also be used for copy/paste to clone jobs/streams from an existing one. It can also accept a paste from anything else (composer create output file, etc) to bulk load or bulk replace objects. It is a function that is used a great deal at our company. We have over 400 users and we won't use TDWC unless it has this functionality in it. I know our user base depends on it daily. I would be willing to show how it works in an AOS session if that helps understand it better or I can send screen shots of the execution of it. I rated the priority as urgent as we critically need this functionality in order to accept TDWC as our GUI. My management would like to standardize on 1 GUI, but we cannot until TDWC has this type of functionality. I imagine there are others who use WebAdmin that would appreciate this functionality as well. Please consider this request for enhancement and feel free to contact me with any questions.
