IBM Sterling Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

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

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

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,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. 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 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.

Built in alert filtering

In the new UI we would like an easy way to filter alerts so that specific regions or users can see relevant alerts without having to sort through a lot of irrelevant alerts.

What is your industry? Retail
How will this idea be used?

This would allow users to more easily sort through alerts by filtering out the irrelevant alerts

    I apologize for the delay. I just recently realized all responses to me were going to junk mail.


    Please see the attached screenshot. We also did a customization in the current UI to add in the enterprise. In the new UI we would like that to be OOTB.

    Hi Jake,

    Can you share how you set up the current alert queues? Dev suggested creating separate queues for diff regions, then users can subscribe to different queues.

    Hi Jake,

    Can you please provide a few business use cases? Also, include what are the criteria of the alert filtering you are looking for.
