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.

Quick Button to search a customer's Order History

In the new UI we would like a button that allows the user to click a single button and find the customer's order history. This should show all of the customer's orders in the order search screen.

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

We will use this button to quickly search a customer's previous orders. This could be used in various conversations, but it would be very helpful if a customer checked out as a guest and needs to know what products they previously ordered.

    Hi Jake,

    Thanks for your reply. This one is now under future consideration.

    Hey Jason,


    In this case we are looking for a quick button to click and find the customer's order history instead of going back a screen to the order search screen. Imagine if you are on the order summary screen and then had a button off to the right that just said order history and linked you to the customer's order history.

    Hi Jake,

    Can you provide examples of business use cases, please? Order search already supports search by customer email so you should be able to find customer's order history. Thanks.
