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.

Templatize field configuration settings in Order Hub and apply to multiple users

In Order Hub, users can view to display only the relevant attributes by modifying the field configurations in almost every screen. While this feature is very useful, every user needs to be perform this activity once initially.

When there are a large number of changes across multiple screens, this introduces the chance of manual error. Also, users are typically grouped into teams (Business, IT, etc.) and each team will have its own set of configurations

This RFE is to provide an ability to save/export an user's preferences as a template which can then be imported by other users belonging to the same team. This will greatly improve the usability aspect during user setup

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

As part of initial setup, templates will be created by manually selecting/de-selecting the various fields in every page. This will be a one-time setup for every team


Subsequently, users will be asked to import their respective team's template on first log-in

    Thank you for submitting your idea. We will include this in the Order Hub roadmap and work with the engineering team to provide a mechanism to manage user settings.
