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.

Gift card auto cash out is currently not supported by OMS even though its the law in certain states

Several states in united states have a law for gift cards tender i.e. after gift card tender if remaining balance on the card is below threshold, it must be given as cash to customer in same transaction. Threshold varies by state, some states have it as $3, some $5. 

Example: 

Transaction balance is $10

Credit card tender $1 (partial tender)

Gfit card tender - requested for $9 but it was approved for $12 because after $9 remaining balance goes below threshold of $5, so entire balance left on gift card is approved by payment gateway. 

$9 is applied to transaction at point of sale and $3 is issued as cash to customer.

 

In this scenario when OMS creates invoice, no where it shows $1 credit card tender. all tender lines described above are not recorded in invoice, it makes transaction out of balance.
