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.

Support a context specific CSS file to control the look and feel of UI dialog components

Add the ability for there to be a PEM context specific CSS file which could be updated by Sponsor Admins and would control the look and feel of UI dialog components within activities.  This would require that the dialog components support the ability to specify an ID or class so that they can be referenced in the CSS file. 

This would provide flexibility on how components look visually but also allow "centralized" control for any updates.  Any changes made in the CSS file would then be picked up by all UI dialogs at run time.

As an optional bonus, the CSS file could also used to control how the PEM portal itself looks and feels.

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

Visual components could be made to match the standards of the sponsor organization, making it look and feel closer to its own web sites.

    This is not the current direction for the activity framework. While it is an alternate way of approaching activities, we don't expect to consider or address this within the medium term.
