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.

Able to View Sponsor Task before the Task is complete

When we are executing an activity and are in the middle of Sponsor Task and there is a Exit Validation Error. Now, if we want to see what components are ran in that task, we can't because there is no View Option, when the Task is in progress.
FYI : If the Task is Partner Task, we have the View Option

How will this idea be used?

This feature, would help in analysis the issue, even when there is exit validation error in a sponsor task.

Currently, if there is a exit validation error in a sponsor task, there is no way to see what ran in that task until that point.

    Hi Greg,

    Thanks for the response.

    But, for Sponsor Task, admin is not able to cancel and view. It is coming only for Partner Tasks.

    Screenshots for your reference:


    Sponsor Task - There is no view, when the task is not completed.



    Partner Task - There is view

    If you cancel and save the task, then you should be able to see the responses in the sponsor task. The admin should be able to see the responses in the view mode.
