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.

Validation failure message box

Currently it is possible to add validation to dialogs in tasks. When a partner does not complete/answer accurately there is no way to specifically tell them what to fix. There is a red X next to the field which is in violation, but not what they are in violation of.

We would like to add wording next to the red X or add a pop up box which we can customize for fields with validation. Much like an explanation appears for required fields hovering over the red x, we would like to customize this wording, when validation is required.

    We don't expect to be able to deliver on this enhancement in the medium term (the next 18 months). Currently, the tool tip can be used on each field to provide the guidance needed on what format should be used on each field.
