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.

InFlight - Selected Business Views hover updated to include NOT selected in list

Update the "eyeball" hover in InFlight that shows active business views, to include both the selected and de-selected ones, in some differentiated way.

Example (the deselected view in this case might be one that is only used to house Managed AS2 view, for instance):

AwesomeCo BA

AwesomeCo TPs

AwesomeCo Division Coolness

AwesomeCo Europe Rad View


Selected Business views:
AwesomeCo BA

AwesomeCo Division Coolness

AwesomeCo Europe Rad View

Deselected Business views:
AwesomeCo TPs

What is your industry? Non-Industry Specific
How will this idea be used?

Currently, there is a shortcut, "eyeball" icon in the top right of InFlight, that a user can hover over to see which business views they have currently "checked" in their preferences to be included in their results. The eyeball is green if all available views to that user are selected, and yellow if some are not. If you hover over, it tells you which are currently selected.

Sometimes, especially as a support user, the yellow raises a concern, so we browse to preferences to select whatever was missing, only to notice it was a valid "reporting only" or other non-used business view for regular data searching, and we just wasted our time.

It would be great to be able to in that hover, indicate "selected" AND "non-selected" either by separating them into two headers on the fly-down, or by striking-through the non-selected ones.
