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.

Enhance Search Abilities for InFlight Archive

It is EXTREMELY difficult to find documents in InFlight Archive because there are such limited search options. When looking for data, I most often search by envelope name or map name. Neither of those options are available. We also have many partners that use different ISA and GS IDs but we also can't search by GS ID which then leads to a situation where we have to try and search through all data returned by ISA lookup to see if we can locate a document with the correct GS ID. Archive should contain the exact same search flexibility as the current data since it is even less likely that we will have the information available to us needed to find a document in Archive given the limited search criteria available today.

What is your industry? Travel & Transportation
How will this idea be used?

I would be able to identify data that was processed by a particular envelope or map name rather than trying to narrow it down by ISA IDs and Transaction Type alone. As mentioned we have many partners who use different GS and ISA IDs which the current search criteria do not take into account.
