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.

Multi Tab screen support in the 2.0 store

The current 1.0 store supports multiple tabs open on a screen, The store associates use this multi-tab format in the 1.0 to work on multiple shipments at a time. This helps in increasing productivity since they move on to shipments if they are blocked with a particular shipment and come back to the shipment at a later point, which they see with the open tabs on the screen.

In the 2.0 store, there is no support for tabs, So the store associate will have to close the shipment action page in order to go to the other shipments which are causing a decrease in productivity as they have to go back on the search for the shipments they had started on previously.
