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.

Today there is no way to trigger physical inventory count in SIM. The functionality can be enabled via a program/backend. It should nullify all other open requests.

    Physical count UI is on roadmap for 2023 Q1. Physical count api's will be delivered by Q2 2022 and you can customise the UI to use the api incase if you need it before 2023 Q1.

    Currently when we trigger cycle count it wont cancel cycle counts which were created earlier.

    To generate full physical count for all items and sku's , we need to clean up existing outstanding tasks and cancel existing programs. Once the physical count task completed, we need to resume back the old cycle count frequency program

    This is manual process, product don't have feature to seamlessly store manager can trigger the full physical count with out doing all backend cleanup.

    Manager should be able to pause the existing program and resume once the full cycle count is completed,

    but these feature is not currently available please, check and let us know whether its feasible
