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.

Purpose field in pick request allows only two values SALE and TRANSFER, we need more values - REPLACEMENT, PICKUP

Purpose field in pick request is only allows two values SALE and TRANSFER, we need more values - REPLACEMENT, PICKUP. This will help store to differentiate what type of PICK request. We need purpose field value to be supported in pick preferences API as well.

Bin assignment during WALK_IN order Pick, we would like to exclude the REPLACEMENT bins. We want to change the pick preference of walk in not have access to bin where replacement items are kept only way we can achieve this is by having a separate purpose field, but it only support SALES and TRANSFER for this reason we need a new purpose field.

    Hi Iavanya,

    Our engineering team suggested using the reference field to capture the details of Replacement and Pick Up. Please evaluate if the workaround works for you.

    Purpose field is present in pickRequestCreated and pickRequestCompleted pubsub messages and also in pick request summary whenever we are invoking through API tester. We do have pick preference API with purpose field as null, we need ability to add pick preference with purpose field this will help us to exclude replacement bins for the WALK_IN and BOPIS order.
