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.

Language selection or setting by store associate

Store UI language should obey the locale of the store employee (ie, use the locale in the YFS_USER entry), and not be a setting at the store level. Additionally, allow the store employee to select from a list of languages for the UI within the store UI.

How will this idea be used?

Rollout to the retail store outlets in Canada with the OOTB language settings violates local language laws where the interface language must be one of two official languages of the employee's choice.

Further, many latin American countries, European countries and even US territories (Puerto Rico) are bi-lingual or multi-lingual.

    Admin response

    Hi, thank you for your idea.

    We are targeting globalization and extended language support for 8 base languages in our next-gen Store application, including Spanish, German, French, Italian, Brazilian, Portuguese, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, & Traditional Chinese. This enhancement will be targeted for mid 2021.
