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 notification 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.

Bulk Data and File/Link Move should be part of core platform
There are no standard platform delivered tools to bulk move business data, files and link objects. Often data has to be moved on mass to support organisation hierarchy changes, in particular split or merge changes. Services have to be engaged to custom develop tools to peform this business critical activity. At RBS we have started with a version of a bulk move tool for data and attachments that was done for another client. Whilst the data move largely works OK with minimal change (logging had to be improved), the file/link move utility needed to be changed as it wasn't working properly. These services tools are not well documented and require many days of chargeable time and effort to get them working properly.
