As a refresher, the Idea process has replaced the old ER Process. In the new Idea process, you no longer need to create a Service Request (SR) with the corresponding Product group for an ER, you create your own Idea directly in the Product community. Then you and anyone in the Community can vote on and/or discuss your Idea.
Benefits of the new process? You have the ability to create, manage, and vote on your own Idea. You can discuss and expand on your Idea in threads with other Community Users (which includes Oracle Development and EBS Product Management). You can see the progress that your Idea is making through votes and discussion threads. You can view, vote on, and discuss all other existing Idea's. You can filter Ideas by many different options, including 'Delivered' Ideas. And best of all, you can easily monitor where your Idea stands.
How does it work? To get to existing Ideas, go to the Logistics or Inventory Items (APC/PLM/PIM) Communities, navigate: Content > Ideas (tab). To create an Idea, click on: Create an idea.
You can create an Idea with any information that suits you. We suggest that you be as detailed as possible and provide your product release, screenshots or video's (if applicable), define your business process (including industry benefits), feature gaps, and the overall benefits of the Idea. Remember, this is your opportunity to provide information on why you would like your Idea implemented and how it would benefit others. Your stumping for votes.
The new Idea ability in Communities is the quickest way to get your ideas directly in front of Oracle Development. Top voted ideas float to the top and certainly draw more attention. As always, Oracle puts you, the Customer, in the forefront. Moving ER's to Communities Ideas now gives you the power over your ER's. Please help us in tracking features that are important to you.
