This portal is to open public enhancement requests against IBM Power Systems products, including IBM i. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
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:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.
Welcome to the IBM Ideas Portal (https://www.ibm.com/ideas) - Use this site to find out additional information and details about the IBM Ideas process and statuses.
IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com) - Use this site to view all of your ideas, create new ideas for any IBM product, or search for ideas across all of IBM.
firstname.lastname@example.org - Use this email to suggest enhancements to the Ideas process or request help from IBM for submitting your Ideas.
Thank you for your request. I looked into it further to find out why the second message is sent, and found that it was added when the inquiry message reply exit point was added.
This is the scenario that it was added for:
When you copy someone else's screen, they get an impromptu message that says the screen is to be copied, and they can reply G to continue or C to cancel. If the user replies C to cancel, an exit program could then change that reply message from Cancel to Go and then not realize that their screens are now being captured even after they tried to cancel. So the "extra" messages are sent to the user after exit programs are called, so the user realizes that the screen is really being copied. The user cannot stop the copy screen at that point, but they can signoff to end the entire session.
The CEAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a “nice to have” LOW priority feature.
Background: The COMMON Europe Advisory Council (CEAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CEAC has a crucial role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual RFEs on the broader IBM i community and has therefore reviewed your RFE.
