Much like Sametime was introduced to R6.5, give passport customers who use Notes/Domino a limited use to the Activities part of Lotus Connections. In my (humble, of course :) opinion, Activities is a much better fit functionality wise with Notes/Domino than it is Connections anyway.
There are a lot of admin-features (configure dogear, removing dogears from users) built in connections, but they are only available through the unfriendly wasadmin interface. It would be awfully usefull if connections had a webadministration / configuration interface.
What I would like is have the ability for Connections to pull an RSS feed from my blog and repost it in my Connections blog. I would set up a feed just for a particular Connections community and only send items to that feed that I think are releavnt in the ...
Currently, when editing a Comment, To Do or other entry in the Activities web interface, you can only see about 6 or 7 lines of text in the edit box. This makes it very hard to edit entries of non-trivial length. I would like to see an option to make ...
Although Lotus Connections has a "mail community" feature, it's an all or nothing proposition. A great newsletter feature would include:
for the "hot blogs" area on the right of the blogs page, allow blogs hosted elsewhere (inside the firewall) to this list based on popularity
Make it easy to get to the information you are looking for and rank partners based on search criteria. Have phone staff search this area when they take calls to ensure customers are routed to partners that can help them effectively.
While I understand IBM's perspective is one Activities server to a company, what if you have more than 1? what if you belong to Bleedyellow, greenhouse, IBM's, test domain, live domain, other live domain?
sure some follow you in the location doc switching but what if you don't switch? ...
IMHO any enterprise 2.0 blogging solution should include the capacity for people outside the company to identify themselves and add comments without having to have a profile registered with Connections. To be effective this should include popular identification models including accounts from poplar public social software products such as FaceBook ...
Currently you can only mark a To Do or Activity as "Complete" or "Incomplete". Having only a boolean choice between these options makes it difficult to see, at a glance, the bigger picture of the activity and makes it harder to collaborate.
I'd like to see a system where ...
After adding a new version of a file it should be possible to edit the description assigned to a specific File
I would like to see Connections give us the ability to present the user with a "Log In With (Facebook|Twitter|LinkedIn)" button. Let us utilize an existing social network instead of having to build another one. This is obviously for public facing Connections deployments. These existing social networks already have user ...
Make the number of rows persistent.
If I select 50 rows in blogs, I'd like to have the 50 rows again in wikis or the search.
I personally don't like paging with only 10 entries.
Can't it be 10, 25, 50, 100 or continuous ?
Give the user the ability to control which tab is the defaul upon sign-on.
We need Connections Files and Profiles plugins for Linux also. In general, all plugins should be availabla for all platforms.
If IBM sells this technoligie as "paltform independet"
Currently, administrators have no control over what happens when an owner deletes a community/wiki/blog/activity. There is no soft deletion capability. There is no way of easily restoring it to the environment if the deletion was done errorneously or maliciously. There is no way to limit some owners to do everything but ...
(Note: the two screenshots above are kind of mashed together and look line one. The second screenshot begins with the label Title:)
I really like the Notify other users feature in Connetions bookmark. However, i frequently find myself bookmarking a resource (usually in Foxear) and then opening up a My ...
When setting up user access to an Activity - I'd like to be able to add a group and then be able to assign todo's to any individual within that group [need the system to explode the group and add all the members in the background]. Today I can add ...
Current field limitations (for 4byte unicode ~127 symbols) are too small.
It would be useful if organisation level tags could be implemented and say highlighted red with user defined tags in blue. Could prevent tag confusion. It would also be useful to be able to have the ability to append description to tags.
