Let us export and import to MS-Excel (*.xls) format.
(Many people don't know what a "Tabular-Text" or „Comma-Separated-File“ is.)
And while you are at it:
Most databases used categorized views. In my opinion they are one of the best features of Notes.Another great feature is the full text search. Sadly when you use these together, the view no longer shows the categories. (unless you choose to "Show all documents (Sortable)" That is to bad since ...
When using a database in a notes client I frequently find myself wanting to collapse all categories except the one I am browsing. Unfortunately this is a pain -- the easiest way to do this is to click the 'collapse all' button, then re-expand the category I was previously viewing. ...
I want to be able to select some or all of the text in a view row and copy it to the clipboard, then paste it somewhere as text.
Right now, click-and-drag grabs the entire view entry for dragging to a folder. Obviously, I don't want to lose that ...
Just as you can do in Excel, double click the column edge to adjust its length to fit the content.
I've searched and found no similar ideas. Sorry if it has existed.
The Notes client never completely collapses a Notes view that displays a document-response hierarchy. Even if you enable the If the Collapse all when database is first opened and Go to top row properties, Notes will collapse everything else in the view *** EXCEPT *** the thread containing the last ...
I want to be able to specify alternate text based on code for an icon displayed in a view column. Similar to the alt attribute of <img>. I'm imagining something like the way the foreground/background color is specified such as:
In a view we can display icons and image ressources.
However we cannot display a picture which is stored directly inside of the document.
It would be nice to have this option for displaying thumbnails of attachments, photos of users , ....
PS: And it should be easily ...
In a view with multiline entries custom icons (image resources) are aligned "middle" (vertically centered), whereas standard icons (referenced by number) are aligned "top" (see screen shot).
I would suggest to also align custom icons "top" for a consistent display.
An option to control the vertical alignment of text and ...
The menu option view\Go to... [view dialog] is only available if you already have a view open or from the workspace. If you have a page open, then it is not available.
This option should be made available in any context.
In mail template versions previous to version 8.x, a user could select a calendar view option to "Start monthly view with current week." In version 8.x templates this is missing and you can only view the current calendar month rather than the next four weeks.
The "Two Week" calendar view is no longer available when using the Notes 8.5 client. Interestingly enough, the view does exist when using iNotes.
Maybe , when a flat Notes view could have an auto filter function just like in spreadsheet programs than it would be less necessary to create export functions for Notes Views.
@setviewinfo just filters the first column.
Ability to view your tab'd aplications within your Notes client on separate screens.
This would be particularly useful for integrated apps like Symphony with its doc and spreadsheet tools.
Essentially allowing you to view both apps on a single (or dual) screen without having to flip back and forth between ...
do you like to open the menu to find this action?
when I perform a search on a view via he 'Search this view' option my Notes client is frozen for a dozen of secons, depending on the size of the view.
I would rather like to be able to work with other tabs in the mean time.
Ok so what we're looking for here is a product of a discussion with the more Windows centric folks at a customer site.
The belief is that it is a MS standard UI guideline that a group of selected items, once an action is taken on them, the selected ...
Writing to sort by column, as well as several columns, asking them to order. Be able to save the order of columns for a particular View. Import and export orders of columns.
Starting point: idea Make Views in XPages sortable after FTSearch.
Just about everywhere I go these is some variation on a view of groups categorised by members
Having one by default would at least mean that code we use to address this view (e.g.. a lookup to find all groups a person is in) would be consistent
Many views allow the user to resort them by some column. Such a resort-setting is "remembered" even when the user leaves and reopens the database or even restart his notes-client. Even that this functionality is nice for mail-views in many other applications it causes many support-calls by inexperient users.
