Full DXL round-trip of DESIGN ELEMENTS

: Domino Designer
: dxl, design, database
Rocky Oliver1821 - 26 2008 (36)
There is another idea for Full DXL Round-trip, but it is for both design and data. This idea hopes to take smaller bites of the elephant that is DXL support. Lotus should begin by making design elements 100% round-trippable in the next version of Notes. This would open many doors ...

Overhaul the Replace Design Dialog

: Domino Designer
: designer, design, template, dialog
Richard Schwartz3723 - 04 2007 (3)
Let us navigate the folder hierarchy when selecting a template.  Let us browse outside the data directory.  At a very minimum, even without a hiearcichal view, let us display titles, template names, filenames and dates, and sort on any of them!  Let us filter by type (NTF, master template, and ...

Allow all icons to confirm to the .ICO defacto standard.

: Domino Designer
: icons, aesthetics, standards, design, interface
Andrew Pollack2909 - 23 2007 (4)
Lots of people have posted things about adding more colors or size to the icons.  Good, but incomplete.
 
Icons - including database, workspace page, toolbar, and bookmarks -- should allow you to specify a standard windows (supported by linux and mac also after a fashion) icon (.ico) files.   These ...

Copy attributes between elements

: Domino Designer
: copy, attribute, field, form, design, designer
Mark Haller1118 - 22 2008 (1)
It would be great if it was possible to copy attributes of a selected element in Designer and "paint" it onto other elements, much the way Format Painter does in Office products.
 
I'm thinking selecting a field and grabbing the "Computed for Display" property and being able to "paint" ...

David Killingsworth3990 - 14 2008 (3)
Similar Idea = http://ideajam.net/IdeaJam/P/ij.nsf/0/1E1A08081F555B0A8625739A0063CDC0?OpenDocument
 
Allow design refresh or replace in the admin client.  Either by allowing us to add to the administrator smart icons so that we can add the @Command([DesignRefresh]) or @Command([DesignReplace])
 
or allow us to right click and choose Design\Replace and Refresh.
 
We can see ...

Private Views - Inherit Design Changes

: Domino Designer
: private, view, inherit, design, change
Andrew McCann270 - 15 2008 (3)
 
Using Private Views in Lotus Notes has always been a bit of a double edge sword.

They do have their obvious benefits and can work fantastically. Unfortunately they have their limitations, which on paper would be quite easily resolved with a little work.

The problem ...

Allow Subform ABOVE the Actionbar

: Domino Designer
: form, subform, actionbar, ui, design
Theo Heselmans6404 - 14 2008 (16)
A lot of websites have a menubar/actionbar below the banner/logo/title. This gives the user a better experience, and looks nicer too. Notes currently has the actionbar always at the top.
I propose to have a setting in the actionbar to define/compute an optional subform to put above the actionbar.
When ...

User friendly version of Domino directory

: Notes Client / Other
: directory, ui, gui, design, usability
Oliver Regelmann4944 - 05 2009 (5)
By default every user sees the same design of the Domino directory, including all configuration data and the ugly person documents. There's simply too much information for the end user. He doesn't need to see everybody's home server, public key data or password policy. Some of potentially essential infos are ...

Drag and drop Notes documents

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: ui, document, design
Peter Moline1403 - 28 2007 (3)
I would like to be able to drag and drop documents from one Notes database into another, or from one tab to another.
 
Think for minute how useful this could be. You could embed a folder from one database into an outline in another database (eg. the mail template), ...

Better control over what gets displayed as possible values for Names fields

: Domino Designer
: form, design
Dietmar Dumke907 - 03 2008 (2)
To avoid user errors, give form designers control what types of addressbook entries will be selectable for a given Names/Readers/Authors field. E.g. to define that for a SendTo field should appear only entries which are mailable; in a field which controls document access should appear only entries which can control ...

Decent (error) report when trying to refresh a design

: Domino Designer
: design, refresh, template
Patrick Kwinten22008 - 24 2008 (0)

When a design refresh initiated via the Designer client fails one of the few ways to see 'what' and 'where' things went wrong is the statusbar.

Not really a helpful way of reporting and a bad start to start your research in the cause.

 

Note: the attached file does ...

Default Design/Replace to last used server

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: design, promote
David Leedy619 - 09 2008 (1)
When refreshing the design of a notes database it always defaults to Server Local.  I would like it to default to my test server to save a little time.
 
It would be nice if this box defaulted to either the last used server or you could set an ini ...

Bob Brodsky300 - 13 2007 (1)
When the @ThisField and @ThisValue functions were announced at Lotusphere I chatted with Damien about the need for an @ThisFieldHelp function and he saw the need for it. Unfortunately he left Lotus.
 
When using the @This... functions and a field value fails a Validation formula then the only meaningful ...

Henning Kunz260 - 13 2008 (0)
Dealing with Designtemplates I would like to be able to sort the databases in the Filetab of the Administrator in column Template, mark all Databases which are based on a specific template (this already works) and then do a right click to refresh the design of these databases with the ...

Provide an easy way to change the design of the Start and MyPlaces page

: Quickr

Michael Urspringer164 - 05 2008 (2)
I would like to see an easy way to change the design of the start page (the one displayed while no user has been logged in) and the MyPlaces page in Quickr (Services for Domino). It should work in a similar way as changing the design of a place itself.

Design info of the standard applications

Lykle Schepers142 - 11 2008 (2)
Oh wouldn't it be wonderfull if we had the design docs for the standard applications like Resource reservations, with all the flows and such. I have tried to modify that database and it is hard with my somewhat limited skills.
 
So, or I am more limited then I thought, ...

Split view of design and source in XPages editor

: Domino Designer
: xpages, design, source, split view
Joseph Hoetzl4698 - 26 2010 (2)
In the XPages editor in DDE, I'd like to be able to view design and source in one screen.
And/Or, even better, design on one monitor, source on the other!

Quicker access to Refresh/Replace Design

: Domino Designer
: refresh, replace, design
Paul Davies12351 - 21 2007 (3)
I prefer to test changes by applying a new dsign to a test db from a template.
 
This can be quite tiresome with the number of right-clicks, and messages to get through.
 
A simple app in the OpenNTF codebin allowed you to refresh a db design with ...

Database properties showing who made the last design change and when

: Domino Designer
: design, properties
Rajeev Menon3683 - 20 2007 (3)
I don't think the User Details box on the database properties gives any idea about who made the last design change to the database. Whenever something goes wrong with a database, the first thing that we want to know is who made any design change to the database and when.

Allow document links to design elements

: Domino Designer
: document, link, design, element
Mr Frunobulax385 - 23 2008 (2)
Allow document link to design elements (forms, views, agents etc) to be sent to other Notes developers.
 
If the recipient has Designer then clicking on the link will open the corresponding design element.

NotesDesignNote class

: Domino Designer
: design elements, design
Mark Demicoli11642 - 28 2010 (3)
.. extends NotesDocument (I suppose).  Would allow access to 'prohibit design/refresh' flag, Template inheritence and other options.
 
I know some of this stuff can be done using tricks, but I think it's worth formalising the class.

Action "remove flag prohibit design refresh or replace to modify"

: Domino Designer
: design, refresh, action, tool
Michael Tassati3928 - 23 2010 (1)
in domino desiger tools menu, beside "recompile all" a new action "remove flag prohibit design refresh or replace to modify" will be nice. currently i'm using ytria or teamstudio tools for this, but this funktion is basic and so IBM Lotus should create it.

Policies for Replication Settings

: Domino Server / Admin Tools
: replication, policy, design, forms
Keith Brooks6783 - 06 2008 (0)
Right now there is NO way to use an API or exposed program method to write an agent which will check or uncheck the replication advanced options which would prevent design and form updates.
This is useful when doing a slow progressive migration or upgrade from r5 to r7 in ...

Ability to select a thread into a View based on something in a response doc

: Domino Designer
: design, views
Eric Wilson1601 - 28 2010 (0)
I wish a selection formula could select a main doc an all its responses into a view based on anything in the respones
 
This would be very useful when building view such as all the threads a user has psoted to or any thread that pertains to a subject.

There's a feature in Outlook I really like: The ability to pin a folder to the top of the nav pane.
It works like this:

Ability to Refresh/Replace a database design via code cross platform

: Domino Designer
: refresh, replace, design, java, lotus script
Vlad Sh10374 - 22 2013 (0)
Notes C API does not fit - do not cross platform.
Server task is not suitable for all, such as transfer design to the local databases.
 
NB. It would be desirable to have an option (bool paramether) that ignores and deactivates "Prohibit design refresh or replace modify" and "Prapagate ...

Replication options on the fly

Joseph Hoetzl4698 - 21 2009 (0)
I'd like an option to change the replication settings on the fly. 
 
Why:
I update a template with a minor change - let's say a new column in a view
I refresh the design from the template of the app
I hit replicate, and it has to go through ...

Oliver Regelmann4944 - 10 2009 (0)

I want to be able to include the same subform on a form multiple times.

I would like to have the ability to mark a database so that its design is not refreshed automatically by the Design task running on the server.   When set I can only update the design via a manual refresh/replace.
 
This would be very useful in situations in which a ...
