Robert Ibsen Voith4057 - 21 2008 / (25)
Not often, but sometimes, the Notes client crash! When this happen often some Notes-related tasks like ntaskldr.exe doesn't crash with it. When you try to restart the Notes client, the existance of these tasks in memory hinder a successful restart. So, for ages there has been tools like ZapNotes around to ...

Make Swiftfile available on non-Windows Clients

:Notes Client / Mail
: swiftfile, notes_client, notes
Bill Malchisky12192 - 16 2007 / (9)
The Linux and Mac Notes clients lack this powerful tool. With all clients being built on Eclipse, there should be better feature synchronization across platforms. But, it is only available on the Windows client. Sadly, IBM doesn't promote it much either and should--as it really helps people stay current with ...

Disable the default encryption for new databases

:Notes Client / Other
: notes
Mika Heinonen3778 - 24 2007 / (9)
When you create a new database, the encryption setting defaults to "Medium Encryption for Current Username". It should default to "No Encryption". Many people who are new or not so experienced in Notes don't know that encryption can make all your documents and data lost forever, if you lose your ...

Create a small, end-user friendly applciation to essentially run all of the "n*.exe" programs in the Notes program folder.
In particular, the abiltiy to run "the big three" maintenance applications against one's local databases:
(1) Fixup
(2) Compact

Option of which Email address to use on Send

:Notes Client / Mail
: email, notes, client, lotus
Keith Brooks6439 - 01 2007 / (8)
It would be nice to not need 5 or more location documents for all my emails.
While I can have one inbox, I can not have multiple outgoing email names/addresses from that one box, thus 5 different location docs/dbs, etc.
I can make personal stationery, but not personal email addresses?

Use more then one primary dictionary for instant spell checking

: notes, mail, primary dictionary, mail editing, spellcheck, spell check
Nikolay Vlasov288 - 14 2009 / (8)
I'm sure notes users from the countries who have to write letters in different languages will support my idea. I sugest to make possible to use more than one primary directory for spell cheking and to make spell checker switch between languages automaticaly. Here is an example I'm facing almost ...

Faster Notes Client !!

:Notes Client / Other
: speed, fast, slow, notes, client
Thomas Leriche1803 - 13 2009 / (6)
RAM and network are big dependencies, but application speed is the single most important feature of any software application. If IBM could make Lotus Notes the fastest email client on the planet they would surely grab back a huge chunk of market share.  This is as basic as it gets.... we ...

Lotus Notes Express

:Notes Client / Mail
: notes, express
Edson Oliveira252 - 10 2007 / (5)
I think a good idea is create a Notes Client only for POP3 and SMTP, with the same interface of Notes Client Full. The objective is have another choice for personal mail, and training of the end users with the Lotus Notes Interface. Today many users using the Lotus Notes ...

6 ideas for Lotus Notes calendar functions

Didier Boullery227 - 03 2010 / (5)
Here are ideas (coming from the Europe Innovation Hub discussion forum) about the Lotus Notes calendar functions: 1) When a user receives an invitation, he would need a "propagate" function whereby he submits back to the meeting owner a list of names to be invited in ...

Ability to 'undo' mail deletions and folder moves

:Notes Client / Mail
: notes, mail, folders, delete
Stuart McIntyre1781 - 04 2009 / (5)
Notes undo functionality needs significant improvement.
One of the areas where this is particularly obvious is around message management.  If I delete a message or move it to a folder incorrectly (say by drag/dropping onto the wrong folder) then I have to go and manually retrieve/move it.
The ...

Day-At-A-Glance Activity Item Strike-through

:Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: notes, client, calendar, notes_client, sidebar
Bill Malchisky12192 - 09 2008 / (5)
The side bar in the ND8 client has a nifty Day-At-A-Glance feature. Problem is that when you have multiple appointments/reminders/ToDo items, as you accomplish things and the day progresses, it looks like you still have a full plate.
Create the option to strike-through entries in the panel applet, so ...

Import and export bookmarks

:Notes Client / Other
: notes, html, import, export
Jochen Sack732 - 08 2011 / (5)
I wish for Notes menu actions to import and export bookmarks to/from Text files (likely in html or xml format).
The main reason why I want this is because in my experience bookmark.nsf breaks every once in a while. Often one has to nuke it and replace by a new ...

Properties Dialog Box

Bill Whittakers1900 - 22 2007 / (4)
Enable the properties box to be resized (as can be done with the open database dialog).

Fix ?OpenForm method of the notes:// protocol

:Notes Client / Other
: notes, // protocol
Craig Boudreaux250 - 11 2009 / (4)
Currently (in version 7.0) the notes:// protocol function ?openform is not dependable.  There are times when a user will get an error that the design element is not found, even if the form is in the database.  (It apparently has something to do with if the form was in the ...

Creating file links in notes documents

:Notes Client / Other
: notes, attachment, file, link
Erik Borse282 - 28 2008 / (4)
Why not being able to create file-links the same way as attachments?
Most/all enterprises have fileshares and today the most common negative feedback we get from our users on notes is the complexity to create file-links. This also genereates a lot of unessesary attachemnts in mails.
Why not have ...

Slawek Rogulski9372 - 30 2007 / (4)
Ben Langhinrichs pointed out that there is some notes.ini magic to solve this.
The magic line:
Explanation on Andre Guirard's blog (Andre's very first post)

Notes 8 Standard Client Crashes should be easy to troubleshoot

:Notes Client / Other
: crash, troubleshooting, notes, 8, standard, client
Craig Wiseman24988 - 26 2008 / (4)
The 8.x Standard client should have a standard and easy way to troubleshoot crashes/problems. Now, when the Expeditor-part of the Standard client crashes it gives a pug-ugly and more importantly USELESS and huge error box (like the attached image). Troubleshooting the cause is very painful (like this)! When the ...

Al Perkins80 - 16 2008 / (4)
I want exactly what I can do in Google Maps for Notes, Symphony, Firefox, i.e., any application that has a moveable screen.  O.k.  what am I saying?  If you go to Google Maps, and search for a location, when that location becomes available the cursor becomes a hand.  That hand ...

Ensure delete keyboard shortcut works if focus is on message text

:Notes Client / Mail
: notes, mail, delete
Stuart McIntyre1781 - 04 2009 / (4)
One of my real irritations with mail in the Notes client, especially with the three-column view in Notes 8.x.
When you have focus on the message itself in the preview pane, rather than on the message in the inbox view, the delete shortcut (e.g. backspace on the Mac) ceases ...
