New Workspace

Thomas Leriche1803 - 07 2009 / (15)
I'm really tired of the 1980's design of the workspace.  It has served Notes users well for over 20 years, but the time has come for a major and I mean MAJOR overhaul.  I look at the slick interfaces for iPhones, Blackberry, even Windows and wonder why my Notes workspace ...

Grey Workspace, still after all these years?

:Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: workspace
Keith Brooks6439 - 08 2007 / (9)
I am tired of a grey background, or blue or whatever color my system uses that I can choose.
I want to have bmps, jpgs, animated ones even would be cool.
The younger generation wants easily customizable solutions.
Would it be so hard to just have a preference to change ...

Include mini progress bar in workspace icons (new workspace)

:Notes Client / Other
: workspace icons, workspace
Bas van Gestel2994 - 05 2010 / (9)
 As part of the new workspace IBM might (and IMHO should) develop for Lotus Notes, a nice feature would be to have progress bars on the workspace icons, indicating that the application is currently replicating or copying.
Kinda like the Installing progress bars on the iPhone icons.
Not ...

Right-click, Arrange by..., in workspace pages

: workspace, sort, arrange, right-click
Karen Demerly348 - 01 2007 / (6)
I'd like to be able to arrange my database icons by name, etc. on my workspace pages.  Like I can on my desktop.

New function "Clean-up workspace/bookmarks"

:Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: workspace
Hynek Kobelka7940 - 04 2007 / (6)
I'd like to have a function which would allow me to "clean" my workspace from invalid chicklets and bookmarks.
It should do the following:
  • test for each local chicklet if the appropriate database really exists
  • test all chicklets for a specified server, if the appropriate database ...

Option to set a default workspace page to open

:Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: workspace, tabs, default, setting, page
Patrick Kwinten21314 - 19 2008 / (5)

organising workspaces pages are a crime nowadays.

why not have the option to set a workspace page as a default workspace page to be opened at startup?

this would avoid that I have to move my favourite databases at a moment to the first workspace page


Put the unread count in the workspace tab

David Bailey1383 - 24 2009 / (5)
Google Mail and Google Reader display the unread count in the browser tab. I would like to see this in Notes Client Workspace tabs, too.

Workspace Search Facility

Atul Sehgal103 - 05 2007 / (4)

A facilitty to search for databases whose icons exists on different workspace pages will help. Being a Notes/Domino Admin I have a lot of workspace icons on my workspace. Though I have created mutiple pages workspace and have categorized the Db icons accordingly. Stil it takes time to go through  different ...


Select if application icons are stacked or not on each application

:Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: icon, replica, stack, workspace
Tomas Ekström1523 - 14 2008 / (4)
In the classic workspace property you have the option to show replica icons stacked or not. In the grided bookmark (workspace view of bookmarks) they are always stacked. I would like to be able to select on an application level wich one is going to be show'n as a stacked ...

add database-icons of newly opened db's to a dedicated workspace tab

:Notes Client / Other
: workspace, tab, icon, database
Patrick Kwinten21314 - 20 2010 / (4)
if you open a database that is new to your workspace the database icon is added to the workspace tab of the currently opened database.
I would prefer that you can point to a dedicated tab in the preference where by default the icons will be placed under.

Support for workspace using drag and drop

Vlad Sh10679 - 24 2009 / (4)
  1. Add the ability to drag tabs of workspace.
  2. Add support to drag and drop the file (nsf, ntf, box) from browser of the operating system to the workspace (the application's icon should be created automatically).
  3. Add the ability to drag and drop applications (nsf, ntf, box) from Admin ...

Ability to manipulate Workspace

:Notes Client / Other
: workspace, notes
David Camara1093 - 08 2007 / (3)
I still use the old workspace to access my databases but I find we don't have enough visibility and control over it. Ideally I'd like to open the desktop.dsk and be able to see 'Icons by server',  'by page', 'by title', 'by date open', 'by replica id', 'by filename' ... ...

Bring back "Show as workspace"

:Notes Client / Other
: workspace, bookmarks
Oliver Regelmann6412 - 05 2007 / (3)
I really liked the "show as workspace" feature for bookmark folders in ND6 and 7. It provided an easy way to open various databases with few clicks and allowed to organize the old workspace tabs into groups (each folder containing its own tabs). I had some of these workspaces open ...

Allow tabs on Workspace to be re-arranged

:Notes Client / Other
: tabs, workspace
Jos Janssen1809 - 21 2007 / (3)

The only way that I know off  to re-arrange tabs is to create a new tab move all databases from the old one to the new one and then delete the old tab. If you have many databases on that tab , it is quite time consuming.


workspace management

:Notes Client / Other
: workspace
Jan Flipsen174 - 29 2008 / (3)
I would really like that the workspace (Yes i still use it and love it) is more manageable. For instance:
- Every new db link should be placed in a special tab in the workspace so you could easier delete the one's you don't want
- Cleanup agent (is also ...

Workspace Tabs

: autosave, tabs, workspace
Jim Roysdon1264 - 23 2008 / (3)
There are times when my client locks up or worse, crashes. I've had multiple tabs open (mail, calendar, documents, etc). These were things that needed my attention and that got interupted when the client locked up. There should be a way to to save the tabs, as we do in ...

Sub-Pages / Sub-Tabs in the workspace

:Notes Client / Other
: workspace, tab, tabs, register, page
Angi Blasberg612 - 20 2008 / (3)

My problems to organize DB-Icons in the workspace would be solved much better, if I could get at least one level of sub-tabs/sub-pages in a workspace-page. 

I personally miss the bookmarks from Notes 5 to 7 because i had the possibility with subfolders. I am obviously really alone with this ...


Fix Alt-Left Arrow and Alt-Right Arrow to navigate left and right through the tabs properly

:Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: workspace, navigation, client, ctrl+tab, alt+arrow
David Hablewitz15116 - 06 2009 / (3)
Alt-Left Arrow and Alt-Right Arrow currently navigate backward and forward through the history of items opened.  sort of.  A more logical response to these commands is to cycle left and right through the tabs currently opened.
The current response to Alt-Left Arrow doesn't always go back to the last ...

Databases as application bundles in workspace

Mark Sta Ana432 - 27 2008 / (2)
Now that we moved away from Databases to Applications as a concept ;) Why use the stack feature (currently used to keep replicas together) to keep related applications together.

You know the scenario, you have a front-end database that the user clicks on, but you still separate databases for ...
