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.
One of the things I miss the most on the Connections Communities is the lack of a community calendar. Communities usually have events, calls, meetings, and so on ... it would be very usefull to have a community calendar functionality ... then it could support iCAL and we would be ...
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.
In Activities you can assign a to-do to a single named individual, or 'anyone' - if assigned to 'anyone', then any member of the activity can mark it as complete.
What I think might be quite cool was if you were able to assign a to-do to multiple named ...
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 ...
The Lotus product range is very inconsistent when it comes to manging user photos.
You can paste them into a Domino directory to use in Notes. Sametime wants them added to the jpegPhoto field in the LDAP directory. Whereas Quickr wants them available via a WebService (but gives no ...
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 ...
IBM should provide a licensing model for service providers to offer their great Social Software products for delivery by hosting companies. The current per user model does not fit well with social software offerings since an effective social community should be viral and not constrained by per user licensing..."we would ...
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? ...
A few months ago I had the chance to try and use Tivoli Directory Integrator. The goal is to try and sync information (from Active Directory to a Lotus Notes Database and between Lotus Notes databases). After installation I thought that I would try the sync between nsf first. It ...
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 ...
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"
Show a given set of widget to a user according to a profilation made ( by org, by company, by an LDAP attribute,...). Every group of users see a different homepage according to their profilation.
Give the user the ability to control which tab is the defaul upon sign-on.
