Make a STOP button next to the Open button that does exactly what Ctrl+Break does. Right now, that's just the super-secret keystroke for power users only.
UPDATE: Just to clarify, there IS a Stop button in the toolbar today. But it's not useful, because when your client is in ...
[Idea comes live from a Paul Mooney and Susan Bulloch session a Lotusphere]
The administrator can restrict the size of attachments that can be sent using the server. The openNTF mail experience template enforces that limit at the client. It would be a good if the IBM mail template ...
In earlier versions of Notes you could use ctrl+tab to switch between the tabs you have open in the client (i.e. the databases and documents currently open in the ui). This functionality is missing from the Eclipse based Notes 8 client.
As far as I understand ctrl+tab is a ...
Sometimes I want only some paragraphs of text to be printed, and not the whole document. If the documents are large, I almost need a whole tree just to have those 2 paragraphs on paper.
If I want some text of a memo next to me (f.e. if I'm solving ...
I often have to forward several emails at once. When doing so, the forward flag only gets added to the first email. It would be helpful to know that each was forwarded especially when going back through old emails or archives.
...and not have tasks running in the background like notes2.exe, which often result in unsuccessfull client restarts og db fixup if computer is restarted before tasks has closed down grazefully.
An idea is to have a prompt with a process bar/circle indicating the Notes Client is closing, like:...
Checkbox (and radio button) fields should have user-definable limits and the text of each item in the list should wrap within the confines of those limits.
It royally sucks to have a nicely formatted table go horribly wrong when a checkbox option gets too long and throws off your ...
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 ...
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?
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 ...
If you use different IDs for your admin und "normal" work, it would be great if you could start two clients, one with the admin, one with the normal ID.
This was (and is) possible with the basic client via starting "nlnotes.exe =Path/To/notes.ini". I want that also ...
I want it to be possible to select all text in properties boxes, like the database path, servername etc.
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 ...
In Notes 6.5, 7, and Notes 8 Basic clients, you can set policies that determines users' IM settings like so (see screen shots).
This made set up and config easy for users.
AFAIK,, these policies don't apply to Notes 8 Standard users. ...
Based on some recent experience the Notes client does a very poor job of rendering HTML mail. As far as I can tell the problem relates to the clients interpretation of inline css.
Assuming that an email contains compliant CSS 1.0 instructions and XHTML I'd expect it to render well and currently it ...
Based upon the comments of many people doing upgrades to 8.5.1 It seems like opportunity still exists for the install experience to be made a more positive one. Amongst the areas I believe need improving:-
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 ...
The Mac client lacks the ability to flag text within a rich text field as passthru HTML. What's more, when you're editing an existing document that contains passthru HTML (presumably done on a Windows client), even touching the existing passthru is an invitation to a world of hurt.
I can create a doc link by drag&dropping an opened document tab into a document's richtext field.
I can create a database link by drag&dropping an opened database tab into a document's richtext field.
However, I cannot create a view link that way. I'm limited to use the options in ...
I often write eMails in german with english words... (or I write a german or a english email... )
Every time I need to switch between these two dictionaries. I know how to do but many users doesn´t know or it need to much time... A good ...
Infact...make it easier.
It appears that the 8.0 mail template does not allow the function Ive come to use so often. Instruct a user to view the page source of a spam message and then Fwd that to me for processing.
I have included this link to 3 screen ...
We are looking for a way to "Drag and Drop" Mails from the Inbox to a Lotus Standard Application like Teamroom or Document Library. This should be possible within the new Notes Client Standard 8 and Eclipse ?!
We know quickr, but quickr follows another way.
Some of my messages get sent to folders without my seeing them, but I want some of my messages to be delivered to my inbox so I'm aware of them, and as soon as I've read them I want them to go into a specific folder -- with no action ...
I love the new action in the Inbox in Notes Mail that replicates mail now. However, I work in several discussion and production databases where I find myself looking for the yin-yang "replicate now" icon that I've become used to in the Inbox. Often, I want to shut down but ...
Facility to add icon on hotspot buttons like we have icon option on action buttons.
Not just thinking about the IdeaJam site in particular but also the commercial application of what Bruce/Matt and the team have built:
Would a Notes 8 standard client plug-in like the current Quick reminder or Quick Memo be useful if it could be used to create new ideas in this ...
We recently faced with some issues while setting up notes clients during a server failure. The home mail server was in a cluster of 2 members and we had to keep the server down for a long period of time to trouble shoot the problem. During this period some users ...
To make the Notes client as cool and sexy to use as a growing number of applications (including Web browsers), provide a series of out of the box skins/themes/personas for the Notes client along with a tool that allows customization. Something like this may make Notes appear more modern to ...
Since R8, the Mail view has had a nifty refresh icon, that is clever enough to know to kick off a replication process if a local replica is being used.
However, that tool seems to only be available in the Mail db.
I'd like it to be available ...
When shutdown Lotus Notes it needs some time to end all tasks - when you restart Notes in this time, it will be slow in startup. Bring a progress bar to show that client is shuting down (or close tasks immediately).
I know that Notes 7 and Notes 8 already provide the option to sort mail by subject, so I am preparing myself for the onslaught of potential demotions.
However, my idea is to see an improvement on the subject sorting itself. I would like to see the 'Re:' and ...
I am probably not the only one who still uses the workspace. There are times when I have more icons on a workspace tab than I room for on my screen and I need to move them around.
How about a zoom in/out feature, giving more of a virtual ...
It would great to type the company name in the recipient input field and get a result list of the employee's email addresses.
Enable auto-save on all bundled templates and make it switchable within Application Advanced Settings
Auto-save of mail messages is easy to enable in recent versions of the Notes client - it's in user preferences.
Howver, it's not just mail messages that would benefit from auto-saving during editing - blog posts, wiki entries, application forms and so on are all at risk should the ...
When you receive a Lotus Notes Meeting Invite (as a participant), there are many occasions when you would like to have more people in your team attend the meeting with you. This is a suggested Lotus Notes enhancement that would benefit many Notes users.
When the Standard R8/8.01 client crashes we are presented with a long stacktrace in a dialog that is larger than my (1600 x 1050) screen. The dialog cannot be resized and isn't therefore very useful. Can it be supressed and/or made resizable?
Many user asked me why it isn´t possible to add subgroups in the sametime contact list...
IT -> Network -> Peter Muster and Sascha Blocks
IT -> Application -> Joe Do and Peter Tester
IT -> Helpdesk -> Jack Daniels and Joe Tester
this would allow ...
I would like to be able to manage the return receipt of notes mails and/or internet mails.
The administrator could administer this client setting over the "Mail"-policy .
We use roaming a lot in our organization and it is an ongoing battle to streamline the roaming setup and making sure that the roaming process is working fine. We have to look into various places like local log.nsf, replication settings in the location document etc to see if the ...
Whenever a user changes to a new location in Notes that includes a different Notes ID, the client throws up this dialog
"This Notes Client supports multiple users. To use your own private data, log into the operating system using your personal logon and relaunch Notes. Do you wish ...
When you reply to a mail a little green arrow icon will appear in the right most column of the inbox, signifying that that message has been replied to. How about jumping straight to the reply when clicking on that icon (instead of going to the thread view)?
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:
If you want to go for broke, ...
Notes 8 gradients & grey-blue it's nice but it might not be your favourite colors.
For end-users it should be easy to 'pimp' their Notes client a bit more by being able to select a colorset for the Notes client from a predefined set of 'themes'.
If I want to ...
In 8.5 client you can subscribe to published calendars, including protected Google Calendars. You can subscribe to an OfficeLive calendar if it is public, but you cannot subscribe to it if it is protected. Provide choice to subscribe to OfficeLive calendar just like you can to a Google calendar.
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 ...
Would like to have the option for a new mail notification occur upon new mail once it gets delivered to the local replica vs the server replicas. I have had several people comment on how they receive new mail notifications but "nothing appears" in the inbox. This gives the users ...
After a hard disk crash I had to installed and configured a Notes client with a recovered user-ID. During the client configuration i had to recognize that i can´t use this user ID.
Therefore I would like to have the ability to use the recovery password during the client configuration.
Not all of my email / Cal / Contacts are provided by the company Domino server. Having to swtich location documents to check mail at an internet account is huge productivity drain.
I want to see the tabs at the top function much like the Windows task bar does: shrink as more windows are being opened or allow for more than just one row of tabs. If my memory serves me right, the Notes 7 client shrunk the tabs to fit more ...
Unless it is being significantly improved, please disable IMAP on the client.
(make an Debug_enable_imap_client notes.ini setting for those who care)
Explanation: some People go and download the Notes Client trial code, and in the setup dialog there are being asked about IMAP server. Since 99,9 % of Notes ...
I would like to see different preferences for the preview pane for the framesets around the mail client. For instance, show the preview pane for the Inbox but not for the drafts or the preview pane takes up half of the screen for the inbox but only 25% for the ...
There are many cases where wrong email recipients are chosen by Lotus Notes, especially if common names like "Michael" are entered. Lotus Notes should be able to intelligently determine the recipients that the message is most likely intended for.
What would implementing this idea ...
