Notes Client / folder 


Let users copy text from views to the clipboard

: Notes Client / Other
: notes, client, view, folder, copy, clipboard, text
Richard Schwartz4594 - 19 2007 / (0)
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 ...

Change file location where Notes opens attachments

: Notes Client / Other
: attachment, file, location, folder, temporary
Brad Harris170 - 26 2007 / (0)
An annoying feature of Notes that I would dearly love to change is as follows...

You know how when you open an attachment on a mail document, it opens it in the temp directory under the Documents and Settings\UserName\Temp\notes???? folder? Often you forget after making modifications to ...

Stop collapsing folders when I remove a folder

: Notes Client / Mail
: mail, folder
Bruce Currier9788 - 07 2008 / (1)
I hate that every time I go to remove a folder I no longer need,  it collapses my whole folder structure.  I have a nested folder structure that I've spent a bit of time creating, and I have a number of them I like to always have open (the ones ...

Open dialog after attachment save

: Notes Client / Other
: attachment, open, save, dialog, folder, run
Tomas Ekström1523 - 04 2008 / (0)
After saving attachments to disk, I would like to have a dialog where I can select either to run/open the files saved or to open the destination folder.
Why not a download list as in Firefox put in the sidebar?!
Needs to be optional and integrated into policies.

Add "Mark All Read" on Mail Folder Right-click Menu

: Notes Client / Mail
: mail, folder, read
Bill Malchisky12192 - 08 2010 / (0)
You see a folder with "(82)" unread messages, rather than open, press ctrl-A, mark all selected as read; just right click the folder icon and be done with it. Sure, not all folders and users will want this. For folders with mail rules and reports or server messages, just allows ...

Change icon of a folder

: Notes Client / Other
: folder, icon
Patrick Kwinten21314 - 30 2009 / (0)
This idea came after reading a post of Stephan Wissel:
All my folders look the same (and boring). It would be nice if I could define which icon I want to use for a folder (similar as in Windoooows)

Move to folder dialog enhancements

: Notes Client / Other
: folder, move, enhancements
Norbert Lacko95 - 01 2008 / (0)
It would be nice to enhance Move to folder dialog by the option to initially display folder tree collapsed, or to preselect last used folder.

For iNotes, provide an "Add" button to the Move to Folder dialog box

: Notes Client / Other
: inotes, move, folder
Bill Malchisky12192 - 10 2010 / (0)
When moving a message into a folder, like the Notes client, sometimes you want it in two folders. the Copy to folder, Move to Folder dance introduces the Notes client gripe of "too many clicks". Simplify the design, unless there is some technical limitation preventing should be easy to ...

Improvements to "shared folders"

: Notes Client / Mail
: folders, folder, linking
Kevin Mort217 - 16 2009 / (0)

Allow a user to publish a shared folder in their mail db and create a link to it which other users could add to their own mail db's left-hand navigator/outline in the mail db. Perhaps "Other Folders"

This is not entirely unlike the "other mail" or "show calendars" calendar federation options currently ...


Warn/prevent user when using non-autorized chars in folder name

: Notes Client / Mail
: folder name, folder
Mathieu Pape8090 - 05 2013 / (0)
When a user creates a folder containing (\) or (/) for example, he/she is not warned that this is not authorized, same if total folder length is too long, ... . The system allows it to be created and thus can generate a lot of issues. I have a user here with ...

Do not clear/collapse focus of selected view items after action taken.

: Notes Client / Other
: folder, view, selected documents
Kevin Mort217 - 17 2009 / (0)
Ok so what we're looking for here is a product of a discussion with the more Windows centric folks at a customer site.
The belief is that it is a MS standard UI guideline that a group of selected items, once an action is taken on them, the selected ...

Drag & Drop Folder Move CONFIRMATION

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: drag and drop, folder, folders, email
Ryan Benech144 - 09 2012 / (1)
PROBLEM: Accidentaly drag a mail folder "somewhere"...
Solution: Prevent accidental folder moves by providing an option to confirm the drop after it has happened.
Lotus Notes has caused many frustrations over the years.  One common frustration I have heard from various sources (i.e. ) has been that the ...

Local database: Open containing folder

: Notes Client / Other
: local, database, folder, open
Patrick Kwinten21314 - 01 2008 / (0)
for local databases the option to open just the containing folder would be a timesaver to navigate through your local data structure (see attached image).

Have the "Folder" column of the "All Docs" view also available in iNotes

: Notes Client / iNotes
: all documents, folder
Mathieu Pape8090 - 05 2014 / (0)
IMHO a very useful and quick piece of information, not available in iNotes though.

Link or application in startup folder should only start in one location

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: startup, folder, location
Martin Vogel2501 - 20 2007 / (0)
In certain cases it would be useful when some links in the startup folder would started only in one location. In my situation i want to start a CTI application only in the location: Office (Network)

Delegate folder to another mail-box

: Notes Client / Mail
: mail, archiving, delegation, folder
Patrick Kwinten21314 - 02 2010 / (0)
We do not use activities, so a feature as written above could be in that service.
When you hand-over projects it would be great to send/forward/delegate a folder with content to a collegue.
Most simple would be the option to select the folder and choose 'forward folder'. ...

Suggest folder while you send mail

: Notes Client / Mail
: mail, folder
Subrahmanya Udupa59 - 20 2013 / (0)
There should be an optional text box in the mail header somewhere next to Subject field. Mail sender can enter a folder name in that before sending mail. For e.g. HR\DressCode, Finance\Policy, ProjectName\releaseName etc.
When he hits the send button, the sent mail is parked automatically in the folder.
When ...

Share a database folder and all the documents in it

: Notes Client / Mail
: acl, folder, database
Peter Moline1474 - 29 2007 / (0)
I often get requests from users asking how they can grant access to folders in their mail file to a colleague. eg. they're working on a project and they want to share just the e-mails in one or two folders.
For a product is all about collaboration, I'm amazed there ...
