New view export/import formats (*.XLS)

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: export, view
Hynek Kobelka7940 - 02 2007 / (1)
Let us export and import to MS-Excel (*.xls) format.
(Many people don't know what a "Tabular-Text" or „Comma-Separated-File“ is.)
And while you are at it:  
  • Why not also to *.ODF and *.PDF and *.HTML ?
  • Automatically add the proper extension to the file. (The users don't know ...

Show categorized columns when displaying search results

: Notes Client / Other
: categorized, view
Jos Janssen1809 - 07 2007 / (0)

Most databases used categorized views. In my opinion they are one of the best features of Notes.Another great feature is the full text search. Sadly when you use these together, the view no longer shows the categories. (unless you choose to "Show all documents (Sortable)" That is to bad since ...


'collapse all but current' in views

: Notes Client / Other Database Applications
: view, collapse
Edward Scott641 - 05 2008 / (0)
When using a database in a notes client I frequently find myself wanting to collapse all categories except the one I am browsing. Unfortunately this is a pain -- the easiest way to do this is to click the 'collapse all' button, then re-expand the category I was previously viewing. ...

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 ...

Double click to adjust view column width

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: view, column, width
Starrow Pan5103 - 14 2008 / (0)
Just as you can do in Excel, double click the column edge to adjust its length to fit the content.
I've searched and found no similar ideas. Sorry if it has existed.

"Collapse all when database is first opened" view property needs to be fixed

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: view
Michael Sobczak2837 - 31 2007 / (0)
The Notes client never completely collapses a Notes view that displays a document-response hierarchy.  Even if you enable the If the Collapse all when database is first opened and Go to top row properties, Notes will collapse everything else in the view *** EXCEPT *** the thread containing the last ...

Alternate Text for View Column Icons

: Notes Client / Other
: icon, alternate, view, column
Jordan Tenjeras1191 - 20 2008 / (0)

I want to be able to specify alternate text based on code for an icon displayed in a view column. Similar to the alt attribute of <img>.  I'm imagining something like the way the foreground/background color is specified such as:

     field  = "1"; 92 : @Formula( somefield ...


In a view display pictures which are stored in documents

: Notes Client / Other Database Applications
: view, atta
Hynek Kobelka7940 - 15 2009 / (0)
In a view we can display icons and image ressources.
However we cannot display a picture which is stored directly inside of the document.
It would be nice to have this option for displaying thumbnails of attachments, photos of users , ....
PS: And it should be easily ...

Fix the alignment of custom icons in views

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: view, icons, alignment
Jens Polster2418 - 17 2009 / (0)
In a view with multiline entries custom icons (image resources) are aligned "middle" (vertically centered), whereas standard icons (referenced by number) are aligned "top" (see screen shot).
I would suggest to also align custom icons "top" for a consistent display.
An option to control the vertical alignment of text and ...

View\Go to menu option to be available in any context

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: view, go to
Paul Davies13558 - 17 2008 / (0)
The menu option view\Go to... [view dialog] is only available if you already have a view open or from the workspace. If you have a page open, then it is not available.
This option should be made available in any context.

Bring back start monthly calendar view with current week

: Notes Client / Calendar
: calendar, view
Ben Jenkins145 - 21 2008 / (0)
In mail template versions previous to version 8.x, a user could select a calendar view option to "Start monthly view with current week." In version 8.x templates this is missing and you can only view the current calendar month rather than the next four weeks.

Bring back the Two Week view in the Notes Client

: Notes Client / Calendar
: notes client, calendar, view
Eric March640 - 21 2009 / (0)
The "Two Week" calendar view is no longer available when using the Notes 8.5 client.  Interestingly enough, the view does exist when using iNotes.

Auto filter function for Notes View

: Notes Client / Other
: filter, view
Patrick Kwinten21314 - 12 2009 / (0)
Maybe , when a flat Notes view could have an auto filter function just like in spreadsheet programs than it would be less necessary to create export functions for Notes Views.
@setviewinfo just filters the first column.

Lotus Knows: Split Screens for Multiple Tabs = Increased Productivity!

: Notes Client / Mail
: notes, symphony, view, display, productivity
Enzo Frati130 - 18 2009 / (0)
Ability to view your tab'd aplications within your Notes client on separate screens.
This would be particularly useful for integrated apps like Symphony with its doc and spreadsheet tools.
Essentially allowing you to view both apps on a single (or dual) screen without having to flip back and forth between ...

Don't freeze the client when I perform a 'Search This View' action

: Notes Client / Other
: view, search
Patrick Kwinten21314 - 26 2010 / (0)
when I perform a search on a view via he 'Search this view' option my Notes client is frozen for a dozen of secons, depending on the size of the view.
I would rather like to be able to work with other tabs in the mean time.

Incorporate a 'Groups by members' or 'Groups by People' view in the NAB by default

: Notes Client / Other Database Applications
: nab, view
Christopher Boote10606 - 14 2012 / (0)
Just about everywhere I go these is some variation on a view of groups categorised by members
Having one by default would at least mean that code we use to address this view (e.g.. a lookup to find all groups a person is in) would be consistent

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 ...

Database property to clear users view-resorting-settings on database open

: Notes Client / Other Database Applications
: view, sorting
Hynek Kobelka7940 - 15 2009 / (0)
Many views allow the user to resort them by some column. Such a resort-setting is "remembered" even when the user leaves and reopens the database or even restart his notes-client. Even that this functionality is nice for mail-views in many other applications it causes many support-calls by inexperient users.

Additional "Reservations" view "By site / location"

: Notes Client / Other Database Applications
: resource, reservation, database, view, site
Martin Vogel2501 - 21 2007 / (0)
For a better overview (if you have a lot of resources in different sites (locations)) it would be helpful for users if they would have an additional reservation view which is sorted / categorized by site.

View Unread warning

: Notes Client / Mail
: unread, view, warning
Joe Puglisi601 - 20 2008 / (0)
Users inadvertently clicking the View Unread button, then claiming their e-mail disappeared could be avoided by a simple message box. "Are you sure you only want to view unread e-mails? Read messages will not be displayed" or something to that effect.

Thread link

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: view, copy, link
Paul Davies13558 - 01 2007 / (0)

Even since R3, I have thought that the view link would be more useful if it would open a view and move the selection point to the document in the view that was selected when the view was copied as a link.

That way you can link to an entire ...


Wait While View is Loading Message

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: view
Dwain Wuerfel2555 - 16 2011 / (0)
It would be really cool if a button could be added under the message shown in a view, see attachment, when it is going to take some time to refresh/rebuild and allow you to see the documents that would send you a simple message like below.

Al Perkins80 - 16 2008 / (0)
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 ...

View Navigation more impervious to document updates

: Notes Client / Other Database Applications
: view, notes client, agents
Mike Woolsey4870 - 20 2011 / (0)
When a view gets dirtied during a scroll-up, the navigation sequence (pgUp, pgDn) flies to the top or bottom of the view collection. I'd like it if something could be done to address that issue.
Something like that's also happening, apparently much more often, to NotesViewCategory objects. The view ...
