There is another idea for Full DXL Round-trip, but it is for both design and data. This idea hopes to take smaller bites of the elephant that is DXL support. Lotus should begin by making design elements 100% round-trippable in the next version of Notes. This would open many doors ...
When i create a mail-in database document i must have the database filename in the clipboard for pasting it in the field "File name". Therefore i would like to have a button for choosing the database.
In addition I would like to have a button "create database" in the ...
Please make the Filename field in the Database Dialog box scrollable if the path and file name is too long.
I wish we have a programming API to access and edit the mail database, the
personal address book and the Domino Directory
The API must support LotusScript and Java.
It is not professional to create a document with field and than find ...
The standard RGB color picker is just not enough for real application development. It would be better if the color schemes for an application can be stored in the application itself. Then, when developing, the stored colors in the database are the ones that can be picked easily (not the ...
I would like the 64GB limit on NSF and DB2NSF databases to be greatly increased. This limit has been in place since 5.0 and it causes serious problems for large and complex applications. Our web applications store hundreds of GB of medical data (mostly XML and other structured text formats) and ...
Sometimes my users delete a document in a DB and after that they couldn´t remember that they have deleted it. So I would have the option to see which person deleted a document. Maybe in the DB Access log or somewhere else.
In cases where only one or two databases are corrupted for whatever reason, it would be so convenient to block access to the database to all except Full Access Administrators so that maintenance tasks can be run without interference.
If this were available, it would be best if any attempted ...
A multi-threaded update / Indexer task which does more in parallel than multiple update tasks!
with a simple copy and paste (in a rich text field) you can easily see all the properties, instead of having to go through the 7 individual tabs.
when the workspace is being maintained for the notes client it can help us to include a default set of icons to choose as database icon, just like you have in your system when you customize the icon for a folder (see image).
not so originally, but sometimes a timesaver
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 ...
WebDAV is currently only supported for design documents. Why not be able to use WebDAV as a protocol to create, edit and delete Notes documents? We could enrich our mashed up user experience with a cool Notes database integration in the Explorer.
Why does Lotus Domino suffer from incomplete ...
For a better overview "which name has a 'master template'?" i would like to have another column "master template" in the admin client.
For a better administration of disabled resource it would be nice if there is a red X for disabled resources shown in the "Resources" view.
This proposal is going to be a bit disruptive, but a purely optional enhancement only to be added when needed.
Lotus Notes is especially popular for its very tolerant database. You can simply add a field to a document or a form. You don't have to change the database schema ...
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.
I don't know about the rest of you, but I find Activity Logging and Activity Trends to be a really useful feature. Unfortunately, since it was introduced in 6 (or was it 6.5?) there have been very little updates to it, other than making the Tivoli Analyzer free in 7....
We can get all groups of the current user by '@UserNamesList', we can see all groups of any user by 'Effective access...' of the ACL dialog, but we can't get all groups of any user without programming tedious code.
What about an optional parameter 'UserName' for @UserNamesList and/or method Database.queryAccessNamesList(userName)?...
I am sure I am not the only one that is, or in the future will, be developing applications in a mixed-client environment. Today some (most) of our users are on R5, while other are running Notes 7.0.
This idea comes from the article 'Date fields in your format' on www.codestore.net.
The idea is basically to have the ability to specify date formatting on a database level instead on design element micro level (view column, form field).
At this moment I am working on an application that ...
I suggest to add a new property to the NotesDatabase object to store version (application version eg.: 2.13.04 ) info. I think everybody used a "v.2.3" kind of extension in the title or in the About Document.
If a version property would be added to the ...
We have a general Shared Code Library that contains re-usable Subroutines and Functions. Each time we start building a new app we put in a new copy of the Shared Code Library. Unfortunately each developer changes/adds routines in that library. It would be cool if we could have a central ...
Ever accidentally deleted a database? It can't be that hard to use the Recycle Bin on Windows Platforms instead of effecting an irriversible file system deletion.
This should occur at the API level so that all methods of deleting databases use the OS recycle bin if available.
In a resource reservation database you can enable an agent "Purge Documents" which removes reservations older than 2 days.
I would like to have an agent for archiving old reservations, because we have a car pool and need in some situations (f.e. parking ticket or speed ticket fine) a detection ...
Instead of creating several resources for i.e. video projectors use a counter with the free amount of the resource. Example: Video Projector (one resource document), available: 5 items. If one gets booked, the available items will be set to 4 etc.
or to use Scott's example (thanks for that) ...
In the Notes client when a user select "File\Database\Open..." is possible to select more than one database at once to be added to the desktop like "windows mode".
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.
I updated my enviroment to domino 8.0.0 ... but since 8.0.0 Lotus Domino will create autom. a redirection file on the domino server when a user + his mailfile is deleted (it seamed adminP is doing this).
For example if every month 150 user will leave your woldwide company ...
While other programs (tags2find,...) allow you to tag your documents on you local machine would it be a tought to have the ability to tag the databases on your workspace or installed on your local machine?
From a tagcloud then I could open a tagged database?
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).
It should be interesting to adhere to this language for accessing Notes data : http://www.unqlspec.org/display/UnQL/Home
It may open new perspectives for the use of Domino (on the web).
when copying a database, the new icon doesn't appear on the workspace until the copy is complete, and when it does, the title and template name is blank.
For very large dbs, or slow connections it can take some time before the copy completes, if you get distracted before ...
a good option for downloads in Firefox that you have the option to open a file highlighted in its containing folder. I guess it would be helpful to have something for (local) databases on your workspace.
If we could extend this form property (include in menu) to be available when right-click a database from the workspace a lot of times we avoid that in a default frame a view is being loaded from which the index will be rebuilt first.
Okej, this is inproper application ...
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 ...
