Rohit P106 - 27 2014 / (0)
Usually in Lotus Notes we have an option to archive the inbox and other folders. Could a similar approach be used to archive the wiki/activities/forums etc within a community? The archive option can be based on the Quarter/Half year or a complete year settings. This would ease out access ...

Give Administrators better control over Deletions

: Connections
: communities blogs wikis activities deletion removal
Sean Burgess6178 - 19 2012 / (0)
Currently, administrators have no control over what happens when an owner deletes a community/wiki/blog/activity. There is no soft deletion capability. There is no way of easily restoring it to the environment if the deletion was done errorneously or maliciously. There is no way to limit some owners to do everything but ...

Zoltan Szabo4849 - 25 2012 / (0)
Hi All,
I QuickR for Domino there is an in-place viewer for uploaded files. This should be available in both Connections and QuickR for WS.
It's better to pre-view the contents of a prezentation or a document then downloading it. This saves network, diskspace.

Cristina Cannone184 - 20 2011 / (0)
How about adding a twistie (pointing downward/upward) in Lotus Connections Communities'  discussion threads? The best CVs are written from the latest job downward, and this is how I wish I could read posts in LC communities at times. 
If technically doable, please add a small triangle icon beside each discussion title ...

James Carroll246 - 30 2011 / (0)
I would llike the ability to set up a controlled list of index terms (tags) to be used to tag files, etc.  When searching by tags you'll only find those tags that are spelled exactly like the word you're using.  With IBM's attachment to TLAs, you can't always count on ...

: subforum restriction
Tinus Riyanto2825 - 11 2011 / (0)
Currently in version 3.x forum are flat, there is no ability to create subforums. Comparing forums with community (which has sub-community) it would be nice if forums also have this.
If it does, it would also be logical that the sub-forums would have a more granular access restriction than ...

Number of rows

Urs Meli3587 - 07 2011 / (0)
Make the number of rows persistent.
If I select 50 rows in blogs, I'd like to have the 50 rows again in wikis or the search.
I personally don't like paging with only 10 entries.
Can't it be 10, 25, 50, 100 or continuous ?
