Welcome to the HCL Connections Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated by the HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.
For more information and upcoming events, please visit our HCL Connections page.

Remember Last Filter setting in Community Overview
Because the "My communities" overview shows every community that you visited once. This overview show many communities. There is a filter option to filter on "I am owner". But you need to set that filter every time you go to communities.
