HCL Connections Ideas Portal

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.

Connections Web document open methods

There are 3 different methods to open an object - 1.) click on the icon - file is opened read-only, 2.) click on the link - file is opened in read-write mode, 3.) click on download button - file is downloaded with no Connections menu items in Word/Excel and no automatic upload capabilities.

There should be an option to configure users only to enable the read-write mode with all Connections menu items to handle an object within Connections. Only power users should get the other option - like download (and break connectivitiy to the Connections tore) or read-only/display only an object because for many users all 3 different options to open an file is too confusing.
