HCL Connections | Product 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.

    also https://domino-ideas.hcltechsw.com/ideas is broken due to a invalid DNS record entry.
    Chrome and Internet Explorer ignore the invalid DNS entry and render the site, Firefox and Chromium can't render the site.
