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.

Communities with names that contain @ sign are not ranked properly in search results

A '@' special character is causing the community name to be searched as two terms. E.g. a name like XY@AB-CD is not found as a whole. The sign @ avoids that the whole phrase can be found (e.g. “XY@AB-CD”) or in a good ranking (result page 10 or more) as well as no fragments like AB-CD in a phrase like “XY@AB-CD” can´t be found in Connections.

The search in connections should be improved to be able to use special characters.

The search should be improved: see similar ideas here:

The problem is, the hashtags in comments are not recognised as hashtags, and could not be searched and found at all.

Search - Enable Wildcards as first character in a query (e.g. *nections, ?onnections)

Community search has issues with hyphens and project numbers
