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.

Prevent files with the same name from being uploaded or created within the same community

Currently you can upload a file to a community, or create a file within a community and then upload or create another file with the exact same name within the community.  The customer would like this functionality changed so that it works as follows:


- Upload a file called myfile.docx to a community.
- Then create a folder and upload myfile.docx to the folder.
- Connections recognizes that there's already a file of the same name in the community and automatically renames it to something like myfile(1).docx, or notifies the user that a file with the same name has already been uploaded to the community and gives them the option to rename it.
