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.

Ask user to confirm that he is aware that he is uploading to an externally accessible community when using the plugins to upload a file to an external community

There is no differentiation between internal/external communities in the plugins. Therefor users can easily place documents in external communities without realizing they do so. Ideally a user should be prompted (popup with OK/CANCEL) when dropping or saving a file in an external community that he is sharing information externally and whether he is aware and ok with that. PReferably with the name of the community.

External communities are a special category of communities as they can cause data leaks an idadvertent data compliance risks. This should be more visible to users.
