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.

Let Files Widgets Open Links In Same Tab

Files and Files Explorer widgets currently have links with target="_blank".

As a result, if the user clicks on a filename, the browser opens a new tab, redirectes the user to the community holding the file and then opens the Docs Viewer. That takes a lot of time and the user looses his context. If closing the file viewer, the user is left with a view of all community files, which can be confusing.

So please, add an option to open the file viewer right on the Engagement Center page. That would be much faster and browsing files is much easier for users.
