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.
Build option to remove and reorder apps in a community in Connections 7
In Connections 7 the new community homepage is the Highlights page. This page does not allow you to remove apps from the community (which was possible with the overview page) . It only allows you to remove the widget from the highlights page but that still leaves the application in the community, as a tab and as a usable element in that community. We need to be able to fully remove an app when it is not being used to prevent users from using it if not desired and from cluttering op de app dropdown/tabs in the top.
Similarly the overview page allowed you to influence the order in which the apps where shown on the tabs/app dropdown as it took the order in which the various apps were ordered on the overview page. With the overview page gone you cannot set your preferred order of tabs anymore either. This means that your tabs might be listing apps hardly or never being used first while important or heavily used apps of your community get relegated to the 'more" dropdown. This makes working with the community a lot harder.
