HCL Connections | Product 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.

Upload the file to a Community and double click the file to preview. Unfortunately the document cannot be opened.

A created document in Office 365 should be opened in preview without any error message.

    It's regardless of a comment.

    could you confirm whether this waa with a document that contained comments? We know that once you leave a comment in a document, the viewer has a problem. But it sounds like this is with any document now with or without comments...

    I tested and found this behavior with word documents created in Office 365.

    Hi, which type of document was used to test this (word, ppt, xls) or does it apply to all three? We know there are certain restrictions that are being introduced by ongoing updates to the MS Office formats. We are evaluating how we can best respond to the ongoing changes.
