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.
You will be able to deploy Connections 8 without component pack. However, there will be elements that will not be displayed (e.g., Top Updates, Important to Me bar) or where the old version will be shown (e.g., Search results page). We would highly encourage all of our customers to deploy Component Pack so that users can take advantage of all the latest features and user experience.
We are evaluating giving admins the ability to install Connections 8 with the old UI shown to users, with the goal being to give time for customizations before rolling out the new UI to users.
