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.

"Forum application default view" does not work function as expected

Under Community Actions > Edit Community > Forums you have the following settings:

Communities overview page > Show topic list by default


Forum application default view > Show forum list by default


From the Overview page if you click on the "View All" link in the Forums widget the application displays the list of the topics, not the list of forums as specified in the "Forum application default view" setting. It seems that since the community forums are being accessed via the Overview page the "Community overview page" setting takes precedent over the "Forum application default view" setting. When you click on the on the Forum tab in the community, you're taken to a list of the community forums as expected.


This seems to be working as designed, but it may be a little misleading to end users. In the future, we would like the "Forum application default view" to take precedent over the "Communities overview page" setting even when accessing a community's forums by clicking on "View All" in the Forums widget on the Overview page.
