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.
As of Spring 2018, Sametime is now developed/supported via HCL.
Years ago, AppFusions built some Sametime integrations with 3rd party tools, exactly to what you are describing (and a bit more). Here's a video (and swap out Atlassian JIRA/Confluence for IBM Connections). We would be delighted to re-create these integrations for IBM Connections, per demand. We of course still have our old code from that, and would update for IBM CNX cloud and v6.X.
In fact, I have recently discussed this with HCL engineers - customers are the squeaky wheel to push us to make it so though, as a newly released, sustained and supported solution for many. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are serious about this. Hope to hear from you!
