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.

File explorer widget should show a message for non invited memebers

After adding more channels in Highlights at the Files Explorer widget, but I am not a member of the community, for example, it would be nice if the info is displayed to the end-user instead of just remaining blank.


1) Create community with members A (owner) and B (member)

2) Add Highlights app

3) Identify a restricted community that A has access to but B does not

4) Identify a community that both A and B have access to

5) Add files to both the community from 3 and 4.

6) As A, access Highlights app from community from 1 and 2 and add the Files Explorer widget

7) Edit the widget and add two sources - the community from 3 and the community from 4

8) Compare the display from user A's perspective and user B's perspective

User A can see all the files for User B will show empty page with out any messages.
