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.
Customize Community Mail Footer Links Using Variables
While the links in the footer of community notifications can be customized using literal URLs in the associated FTL file, it would be nice to be able to use variables. Using a variable would allow for URL changes within the environment without having to update the FTL file.
For example, within the broadcastMail.ftl the unsubscribe link is set by the unsubscribe.community.url variable by default. If you would prefer that the unsubscribe link refer to the News settings, you can change “unsubscribe.community.url” to “https://example.com/news”. However, the request is that the customization could be made by using a variable such as “digest.newsRoot”. This is just one example. It would be preferable if all such notification customizations supported the use of variables.
