HCL Connections 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.

In the community app area - text labels UX are mixed up

When moving a community app within the page layout - it has the following options: 

  • Move to Previous Column
  • Move to Next Column

However, when you move to previous, it goes to NEXT.

When you move to NEXT column, it goes to PREVIOUS column


It's like the navigation of that is reading from Right to Left, and people generally read from Left to Right in most languages. The current way therefore is UX illogical.

BTW - this has been investigated and it is working "as designed" (that is for Chinese devs that read from right to left - which is not most readers) - and the IBM dev agreed that it was off, but did not want to fix. This type of UX reflects poorly overall on the product.
