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.

Preview file rather than download file when clicking on file name in wiki

As a Connections user, I want a file to be shown in Connections rather than being downloaded when I click on file name in Wiki because the purpose of Connections is to collaborate on files rather than distributing them to client computers.

When a file is inserted into a Wiki page, the file type logo and the file name appear, followed by a "| Show details".
Clicking on the file name will trigger a download of the file. It would be more intuitive if clicking on the file would show the file in Connections Files and there would be a separate link to explicitly download the file.
