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.

Alert for working on the same document, using the IBM Connections File Sync plugin

If your using the IBM Connections File Sync plugin and you open documents in Finder/Explorer, there's a chance someone else is working on the same document. If so, 2 files will be created. You don't want that. Is it possible to receive an alert (email or a pop up alert), if the document is already opened by someone else?

    sorry to report that we will not implement this but soon we will release and update to the desktop plugin, that will prompt users to lock a file when opening it on the desktop.
