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.

Status Under Consideration

Connections Docs Editor, an user has the option "Share" as well ... as button or at "File > Share".

Please enhance this feature also for editors on a file which was shared with the option "Allow others to share this file" by the owner.

The owner of the file is able to share the file.
Other users with whom the file was shared as editor, see the option as well when editing the file.
However, they only get the error message "You are not owner of this document."


From end user point of view, IBMDocs Editor is an integral part of the web application "Connections", users do not differ between IBM Connections and IBMDocs Editor or Viewer.  Therefore, the "sharing" a file feature must be consistent overall.

Please change IBMDocs Editor and implement "Share" with the same feature scope as "share a file" in IBM Connections or remove the "Share" feature in the Docs Editor and just rely on the common sharing feature in Connections.
