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.
NNTP is an extremely mature, reliable and efficient way of transfering data for forums and newsgroups. When our organisation was forced to switch from NNTP to Connections-based Forums, we saw an enormous drop in Forum participation and information sharing. NNTP is especially well-suited to technical , scientific and engineering organisations, where users need to share large amounts of complex data. The Forums feature in current releases of Connections is very oriented towards sharing "soft" business and social information; it is almost unusable for technical teams.
