HCL Connections | Product 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.

Make My Drive, All Files and Folders available in every Windows Save and Open Dialog

Only certain applications see the Connections My Drive and Connections Cloud options in the Save and Open dialog boxes.  When these don't appear in an application, you cannot save or open files directly in the application with Connections.  Adobe products are a good example.  Others include IBM tools such as Rapid Application Developer.  Neither of these give you direct access to the Connections Cloud file system and therefore make you  save the file in an intermediate place and upload it later.  It takes two steps when one should suffice.

    This option should be available to Connections On-premise also.

    It is a MUST feature!

    We tried other cloud storage services that have this feature, we will give up Connestions Files for that.

    Indeed this is a lack and Adobe is not the only example.

    Microsoft OneNote and Microsoft Visio has the same problem.

    The MS Office plug-in only works with Excel, Word, and PowerPoint...
