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.

Add a config option to connections mobile to open links into Safari

For some deployments it would be helpful if a link that i tap on opens in Safari, not embedded.

This is especially the case for the situation that a customer uses an MDM-based secure browser (which then would be activated) or if the customer uses pages that are supported by apps (which would allow the app to be launched).

    Hello HCL, this idea is based on the issue, that sharepoint links cannot be opened within the Connections app, because we cannot get access to the necessary system keyring on the iPhone. Please have a look if this can be handeled with the new sharepoint integration in Connections 7. Thanks!
