Sometimes it is important to present (display in a view) an individual collection of documents to a user.
Right now you can put them into a folder, which needs to be "private" so that it does not mix with other users, and you have to remove it afterwards.
It would be really useful for reports if there would be a simple function to do this automatically like:

Call Workspace.ShowDocs(DocColl as NotesdocumentCollection, ViewTemplate as String)

I think this could be solved by having a grid-like view-type as the other entry here in ideaJAM (title "add a grid view design element" and URL { Link } Tools like IntelliVIEW (its now called something else) from Synaptris uses this grid-control to make it very easy to create ad-hoc reports based upon the *existing* views in a Notes database. The grid will in other words read of the column values and let you manipulate the results *without* bothering the original Notes view or put some severe load on the server, other than looking at the view ...

You mean, like doing a SELECT FROM in runtime? Whoa. Wouldn't that be too relational? ;-)

Would be great for full text search results.
