Deferred Mail

:Notes Client / Mail
: mail, delay, queue
Sjef Bosman2089 - 26 2007 / (26)
Just another old idea: create a mail, enter a date/time when the mail should be sent, click Send, the mail will stay in mail.box until it's time to release it, then the server (or client) to send it out. And of course a way to create such a mail in ...

In case of client crash - zap the need to use zappers!

:Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: automatically, kill, notes, tasks
Robert Ibsen Voith4084 - 21 2008 / (25)
Not often, but sometimes, the Notes client crash! When this happen often some Notes-related tasks like ntaskldr.exe doesn't crash with it. When you try to restart the Notes client, the existance of these tasks in memory hinder a successful restart. So, for ages there has been tools like ZapNotes around to ...

Remove IMAP Support From The Notes Client

:Notes Client / Other
: imap, feature, client, disable, rant
Gregory Engels1762 - 18 2009 / (23)
Unless it is being significantly improved, please disable IMAP on the client.
(make an Debug_enable_imap_client notes.ini setting for those who care)
Explanation: some People go and download the Notes Client trial code, and in the setup dialog there are being asked about IMAP server. Since 99,9 % of Notes ...

Make a STOP button

:Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: client, ctrl+break, interface
Nathan T. Freeman2636 - 19 2007 / (23)
Make a STOP button next to the Open button that does exactly what Ctrl+Break does.  Right now, that's just the super-secret keystroke for power users only.
UPDATE: Just to clarify, there IS a Stop button in the toolbar today.  But it's not useful, because when your client is in ...

Attachments placed in their own pane and not at the bottom of emails

:Notes Client / Mail
: attachment, attachments
Karen Hooper4022 - 25 2008 / (21)
When you open an email, whether received internally or externally it would be great if all the attachment/s were positioned in a pane at the top of the email (I believe Outlook does this and DWA does it but puts at the bottom which I'm ok with).  I am sick ...

Saving E-mails outside of Lotus Notes

:Notes Client / Mail
: e-mail, export, saving, windows, xp
Mike Rosenbaum1825 - 16 2008 / (21)
In Microsoft Outlook/Exchange you have the option of saving messages outside of Outlook into your files system with your other documents (Word Documents, Spreadsheets, etc).  You can then open up the documents and they open in Outlook/Exchange.
I would like Lotus Notes to be able to do the same ...

Right-click - Paste Special

:Notes Client / Mail
: right-click
Henry Ferlauto3847 - 05 2007 / (19)
While editing an e-mail (or anything else for that matter), I would like [Paste Special...] added to the right-click menu for the mouse.  I am frequently pasting from the web and other sources and need to remove the formatting. 

Lotus Forgot Series: Add basic development functionality back into the Notes client.

:Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: designer, web 2.0, notes client
David Hablewitz15217 - 13 2011 / (16)
We don't need a Designer client for the Mac or Linux. We need one for the people.  
Yes, make the Notes client as it once was in the days before R5 when the ability to create applications was an integral part of the Notes client.  What would it include?  ...

Spam Rule Option: "Add to Domino Domain Spamlist"

:Notes Client / Mail
: spam, rules, auto-populate
Atilla ÍztŘrk659 - 17 2011 / (15)
In a Domino Domain, it would be nice when the user can populate his own spam object as a domino domain-based rule.
So, each company builds up its own Spam Database automatically for a cleaner mail.box ;)
Addition (thnx, Kenneth):
Of course the submission of a Spamrule by ...

New Workspace

:Notes Client / Other
: workspace
Thomas Leriche1876 - 07 2009 / (15)
I'm really tired of the 1980's design of the workspace.  It has served Notes users well for over 20 years, but the time has come for a major and I mean MAJOR overhaul.  I look at the slick interfaces for iPhones, Blackberry, even Windows and wonder why my Notes workspace ...

Please update the look & feel of the standard templates?

:Notes Client / Other Database Applications
: templates, document, library, journal
Craig Wiseman21811 - 04 2007 / (15)
When trying to sell Notes/Domino it'd be really helpful if the standard templates (Discussion/DocLibrary/Journal/Team Room, etc.) were updated to a modern Look & Feel and looked/worked work consistently between the Notes client and web. Maybe a little ajax-y?

Check availability before sending invitations

:Notes Client / Calendar
: calendar, scheduling
Bill Schroeder736 - 18 2007 / (14)
When a user attempts to send a meeting invitation, Notes should first check the availability of all of those users invited & also check both the availability of the room & access to the room. If any of the invitees are not shown as available OR if th room is ...

Document Locking

:Notes Client / Other
: database properties box, document locking
Dwain Wuerfel2755 - 04 2010 / (14)
There is a serious need for IBM to come up with a fix related to document locking and this is not a fix, but will allow some relief to the administrators/developers.
Currently, only those identified as having Manager level access can actually unlock a document and in our organization ...

Export to PDF from Notes (and not just from Symphony)

:Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: pfd, export
Knud H°jslet3343 - 21 2007 / (13)
Quite a disappointment to see, that the new feature "Export to PDF" is only available from the productivity editors and not from notes-core (document and viewlevel).

Performance Tuning FAQ or Utility for Notes 8

:Notes Client / Other
: performance, notes_client, tuning
Ben Langhinrichs7009 - 07 2008 / (13)
There have been many complaints about the slow start-up and response times for Notes 8, and many rejoinders that say the problem is one of tuning or settings or configuration.  It would be great to have a "Tuning FAQ" (as suggested in this thread) or even "Check up ...

Eliminate modal dialog boxes!

:Notes Client / Other
: modal, dialog, dialogbox
David Hablewitz15217 - 19 2008 / (13)
Get rid of all those modal dialog boxes.  There are times when it is desirable or necessary, but those are rare.  And Notes 8 makes it worse.  For example, in previous releases clicking on the location then Edit Current would open the location document as another tab.  Now, it opens ...

Could we have a standalone freeware NSF viewer?

:Notes Client / Other
: nsf, databases
Gavin Bollard1561 - 24 2007 / (12)
I've often thought that it would be good to have a freeware notes viewer that I could supply people with for offline reading of Notes databases.   I don't think it would need to be very powerful, certainly I wouldn't expect web rendering or lotusscript (ie: no form load events etc).

Allow users to have multiple signature files which they can easily choose from

:Notes Client / Mail
: email, signature
Alan Lepofsky8315 - 02 2007 / (11)
I'd like to have a drop down list which enables me to choose the signature I want added to the email. (or blog/forum post)   Today I get around this by using my Paste Information application, but I'd rather have this integrated.

I wish the Productivity Editors could read Office 2007 files

:Notes Client / Other
: office, compatibility
Craig Wiseman21811 - 20 2007 / (11)
To allow us to really use them as replacments for Office, it seems to me like we'd need to be able to natively read/write:
Office 97-2007
Word Perfect 9 - 12
OpenOffice (not just ODF)

Warn/prevent user when using non-autorized chars in folder name

:Notes Client / Mail
: folder name, folder
Mathieu Pape7675 - 05 2013 / (11)
When a user creates a folder containing (\) or (/) for example, he/she is not warned that this is not authorized, same if total folder length is too long, ... . The system allows it to be created and thus can generate a lot of issues. I have a user here with ...
