: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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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).

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)

Remove the spalsh screen

:Notes Client / Other
: splashscreen
Martin Dover285 - 29 2008 / (10)
I am all for gratuitous self-promotion, but I have already bought the product. Is Lotus Notes still living in 1994?

Why does a dirty big splash screen have to dominate everything else my computer is doing. If you really must have a screen to tell the user ...

Change the look and feel for classic Notes apps

:Notes Client / Other
: notes classic applications look and feel
Zoltan Szabo5573 - 23 2011 / (10)
Our competitors used to say that classic Notes apps are look ugly. So, as todasy trend is to make apps not only working well, but look shiny, the UI generated for classic Notes apps should be changed also.
I know that we can make some great design ...

:Notes Client / Other
: home lotus users
Steve McDonagh385 - 22 2008 / (10)
I was looking at this idea .. ideajam.net/IdeaJam/P/ij.nsf/0/834A4BA0093A41F48625752600585353 and this thought occured to me. In the battle for Hearts and minds of users. I think we need to make Lotus an @home as well as an @work product this gives users the continuity of useabiliity between the two spheres ...

SSO between Lotus Notes Client and Domino HTTP Access

:Notes Client / Other
: sso, lotus notes, domino server, http
Marius Jaeger1947 - 09 2009 / (10)
In the Lotus Notes Client I can open any URL by typing it into the addressbar. Why there is no SSO between my Lotus Notes Session and the URL on a Domino Server in the same Domino Directory?

Disable the default encryption for new databases

:Notes Client / Other
: notes
Mika Heinonen3551 - 24 2007 / (9)
When you create a new database, the encryption setting defaults to "Medium Encryption for Current Username". It should default to "No Encryption". Many people who are new or not so experienced in Notes don't know that encryption can make all your documents and data lost forever, if you lose your ...

:Notes Client / Other
: out of office, end date
Rara Tata470 - 03 2008 / (9)
Be able to specify an Out of office without an end date.
Useful for people on a long sickness leave or even someone who has left the company.

Since MAPI-support has been removed, Notes should have a standard API to access email functions

:Notes Client / Other
: mapi, vim
Craig Wiseman21811 - 19 2007 / (9)
MAPI-functionality was removed in R6. In order to support customers better and compete with Outlook, there should be a standard API-based way for 3rd party apps to access basic Notes email funtions.
It is incredibly frustrating to install many many 3rd party apps (Olympus' DSs Player Pro is biting me at ...

Henry Ferlauto3847 - 18 2008 / (9)
Create a small, end-user friendly applciation to essentially run all of the "n*.exe" programs in the Notes program folder.
In particular, the abiltiy to run "the big three" maintenance applications against one's local databases:
(1) Fixup
(2) Compact
(3) Updall
If you want to go for broke, ...

Wrap mail as attachment

:Notes Client / Other
: attachment, mail, outlook
John de Giorgio749 - 15 2009 / (9)
When converting Outlook users to Notes one feature asked for consistently in my experience is the ability to wrap an e-mail thread into an attachment and send it to someone. I am not talking about the mail history but something more.

I am not sure how it works in ...

Enable search for multiple notes databases simultaniusly

:Notes Client / Other
: search multiple databases
SUMA SHASTRY645 - 20 2009 / (9)
Currently, Lotus notes has search facility depending on a single database. i.e if you want to search the mail/content having a word, you would have to first open the database (nsf file) and then search. It would be good if we have a search enabled for all the databases you ...

Include mini progress bar in workspace icons (new workspace)

:Notes Client / Other
: workspace icons, workspace
Bas van Gestel2808 - 05 2010 / (9)
 As part of the new workspace IBM might (and IMHO should) develop for Lotus Notes, a nice feature would be to have progress bars on the workspace icons, indicating that the application is currently replicating or copying.
Kinda like the Installing progress bars on the iPhone icons.
